Thank goodness my wedding is over a year away!Its going to take that long to get the slideshow just the way we want it.Plus Im not not creative so Im always second guessing the wording Im choosing.Have any of u made s slideshow?U dont have to show pics,but what wording did u use?For the baby slides,kid slides,teen slides,adult slides and then finally when u were a couple slides??
Im even having problems with the wording of the first slide.For the first slide I have the wording:
John & Amanda
Photos throughout the years
Then the wording for the second slide:
Johns baby Pictures
Wording for the next slide:
Amandas baby pictures
Thats just some of the wording that I have and it just doesnt sound right.Any idea’s? Am I doing okay?Is it too bland?Plus do I have to have wording on every slide?U think I can get away with just having picyures on some of them?Reason Im asking is because I have seen some slideshows and it was crowded with pics,wording,etc.Need advice.HELP.
Thanks for any help.Anybody else gonna present a slideshow during the reception?

I don’t think that wording on each slide is necessary at all (and may draw away attention from looking at the photos). Perhaps just a few little ‘in between’ slides to show transitions would be nice.
For example, you could use the phrases you’ve listed. Also, you could show a slide of a birthday cake (like 13, to indicate your teen years are coming next), or a photo of your high school or college to show that age range. Visual cues are nice. Other phrases like ‘the sandbox/diaper/early years,’ ‘sweet sixteen,’ ‘college bound,’ ‘puppy love,’ etc, can be used so that it’s not “john’s x” and then “amanda’s x,” it just covers that group of photos for both.
Really, for slide shows, I think it’s more fun to see photos of the couple together/dating. So maybe J’s baby photos, A’s baby photos, J as a kid/teen, A as a kid/teen, ‘first date’/beginning relationship photo, engagement pics, (and if you’re super techy, upload a guest/photo photo from the ceremony as ‘the end/a new beginning’). Just a few suggestions, but I hope they help.
