Okay you know how some people have slideshows of their childhoods then their lives together.
I have downloaded mypulisher and have been thinking that I would create a photobook of our childhoood and lives together instead of doing a slideshow.
What do you ladies think I should do?

    I'm sorry I know this is probably a stupid question but what would the difference be? Wouldn't you be showing the photo album so it would kind of be the same thing as a slideshow? Am I missing something? Sorry I'm not any help.

    Glenda, I was thinking of just leaving the album on the guest book table, I don't know if I want people to have sit and watch our pictures, not sure if that is annoying or not?

      Oh Duh!! I'm so dumb! I'm having a blonde moment even though I have black hair. LOL. Okay so a couple of years back my friend got married (in a hometown wedding) and while everyone ate dinner she did a slideshow of all pics of her and her FI kissing. Every single pic was of them kissing. And she played "Kiss Me" by sixpence none the richer. I thought people were going to gag. And it literally lasted forever. It was so obnoxious and made all her single girlfriends feel soooooo depressed. So I totally know what your saying about not wanting it to be too much. But then I attended this other wedding where not only did they include pics of themselves as kids and then grownup, but they also included pics of most of their family and friends and everyone loved it and felt really included in the wedding. My FI and I are planning on doing a slideshow and we are going to make sure that we have as many pics as possible of us with our guests, this way people will feel welcome and they will know how much they mean to us. I was thinking that I would do it during the welcome dinner instead so it's kind of like a welcome slideshow. I think your album idea is very cute and you should def do that if you don't want to do the slideshow.

        Christine,

        I think it all comes down to how much time you have for your reception. I've been to a couple of weddings where they have slideshows during dinner and they've added a nice touch. But a couple seem to have tried to cram too much during their reception and it seemed very scripted.

        Also, if you do, make sure the person who is setting it up during the reception knows what they are doing. My very good friend had a groomsman set it up on his laptop, well it took him like 15min to try to set the whole thing up.

              Another option is to just have the slideshow playing during a cocktail hour - just put it on repeat and people can watch it as they choose.

                Ooh that's such a cute idea Ann! Amy on my immediate to do list is to send a deposit to Juan, then do my website, and then order my STD's. Getting people's addresses has been a PITA! I also decided to get the boarding pass ones. Are you getting magnetic ones or the regular ones? I tried finding magnetic ones but I couldn't find them.
