The video is a really cool thing to pass down to your children later on – that’s what I would choose… Then again, I’m not big on China and my dad’s a videographer, so my judgement is tainted! πŸ˜‰

This is hard because it’s a personal choice. Personally, I’d choose the video, because I could get the china whenever I want, but I could never go back and get a video of my wedding day.

However, not every cares about videos as much as I do, which is okay too. πŸ™‚

My parents rarely use their china (and I mean RARELY – in my 23 years, I can remember using the china MAYBE 3 or 4 times…), so I would pick the videographer myself.

@Gemstone: Oooh never being able to go back in time is a good argument too!

I would rather have the China because I can’t see us watching the video more than a couple of times. I bring my mom’s China out every time we have company, so we use it quite a bit.

As someone whose (totally amateur) wedding video was stolen during a home break in, I can say that even if you might not watch it that often, it’s a nice thing to know you have! Of course we weren’t going to watch it much – but I imagine it’s something my children would have liked to see, not only to laugh at what we look like but so I can say things like “that’s your great grandmother” or “yes that’s exactly how grandpa danced”.

I agree with others – you can totally buy china later. Darling Husband and I still have the same standard white dinner plates we’ve always had, and they do the job just fine. I’d rather have my wedding video back than have nicer plates πŸ™‚

videographer hands down. πŸ™‚

we’re having one and I’m SO happy we are because – while my pictures will be awesome – i want to be able to see how the entire thing that I planned went down! ya know?

and i agree with others…i have some china my mom gave me when she bought new – i’ve NEVER used it.

How generous of your FILs!  πŸ™‚ 

I would choose videography.  We didn’t even register for fine china.
