    Yes

    No

    Haven't decided yet

    It all depends on the money we have left after spending on the more important stuff

    Originally my Fiance and i had no intention of hiring a videographer. Long story short I’m a teacher and work with some odd 150 women, some of which have gotten married as of recent. Everyone gives me wedding planning advice (wanted or not lol) and the biggest regret any of them have is NOT having a videographer. The friends that did hire one said how happy they were because it captured so much they would never have seen. So Yes, we hired one and I think it’s one of the key aspects to the day! As long as there’s room in your budget, I’d say its a go, good luck!

    Definitely do your homework! They are ridiculously expensive. Mine was $1600 and I am not very pleased with how it came out.

    I really, really, really wanted to. There’s a couple here that does them for $1500 and they are always amazing. But, I just don’t think we’re going to be able to afford it. I’m kinda disappointed but I know our photographer is amazing, so we’ll have that at least.

    We did and I must say I felt like it was totally worth the splurge. We got a great deal on our photographer so we were able to get the most generous package our videographer offered. It ended up being 8% of our total budget. So worth every penny to be able to hear our ceremony, toasts, and see all the parts of the reception we missed.

    My videographer was the first thing I booked for our wedding. We have someone in our area who does the most amazing videos. We were lucky to find a good affordable photographer or else I would never be able to afford the videographer. Overall, I felt like the videographer was too much money and kinda an extra in the wedding industry but then I said I work hard and don’t splurge too often so I can treat myself to this.
