My FI and I are about 95% sure we’re going with Wedit for our wedding. We plan to send in the deposit this month but I wanted to reach out and see if anyone has any experience with the company/service. We love the idea and are super excited about it, I just want to be thorough. 🙂

I’ve never used a service like this. However, I’d be hesitant to pay for something like this because you are the mercy of whatever your guests capture on video. I’ve recently started taking videos on my iphone and dslr just for fun (really just two recent vacations). IMHO, the hardest part is actually capturing the right footage to tell a story. It is hard to remember to take the video. I find that editing is the easy part (which is essentially what you are paying for). If you are a somewhat creative person, I think you can do editing yourself (for the videos I made I used an iphone app for one and windows live movie maker that came with my laptop, and both were easy to use).
Also, is all you get a 3 minute video? Or do you get more than that?

@babymakes3: We actually get the footage from all five cameras, unedited, in addition to the edited three minute video that is composed from all five cameras. I totally understand and appreciate your hesitance, but it’s one of the reasons why we opted to go with them originally. We want the different viewpoints; one camera is going to a bridesmaid, one to a groomsmen, one to a best friends’ sister who is instructed to focus on my FI as he sees me for the first time, one is to a mutual friend who will be able to capture the inevitable silliness and one to a family friend who works at a TV station and went to school for production. 🙂

I really like this idea and concept! I’m hiring a videographer for the actual wedding. But for the weekend events aurrounding the wedding, I’m seriously thinking about using this service. I like that you get the raw footage and with the final product from the videographer, it’ll help us remember the entire weekend.

We booked them, but haven’t used them yet. For the price ($350), we figure that it has to be worth it. Out of five cameras, there has to be enough decent footage for a short video and that’s all we’ll ever show anyone anyways.

@strawberrysorbet: I’m a little confused. For how long do you get the camera? One day? Two days? When do you have to return it?
I don’t think I’d use it for the wedding itself, but it would definitely be great for the rehearsal dinner and other wedding weekend event.

I really liked this idea and I’m excited to see if anyone has used it and liked it. The idea sounds amazing to me, especially since videography is really low on my list of priorities, this seems like a budget-friendly option.
