You can do it, or someone can do it for you. 

In terms of length, I think less is more.  I would also say I prefer to see them playing somewhere, where I can watch if I want, but not something that I am forced to sit and watch.

It just seems a little self centred to force people to watch a video of yourself.  So, playing in a corner is best.

We offer our clients a 21″ gold framed flat screen for slide shows. We also have an antiqued silver frame. The B&G simply provide us a jumpdrive with their images. We plug it in and run them (silent) on a loop during the reception. Looks great on the guest book table.

Perfect for the engagement photos, dating photos, child hood and family photos, etc.

I agree with andielovesj.  I am personally not a fan of slideshows at weddings.  I think maybe they’re better suited to being played at the rehearsal dinner or something.  If you do decide to do one, I’d put it somewhere where people have the option to watch instead of playing it in the middle of the reception as it can kind of be a buzz kill if people want to dance and socialize.  I think as the bride, you’re responsible for getting the pictures together on a jump drive or something, and then depending on who is responsible for playing it – you would give it to them.  You’d need to have either a TV screen or projector, so I would imagine you would just give the images to whoever is handling the projector and they would play it for you.

I love the idea of a personal slideshow 🙂 it is one thing that my FI actually suggested 🙂 so we are definitely doing it (it is usually hard to get him to give a definite opinion or suggest something for the wedding without just going with whatever i suggest so this was a bonus!)
