Videographer?

Recommended Posts

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?

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.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
