    Have you thought of using a company like Wedit? It cuts down on cost big time and would still allow you to have a wedding video. We had a videographer and I would have really regret it if we hadn’t. The day is such a blur and it’s so much fun to be able to look back on it with a video!

    We’re having a small wedding (17 people), so I’m hiring a videographer for 4 hours…1 hour for getting ready/1st look, 1 hour for the ceremony and family pictures, and 2 hours for the reception (1st dances, toasts, cake cutting, bouquet/garter toss).

    I don’t know yet.  I sort of want one, mainly because my Grandmother is very old and probably not able to attend the wedding (she lives 400miles away) and so I could then go and visit her with the video and dress and have a mini-wedding celebration with her afterwards.


    However they are really expensive and I’m already worried about how much the wedding is costing.  Most people seem to think it’s a good idea, but I really can’t decide.


    We have a photographer, but I’ve been told my many friends who got married recently that they day goes really quickly and in the video you see stuff you may have missed.


    So yes, very undecided, this is the last big decision we have to make.

    I really really want to….but its $590 for an 8 minute video at Sandals Money Mouth.  I think if i have any money left over, we will definately do it.  My Fiance thinks its ridiculous pricewise.  I feel like since we are writing our own vows, etc – i prob wont remember anything, so it would be nice to have something to see!

    I’m planning on it. It’s not as expensive as I expected and I’m very impressed the lady’s sample work. This is actually a more compelling cost than photography to me. I want the most barebones photog package I can find. Just so that there can be halfway decent pics of the big stuff. But I’m VERY excited at being able to relive my wedding as a multisensory experience.

    My dad and his friend often edit videos for our social events and lay them down with music or original sound and do longer 1 hour or short teaser versions. Strange thing is it took me talking to cinematographers who cost thousands before asking my dad and his friend to supervise video came to mind.
