lena_k_29:   I did not get a video, but I did look into it a little bit and decided I just didn’t want to add on costs.  Now days videos are so much more artistic and stunning cinematagraphy.  It might be kind of over the top, but I think your wedding day is OK!  I think it’s just a personal thing. Photos were enough for me though.

I have seen a few elopement videos out there.  This couple got married a couple months before us (in winter, ours was in summer), so that’s how I know about this one.  Sure helps if it’s a pretty area to film!

If you google, you’ll see other videos for elopements.  Most of the time it’s the area, anything they are doing earlier in the day, etc.

lena_k_29:  I think a video is a great way to share the day with family that missed it. Im sure they would love to see it, and i do not think it makes you full of yourself!

This is one of my favorite elopement videos. They made a wedding music video and surprised their friends and family! http://vimeo.com/28170549

No, it doesn’t mean you’re full of yourself at all.

Wedding videos aren’t about or for guests; they are to document the wedding. You’re having a wedding, so you can have videography if you want to. It’s not over the top at all; it’s a standard part of the whole process, really. 

If you don’t want to pay a bunch of money for a video, you can rent or borrow a camera, if you don’t already have one, and set it up in a good place. Wedding videos done this way are actually very nice, in my opinion. I actually think they tend to look better and capture the wedding in a much more satisfying way.

I think that it is a wonderful idea. This is especially true for the people who were not there, but would love to see it!!! I am having an intimate 50 people wedding, and I would like a videographer.
