Five years ago, my sister/MOH asked me and my now-FI to ‘star’ in a music video for this high school film project she had to complete. At the time, I was not happy about it, and essentially only agreed to do it after my mother forced me. It involved me wearing this thrift-shop 1980s wedding gown (we ripped off the puffy sleeves), running around the University I was currently attending (embarrassing for a 20 year old!!) and lipsynching to this My Chemical Romance song I didn’t know. it was a long time ago now, but I think I was chasing after my now-FI (then BF), and at the end he had to pretend to run me over with his car. I swear at the time I thought it was going to jynx me and FI from ever actually getting married lol. I’ve never seen the final product.
Fast foward five years, and my sister is pretty adament that she wants to play the video at our wedding. I get the appeal – its funny to see this five year old video of me in the dress, and now us still together on our real wedding day. But, my wedding is going to be a pretty formal/class affair. I don’t want to feel humiliated. My sister says its ‘really funny’ since she wasn’t able to match our lip synching and the music up properly while editing. I casually asked her to not play it, or to play it at the rehearsal dinner, and she’s being pretty insistent that she’ll just play it ‘later in the evening’ at the reception. Fiance is surprisingly OK with it, since he thinks it will lighten up the mood and make the recepition fun.
I know I tend to be overly sensitive sometimes – should I just let this go? I’m just scared the video will be as bad as I remember, and i’ll feel humiliated at my own wedding!
