You want everything to be perfect for your wedding day! The flowers, the dress, the music, etc. But to have a perfect wedding slideshow, you might think that hiring a video production company to create a theme styled slideshow is the only solution. We’re here to tell you that’s not entirely true! Sure they’re capable but before we talk about ideas and themes for your slideshow, here are some points to consider before hiring any company to create your slideshow:

  • Do they have examples
  • Cost of the slideshow
  • How many photos are include in the price
  • Cost of additional photos
  • Can video clips be added
  • Music selection
  • Style and theme of the slideshow

All those aspects need to be considered before you make a decision on who to hire. But the fact remains that hiring a wedding video production company to create a wedding slideshow can be very expensive.

Take a look at the examples they offer. Is the quality they offer worth the money? Most slideshows we’ve seen are mostly boring and slow with pictures slowly moving on the screen. That’s because that style of slideshow is relatively easy for a video producer to create. Anything fancier than that will take considerably more time and as a result… more money!

Cost Effective Wedding Slideshows With Style

Here’s an idea that you probably didn’t even consider… Making the slideshow yourself! And not only that! You can make one that is more upbeat, more professional, and more exciting to watch than one made by a wedding production company!

At Wedding Slideshow Ideas, we want you to make the most of your wedding budget and that’s why we recommend you use Animoto to create your slideshow. If you’ve only seen the boring slideshows we talked about earlier, you’re in for a treat!

Slideshows With Matching Backgrounds and Elements

When you make a slideshow with Animoto, you actually get to choose a theme or style that is carried throughout your slideshow as the background video and as elements that help transition through your photos! And the best part is that all you have to do is upload your photos, arrange them in the order you’d like them to appear, select music and you’re done! It is literally THAT easy!

Take a look at some of the themes you can use in your slideshow:
