Creating the perfect wedding slideshow – A Moment Frozen In Time

brideandgroomHere at Kranich’s Jewelers, we want you to have the best possible experience on your wedding day. We know that we have the engagement ring and the wedding bands that you are looking for, but there are so many other things happening on your wedding day that we thought we could offer a little comment.

One thing that I have noticed becoming more and more popular is a wedding slideshow during the reception. The past two weddings that I have attended both had these visual trips down memory lane and each are very entertaining, especially if you are a guest an occasionally see yourself in one of the snapshots.

If you have a wedding planner, they usually take care of setting up the slideshow, perhaps even producing it themselves. However, a lot of professional photographers may offer to create your custom slideshow for your reception and include it in your photo package price. You just have to ask them if they have the software to make it, and supply them with the photos that you want to use.

But as is the case of your author, most people out there have at least one person they know that has some computer experience. Some of the best slideshows that I have seen have come from a friend of the bride and groom. And today all of the tools needed to create a slideshow of your own are easy to find. Lots of people use power point every day for presentations. It’s not hard to use that same technique to create a slide show. Too much hassle? Simply put all of your photos in a windows folder and use the slideshow function in the image viewer. If you want to go a little fancier, one of the most useful slideshow websites that I can recommend is http://animoto.com/. They offer the ability to add video into your slideshows with professional style.

So if you are looking to add this little touch to your big day, we hope that we might have offered some helpful tips. Your wedding planner can handle all of these details, but if you do it yourself, you can still come away with a memorable display that everyone is sure to love.
