Video same day edit???

Anyone ever go to a wedding and they show an edited video set to music from the wedding day? Saw this at a wedding recently and kind of liked it. It was shown during dinner and lasted the length of one song. It was short and sweet, and it didn't take away from the dancing since we were eating dinner anyway. Thinking of doing this at mine. Any pros and cons to this?

    my videographer said they would need to hire another person to do this b/c of the time they need to edit the video. once we heard it would cost more money to do this, we decided not to do it. it is a really nice though.

    I've seen the same day picture slideshow at a wedding and I thought it was kind of ridiculous.  I don't need to see the ceremony twice on the same day.  And I hate anything extraneous that breaks up fun/drinking/conversation like that.

    I have to agree with uppereast. My cousin had this at his wedding. I felt like, we are already there to celebrate you, now we have to sit and watch an homage to you (of what we just saw set to slow music, no less?)? It was just weird to me... we had to stand or sit and all had fake smiles plastered to our faces.

    Agree with uppereast. We went to a wedding that did the picture slide show and it was just too AWish to me plus it was an unnecessary flashback to something that had happened an hour earlier.

    Yes, I have.  It was actually at my friend's wedding.  They did a same day edit for the video, and it was awesome :)  I'm sure she won't mind me sharing.  Here it is :)[url]http://vimeo.com/4719417[/url]

    acablitas - that's a really cute video. it's nice for some of the people who did not attend the ceremony to see the abbreviated version. Plus if it's played during dinner or downtime, it won't take away from the dancing.

    Even if it is during dinner or downtime, you are going to be interrupting people. They may be having a nice conversation. They may need to go to the bar for another drink. They may really have to pee. That's why I hate excessive toasts and things like photo montages and video recaps. At least with a growing up montage though, I get to see things I haven't seen before-- I'm not just reliving the last 2 hours of my life. If people want to see the ceremony, they should actually show up to the ceremony, or they should watch the video at a later date? But I'm of the camp that thinks it is rude to not make the ceremony without a damn good excuse.

    Thanks!  It was a great day, and I was so happy to be a part of it.They actually played the video at the end of the night so it didn't interrupt the party at all.  It was an awesome ending to a great day.  Then we said our goodbyes, and went home. :)

    We had at it our wedding last year and everyone loved it....It was a combo of a video filmed at Jones beach one day and then video from the day....we had them show it during dinner...it was the length of 2 songs....u can see samples of a wedding day edit on my videographer's website www.movingpicturesllc.com....u can actually see ours under the blog section...sept 2008 under daria and kelby...i think it is a great addition that most people will love......

    I like seeing the growing up pics and everyone getting ready--all the new material. ;-) I could definitely do without the ceremony footage as a guest. I recall saying last time I saw one, "I literally just LIVED this!" There's definitely a novelty factor that it's done so fast, but a lot of our friends were saying the same thing I was and thought it was AWish. (The wedding I am recalling was particularly AWish in general though, so that may have added to the somewhat negative perception.)

    i had it done and i liked it because i got to see my own ceremony. I was such a blur of nerves that it was really cool to see it come to life on the screen. Plus more hten 1/2 my guests didn't attend the ceremony so I don't think it was overkill. To each their own.
