Really trying to have a budget friendly, small, family only wedding (like 20 people, 5 of which are kids under 5)
Is it worth it to hire a videographer? Or my other options would be to have 2 cameras on tripods to record the ceremony, and possibly the same setup for the reception, with the option for guest to record video?
How often have you watched your wedding videos?
Has anyone done their own DIY videos? Was thinking down the line could just have someone edit down the clips?
Also, I’ve always wanted a live band but obviously it’s more expensive than a DJ, should this be the thing that I splurge on? Or will it really matter down the line?
Thanks in advance!

We had a tripod set up to record the wedding and speeches. We still haven’t watched it after over a year! It’s nice to know it’s there, but for us it wasn’t worth splurging.
We did splurge on a live band. It was wonderful and worth every penny but we had a large wedding with a lot of dancing.

I would do the cheaper option for the video. You may not watch your wedding video initially, but many years later you will appreciate having it. It’s nice to see your family, some of whom may have been very young at the time the video was taken, and others who have passed on.
I would not spend money on a live band for such a small wedding.

I love watching my mum’s wedding video from the 80s…

I didn’t do a wedding video and haven’t missed it so far. I love my pictures and feel like they are enough.
