Before making your wedding slideshow, you will need to choose a program. There are many tools you can use, but one tool I will recommend is PowerPoint. As it is easy to use, and it has a step by step guide when you are in the program. Your wedding photos, videos and songs can all be inserted into it.  A wedding slideshow would be easily done with it.


As you may have lots of photographs and videos want to include in your wedding slideshow, one thing to do before you make your wedding slideshow with PowerPoint is to select photographs, video clips, songs and anything else you want to insert to your wedding slideshow.

Slow romantic songs and Fast dancing songs will have different feeling and drive different emotion. As long as the pace of showing pictures are matching to the music.
