Hi! under two weeks until our wedding and I’m frantically trying to think of things that we have forgotten to even consider! One thing a number of people have said is video the ceromony? I don’t really know if this is necessary, would we actually watch it again? I have paid for a very good photographer so wouldn’t be hiring a professional videographer if we were to video it would just have to be someone at the ceromony videoing it for us. I’m not sure wether to do so or not! Will I regret not videoing it? Thoughts or experiences much appreciated!

I have come across accounts of brides and grooms who regret not having video of their wedding. Oftentimes, they think they’ll never watch a video if they have it. Lo and behold, the wedding day comes and goes, they think of a bunch of moments they didn’t know were going to happen, and they wish they had hired a videographer.
If you don’t want a professional videographer, you can rent a camera, set it up in a good spot, and record the ceremony and reception that way. It should work just fine and it won’t cost an arm and a leg.
If you still don’t want a video to be taken, I highly suggest recording the ceremony and any speeches from the reception. Audio recordings are a great way to memorialize one’s wedding day.
There may come a time when you wish you had a wedding video, so…

@Gilam746: I know some people who love to watch their wedding video, and others who let them collect dust. You know yourself best. I’m planning to rent a bunch of video cameras (in my area, a weekend rental for a cheap camera is under 50) and give them to different people and set them up on tripods for the ceremony.
