a simple slideshow.

I was fortunate enough to win a 16x20" canvas print recently from UPrinting.com, so tonight we picked out which picture we want to blow up and put on canvas.  We picked this engagement photo, taken by h.vivio photo.
We'll probably display it near the entryway at the wedding, along some other pictures from over the years.  We were originally going to have a slideshow in the normal sense of the word, but then we got lazy.  I don't want to figure out where to get a projector, etc. for the wedding.  Nor do I want to stop everything that's going on in order to play a slideshow during dinner.  I'd rather people look at pictures at their leisure if they're interested while they're having a drink during the cocktail hour.  So we are going to string up some photos along a wire, a la Mrs. Cherry Pie, or maybe a ribbon to dress it up a bit.  We'll put the canvas print somewhere in the mix and we'll be all set!

I've delegated this project to my fiance, and I'm glad I don't have to worry about it.  I do have to get on the ball and find pictures of me from my childhood, but besides that, it's all him!  Here are a few pictures I think we'll hang up.

A friend's wedding in summer '06

Dance recital, I must've been about 9 here.  I primarily want to use this one to embarrass my sister/MOH!

Easter morning, probably in '92 or so?

I must be about 6 or 7 in this one.  Check out those sweet bangs.  Gotta love the early '90s.

Unfortunately for you all, Mr. M's sisters don't put old pictures of him on facebook like mine do, and he hasn't scanned them in yet.  So no old photos of the other half quite yet.  I'll post some after he scans them!

Are you planning on having a slideshow at your wedding, or did you opt for the photo display route?

Congrats on winning the contest! That is so exciting! I know we plan on having one of our engagement pictures at the entrance of the reception. Plus after the wedding it will look great on a wall in our house.

I did a slideshow that was playing over and over at the beginning of the reception when everyone was walking in. I loved it. :)
