@lamkky:  I think it would be nice if it were playing in the background somewhere on a loop, so that people can look when theyre interested, but not feel like they have to watch it start to finish all the way through. Are you planning on making it with accompanying music? I think if its a one time thing, the music you pick will really set the tone, and if its not super slow, people might be more interested. That being said, I used to watch half hour long slideshows at my summer camp (photos from the summer) and even though it was a large camp and I didn’t recognize people in half the pictures I still thought it was interesting because I recognized the general locations (like your aunts might be familiar with your house) or the people (I hope everyone can pick you and your FH out in the pictures). If you or FH are in each pic, at least half of the audience should be able to recognize an element of each picture (whether its you, the location, or your mom from 20 years ago). I personally wouldn’t mind a 10 minute show. Its the only thing I remember from my uncles wedding 10 years ago (because I was in a picture and I thought that was so cool [because I was 10 and apparently famous].

ETA: Also its way more interesting if they switch back and forth between you and him. Like a pic of you when you were a baby and then a pic of him when he was a baby ect. Otherwise half of the audience won’t pay attention because its all about the person they don’t know as well for several minutes.

Cute music and funny pictures are good. Have it no longer than ten mins though.
