Dos & Don’ts of a Wedding Photo Slideshow
Today wedding slideshows have been gaining popularity all over the world. It comes as no surprise – slideshow is probably the best way to share wedding photos and video clips with a newly wedded couple and their guests.
Create a Storyline
Think over an engaging plot. Hardly anyone will enjoy watching photos simply coming and going one after another. It’s dull no matter how awesome the images are. Tell your Love Story to the guests. You could start with a few pictures showing how the whole thing began in case someone’s never heard but wants to know where this hearts connection started. Make it a story.
Decide on the Slideshow Design
Decide on the style of your wedding slideshow and select the embellishments & set of colors to use. You can choose from Romantic, Elegant, and Vintage styles.
Use Short Videos to Add Dynamics
A few video clips included in your wedding slideshow will add more dimension to it. As short as few seconds videos included with the photos will make a difference. Pick the most significant moments filmed both at the ceremony and reception to make this day really unforgettable.
Don’t Make It Too Long
There are probably hundreds of photos and you find all of them amazing. Still, try limiting yourself to 30-40 shots and pick only the best images. Otherwise your wedding picture slideshow can be tiresome. Also, find a middle ground between traditional posed photographs and natural spontaneous images.
Choose the Right Music
Picking a music track for a wedding video slideshow is worth special attention. It should fit the whole story. Say ‘No’ to slow songs – they will lullaby the audience. Surely, it’s difficult to keep the yawning viewers interested. Some good choices would be the traditional wedding march or the newlyweds’ first dance song applied to your slideshow.
Don’t Overuse Animation Effects
Of course, animation is what differs a slideshow from a traditional photo album. But too many special effects can mess up your slideshow. Create a wedding slideshow with smooth gradient transitions between the slides so the viewers don’t get dizzy while watching your creation.
