One of the things that we decided late in the wedding planning game (and kind of on a whim) was working with Wedit, a video aggregation service of sorts. Essentially, we looked high and low for a videographer in our budget, and pretty much gave up. Instead, we opted to buy a bunch of FlipCams on Black Friday to give to people during the wedding then edit it all together ourselves. Well, then we happened upon Wedit four months later for a STEAL on a wedding deal site and I couldn’t resist, so we sold those FlipCams on eBay and booked Wedit.
We decided to pass out the five Wedit FlipCams to the the Baconator’s little Bro, a bridesmaid, a guest from Chicago that knows lots of local folks, a Minnesotan friend that we met in England who is super outgoing, and we mounted one on a tripod at the back of the ceremony. With these folks picked out, we were able to get some behind the scenes action from the morning, the tea ceremony, the wedding ceremony and lots of the reception.

I know, I know, the video quality isn’t great, but it’s actually really awesome on the DVDs. Well, except the darkness…the darkness is because candles are great for ambiance, but not for video. The same can be said for the dark dance floor: great for dancing and ambiance, bad for video.
Are you thinking of going the DIY video route, the professional videographer route or a Semi-DIY like we did?
