I know I wouldn’t want something like that played at my wedding; however, I can see the point of it being a mood lightener and funny. Maybe you could put it on a screen in a corner somewhere and guests could have a choice whether or not they want to view it.

To me you’re being a little oversensitive about it, but I guess we all have our own sense of humor. Not sure why you’d feel “humiliated”, it’s kind of a rare thing to have such a funny video tape to play and it’s the perfect setting. Sometimes things like that can really make the night so memorable and fun.

If you’re really not comfortable say no, but I’m just not sure what the big deal is. To each their own!

I completely understand where you are coming from. This would mortify me! I think the rehearsal dinner is a good compromise, and I definitely think you have the right to put your foot down about it not being played at the reception. 

My sister and I have a long-running joke about spilling certain embarassing stories on the other’s wedding day, but we would never actually follow through with it!
