Yes, definitely bring your fiancée and put her to work. Maybe you'll find out some things about your compatibility under stress that will make you more or less likely to want to be in the starring role at a future wedding.

Good Idea During Post

Here's a little ditty I figured out in a brief (and seldom) moment of inspiration: During editing, I discovered a way to keep the bride and father dance and groom and mother dance interesting without having the video viewers falling asleep watching the two dances on video. What I do is this:

I do split screen (or any creative version thereof) and have the dance on the left (or right) and bridesmaid (or groomsmans) personal greetings on the opposite side. They play side by side and kill two birds with one stone. I just received fabulous feedback on my last wedding.

Good luck!
Interesting, if true. And interesting anyway.
