Want to skip the speeches at your wedding rehearsal dinner and use video instead? We’ve got you covered. Here’s a checklist of what you’ll need to make a video that shares your love story and gets wedding participants excited to see you walk down the aisle.





Style: Coming Up Roses
Songs: “Shine” by Curious; “I Found Love” by Cynthia Felton;
“Talkin’ About Love” by Preston Smith


  • Images and video from before you were together. Bonus points for cute baby and childhood images!)
  • The early days of your relationship
  • The engagement, or a recent photo of the two of you together (with the ring visible, of course)
  • Parents of the bride and groom
  • Other members of the bridal party
  • Preview of the wedding location


  • A screen or large-screen TV
  • A way to play the video (laptop, DVD player, etc.)
  • Video player cords
  • Projector (if not using a TV)


Video can help make your rehearsal dinner feel even more special. And if you follow the checklist, you’ll see how beautifully (and quickly) your video will come together.
