    I thought about this, but you won’t be able to actually see the pictures if its sunny out! Is your ceremony indoors? Then I think it would be fine.

    I really enjoy slideshows! I’m quite surprised at the responses from that other post. I think its a great way to see/remember the bride and groom growing up and their relationship together. 

    I also really like the idea of playing it before the ceremony starts. Nobody is “required” to be there, but it’s a good way to alert people that stuff is going to be starting soon. I say go for it, and I would make it even longer! (A friend of mine had a 15 minute slideshow before her ceremony.)

    You could get a digital picture frame and put it on the table with the favors and guest book, so people can see it if they want, but won’t feel obligated to stand there and stare at it.

    I wouldn’t consider this a forced viewing of the slideshow.  People can watch it or they can choose to socialize instead.  To me, a forced viewing would be, for example, everyone has been seated for dinner, they are asked to direct their attention to the slideshow, and no food or beverages are served until the slideshow ends.
