The wedding slide show is indeed meant to be sharing your memories. In order to make it special and unique, you have to select the photos with the greatest care. The sequence of showing the photos is also an essential element.

As discussed above, most couples will put the photos in their childhood into the slide show. If this is the case, you can consider showing the photos in time sequence.

Lastly, if you have taken pre-wedding photos, you can use them to make a perfect ending of the slide show.

In fact a slide show can be more than just showing the photos. The sound effect can be a vital part in order to make the slide show a successful one.

This will certainly make the show more interesting. It can also be very romantic if you can tell all the guests how you got together.

However, if you and your spouse are not individuals who can deliver speeches well, you can have a friend or relative to make the voice over for you. If your parents feel interested, it will be even more interesting if they can do the voice over. Of course it will be more perfect if both of you and your parents are going to do the voice over together. It can be certain that it will make the wedding more memorable to you and your parents, and also the guests.

If you would like to make the slide show like a narrative, you can try to make it like a fairy tale. For example, you can imagine that you are a couple in your seventies and you start recall all the good memories, the childhood, how you met till the wedding. In fact, a famous Japanese singer adopted this method of telling story in his concert a few years ago.

The above idea is undoubtedly an interesting one. However, more coordination between you and the vendor for your slide show will be needed. You may need to take a video before the wedding, in order to get the footage when you are a pair of old couple. It is important to explain your idea and concept clearly to the vendor. Otherwise it will only ruin all your planning and ideas.
