What's important on your wedding? Photos or Videos

When I was still preparing for my wedding, I too was caught by this question. I was on a shoe string budget so I had to be wise with my decisions. My husband and I carefully weighed our options and came up with these:

* Photos will last a long time and can be preserved well
* When friends and family come for a visit they would not ask for your wedding's video but my wedding album.
* Photos can be edited *cough* photoshopped so I'd look thinner (remember I was 9 months pregnant!)
* We both appreciate quality photos and we are both NOT camera shy
* Don't you just love the drama of pre nuptial photo shoot (some call it engagement photo session)
* You can even do the trash the dress session with your photographer (of course with this one you don' t use the REAL wedding dress but cheaper and rented ones)
* We were offered unlimited shots for our wedding plus other freebies like coffe table book, guestbook, etc.
* Photos show minute details of the event such as wedding flowers, wedding dress, wedding ring, flower girl's dress and so much more.
*Photos will freeze precious moments and add dramatic effects to it.

I now professional photography and videography costs a lot so you can just choose one and get a cheaper version of the other. What I did was, I asked a friend to handle our video camera and had it edited by another friend who knows how to edit videos. And hired professional photographers instead :)

In times like these, we need to think twice or thrice before spending money. SO I hope you'll be wise in planning for your wedding!
