    We keep going back and forth on this.  I have had requests from family that can't come to have it videotaped.  But I really hate to spend the extra money.  I was just curious if anyone had decided against doing a video and regret it later.

      We didn't hire a videographer and I do regret it.  My Uncle taped the ceremony with his camera, but you can't really hear anything because of the waves crashing on the rocks and he had to video it in 4 shorter videos b/c of his camera.  We wished we had a video because the whole ceremony was such a blur for my husband and I.  Between excitement and nerves, the whole day just flew by.  It would have been nice to have a good video to remember it all, especially our vows!!  On the flip side, I would not have paid thousands of dollars for this, maybe just bought a really good quality camera and tested it out before going to know sound would be picked up.  I don't know if I am helping you at all here!!

          Mine comes in our package and I think pictures should speak for themselves. But some are relatively affordable. Hire a photographer that may do both. Gluck!

              I'm with you on this.  I am saving $1k by not having a videographer.  I have had many friends that have a video and they wait a year after the wedding to get it, and only watch it once or twice.  I don't know if I'll regret it later, but I am much more at ease saving the money now!!  I'm going to have a family member video tape a few important parts, like our vows, speeches, etc.

                I'm not hiring a videographer either to try and save a bit of money. Instead, I'm planning on making a slideshow of our photos with some music in the background. It's not exactly a video, but it'll be something to watch when we want to reminisce!

                  I was unsure of this.. but I decided that we'll hire a videographer.  My best friend hired a videographer and she loves her video.. her sister even did the whole thing of having someone video tape the wedding.. and then afterward she had to hire someone to put it together to make it more of a wedding video.

                    I decided not to have a video either. I hate the thought of someone following me around all day (bad enough the photographer).

                      I am debating about this also, but I think I am going to get a video. We are getting married at Beaches T&C so we have to use their videographer. We are not having anyone (except our daughter) so we want something to show interested family members. It seems expensive, but I'm thinking that the actual ceremony and such will fly by and be such a whirlwind that I'll not remember anything! I think later I would regret it if I didn't get one...
