Can someone tell me what they put on the end of thier wedding DVD? Does anyone type something to end the Wedding? I don't mean the Video guys name and company. I was using "Not the end, but the beggining" or "To be continued" You guys have any more ideas?

I do a credits roll of the wedding party, followed by a list of all participating vendors, decorators, photographers and, of course, me.

Everything is approved by my clients beforehand. I give them a form that allows them to list everyone and everything that they want listed as part of the contract. That way I can't include unaproved credits.

The credits roll is a good place for me to include shots that, for whatever reason, didn't fit into the body of the video. If there are no shots, then the credits are over black. Most of the time I have a lot of useful images that could not be made to fit elsewhere. Saving those images for the credits roll allows me to do one last bit of creative work to tie up any loose ends. I like for my closing sequence to be as strong as any other sequence as that gives a balance to the entire project and, with the right background audio, bring the entire story line to a logical and sensible end.

I use a credits video if it is included in their package or use guests dancing footage and fade out from that straight to the main menu. I avoid text whenever possible, to keep the clean simple look.

Credits taken right off their program guide. I've even seen somebody merely scan the guide and use that.
