Wedit: Film-it-Yourself Videography

Whether you are on a tight budget and on the fence about hiring a professional videographer, or if you have your videographer booked for wedding day but are afraid you are going to miss other memories during your long weekend affair: Don’t fret—Amarvelous Event has you covered! In this post, we’ll talk about Wedit—an alternative to wedding videography—as well as how it works, the pricing, and why this could be a great option for you!

I am a strong believer that you would regret not having video coverage of your big day. You may not watch the video often, but it will be something down the road you may want to have. Maybe you’ll take it out annually to watch on your anniversary, or maybe you’ll show it to your future children. We had family, friends, and coworkers who couldn’t make it to our wedding but watched our 10-minute video reel and loved the opportunity to see our special day. Whatever your reason, don’t regret not having video coverage.

How Wedit Works

Wedit is a system that allows you to cover videography of your entire wedding weekend without a videographer on site. Wait… What?!? You read that correctly. The reason why Wedit is so extremely affordable is because you aren’t paying the salary for someone to be on site at your event all day.

  1. Select your package.
  2. The Wednesday before your event, Wedit mails you five HD iPod Touches in the mail.
  3. Pick five people you are going to assign cameras to for the entire weekend (bridesmaids and groomsmen would be killer at this job), or you can distribute the job to as many people as you like throughout the weekend. Maybe a different person each day for each camera.
  4. Go crazy and take as much footage as you like! Each camera holds up to four hours of HD footage, so you may want to stagger who is filming during which hours.
  5. Mail back the cameras by the Tuesday after the wedding.

  • You aren’t only limited to the video content from the five Wedit cameras. You can also send Wedit other footage that you recorded, and the editors can add it into the final product.
  • You are not limited to Wedit editors either. You can also edit the content yourself or use a third-party editor.
  • If you selected an editing package through Wedit, then fill out the editing preference form and Wedit’s editing team uses your choices to create a professionally edited video that you will love.
  • Edited videos take about four to six weeks to receive.
  • After your video is edited, it will be uploaded directly to your Wedit account.
  • Should you want small changes, the editors will do one round of small changes.
  • Once you approve your edit, then you will be sent the final video on a USB to keep.

  • Your footage is available online a whole year for viewing, download, and sharing. You own the rights to everything you capture and can use the footage as you like.
  • Remember to download all the files to your computer before the year is up!

I think the main reason people choose not to do videography is due to funds. Photographers and videographers are costly because you are not just hiring staff for event day—They are on-site for eight to twelve hours, capturing the memories, then their job continues after the event as they begin editing the content that they captured! Plus, you are left with tangible photographs and videos that last a lifetime. Of course, photographers and videographers tend to be the priciest vendor.

If you are currently on the fence about paying for videography, then consider that the pricing for Wedit ranges from $374 to $649, and you only need a $50 deposit to reserve your wedding date. That is insanely cheap!

Wedit Has Thought of Everything

  • Wedit does not require signature for its packages when they arrive. This is awesome, because you will be running left and right during the days before your wedding, finishing last-minute tasks, spending time with family, and having salon treatments. No one has time to wait around for packages!
  • Wedit only ships cameras to the US. However, if your event is out of the country and you or a guest are traveling from the US to get there, then Wedit can mail the cameras to you before you leave. Canadians can contact customer service for other delivery options.
  • If the Wednesday through Tuesday timeline doesn’t work for your needs, then let Wedit know and they can add days, thus allowing you to capture all the moments.
  • The cameras have built-in flash and microphones, so get ready to rock those vows and dance floor reception pics.
  • The cameras allow you to zoom, but Wedit recommends you not zoom as it compromises the quality of the footage. Their editors are able to zoom in on the regular footage without creating a granular look. Just let them know what parts you would prefer closer-up. Gee… thanks, Wedit! You think of everything!
  • Wedit covers general wear-and-tear on the iPods. By signing the contract, you acknowledge that you are responsible for replacement if the iPod is lost or damaged.
  • The $50 that you pay to reserve the date is non-refundable. If you cancel before 60 days of your event, you will be issued a partial refund. If you cancel within 60 days of your event, you are not issued a refund.
