aubrizzle34:  What a good idea, I never thought about collecting videos from my guests to send somewhere to be edited into a movie.  The only issue I can see with asking guests to record the ceremony is that they might get in the way of your photographers…

We didn’t want to hire a videographer, but we have a friend who does work with videos, and we’ve asked him to set up a camera off to the side of the ceremony that will be out of our photographers way to get a video of the ceremony.  It won’t be perfect, but I figure it’s better then not having one, and the photos are much more important to me!!

You can definitely ask guests to send you video footage that they filmed at the wedding (everyone has smartphones and fancy cameras that shoot high-quality footage these days), and then ask someone who is good at it to edit it all together. 🙂 Crowdsource it!
