We have talked about photo slideshows in the past and given 5 tips for planning your photo slideshow. Today we are going to focus on wedding photo slideshow music and the order in which it should be played.

When planning your slideshow you want to tell a story, boy meets girl and they fall in love. How far back you go is completely up to you. It could start at the very beginning with the bride and groom as babies or only contain photos that have been taken since they met. Either way you want your music to help you tell that story.

We mentioned previously that your music should take your audience on a roller coaster. Start off slow then transition into a more upbeat song, saving your best song for the end. If your guests are going to be seated and watching the video from start to finish you want to limit it to about 4 songs, at most. The transitions between slow and fast songs will help to keep your guests attention. If you have the ability and would like to use clips of songs then limit your slideshow to no longer than 10 minutes. Remember a longer version can be created to play on a loop during the reception.

Here are some songs to consider when choosing the music for your slideshow.
