    Yeah, I vote don’t do it. Don’t let it happen. I’ve never been at a wedding and been like, “Hey! This is fun! But do you know what would make this better! A SLIDESHOW!” This has never happened.

    This post made me laugh.  With you, not at you.  You were able to verbalize the exact way I feel about slideshows at rehearsal dinners and, worse, the wedding reception.  I made sure my mother knew 100% that a slideshow was not going to happen.  Thank goodness FI’s mother is not computer literate and would never think of a slideshow!  Maybe I’m a snob too, because I think they are full-on cheese at weddings.

    If she’s insisting on a slideshow, maybe it can be on in the background, as opposed to an “everybody must be silent for the next 27 minutes while we watch this” kind of thing. I don’t know, just trying to make it better. I don’t mind slideshows in the background – it’s funny to see cute pictures of people, but I’d hate having to just sit and watch one. Good luck figuring it all out.
