Okay, so I’m a newly wed learning howtobeawife 🙂 And I went from a few weeks of not knowing how to let go of the wedding to getting obsessed with setting up house. Now, I have all our pictures back and I LOVE THEM ALL and have the urge to wallpaper a room with them. I’m not gonna… but the urge is there.
So how did you decide how many pictures to put out on display in the living areas? How many is too many?

How about you start with one big one and go from there.

Im glad that you love so many of them! I’m not married yet, but would love to know how many pictures other bees displayed.

@howtobeawife: I have a free shutterfly photobook offer I have to use by the end of this month and I have no idea how I’m gonna pick out which pics to use cause I love so many of them.
Considering all the threads you see about poor women hating their photos sounds like it is a great problem we have
LIke the other bee said, find your absolute fave and get a very large reprint of that one…and go from there..

What about investing in a larger LCD frame that rotates images? Then you can have them flipping through all the time without taking over your house :-). Would be cheaper than a ton of high end prints, too.

Shutterfly and Walgreens make these really nice collage prints where you have a lot of photos in one 4×6, 5×7, 8×10 and so on. I did one 5×7 for my desk at work and a 8×10 for our house because I couldnt pick just one photo lol
We also have another 8×10 with a 11×20 mat around it that everyone signed at our at home reception a few weeks after the wedding.
I also am going to do some wrapped canvas photos of our flowers, so its still wedding but not just us.
I feel your pain tho, I love ALLLL our wedding photos and could really get out of control if I don’t contain myself lol

I got a free photobook offer from Shutterfly, as well. You could sign up to receive offers, and sooner or later they might provide an offer for a free photobook.
I haven’t gotten my pictures back yet, but I have over 1000 (my photographer is letting me have all of the pictures from that day, plus the boudoir and bridal portraits with my DH) So, I feel your pain. I’ll start with my photobook, then go from there on what should be framed on the walls.

I also vote for the digital photoframe. You can frame a few (think 3-4) of your favorite ones and then let the rest rotate through digitally.
This “problem” just means that you had an AWESOME photographer!!

@JKaitlin: Yeah and I’m also wanting to eventually do a couple of shadowboxes as well. I’m already looking at some ugly framed pictures that my husband has on one of our living room walls and they will be the first sacrificed for the space for all the wedding stuff, lol. We currently rent the house we are in now so we were not too worried about what we hung on the walls….we both just hate bare walls.
