John and Carly Music Wedding Vide Invite

photo(1)

Hi!!!

As you know, John and I are getting married THIS WEEK and we can’t wait to see you there!!

What you probably don’t know is, we have invited the team from Music Wedding Videos to film everyone enjoying the day, singing, dancing and generally having a great time to the song ‘The Time (Dirty Bit)’ by Black Eyed Peas

Here is the song we’ve chosen for you to get familiar with it …

How this works is, the guys will be equipped with printed lyrics and speakers on the day; they’ll be looking for volunteers to singalong to a couple of lines from the track on camera. They’ll then turn the footage into a music video of the wedding day. Don’t worry too much about learning all the words as as we mentioned they’ll have some printed on the day and after playing a short section of the song a couple of times you’ll soon pick it up.

You’ll have a few go’s at getting it right, and they’re pretty good at editing to make you look awesome. Your singing voice doesn’t matter either because they’re not going to use the audio – the real song will be played over the video footage of you singing along.

If you’re really up for it, feel free to learn a line or two from the song (or even the whole thing)…

The lyrics are included on that version so, if you want to, you can rehearse  them to perfection! Alternatively there is a link to the lyrics here too – The Time (Dirty Bit) – Black Eyed Peas lyrics
(The lyrics are also shown at the bottom of this page…)

How up for it are you?

Mad for it!

OK, so you fancy yourself as a bit of a performer or a pop-star in another life?

Here’s what you can do:

  • Watch the video
  • Learn the lyrics
  • Practice in front of the mirror
  • Choreograph a dance routine
  • Get together with some like-minded guests to do something as a group

We are looking for people to (willingly) come forward beforehand to be given specific lines to learn, and we will then forward everyone their own lyrics to perfect 🙂 If any of you do want to perform something special, please let us know or contact the MWV guys at info@musicweddingvideos.com so they can plan it into the shoot.

Happy to get involved on the day

Here’s what we recommend:

  • Watch the video
  • Try to learn at least one or two lines from the song
  • Grab the MWV guys on the day and let them know you want to get involved

A little bit camera-shy

We realise some people either don’t feel super comfortable in front of cameras, especially video cameras. Don’t worry – the MWV guys are very sensitive to this and won’t force you to get involved if you don’t feel comfortable. But if it’s not too painful, we do hope you can at least give us a smile or a wave so that we can remember you on our special video. And remember – if it’s your singing voice you’re worried about, they don’t actually use that in the final video – you’re just miming along to the real song. Here’s what we recommend:

  • Don’t worry too much about learning the lyrics
  • On the day, see if you’re in the right mood. If not, just let the MWV guys know if you’d prefer to just be an ‘extra’ without performing, or if you don’t want to be in the video at all.

We think this is a really fun way to record and re-live our big day for years to come and hope you’ll all get involved in some way.

Still not sure how this works?

Here are a couple of examples of a finished video from previous weddings once they have been edited and effects have been put on…

Let’s make this a wedding video to remember!

 

Love

Carly and John

PPS Here are those lyrics…

“The Time (Dirty Bit) – Black Eyed Peas “

I had the time of my life And I never felt this way before
And I swear this is true
And I owe it all to you
Oh, I had the time of my life
And I never felt this way before
And I swear this is true
And I owe it all to you

Dirty bit Dirty bit
I came up in here rock,
light a fire, make it hot
I don’t wanna take no pictures,
I just want to take some shots
So come on, let’s go,
let’s lose control Let’s do it all night
’til we can’t do it no more

People rockin’ to the sound,
turn it up and watch it pound
We gon’ rock it to the top until the roof come burnin’ down
Yeah, it’s hot in here,
the temperature
Has got these ladies gettin’ freakier

I got freaky, freaky baby, I was chillin’ with my ladies
I didn’t come to get bougie, I came here to get crazy
I was born to get wild, that’s my style If you didn’t know that,
well, baby, now you know now

‘Cause I’m havin’ a good time with you I’m tellin’ you
I had the time of my life
And I never felt this way before
And I swear this is true
And I owe it all to you
Oh, I had the time of my life
And I never felt this way before
And I swear this is true
And I owe it all to you
Dirty bit Dirty bit
All these girls they like my swagger, they callin’ me Mick Jagger
I be rollin’ like a stone, jet setter, jet lagger
We ain’t messin’ with no maggots,
messin’ with the baddest
Chicks in the club, honey, what’s up?

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the baddest of them all?
Yeah, it’s gotta be the apple, I’m the Mac daddy y’all
Haters better step back, ladies, download your app
I’m the party application, rock it just like that

‘Cause I’m havin’ a good time with you I’m tellin’ you
I had the time of my life
And I never felt this way before
And I swear this is true
And I owe it all to you
Oh, I had the time of my life And I never felt this way before
And I swear this is true
And I owe it all to you
I had the time of my life
And I never felt this way before
And I swear this is true
And I owe it all to you
Oh, I had the time of my life
And I never felt this way before And I swear this is true
And I owe it all to you
Dirty bit
