Although we live in the digital age, sometimes it’s nice to see real, framed photos. The older generation has hundreds of photos that sit on mantles and end tables. So instead of just creating a slideshow set to music, create a walk down memory lane for your guests.
Start by asking wedding guests to bring a favorite family photo. Then, you and your event planner can set up a place where the guests can set or hand the photos. In many event spaces there is a hallway or walkway near the entrance to the reception; this is a great space to fill with old family photos. And the collection of frames adds an authentic feel to the walk of memories.
If your guests are reluctant to part with their framed photo, encourage them to display the photo on the table. This is a great device for guests for interact.
Luckily, because we live in the digital age, you can have a friend or family member use a phone or digital camera to snap photos of all those photos. Then, you can quickly add the photos into a photo montage and use them in a slideshow during the reception.
Weddings are family events, and while it’s a day for the bride and groom, it’s also a day for family members to reunite and share memories. Family photos are the perfect way to share the family love.
