This is really the one thing that I have not even thought about. Seriously, do I need a video of the wedding? And do you think I would even still be able to find a videographer? How long do you hire them for?

I would suggest talking with Marcie (BVP is her name on the boards). She is so affordable and you will be glad you got a video (without breaking the bank). The day flies by so quickly so being able to see things you missed on the video is priceless!

we decided this is one thing we could live without in a way. We are going to set up a few cameras on tripods around the church and then record our vows using a digital voice recorder. I am not planning to try to match them up, but we are both pretty good with computers so we will make our own slideshow and maybe use our vows as part of the voice over? not entirely sure yet, but professional videography was not in our budget.

if you have some extra $$, i say go for it...if not, do not sweat it...we love watching our video because the day goes by so quickly that it is easy to miss all the great little details that are happening.

Thanks girls, that is what I was thinking, that it will go by so quickly I know I will miss something.

After Janety's great review of Marcie we have hired her for our June wedding. I think the $750 price is very reasonable for an edited video plus all the raw footage. If you can afford another grand than I think it's worthwhile! When it'sd all said and done, the money spent, the dress worn, the food eaten you're going to walk away with an amazing husband, some gorgeous photos and perhaps a video of your special day...

We aren't hiring a videographer b/c we don't have the budget for it. But a lot of girls definitely recommend it! We'll probably get someone to use a camcorder for the ceremony, then we have Juan to take a ton of pictures of everything else!

I had three personal camera's (my sisters, mine and my sister-in-laws) set up. One from each side and one in the middle of the aisle. My mother-in-law is a teacher at the local high school and actually teaches the video-graphy class! We were so lucky! She took the three tapes and cut them together, put some photos in where the video wasn't good, and added some music. It is so awesome to look back at the day!

 

She also made one version that is extremely cut to the important parts only - I think it 10 minutes long or less. This is the version that we showed at the AHR and show if anyone wants to see it. Nobody really wants to see the 30 minute version other than us.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
