  • Yup, my drunk uncle did it. I loved the video. He was the best. It was amateur video. There is a scene where my little 3 year old brother is running to the bathroom in his tux with his pants half way down saying I have to pee, so my uncle recorded it all and the next scene is a stream of urine going into the toilet (my uncle peeing). I had to laugh. I just wish that my mom would put it on a dvd for me. If you can't afford it ask a family member if they wouldnt mind doing it. My mom told my uncle we didnt have one and he volunteered. It was great!

  • Our photographer offered that service but we declined. I dont wish we had it. We have over 1000 photos from before, during, after and of the reception.

  • For my firs marriage I had one. Yes, it was SO worth it. You wil never have another First wedding with the white dress and all the family and friends, so I think it's worth it.

  • nope and I don't regret it. My brother in law made a video but I never watch it. sometimes I think the photographers and videographers interfere with the natural flow of the ceremony and the party. JMO
    I do love my wedding album though.

  • Yes we had one. It is soooo worth it. Pictures are great too, but to WATCH the wedding over again is even better. I get ot relive that day every time I put in that DVD. They did a fabulous job with the DVD too.

  • nope I didn't see a point in one when I could ask someone else to video tape for me. My Uncle Video taped the whole wedding and then a little of the reception. He didn't stay for the reception, but he went for a few to video some of it. Then my dh's dad took pictures at our wedding and our reception

  • I didn't and I am fine with it, it's kinda a waste of money since you will never watch it. If you really want your vows on take do as I did, as a friend to discreetly video take with their camera from their seat, just make sure that person has a good seat with no tall people in front

  • Yes we did. I felt it worth it for I didn't want to rely on a guest to capture the important moments of my special day. I have to say, the thing I feel is the best part of having had a video done...being able to show my daughter (who we had 2 years later) mommy and daddy's wedding day. SHE LOVES watching it.
