Need a good name for a "discount" video offshoot

Im going to do a marketing experiment to drive up some volume in wedding videos. I need a good or even a little gawdy name for the website and marketing. All marketing will be internet based directed marketing through facebook and similar sites, a local wedding one-stop website and maybe a little google.

Examples of names I am looking at are:

cheapvideo.com (1st choice, and not available)
cheapmemories.com
videodiscounters.com
weddingvideodiscounters.com
cheapovideo.com
discountvideo.com
memorydiscounters.com
etc.

Catchy and off-beat is always memorable.

Any good ideas?

Cheap gives a negative feel to things as that can mean the quality is cheap not the price. I think the word you're looking for is value. valuevideo videostovalue or something like that.

Maybe you could add a fictional name too, like Uncle Bob's discount videos.

Cheap does seem to imply cheap although my intention is tounge-in-cheek.

some good ideas though:

teabagweddings.com (probably not)
unclebobsdiscountvideo.com (too long)
valuevideo.com (only available as not a .com)
bestvaluevideo.com (only available as not a .com)

Thanks for the ideas!

Here's one I toyed with..

ImTooCheapToHireAProfessionalWeddingVideographer.com

Includes your 'cheap' word as well as wedding, professional, and videographer!

Around here they have "2 Men and a Truck" moving services.

So why not a amanandacamera.com

nofrillsnupitals.com (make it rhyme)

You could just look at the names of countless cut-rate places in your area and call yours:

Imjustasbadas(insert name here)

or use one of these:

IncompetenceMemories.com
whyhavesomethinggood.com
itjustyourweddingmemories.com
ahhellwhogivesacrap.com
epicfailweddingvideo.com
youpaidmoneyforthiscrap.com
justliketheother70%.com
steamingpileofpoo.com
everyonelovesacliche.com

I see where you are getting at, rather than get a name, why not add " recession packages available" in your marketing plan.

I like the nofrillsvideo.com idea, but google would probably direct it to No Frills.

www.videoonabudget.com
www. budgetweddingvideos.com

How about Thrifty Video Production?

"Home of the $299 wedding video"

or

Discount Pro Video Services

"Where quality meets budget"

or

"Daddy's Camcorder Productions"

"Come Home to Savings"
