- Wedding: September 2013
So I got an email from our videographer last night that goes like this:
“Since there is so much time before your wedding and now, would you possibly be interested in the “love story” video? We think it could be a really nice thing to have down the road. It would be an interview of how the two of you met, telling the story of the two of you past, present, future. It would be a nice thing to play at the wedding as well. We have been wanting to do one and haven’t had a chance yet, we would be willing to work out a deal if you were at all interested.”
You may know that I didn’t even really care about having a videographer until I saw Ian’s work on our photographer’s site. Fiance couldn’t care less about the videographer, it is “my” expense that we are even hiring one (and the fact that I broke down sobbing when I watched the video and said “I want this for us!” and he said “ok, babe”).
Anyway, as you can see above, he is now trying to upsell the love story interview idea. At first I was like, there is no way I’m going to pay more to be your guinea pig, but then I got to thinking. If we were to do the love story interview (and it would have to be a great deal), would it be corny to show it at the beginning of the ceremony? Like, before Fiance and the pastor walk up, to kind of call the ceremony to order, so to speak? I had this idea because I just don’t see where it would go during the reception. Our friends did a slide show before their ceremony and it was really cute. I would just settle for showing it at the rehearsal dinner, but if I am going to pay for it, I want everyone to see it.
Is the whole love story interview cheesy? If we did do it, would it be dumb to show it before the ceremony?
Has anyone been to a wedding that has done something similar, or has anyone done something like this at their own wedding?
