    nowthisistaken :  so you mentioned that your Future Mother-In-Law is blind….I have vision issues too! I went blind a month before the wedding. Thankfully my vision returned but I was extremely photosensitive. We found a vendor on thumbtack. I’ll admit, he never used my correct name…not once, but we thought that was funny. He was cheap and we got our video. There was no bright light after I explained the situation and I could totally deal with the videographer since he only had a handheld unit. 

    For the Future Mother-In-Law, I’d recommend getting Fiance to sit down with her and ask her what she needs to be comfortable. Ask her to make a list. Most of the stuff I needed was minor like a canopy, parasol and sunglasses. (I was wearing sunglasses inside I was so photosensitive!). I’m mentioning this because I needed to talk to the photographer about low or no flash at night too. A good vendor can work around this…mine sure did. 

    The highlight reel is awesome and I’m glad I have it. I’d recommend doing it. For us, we would have really regretted it since we didn’t remember much of the day since it was a blur. Also, it was very cheap compared to other wedding costs. I feel like it was money I spent on me and DH. In 20 years, it’ll be one of the only things along with our photos we will have.
