nice if you can afford it, but definitely not necessary. i would try to negotiate.

It’s not something that I would pay extra for.

I would do it. I love our rehearsal dinner and yes, people had cameras but there arent that many great photos. I would have loved to have photos of all of the details of our Rehearsal Dinner and all of the people there. A friend of ours got married last March and had her photogs for the Rehearsal Dinner and she is so happy she did. WHy not take the opportunity to have even more pro pics from your wedding weekend? Even if you designate a friend to take pictures it wont be the same! If you can afford it – do it!

I definitely don’t think its necessary or worth the money. You will already have a ton of photos what would you do with those? Get family to take pics.

I think you should go for it if you have the money. I think it’d be great to have pictures of everyone that are a bit less formal than the wedding day photos.

If you can afford it, go for it! I didn’t have a pro for our Rehearsal Dinner. But I did have a friend there with a fancy camera. And he got some beautiful pics. They look really nice in the wedding album.

@TinyTina: ah if it is between Rehearsal Dinner photos and a videographer I say go for the videographer!

I’m thinking about having them at the Rehearsal Dinner and then having them leave earlier in the evening.  We aren’t doing a “grand exit”, and I’m just not sure the late night picutres of people at reception will be as meaningful as pictures of the Rehearsal Dinner….(they offered to cut an hour off of our wedding coverage to cover the RD)

How long will the dinner be? Is it going to be a big event or what? I’m not going to bother with it–my sister in law will probably snap 1,000 photos in two hours. I’ll use those 🙂 But it would be cool for a professional. Do your photographer have examples of the pictures he/she takes for rehearsal dinners? Make sure you look at them to see if it’s something you want.

@TinyTina: I don’t know. I think videography can be beautiful. But If *I* had to pick…I would probably have gone for the photog @ the Rehearsal Dinner. (But that’s probably because I hate myself on video.)

Anyway, I have a couple of comparison pics.  Kind of the same picture…from a point a shoot and from the fancy camera that my friend brought. SO GLAD HE WAS THERE.

I think if you can have an ok video with pro pics from your Rehearsal Dinner thats how I would do it instead of having amazing video

My parents decided to spend a little extra to have a photographer at the Rehearsal and the Rehearsal Dinner. Reason being that my sister, BIL, and 2 nephews live in Japan and this was the first time (ever!) for my family to meet my BIL. We wanted as many pictures of all of us together as we could get! It was really nice to get some nice, more casual pictures of everyone.
