Wedding Reception Slide Show Presentation

At the reception - set up your own slide show (PowerPoint presentation) or hire a professional to walk your guests through when you met - to the present time. That will keep your guests busy while you take photos.

My daughter is getting married in June and even though I have seen slide shows for several occasions I never thought of doing it for the reception. What a fantastic idea! Showing pictures of the bride & groom growing up, dating and becoming a couple would be a wonderful way to pass time. I just hope I can get enough pictures together by then. Also, how do you suggest it be shown? Our reception is going to be held outside following the wedding (1pm).

Thanks for the great idea!

In response to Amy's question, if it is an outdoor wedding, you might inquire about borrowing a PowerPoint projector from a local school or college and then projecting the slide show onto a sheet put up against a wall.


Or, if you actually have a slide projector, I think Wal-Mart may still turn photos into slides in their photo departments.

I am working on a slide show for my daughters reception. Is there a rule for too short or too long?

I would recommend 10-15 minutes. Your guests will lose interest if it is longer than that. Most people choose two or three songs as background music.
