    We had one and it was SO worth it. We were looking forward to getting the video more than the photos! It’s really special to be able to hear our ceremony again, and hear the toasts, since we were so overwhelmed on the day of, we didn’t really remember what people had said. Definitely worth it!

    I don’t like watching myself in motion.

    No we’re not. We have a really awesome photographer and I think he’ll catch everything. If it wasn’t SO much extra money, I’d consider it, but it’s just too expensive. I can see myself looking at the photos from our wedding day over and over again throughout the years… I doubt we’d watch the video more than two or three times.

    We’ve been going back and forth about this from the beginning! I would love to be able to see it again, but I feel like we won’t watch it very much in the future so it may not be worth the cost for us. Our photographer seems great, so I’m hoping he can just capture all of the best moments for us. While it would be nice to watch the ceremony, I’m not sure if we can spare $1000 in our budget for it. Right now we’re leaning toward no.

    Nope we are not, I don’t see the point when we are already spending a lot of money on a photographer and really how many times are you going to actually watch the video?  I just can’t justify spending more money than we already are

    I asked for a flipcam for my birthday and had a friend video the ceremony for us that way. I wasn’t really interested in having an artsy video of our wedding, but I wanted something to document the occasion and to show to future children or whatever. I’m glad we went this route 🙂

    We had one and It’s sooo worth it! They day was such a blur so it was nice to be able to sit back and relive it. Like Hilsy85 said, it was nice to hear the speeches again and I loved seeing everything I was unable to see the day of. Ex: The groom waiting for me at the church, my flower girl walking down the aisle, the bridal party entrance… I could go on for hours. We plan on watching the video on every anniversary so we can relive it. Good luck with planning everyone!

    I really did not want one at all. I splurged on the photographer and I was fine with that. My in-laws were insistant and I didn’t want to cause a fight so I found an inexpensive one in my area. OMG! I am SO SO SO happy we did it. There are no words how amazing it is and how special it is. Even if you just get the raw footage you will treasure it. http://www.youtube.com/user/martinsaccentwedding#p/u/4/gyIRjYxhepo

    I have asked myself this what seems like a thousand times since begnning my wedding planning in January.  I have decided to forego the expense, and put a little extra into the photography budget so that we can go with a more artsy photo-journalistic photographer.  I have asked the husband of a close friend to video tape our ceremony using our personal camcorder (I’m glad to hear this worked for you corgitales!!)  Really I just want to be able to hear and watch our ceremony, and since we are getting married in a very small church, I think a professional videographer make not give us the value for the dollar spent.
