How Does This Contest Work? You can enter the contest every single day between April 6th and April 28th. You'll find the entry form on the blog post for the prize being unveiled that day. Scroll down to the bottom of this post the enter! You can always find today's prize featured on the SmartBrideBoutique.com CONTESTS page.

Leading Up To Your Big Day


Capture the precious 'behind the scenes' moments like trying on and finding your wedding dress, adventures from your bachelorette, wedding showers and finally getting ready for and celebrating the big day.


The built-in image stabilization and 720p/60 fps combination lets brides and grooms to-be, dedicated best men, bridesmaids and even wedding guests capture the moments as they happen (and lets you relive those happy memories in stunning quality for years to come).




On Your Wedding Day
Small enough to slide into your purse or jacket pocket, yet mighty enough to capture up to two hours of HD video, the Flip Video is the perfect accessory to your wedding day......and it’s easy to use! Just power on, press record and start filming – it's really that simple.




Editing and Sharing Your Videos


Once you've captured your memories, connect the flip-out USB arm directly into your PC or Mac to launch the pre-loaded FlipShare editing software. Plus, FlipShare lets you organize and edit your videos, capture photos, send video greeting cards and create custom movies.


Have friends and family out of town that can't make the big day? You can still let them in on your experience. FlipShare provides a direct upload to e-mail, facebook, Twitter and YouTube. And the Flip Video MinoHD's newest feature, Image Stabilization, means your videos will be steady even if you're not.


Want to Do It Yourself?


Not everyone can afford the expense of a videographer, let alone a whole team to capture everything behind the scenes in addition to focusing on the bride and groom.


That's where having a couple of Flip Videos can come in really handy! We love the idea of purchasing 2-3 Flip video cameras and giving them away to 3 lucky guests at the end of the night instead of buying favors for everyone. Or, you can easily rent Flip Video cameras from a company like StoryMix Media.


Wedding Deal Story Mix Media


They provide camera rentals and editing services to help turn your video footage into a professional wedding video. If you have hired a videographer, you may want to get them the Flip video footage to include along with their own.


Tips to DIY Wedding Videos:


  1. Choose 2 or 3 people to be in charge of the cameras so there is someone responsible for the big moments, like capturing the ceremony, your entrance, first dance, cake cutting and that kind of thing.

  2. Outline a list of activities you'd like captured to ensure nothing is missed!

  3. Determine any special guests you'd like footage of in advance, like your grandparents etc.

  4. Have one camera placed with your guest book in case guests would also like to leave you a video message.

  5. Invest in a mini tripod to use for scenes where movement is minimal, like the ceremony.

  6. Bring extra batteries.

  7. Have a laptop on hand to download footage if the units get full throughout the course of the day.
