    I like short captions and lots of pictures! If there are really long stories, I tend to skim over unless I really like that particular bee or have some vested interest in their story.

    I want to see a ceremony pic, a reception venue pic, cake and the big moments that show emotion.  I don’t like when people post all the little close up details, here’s a flower, here’s a piece of pie, here are 10 pictures of every angle of our rings, ect.

    And no captions whatsoever.  I never read recap captions.

    @Sunnyday278:  I echo the short paragraphs. We just really want to see pics. The more the merrier. If you write a lot, I’m just going to skip to the pics anyways. 🙂

    The more photos the better!

    I like captions if it describes something interesting. I know our weddings are ALL interesting to ourselves, but I like to hear about DIY / funny stories / etc more so than just a play-by-play of regular wedding events.

    (Sigh… 2 more weeks for my pics.)

    I like short captions.  If there are some helpful details such as explaining when in the day something was used, meaning behind a detail.  But the long personal stories I tend to skim or skip.  I read recaps more for inspiration and ideas.

    Unless the wedding story is really epic, I don’t really read the long essay ones.  A short intro and captions for any pictures that need explanation is fine with me.  I like to see a lot of the usual pics – photos of the dress, the ceremony, venues, and first look.  I don’t need to see every single detail, but I really love seeing the details that make the wedding unique and interesting.  I love creative decor, fun color schemes, awesome cakes/desserts, DIY ideas, etc…mainly things that you won’t see in every wedding.

    I like lots of photos… but unless I actually know the person, I don’t really care about photos of the BMs, groomsmen etc… it’s just a bunch of people I don’t know.

    I like seeing photos of the venue if it’s interesting, bouquet, rings, the lovely bride of course.

    Unless the ceremony was in a spectacular location, I’d prefer to see only a few photos… I prefer the more fun photos to the emotional ones.

    Lots of pictures. I like to see the little added “extra” details.

    LOL I posted the longest recap ever, so I’m not really one to judge =) 

    But I figure that anyone who wants to only look at pictures can just skip the paragraphs.

    Lots of photos without as much text, but a few small fun captions are totally fine. The more photos the merrier though!

    I love tons of photos and captions. A lot of text and few pictures can get a little TL;DR to me. I always skip to the pictures, and usually go back for the text.
