    I personally don’t think it’s rude at all!

    It’s not at all rude. In fact most photographers supply a set of web-formatted images precisely for this purpose and since you can’t invite everyone to a wedding, it’s really not worth worrying about this aspect. Just make sure you don’t crop images to remove any of your photographer’s watermarks though. That IS rude!

    @CityBearBride:  There are lots of things in life where people were not present or invited to attend, but it doesn’t mean they should/would be offended about seeing photos and “sharing the moment” vicariously through them. 

    Post away!

    I didn’t post much about my wedding when I was engaged, but I certainly did post some wedding pictures. Not a crazy amount, I think I have about 100 up out of the 4,000 that we received. I am friends with about 400 people on Facebook. I certainly do know every single person on my friends list, but some are childhood friends from elementary/middle school, some are friends of my sister who are really close to her but not close enough to me to be invited, etc. I think it’s absolutely fine to do this.

    Depends on who your friends are.  I have an ex on FB who has dozens of ex-girlfriends, and he didn’t post any from his wedding.  Another friend from college posted a few and I was thrilled to see them, as we hadn’t kept in touch.  Then it seems every other person on Zynga poker either has their wedding photo or baby on their avatar.  I will probably redirect inquiries to the photographer’s website myself.

    My thoughts on facebook – if I don’t want to see it I don’t post it.  Some of my friends drive me crazy posting 100 pics a day of their kid.  Yes, he’s cute but I don’t need to see that many pictures so I just don’t look at them (and I have it set so her pictures don’t show in my news feed).  If people don’t want to see your wedding photos they don’t have to look.


    I’m doing the same, I’m not posting planning info (as much as I want to sometimes) and I haven’t posted anything other than the fact we’re engaged – my photog posted our engagements photos and I was tagged so those appear.  I will post my wedding pictures, I will post a lot of wedding pictures.  I post a lot of pictures in general.


    I say post away (and it sounds like you’ve edited so there won’t be several of almost the exact same shot)

    @CityBearBride: I say post away! People who want to see them will open the album. People who don’t care will skip over the post. 

    I’m doing my pictures in waves – pre-ceremony, ceremony, and reception. I’ll probably have between 100-200. My wedding was extremely detail-oriented, so there’s a lot of different stuff to post, and a lot I want to share.

    A lot of my Facebook friends were invited to my wedding, and I not only want to share pictures of myself, but pictures of my guests. I have yet to go to a wedding where the bride and groom share anything other than formals on Facebook. I want to see if their photographer caught any of me cutting loose on the dancefloor!

    I think it’s totally fine. They are going to know you got married, and will probably be interested in the pictures.

    Girl, go POSTAL. No but seriously, post as many as you want. I did! I had maybe 50 FB friends/family that came to my wedding, so I had a tag-a-thon, post-a-thon. People loved it! Both my wedding guests,and the people who weren’t able to make it to my DW.
