video wedding invitations from reel invitations [Page 1 of 1]

Grooms and brides can spice up their wedding invitations with more than ribbons and nice paper, courtesy of Judith George. George, owner of Reel Invitations, was working as a video editor when she found that she not only enjoyed the video editing process, but that she was particularly interested in the documentary format; people's stories, and -specifically- the story of how couples met. A company was born: Reel Invitations, a new way for the engaged bride and groom invite guests to their wedding.

The 21st century wedding invitation

Couples are always on the lookout for unique and innovative wedding invitations - an alternative to the traditional card in the mail, and a way to provide wedding guests with a lasting memento of the occasion.

Reel Invitations offers a completely new approach to the wedding invitation: a video filmed, edited, and packaged by the company. In the form of a DVD wedding invite, it can include footage of the couple inviting their guests to the wedding, sharing the story of how they met (or the proposal, moving in, or the moment they "knew" - whatever story is significant to them), introducing family and the wedding party, providing directions, key informational links, registry information, a preview of activities, and an RSVP.


George realizes that most couples will not be on-camera veterans, so she assures interested grooms and brides that the filming setup is "much like having a conversation with a friend", and that anything can be edited out. The filming typically takes about two hours, a time frame that also allows for multiple takes of each segment.

Reel Invitations offers a rough cut of the footage with photo montages, as well as a final review of the DVD and any other accessories the groom and bride have requested so that the engaged couple can view the final product before it goes out. Your feedback will help to shape the end result.

Paper or video?

With Reel Invitations, couples don't have to choose between video and paper invitations, but can have the best of both worlds. They offer a package that includes a DVD and high quality paper invitations for those who don't wish to abandon tradition. Alternatively, if you already have your own paper invitations, there is a video-only option that can be packaged to match the invitations you've got.

The nitty gritty

The video invitation will cost a bit more than paper-only, but with links, directions, and the priceless keepsake that this option provides, you're getting a lot for your dollar. The DVD is also a nice keepsake for you to own as couple for anniversaries to come. Production, including 50 DVDs cost about $850. The next 50 DVDs are $5 each. A lesser price for the paperless option can be arranged. Reel Invitations asks interested couples to contact the company at least six to eight weeks in advance of when they'd like to have the invitations.
