Wedding Reception Style: Creating a Wedding Reception Video Slideshow?
Q: My fiance and I really want our wedding guests to get to know each other. We've collected lots of pictures of them over the years, and now we want to put together a video or slide show that can be played during the wedding reception. How do we go about doing this?
A: What a great idea! Rummage through those old photo albums and collect favorite pictures of wedding guests (sentimental, hideous, adorable, whatever appeals). Then have your wedding videographer translate the photos (in a continuous loop if possible) to videotape. You can play the tape during reception cocktail hour, maybe using several monitors. Family and friends will get a kick out of seeing themselves in bell-bottoms and pouffy '80s hair. Another option? Rent an overhead slide projector and white screen to make your own movie magic!
