We are doing ours during dinner, between courses.

i’ve seen some people put a slideshow with no music during cocktail hour before the wedding party is introduced, as kind of a background thing that people could watch if they were inclined.  others (including myself) put the slideshow during dinner, so that everyone’s focus was on it.  it was more of a "main event" with music and everything.  i think it depends on how much you want people to pay attention to it.

good question! i was thinking the same thing. i have seen it done before the grand entrance, but i dont thinki can do this bc i want to be in the room when the slideshow plays. i am going to do this towards the end of the main meal, right before the first fast dance set.

I’ve seen many people show the slides before grand entrance. But I feel like that makes the couple waited for too long outside of the room! lolz… I am going to have mine show at the beginning of the dinner since I will have a minimal banquet-party style dinner. We will not have grand entrance nor dance. I guess that’ll entertain the guest during dinner. Plus, I want my FI to see the slide! I am trying to do it myself and make some surprise slides for him.

We did ours at the very end of the cocktail hour. It was only about 5 minutes long anyway, we played it on the large TV in the cocktail hour room, and then people filtered into the reception room while I rushed up to go change my outfit. It was a nice transition from mingling/drinking to the dinner portion of th evening.

I am going to do ours at the rehearsal dinner on a large screen with a projector, etc. At the wedding it will be set up on a laptop for whomever wants to view it.

I’m doing mine at the end of the dinner.  I like the idea that everyone, including the bridal party, will be able to see it while sitting down.
