- Wedding: April 2012
So I’m stuck on this decision. Throughout the wedding planning process, I stated that I did not want a videographer because it was just something that didn’t fit into my budget and I really am not going to sit there and watch videos of our day over and over again. However, in the last few weeks, I attended my bridal shower and realized I don’t remember much about the night except for the fact that it was a great time. Also, my grandmother is very sick and it would be great to have memories of her also in video and pictures. The main part that’s still a problem for me is cost. Companies that I call just seem unwilling to do just the ceremony and quote astronimical rates for ceremony and reception. Also, I can’t get a hold of the one person who does own a video camera and I don’t want an important family member being stuck with shooting video during the ceremony (we are only having 70 guests). Do you have any suggestions? Is it worth getting a videographer? Also, is there anything to say to these companies to convince them to only shoot a ceremony? Thanks for your help!
