    I HONESTLY THINK IT IS WORTH THE MONEY IF ITS WITHIN BUDGET.... ME PERSONALLY I CANT AFFORD IT SOOOO ILL HAVE TO GET SOMEONE WITH THE IPAD AND TELL THEM TO RECORD IT... BUT FOR MY FIRST WEDDING I DID HAVE THE VIDEO AND WHAT NOT (IT GOT BROKEN AND DESTROYED IN THE SEPARATION PROCESS HOWEVER,.....) IT WAS WORTH THE MONEY TO BE ABLE TO GO BACK AND LOOK AT IT..

    Other than asking a family member or friend to video the ceremony, has anyone located a videographer who is "cheap" but will do a good job in Greensboro, NC?

    Depends. whats your photographer situation looking like. because i got my cousin to do photography, we "splurged" on video. To be honest, i'm glad i have the video but would have rather put that money towards really nice photo's (because ours kind of suck). When we got the video i probly watched it about 5 times for 2-3 weeks. Now i watch it once every 2-3 months. If I could do it all over again, i would almost look for a service that can "edit" video. have someone take video of you and hubby while getting dressed, taking pics, vows, reception, details of wedding, etc... and see if you can find someone to cut, fade, and put music to it. or look for videography students. I definitely WOULD NOT cheap out on actual photography though to squeeze in video.

    yeah I echo everybody else vee.  I think it's a good idea within budget and personally, this is me as me, not as anybody else, if it weren't in budget i'd give up one of the other traditional weddingy things to have video, if it meant no flowers and no favors {shrugs} okay, because i won't remember that in 20 years but I'll always be able to look at the dvd.

    eta:  vee I just clicked.  girl I might be biased because of the market I live in but the prices aren't pretty good, they're awesome.   $3 grand for video and photography?  I'm moving.

    After reading everyone's posts, I have more assurance that I need to also get the videographer, even during this planning process, I enjoy watching real wedding videos that are not photo slideshows set to music.

    A lot of brides told me they regret not having a videographer so that is why I will have one, but I wasn't planning on hiring one initially.

    We have decided to invest in Videography. With a destination wedding our parents will not be able to attend, one because of illness and the other because of the fear of flying. So we are going to try to capture as much as possible on that day.

    We will have a videographer.  Just need to figure out who. LOL  Videography is a must for me.  I want all the memories I can get and I really want to see my day in motion.



    Love is the ultimate superpower.   
    It can make you weak and strong simultaneously.
