Hi – wow $2000 sounds insane I agree for borrowing a projector. Maybe others can opine on that, since we didn’t use one at our reception.

As for the alternative you mentioned, I have seen at other pple’s weddings where they have set out pictures in frames of the bride and groom at different ages in their life (from baby pics up to adulthood, along with their engagement photos). I have also seen pictures displayed of both sides of the bride and grooms families.

I have only seen these done where they displayed the frames on a table either by the guestbook/sign in book or alone. Not necessarily creatively displayed but looked really nice and adds such a personal touch. Either way i think its a great idea to do something like you had suggested to show a timeline of both of your lives and to the point where you both met and then got engaged, etc. 🙂

If you still want to do a slideshow, you can do what we did – bought an digital picture frame and set it on the guest book table.

That sounds insane for a projector! Most places I looked were like $200 max. Wow.

This couple asked all their guests to bring a photo of themselves with the bride, groom or the couple.

Here’s one on an easel

Hmm.. can you bring in your own projector? Or negotiate the price somehow….That is what I did. It’s insane how much the venues tries to make make off of borrowing their projectors when we were only using it for 5 mins for a slideshow. My venue wanted to charge $500!
