Bride & Groom Picture Slide Show at Reception

Recommended Posts

In the spirit of sharing.... my brother and sister both did a bride and groom slide show at their wedding receptions. Of course, we're planning one, too. It's set to music, and it runs about 8 minutes long. Part I shows pictures of the bride growing up -- from newborn to toddler to awkward teenage years and so on; Part II shows the groom growing up; and Part III shows special moments as a couple. We will also try to mix in pictures of all of our guests and family. For example, my to-be-mother-in-law found a great picture of my fiance and his best man when they were about 11, and I have some great pictures of my parents when they were young. We're doing ours in PowerPoint so nothing fancy or overly technical. All you need is a laptop and a projector. Most photographers and hotels have projectors you can rent out. Anyhow, it's always been my favorite part of the reception.

We're doing this for our AHR in Austin. One of our family friends is putting it together. We can't wait to see the finished product... even though I'm sure my FI snuck in some super embarassing pics of me.

We are having a slide show too...we are showing it at our welcome cocktail party the night before the wedding. I think it is a special touch to the event!

we're doing one too! My little brother has some experience in putting them together for a DJ friend of his. And My stepdad has a projector so I guess all we really need is a screen. I think we may do this on night #1 (Welcome Dinner) as well as a sort of get-to-know-you thing since we have so many different groups coming together for our wedding.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
