Minute Judging, Part 2
By: Posted On: 2014-06-10

In my last tip, I argued that no slide show at a court of honor should last longer than three or four minutes, the length of the typical pop song. Of course, you may have many more slides of your honoree that you’d like to show.

If that’s the case, never fear. A great time to show additional slides is as guests arrive. It’s a great way to introduce your honoree in a fun way before the more formal ceremony begins.

Another, and perhaps even better, option: Run your slide show before and during the reception. Often, there’s a lengthy delay between the end of the ceremony and the honorees arrival at the reception; he just has too many hands to shake and too many pictures to pose for. Running a slide show while guests are waiting is a great way to fill the time.
