Friends Can't Attend: Videos OK?
IÂm looking for suggestions about my brotherÂs reception.
It's his first marriage, and he's over 30. The wedding will be far from home near her family, so his friends can't make it. He'd like me to participate, and I had the following idea:
IÂd like to get a 5-minute presentation from each of his old friends (we're scattered internationally, so I can't hunt them down and film them myself). They have great senses of humor and are smart and articulate, and I hope they have video recorders! I thought maybe they could each find a photo (however old) including the groom and relate something about the occasion, with a congratulations at the end. Sort of a "meet his friends" presentation since few in her family have met him, and itÂd make him feel surrounded by friends.
What do you think? Too much for the reception? Have you heard of presentations like this and do you have tips & themes & ideas?
By the way, yes - he'd LOVE this!
