Many threads have been started but I haven’t found anyone who has actually used Wedit. Have you? Are you thinking about it? What are the pros and cons?
I’ve read in more than one thread today about people forgoing videography (us included) but maybe this Wedit thing is a happy medium.

posting bc I also want to know about this! I also found this vendor that has an app your guests can download and film with their iphones! For $99 I think it’s worth a shot, right?

I honestly think both are awesome alternatives…really my only reservation is the ceremony. I would be worried we’d get a shaky mess of a ceremony and that’s really the one part I’d want to be still and not muffled…yah know!

I used Storymix Media for my wedding and really liked them. You can read about my experience with them here, http://sayingidoinnewyork.blogspot.com/2011/07/my-flip-wedding-video-preview.html. I’ve also been to two weddings now who have used them, and have really enjoyed taking video from my persepective for my friends. I think doing a video like this for your wedding is absolutely a happy medium between forking out at on of money for videography and not having video at all.

@LwoodsNY: That is really fun! i like that you get to pick which clips are used too.
We are definetly doing a DIY video thing, just not sure which one yet.
I’d love to hear from more Bees with Wedit experiences too!

We used Wedit.
And here’s the low down on our experience. The cameras arrived LATE the night before the wedding. UPS delivered them while we were all at the rehearsal dinner and proceeded to take out part of our fence (I know not Wedit’s fault!). The cameras came in a neat metal briefcase with an instruction tag attached to each. A prepaid return sticker was also included.
Two of the five cameras worked intermitently and were basically useless. My MOH’s husband has a flipcam of his own and is very “techy” and even he couldn’t figure out what was up with them. They just shut off when you hit record. The batteries were fully charged.
We returned the videos right after our wedding and received an automated email stating our videos would be online in approximately two weeks. A month later, after multiple emails and a phone calls, they finally showed up online. We weren’t even at the top of the queue- they moved us up in response to my call. Expect a longer turn around time.
The video quality isn’t what I expected. I thought it would be crisper based on the demo videos they have online. I inquired and was told that it was grainy because of the sunlight? It’s an additional $249 to have your video clips edited into a 2 minute preview trailer, $399 to have a 40-60 minute video made with a 2 minute trailer.
Don’t expect quick responses to your questions, be prepared to pursue them. I was so excited about their service but I guess you get what you pay for.
Am I happy I have the video? YES.
Do I wish the quality of service was better? Most definitely YES!
I wouldn’t warn people away from them completely but do want to give everyone a heads up that it’s highly likely their video won’t turn out like the demo videos in terms of video quality and that their customer service could stand some polish.
