Hi, I'm trying to get a realistic cost of having my wedding filmed from getting ready to the first dance. It seems most companies aren't very forthcoming with their rates on their websites and want you to contact them directly for quotes. Before I go giving out my contact info all over the place I was hoping people could let me know what a realistic cost is so I have an idea of whether it's something we can even stretch to.\nAlso I've been advised it may be cheaper to have a wedding highlights video rather than have the full day filmed and edited. Apparently this comprises of a sort of montage of the key moments (getting ready, ceremony, throwing bouquet etc) there's no audio, you just select tracks to be played over approx 20 minutes of footage (such as what you walked down the aisle/had first dance to etc)\nI'm not sure what I think of this option, probably because I have my heart so set on the "traditional" video package.\nI'd be interested to know what other brides (past or future!) think to the highlights option, if anyone has had this done and again a rough idea of what would be a realistic cost.\nThanks in advance for any replies.
