The wedding slideshow songs that you choose to play during the various parts of the slideshow can really make or break it.
Think of your wedding slideshow as a real movie, with a real soundtrack.
What song would fit best for showing the groom as a child and growing up?
Was he a naughty boy?
Or always the gentleman and your knight in shining armor?
And the bride? Was she a tomboy from the day she was born or a total lady? Choose wedding slideshow songs that describes each one as best as possible.
Generally you will need about 2 - 3 songs, depending on which kind of slideshow you are making. For a slideshow of your wedding day you will need about 2 nice love songs - perhaps your wedding song?
For a slideshow of you two growing up and meeting each other, you will need 3 songs. One for the groom growing up, one for the bride growing up, and a love song for the photos showing the two of you together.
If the songs are a little long you can always fade them out at an appropriate point. Whatever you do, don't just fill all the music space for the sake of filling it. Use only the photos that really tell the story.
