Videography Do’s and Don’ts

 

If your planning on getting your wedding captured on film, don’t worry, Wedlog’s here to help. Not that we need to tell you this, but there are some things to look out for when booking your videographers. So without any further ado, here are some do’s and don’ts.

 

 

  • Don’t wait till the last moment! 

 

 

Plan in advance, making bookings early, especially during the wedding season, (aka winter, aka seafood wali shaadi). It’s a busy time, you don’t want to be the only one with a wedding film that you regret, or one with really bad transitions that you’d be ashamed to show your friends and family, or worse have a video you don’t even want to watch yourself.

 

 

  • Do look at the Videographers Portfolio before hiring them.

 

 

Don’t just look at the shots also look for the sound quality! Especially if you have any speeches planned or a skit during the dances. You want to make sure you get every bit of it. Also look out for the editing style, you don’t want a video with really bad cheesy transitions.

 

 

  • Don’t Hire a videographer just because he’s cheap.

 

 

You might save a few bucks now but consider your wedding video as an investment. It should be a video that you’d have fond memories of and one that you would want to re-watch again and again.

 

 

  • Do take out the time and meet your Videographer.

 

 

YOU NEED MEET THE TEAM BEFORE DECIDING ANYTHING because at the end of the day you want someone you’re comfortable with, if you don’t like him then why have him at your wedding right?

 

 

  • Don’t book your videographer just because he’s expensive and everyone recommends him.

 

 

Don’t just hire them “Kyun ke posh wali feeling athi hai us say” (because he sounds premium), look at his work instead. We can guarantee you there are many talented wedding videography teams that can even bundle photography packages. Yes, they do say “jithna gur dalo uthna meeta” (the more sugar you

 add the sweeter it is), While that may be true in some situations it doesn’t always work that way. 

 

  1. Do take the time and sit down with your videographer.

 

 If there’s anything special that’s being planned, make sure to tell him in advance. If there’s any special people that you want them to focus on let them know! If you give them the right directions, you can bet they will be more comfortable and know exactly what to capture!

A SIX Month Grooming Guide for the Groom

 

The bride always steals the show at a wedding right? Well, we wouldn’t say it’s your turn to steal the show, but yeah we promise you will be noticed.

 

6 months is a long time, it’s also not such a long time. Which is exactly why you need to utilise this time to get some things on track. We obviously can’t stress this enough, which is why we keep repeating it “you only get married once ” well at least we hope so. A lot can happen in 6 months, but it also depends on if you make it happen within that time. So let’s dive deep into what can be accomplished in this time frame. Now do remember whatever we list down is something that truly can be accomplished, it’s not impossible, bigger miracles have happened in less than the time were advising you, so honestly there’s no excuse.

 

 Explore a skincare routine

 

 Let’s face it, most men just don’t take care of their skin, they’re out in the sun, sometimes they don’t even wash their face, and sometimes they don’t even care about their acne. Yes, there are the exceptions but the majority of the men just don’t. Please don’t think we are endorsing fairness creams here that’s not the point. We simply mean taking care of your skin. After all, you do want to look good for your wedding, right? Well in that case it’d be a good idea to look into some skin care products. These products can help you with your acne, they can keep dirt away that will settle down into your pores and they can even help with oily or dry skin. 6 months is enough time to get you in peak skin condition.  Do it bro.

 

 Get your hair game plan in place

 

If you’ve always kept the same hairstyle since school, maybe now is a good time to shake things up. After all, you don’t want to just risk going to the stylist on the day of your wedding and leave your hair’s fate in their hands only to come out of the salon unhappy. You want to come out with a hairstyle that you want to flaunt. Well 6 months is a good time to start experimenting. Who knows you might just find a new hairstyle you’ll want to keep forever. Or at least until your second marriage if it ever comes to that, we hope not.

 

 Get the smile of your dreams

 

You’ll be smiling in a lot of photos, and even if you’re the type to not show your teeth, when weddings festivities are going on, you might not always get a warning before the flash goes off and the moment is forever captured. You want those pearls to shine right? Well, take this time and visit a dentist, get your cleaning done, some scaling, some whitening. After your through you’ll want to show your teeth off just like those people in the close up toothpaste ads.

 

Consider hitting the weights

 

If you’ve always been skinny, or if you’ve always been overweight, 6 months can do wonders if you start picking up weights or adding an exercise regime in your routine. In 6 months you can lose a lot of pounds or gain. Work with a personal trainer and you’ll be surprised with the results. Of course it goes without saying that you will need to eat right too, consult your trainer and ask for meal plans that will help you achieve your goals. Surprise everyone at your wedding, surprise your bride to be, you’ll be amazed the reaction you’ll get.

 

Do Something About Those Hands And Feet

 

Proper hygiene is always important, regardless of whether you’re getting married or not. Now if you are not the type to get manicures or pedicures done at least try integrating them into your life. If you bite your nails, 6 months is a long time to grow them back. The idea might not click well with everyone but hey its 2020 get on with the times. It’s cool now. I mean after all that, the ring will go on your finger. You want your fingernail to be dirty? Or looking like a rabid dog that has been chewing on your nails for years? Yeah didn’t think so. You don’t need to go crazy and over do it just get it done once a month. Who knows you might just enjoy it. Remember women like men who take care of themselves.

Suit Rules All Men Should Know

by admin

 

Always get your suit stitchedInstead of buying one off the shelf opt to get a suit stitched. Take some time off, go to your tailor and have him take the right measurements, you’ll be surprised how good you’ll look when everything just fits. However, if you do buy one off the rack, make sure the shoulders fit.

 

Use a pocket squareAccessorise your suit with a pocket square, but make sure the fabric and pattern doesn’t not match that of your tie. Plus, it makes you look more sophisticated.

 

Unbutton when sitting downAlways remember to unbutton your suit when sitting down, it prevents your suit from getting ruined and if you’ve spent some good money on your suit you want to make sure to take good care of it. Also, it’s just easier to move around.

 

Last button should always be openNever button up all your buttons, leave the last one open, it makes you look less stiff, not to mention if you’ve got a nice belt on you, show that off.

 

Belt ColorAlways match your belt to the color of your shoes. Pick a nice belt, something thin and sleek, make sure to match the color of your belt as close as you can with your shoes. Never ever, wear black belts with brown shoes or vice versa.

 

Protect your chestWhile you’re at it, get your vest stitched too. Now a vest has other uses too, other than just its aesthetic appeal. For one, it makes your look more sophisticated, second, it keeps you snug when its winter.

 

Say no to baggy pantsThat’s right, your pants should just touch your shoes. It’s more fashionable, plus it makes your look sleeker. However, if you’re a little more conservative then the maximum length should be till your laces, no longer.

 

No hairy legsWhen wearing socks make sure you wear socks that rise up high, you don’t want people to look at your hairy legs, this is a situation most people face when they cross their legs and sit. Other than that, just flaunt your socks while you’re at it too!

 

Double ventsIf you have a large figure, going for a double vent will make you look more flattering, and the best part is, it gives you enough room to do the “hand in pocket” thing. So effortless. It also makes you look cool.

 

Wear an undershirtIf your sweat glands are overactive, it’s always a good idea to wear an undershirt so that when you take your suit jacket off you always look sharp and well kempt. Nobody likes sweat pits. However, make sure the undershirt has a low neck. Nothing ruins the appearance of a suit more than an undershirt peeking through the neck.
