@Himmstress:  To be honest the videographer is no less intrusive or noticeable than the photographer. (Well a good and talented one that is) You wont even notice either. Its basically just pictures in motion. 😛 You can elect not to have your voices in it or have it (ie. in your highlights video)

Someone once said to me if you could see your grandparents wedding pictures or wedding video, what would you choose? 

I can see why it would be important to you – maybe just find out more about his fears or what he thinks will happen if a videographer is there. it could just be a perception he has about it that isnt true at all.

@HappinessIsInDaisies:  That question’s not very helpful. If I had to choose, I’d pick the photos.

Our photographer had an option to add videography (had a second shooter), and looking back, it’s something I wish we had added. DH had his Go Pro set up in a corner of the dance floor, so we were able to get some of the reception highlights. Having professional quality would have been a LOT better.

But if your Fiance really is set against it, maybe some sort of middle ground- Go Pro, a friend with a Flip camera, etc.

I am on your FI’s team.  I think if he hasn’t had many opinions on the wedding, you could compromise one time.

I would have hated a videographer and from friends it seems that all that happened with theit’s is they uploaded a romantic montage onto social media and then never looked at it again. 

if your Fiance thinks he’ll be awkward (like me), then he’ll not relax and it will show. I’d listen to him.

He said no so no. I don’t see what you need advice about.
