    I'd really like to have a DVD of our ceremony, one, for us to have a copy but second, to have one playing at our AHR

    The Dreams Punta Cana DVD is $350

    The Photo souvenior DVD is $390 + $60 shipping and it takes at least three weeks, which will be to late for us and you pay the day fee

    Lastly, do you thikn I should consider buying a camcorder and asking a guest to videotape for us? They make some nice ones that are shake/blur resistant and have pretty good optical zoom

    I don't know what to do, I'd really like the DVD but I don't think a 30 min or less video is worth almost $400 bucks but then again can I trust someone who doesnt' have a lot of expperience to get a decent video

    Thoughts?

      Personally, I plan on asking one of my guests to use a camcorder and record it for us. I just can't justify the expense of having the resort do it.

      I have seen dvd's of friends weddings where a 'novice' guest did it for them and they came out very nice. They don't have all the 'bells and whistles' of a professional; but in the end, do you really need them if you have a professional photographer taking amazing photos?

        Very true! Do you already own a camcorder or are you going to purchase one? and if so what type did you get?

          If you can't find one to borrow or plan to buy one for yourself, I would consider "borrowing/renting" from a store. What I mean by this is that a few big electronic stores (eg.bestbuy) have camcorders that people returned. These are sold as open items and can be returned in 14 days without a restocking fee.

          Not really the honest way to do things but can be useful in tough situations.

            Regarding the dvd provided by the resort, how's the quality? I'm curiuos to what you get for that price.
