    We are doing the picture slideshow with music but we are having it shown at our rehearsal dinner. I wish I could DIY! Good for you! Yours sounds really cute and very unique! We are having it done by our videographer and it’ll be the traditional one with our growing up pictures and then our dating ones.

    We did a slideshow that I designed.  Our purpose for it was as a background and it was constantly running through the night.  It took me a couple of nights of work to put the pictures and video in the order that I wanted with transitions that I liked, but we had A LOT of pictures in it!   It was about 20-25 minutes long and covered the 2 of us growing up through meeting/dating and finally to our e-pics and civil ceremony.

    No we are not having a slideshow… and even if we were going to do it, it would have to be playing while other things are going on. I wouldnt dedicate a time just for a slideshow because people tend to get bored after the first 45 secs

    We didn’t do one. If we had, I think we would have just left it on a loop somewhere for people to see at their leisure. Honestly, I think 8 minutes is rather long to have everyone sitting and watching.

    We had a slideshow that was about 10 mins at our rehearsal dinner. DH made it himself and it was awesome. In the beginning it told our story of how we met and got together in a really cute way. I wish I had it online because its kind of awesome!

    We’re going to set up a slideshow of just pictures on a digital frame and put it by the guestbook. We’re not big fans of the large AV presentations.

    We are doing a slideshow. I have made my own for friends weddings as a gifts in the past, but for my Wedding my Dad will be making it. He runs a wedding photography/videography business so he has professional software to put together a really nice montage for me.

    I was just going through pictures to include last night 🙂 This is one thing I am really looking forward to on the big day!

    @Ahone:  I think it’ll be fine!  People will watch it to see all the pictures.  I went to a wedding where the couple had the slideshow playing in the church before the wedding.  It was great!  We loved looking at all their pictures.

    We are thinking about making one.  Still not sure if I want to tackle that project.  I do a lot of editing for my job, so I’m experienced…just not sure yet if I want the headache. lol!
