I tend to agree if someone has gone on-and-on about all these things and promised to post pics I’m kind of curious, it’s different if they’ve never promised to post pics (as some people prefer to remain anonymous).

However it could be that they haven’t gotten pics from their photographer yet. Chances are the bride and groom are not taking a lot of pics so they’re having to rely on family members/photogs to actually send them pics.

I’m sure you’ve seen some horror stories about photogs that never deliever. I’d say cut them some slack, but of course we all love pictures!

I’m pretty active and I haven’t posted pics yet…I believe at one point I even said “I can’t wait!” when the recap board came up but still haven’t done it yet…idk, I just didn’t think it was that big of a deal…

I agree that some might be because they are waiting for pictures and maybe they forget to post them after that.  Other people never want to post pictures on here for privacy reasons.  I never posted a ton of pictures from my wedidng because I was lazy lol.

We just met with our most-likely wedding photographer this week, and I told her how important it was for us to have digital copies of the photos. She said that the printed album would take about a month I believe, but the digital copies would take a year to get back to us. Maybe she has to edit more photos for the digital version or she wants to make some profit from prints? Not sure, but anyway that may be the issue with some people.

I also love seeing the wedding photos, but if people aren’t comfortable with it because of privacy, I get it. This is a pretty active board with a lot of people! Maybe their family or fiance isn’t comfortable with it being posted, etc.

Hi Halloween! It’s so nice to see such an active member of the Hive!  I agree with you! I love seeing recaps and can’t wait to see how everything went especially if you’ve been following the Bee from Day 1!

I’ll speak from my own experience since I just got married and haven’t yet posted recaps or photos.  First, I went off on my honeymoon for a week right after the wedding. We came back and got asked to go to Vegas to see some family that was out there on vacation. We went and came back.  Now, two weeks have passed since the wedding.  It’s been another two weeks I’d say since our wedding. So I’m going on 5 weeks since the wedding. I’m on summer vacation, but I’ve been moving in, settling in, buying and decorating our home, cleaning out his stuff (I moved into Mr. Lace’s house), etc.  We just got a website with our pro pics on there, but they are just proofs and not ready for posting.  So… I’m trying to settle in and make Mr. Lace’s home feel like my home too. In addition to that, I’ve been working on the name change stuff, getting Mr. Lace’s insurance transferred over to mine, writing thank you cards…

I can’t speak for everyone, but it seems like there’s a lot to do post wedding! Or, they could just be forgetful! 🙂

Hope that helps!

I think for some they don’t end up posting photos because they aren’t thrilled with them in the end.  Also, they keep saying they can’t wait to post photos, then they realize that if they post all those photos they lose a bit of their anonymity, so that makes them change their mind.  Just my thinking anyway!

@zeynokiz: That doesn’t sound right at ALL. No way should it take a year to get those photos back to you in digital form. 3 months should be the *absolute* max!

@Halloween: Thanks for starting this thread! I posted a bunch of my photos in different threads already and still waiting to get around to doing a full photo recap; and I was wondering “What if people are getting sick of these; does anyone really care about pics of my day?” This post makes me feel so much better that there are Bees who actively look forward to these!

However ever since I posted the pics showing our faces; I no longer feel comfortable posting on some personal threads like Intimacy, which I kind of miss. Maybe this is what’s holding some people back.

@Halloween: Haha! Don’t they know we’re impatient for all the beautiful details?!

Hopefully I get a few decent ones and I promise to post them! I think it’s nice to see everything come together.

Its privacy for me- I just dont want my stuff out there. I remember being so excited when I got my pics- I may have posted that I got them too, but I didnt feel the need to put them out there. When bees post that they have their pics, Im excited for them- but understand if they dont want to share. Dont get me wrong, I LOVE looking at everyones pics though!
