@OHBridefromCA: cut down the songs. skip a verse, use the bridge only – something like that.

You could always try fading one into the next – so there aren’t actually cuts, just a fade-out/fade-in

That or a shorter song.

Our slideshow was actually like 10 minutes long – but we meant for it to play during dinner, so people weren’t forced to sit and stare. But the DJ/venue messed up and made everyone sit and wait. I didn’t even realize it until halfway through, but it must have been ok, because people kept laughing or clapping the whole time. Still irks, me lol, I did NOT want to be ‘that bride’ who made her guests sit and wait. I guess they got to eat their salad though.

I do the slideshows for all of my friend and family weddings. They are almost always 8-10 minutes long and they really don’t seem that long. How long are you flashing each picture for? I tend to find that shorter is better – 3 to 4 seconds max. It also depends on the kind of pictures…are you doing just couples pictures? If they’re growing up photos too, they’re often funny and enjoyable for people to see for longer periods of time.

If you’re still concerned about time, I agree with the PP who talked about fading the songs. Cutting at the end of a slideshow can sound choppy… you can cut the first song short and start the second song later if you’re wanting to keep the time down.
