Introducing Voiceovers into Your Wedding

Introducing Voiceovers into Your Wedding

You have a wonderful wedding planned with flowers, food, invitations, reception, the dress, the car, the venue and the entertainment.

Needless to say, you want everything to be perfect and memorable for you and your guests. You want people to leave inspired and feeling tingly about all the magical moments that happened on your special day. Your expectations are high.

Your smile sends the message of, “You’d better not mess this up,” as you sit down with your planner and make it clear what you want him or her to accomplish.

Let’s skip to the entertainment – the special time when everyone is ready to eat, drink and party. The last thing you want is to be introduced by someone who does not know how to pronounce your new last name (let alone pronounces it in a dry, boring tone).

You want to get the crowd to hang onto every last word. Then your wedding planner introduces something different–something you never invited into your list of to-do’s–a voiceover artist to help bring your ideas to life. Hold on. It will make sense. Keep reading.

Did you know that, along with lending voices to radio ads, commercials and audio books, voiceover artists also serve as narrators for grand entrances and special dances? We also can be helpful in bringing a creative approach to those “How We Met” video slide shows.

With voice styles ranging from quirky, warm, and fuzzy to light and sentimental, it all can be accomplished to your satisfaction. So, you ask, why would I want a voice over added to my bill? Is it really necessary? Well, yes. Here is what can be done for your big day:

A voiceover artist can personalize, prepare and deliver your own special “Love Story” that will captivate and entertain your guests, as well as creating well wishes for members of your family and close friends who are unable to attend your wedding.

Let them listen to the “where to send your gift” instructions instead of having an awkward conversation. Sounding more inviting yet? Voiceover artists assist you in communicating what you really want to say but, in the midst of your wedding nervousness, can’t find the words to express.

Don’t want to pay for postage for all the postcards that you will feel pressured to pick up during your honeymoon? Send an audio excerpt of all the beautiful things you see, instead. A picture montage can be created to compliment your message. Send it to your friends and let the message be passed on through social media sites.

Weddings are becoming more non-traditional. Now, famous bridal party processions with a twist of a dance party theme send everyone into a trance. The importance of being “neat and reserved” is thrown out the window. Who would have ever thought that this would become more of the norm, as opposed to pomp and circumstance?

The reality of couples and their families having a unique experience for generations to come is setting the precedent, and voiceover artists are a part of this trend.

There will be no more stuffy, predictable speeches. Your voiceover service can be one of the many highlights that you will want show off to everyone.

Voiceover services can be flexible, either offered in person or by playing an audio clip. This service allows for your coordinator to be more flexible with your budget. It lightens your workload and helps you to focus on all the work you will have to do. Consider adding voiceover craft into your plans for your wedding.

You won’t be disappointed. Who knows? Maybe you will want to get on the voice train after you see how beneficial it can be.
