    We definitely want a videographer and are considering quotes. What are you asking your videographer to record??

    - obviously ceremony
    - dinner??
    - dancing!!!
    - toasts
    - personal messages from guests.

    Are you having your videographer stay until the very end? I got a quote that is not too expensive so I'm considering keeping him for the whole 5 hours but he for some reason suggested just 2 hours which would just include ceremony and dinner. From my experience, the dancing/toasts come later than 2 hours into the wedding. What do you ladies think

      I think I'm going to just get a short video with the getting ready pictures and ceremony. If you got a good quote for the whole reception, I say go for it!

        If the price is right for the entire night, like Oryx said.. go for it! Also, think about the photography coverage you're going to have. If the photographer can't capture a certain point in your wedding day, I'd make sure that the videographer will, and vice versa. You never know what you'll want to look back at in 2 or 10 years!

          I only got a video of the ceremony as it was all I could afford, but it is my fav thing! I love it.

          I do wish that I had the speaches on video as well.

            I definitely want the speeches on film. And the dancing! So I think I will get the whole night package. What's a few more hundred dollars when it's already thousands? :)
