The Biggest Wedding Regret of 2015

The 2015 wedding season was an absolute blast! Here in Winnipeg, Manitoba, wedding season spans from late spring to early fall, with a couple outliers filling in the blanks. June, July, August and September are peak months where we are consistently shooting weddings. As we rang in 2016 nearly two weeks ago, a series of new surveys have been published which shed light on what 2015 bride's wish they would have done leading up to their wedding.

According to Brides.com, arguably the biggest wedding planning resource on the internet, the number one regret of brides married in 2014 and 2015 was the failure to hire a wedding videographer. Wedding videography was considered an additional expense that was unnecessary, or too costly, thus relegated to the back burner. Here at Prairie Film Co. we can't imagine a wedding happening without a team of videographers! We are convinced that you shouldn't cut wedding videography, rather you should look for a videographer who can tell your story with precision and creativity.

Apart from Brides.com, both the Knot and Wedding Ideas Magazine recognize the failure to hire a videographer as the primary regret for 2015 brides. If you've yet to be sold on the prospect of hiring a videographer, allow us to give you our perspective as to why videography is so important, and why we decided to hire a team of videographers for our 2016 wedding.
