    @MissParrot:  I booked a company that ended up going bankrupt (luckily a Bee told me about it and I was able to file a dispute with AMEX and got my money back) but it was too late to book another one and couldn’t really justify spending the money at that point.  I REALLY regret not figuring something out (even hiring some teenager to do it.lol)  I ended up bringing my home video camera to the venue and the coordinator was awesome enough to con the DJ into setting it up on his table and he got the ceremony (minus the bridal party walking, he didn’t start it until after-but I can’t complain, it wasn’t his job!) and then I was going to take the video camera and hand it off to anyone to tape the speeches, cake cutting etc. and totally forgot about it.  Luckily my step-brother’s wife taped our first dance with her iPhone but that’s it.  Pretty sad 🙁 

    I also cringe when I see myself on video but this is different.  If you can find anyone to just tape a basic video, it’s better than nothing!

    @MissParrot:  I did not have a videographer and could have afforded it. I opted not to have one because we had 40 kids invited to the ceremony. I knew I would remember it is as a perfect day and really didn’t want to hear/remember the reality of the kids being removed and fussing. I don’t regret it for a minute.
