We just found out that my fiance's best man is being deployed to Egypt in February and will not be able to attend our wedding. We still want to include him in our wedding, however. My fiance had the idea to video conference him in to do the best man speech. Our venue has an AV room and a projection screen so we could probably make this work, but I'm worried that the connection might not be good or some other technical difficulty might happen.
We are also considering asking him to pre-tape a speech, but he is a really funny guy whose humor works better live.
Do you all have any suggestions? Have you ever seen anything like this before?
