    I'm on the fence about doing a wedding video. Cain's fine with it if that's what I decide, but I can't make up my mind one way or the other.

    Are you doing a video? If yes or no, please explain way you choose yes or no.

      Yes. I hired BVP for 4 hours to shoot raw footage for me.

      A video was a non-negotiable item for the wedding, imo. Jeff didn't think we needed it. I know that I will be very caught up in the moment and will want to relive it a couple times. I also didn't want to stick any of my family or guests with the job of videographer.

        I also hired BVP. I just didn't want to regret not having a video. A few of my friends said that they wished that they did. I figured it is a good idea, since I'm afraid the whole thing will be a blur to me.

            Hmm, The reason I'm on the fence is because I'm having a hand full of guests (3 to be exact) and since Juan does such an awesome job I could do a little CD with his pics set to music. And it wouldn't cost me anything. Do people really want to listen to our vows and such? I mean I can see if our wedding was larger and people say things to the bride and groom but that wouldn't really happen for us.

            Tammy I am doing that-I am also going to possible record the audio of the ceremony (using a digital voice recorder). I don't really ever see myself sitting down and watching a video but I always look at pics-I look at my b-pics daily (well the only ones I have so far on here)

              I agree that Juan does a great job and your pictures will be phenomenal. His slideshow would be wonderful as well. However, don't worry about if "people" want to listen to your vows- do YOU? Most of what I have done concerning the wedding is for no one else but myself. If you don't care about watching a wedding video in the future, then don't bother!
              Jeff's mom and sister are so excited that we're doing a video, this way his sister can see it. I honestly couldn't care less what they think- I want a video so I can watch it again- I know it's kinda a selfish line of thinking, but it's MY wedding so I'll do what I want! I would still have a video even if it was just Jeff & I getting married by ourselves, but that's just me...

              IMO, if you are saying personal vows, you will probably want it. I know that if I did personal vows I'd be crying so hard I'd have no idea what he said to me!!! On another note, I too think that your family might like to see your wedding since they couldn't be there. I would assume that you are having a very short ceremony, so it's not like it'll be painful for people to watch.
              Hmm... I don't think I helped. How about you flip a coin?
