Thanks to Jason Traub from Elixir Entertainment for answering this week’s reader question:
My fiance and I are hosting many out-of-town guests that don’t know us as a “couple.” How do we help our guests get to know us during our wedding weekend?
A pre-wedding interview is a great way for guests to get to know a couple. Here’s what I like to do with this common situation. We take the future bride and groom to a park, restaurant, or other sentimental spot and talk about the upcoming wedding, their relationship, and their story as a couple. We catch it all on video. We then edit this pre-wedding interview footage along with childhood photos and existing footage to create a really great rehearsal dinner montage. We can also use the additional footage for the wedding video. It’s always a hit with the guests and a great way to start of the wedding weekend, especially if guests don’t really know the bride or groom all that well. The videos capture the bride and groom’s personalities and the story of the couple.
