    I voted yes, because that’s the one thing I wish I would have splurged on for our wedding.

    I too thought about not having one (because its sooooo expensive). But thinking about I think it would be something I would regret. Not that we’ll watch our wedding videos every week, but it would be nice to have it so every now and then we can look back and remember that day.. I think it’s worth it. However, that being said I’m trying to find a place that can do it under $1000 …

    @kguitarchic18:  I didn’t get a video. I just never thought about it. I still never think about it. I couldn’t imagine watching something like that more than once, so to me it was definitely NOT worth the money.

    I have watched my entire video several times (with Darling Husband and some of our family and a friend who wasn’t at the wedding but wanted to see it), and I’ve watched some of my favorite segments many more times.  I felt that my wedding day was over SOOOOO quickly, and I could not wait for my video to be completed so that I could see so many of the things I missed on the day of my wedding. Although it took an outrageous amount of time (nine months!) for our videographer to finish our video, it was a very comforting experience finally to have it in hand.

    Yes yes yes….I see so many people skip it but with the right videographer the videos that I have seen these days are amazing! So many people say they don’t watch them but that’s a memory you will have forever to watch with your kids and family!

    My fiancé and I have have been going back and forth about this. We have decided to go with Story Mix  and DIY our video with our guests help, instead of spending 2k on a video.You can use 1,3 or 5 flip cams starting at 200$  It is very affordable and will give us some extra money to spend on our honeymoon!

    The company edits the footage and makes it easy to put together in a video. We’re going to attach tags to each camera with a wish list of specific shots like first dance, cake cut, ceremony exit, toasts etc. The story mix blog gives tips for the best way to use them at your wedding!

    Wow, $1200 seems a bit expensive for Oregon, especially for a 50-person wedding.  I’m in Chicago and that’s about the going rate for a decent videographer.  (Granted, there are some $3k or $5k, but that’s the exception, not the norm.)

    Videography was the #1 thing I wanted for our wedding, and we’re paying $4,250 to make it happen.  This is a once-in-a-lifetime event.  The pictures are great, but memories will still fade.  Having a video will keep the memory alive in a way that pictures can’t.  And in the end, all you’ll have are memories.  Get the video.

    I have seen some awesome videos but for me personally I know we’d rarely watch it and that’s not how I want to spend our money.

    @kguitarchic18:  Just saw the link.  It’s a weird music choice, but a well made video at a reasonable price.  Just make sure you get an edit with sound that actually captures the wedding ceremony vows, toasts at the reception, etc.
