We have a video! I was going to wait a while to show it to you but I have low impulse control so here it is:
I was a little nervous about using WedIt for our video. I had dreams of beautifully edited and filmed masterpieces and I knew that was not what I was going to get with flip cameras and non-professionals*.
HOWEVER, I could not be happy with our video! When you combine the price and the quality it is a no-brainer situation. The wedit team was amazing! I received all 5 flip cameras promptly before the wedding. After the wedding all I had to do was throw them back in the box and stick on the prepaid mailing label. Of course I lost the label and had to call for a new one but they just laughed and said it happened all the time. Within minutes I had a new label in my email inbox!
We went with the higher priced package so that we could get the 2 minute 'trailer'. I will admit the primary reason we got the trailer is so I could post it here on the hive! But it has been great to show people because who honestly wants to sit through someone else's 60 minute wedding video. I haven't even watched my own 60 minute video yet because I have been too busy playing and replaying my trailer. Oh and another example of the wedit team awesomeness is they made changes to the trailer after I told them there were certain sections I was not crazy about and our first dance was missing. Amazing!
Ok, my infomercial for wedit is over but to summarize... I love, love, love my video and if you are thinking about using them (or a similar service) DO IT!
Anyone else shocked at how much they love their video after they thought they didn't need one? Good experiences or bad experiences with these flipcam services?
*for anyone not in the know; wedit is a service that sends you flip cameras for your guests to record/video and then you send them back and they edit it together
