I honestly don’t think the videos are really worth it.  Everyone I’ve ever heard that’s gotten one says they watch it once or twice, and then put it away to never see it again.  So the difference between regular and HD shouldn’t make too much of a difference.  But with friends/family filming it, you also have to be aware that you aren’t going to have anything close to a professional quality, and you’ll hear talking in the background, jumpy images, and no real theme of the film.  If you are really, really interested in a video of your wedding, you may want to consider springing for a videographer, or accept that the quality will likely be subpar.

I had a friend to mine for me, but I just wanted some sort of record of us saying our vows, even if it was jumpy at times. If that’s what you’re looking for, then HD won’t matter at all. 

If you do want a really nice video, then the friend route might not be the best for you, but if you just want something from the day, the difference between HD/not-HD won’t be a big deal at all!

I don’t think HD will matter much… I don’t even have a HD TV or converter so I wouldn’t be able to enjoy it. If you want to just capture your day, a regular video will be fine. In 5 years from now, HD will probably be obsolete anyway so it won’t even matter!

Videography is one of the things that are very important to me. We are splurging big time on our videographer (while still getting a “great” deal). Having the video in HD was important to my techy Fiance. His main point was that you can never upgrade to HD… it’s one of those things that’s completely lost if it’s not filmed like that to begin with. This doesn’t mean much to me although I do appreciate the nicer quality HD offers. What do I know? I still have a tube TV 😉
