Picking pictures for our album is proving very difficult!!!
I was wondering, did you put pictures of your guests in your album? We have all of these wonderful photos of our reception with our guests laughing and having a great time, but I’m not sure if we should include them. I need to pick 50 pictures and I already have 60, without these included.
What do you think?

How many wedding photos total did you get? We ended up picking a few from the reception for our first album from the photographer.
But when we get all our photos back, I made them all go into 5 albums. But that was just me.. and we only had like 500 pro photos. But I know a lot of people get a ton more so in that case… I would not have put them in albums…..I think.

Sure! If they are good quality and will blend seamlessly with the other photos in the album, and you want them in there, go for it.

Yes, include them! I think it is a bit odd to just have a huge album of only two people.

I’ve seen a lot of pro albums where they make one page of guest photos but they’re all really small so you get several pics of your guests without taking up room. Our photog didn’t take any guest pictures but otherwise yes, I would include a few – especially if it’s aunts/uncles/cousins and such. They are more likely to see the album than your Dad’s old co-worker and would probably love to see themselves in the album.

Yes, you should include them if you want to. If you have too many photos for one album, you could always make more than one album of wedding photos. Maybe you can do one album for the ceremony and one for the reception? I am making a digital photo album on shutterfly.com of our wedding pics and I plan to do a few pages with the guests only on them. Also, you can add more pages to digital photo books as needed.

Thanks for the feedback everyone!! There are just too many photos to choose from and I’ve already been pretty ruthless. Our photographer is doing our album and asked me to choose around 50 photos. Ack!!!! I’ll try to see if I can cut any more…

@2bMrsG: That is what I did with ours on shutterfly! I had ceremony, reception, family/group photos, bride and groom albums basically! Its great. I even ended up making a great book of our honeymoon on there. I’m basically addicted to shutterfly now 🙂
