    I like the idea because I really hate people watching me, so I would feel like there is a better chance they are watching the slidewhow instead haha but that is just my thoughts

    We did the slideshow at the rehearsal dinner. I have also seen it played on a loop during cocktail hour. I wouldn’t want to play it during the first dance because I think you give too much for people to look at. Just my 2 cents

    I think that would be cute! Especially if you don’t like the attention. Why not?

    I wouldn’t do it during the first dance because people won’t be focused on you guys. They’ll probably be watching the slide show. During the rehearsal dinner is a good idea from one of the PPs.

    You could always cut your first dance down to like 2 minutes. Just have the DJ/Band stop the song at a logical point.

    tacky is definitely the wrong word.

    i just think there would be a better time during the reception to put on a slideshow than your first dance.

    We had a slide show that played on loop during the reception but I wouldn’t want to watch a slideshow during the first dance if I were a guest at your wedding.

    I’d say not to do the slide show during the song; I don’t think it’s tacky, but guests may want to do one or the other (e.g. devote 100% to the one activity happening).

    But maybe this idea can help you: My Fiance and I aren’t good dancers and don’t like a lot of attention (great for getting married, huh? haha).  We’ll do the first dance right before the dancing actually starts.  We’ll dance for about a minute (by ourselves), then have the DJ invite others to dance or make sure to designate bridal party members to come join us.  Then after the song ends, we’ll jump into the fast-dancing music for the rest of the dancing.  Just an idea.

    I don’t think it’s tacky at all, but it’s a lot of extra effort and in my experience the only one who watches them are the mother’s/sentimental Aunt’s. If you want to do one you absolutely should though!
