    Hi danielle…are you talking about the photo slideshow (photos growing up through engagement, etc?)

    I don’t have mine all planned out yet, but I do not plan on having wording.

    I’ve seen the slideshows done at both the ceremony and the reception. I haven’t decided when I will show mine yet—I think it largely depends on how much attention you want your guests to pay for it.

    A wedding I attended recently had a good idea: They played the slideshow at the end of the ceremony after the bride, groom and wedding party had left the sanctuary. While the guests were viewing the slideshow, the bride/groom/wedding party was preparing for their big exit into the limo!

    I want to use my digital picture frame to show off our e-photos.

    I am doing a slideshow that will run on a loop through the whole night and I am including pictures of us and pictures of us with all of the friends and family that will be at the wedding (small wedding and big picture people).

    Because it is running all night I will not be setting it to music – it will just run to whatever the DJ is playing at the time. I am not using any words it will literally just be random selection of pictures so hopefully when people look up they will see different pics each time.

    This is the less stressful way of putting together a slideshow!

    Good Luck!

    I am showing mine at the rehersal dinner only. I think it will be a nice touch for those who are sharing the day with us. Several of my friends have done it this way also. On the other hand, I have gone to weddings when they show it at the reception, too.

    My friend had around 100 ppl at hers and had everyone come on the dance floor and watch it…it wouldn’t work if you had a large guest list.

    I agree with Gemstone, depends on how much you want people to pay attention & the size of your guest list.

    No words in mine, or the ones I have seen. Just pictures and music.

    danielle – I’m thinking of just leaving the digi photo frame on the guestbook table and leave it going throughout the reception.

    We did ours at the rehearsal dinner instead of the wedding.

    I don’t want mine to be an event at all, since that can feel kind of awkward sometimes.  We’re setting up photos and digital frames in the area where we’re having the cocktail hour.  It will be up all night, very casual.

    For the wedding here, we’re just doing a soundless 7-8 minute slideshow that will loop as guests arrive – just us as kids, growing up, some dating pics, etc. No real theme.

    For the U.S. receptions, we’re going to do an “event” type slideshow, showing us growing up side by side in a timeline, accompanied to music, and ending with an actual video clip montage from the wedding itself (entrance, dancing, cake cutting, etc.). We will enter once the video ends.
