    @LoveMyMoriLee:  That is indeed the question.  I am torn with the same dilemma.  Aaarg…

    The Love of my life recommended getting a student to do with.  But, I dont know if I trust that route.  The saga continues.

    I think I would watch the video once, and I doubt FI would watch it at all unless I forced him to. Thus, no video for us. We did splurge on a great photo package because that’s what we would appreciate over time.

    This is such a personal choice and I’m sure that you will get answers across the board. My opinion is to say YES to the video, but shop around for a lower price. We snagged ours for $1500 after months and months of hunting for someone within our budget. I love my video. I watch it constantly, but I am the type of person who will watch home movies all day on a rainy day so I knew that video would be important to me. I personally appreciate and love moments that can’t be caught by a photograph. And just because I love sharing it, here’s my highlight video:

    Video! You won’t regret it. I’ve watched mine about 20 times since I received it. Even if you only watch it once a year, pictures just can’t capture the same feeling. Also, the day goes by so fast, it’s nice to actually see the ceremony and speeches, since I can barely remember them. It’s totally worth it!

    My FMIL said it was the one regret she had on her wedding day is not recording it. She said that the ceremony can go by in a whirl of emotion that you probably wont remember it. Thats defiintely going to be true for me! However , we’re not going to get it professionally done, it’s like $5000 in NZ. Someone is just going to record the ceremony and speeches for us on normal camera. Cheap I know and the white balance will be all off! (haha i have no idea what im talking about) But even if its crap I want to watch it every now and then

    I wish we had hired a professional videographer.  We had a tripod set up with our own camera and my FIL recorded the whole thing on his, but I’m not thrilled with what we ended up with.

    We bought a Flip camera ($100) and had the fiance of my MOH sit close to the front. That way we have a video recording of the ceremony, even though it’s definitely not fancy. I can hear myself, DH, the officiant and the readers and see everyone clearly, so it’s good enough for me! There’s definitely a compromise between $2,500 on video and no video at all!
