I have one in our room and a small one on the mantle. I like them, but there are so many other aspects of our life together, the wedding was just the beginning. Mostly it’s pics of us, our daughter and the places we’ve been.

I have three on the mantle, three in a grouping together on the wall, one with our photomat that isn’t up right now, and I’m going to get a canvas done of another one.

We don’t do pictures a lot and I think of them as artwork too.

i havent’t thought about this too much.  Darling Husband and I are still completing our grad school degrees and have no idea where we are going to settle down yet.  FOr the next two years, we know where we will be, so I think i will definitely get at least one picture blown up and framed. but that’s all for now.  maybe that will be all we ever display.  since reading this post (like one minute ago), i got the idea to maybe get one of those frames where you can put a collage of pics and i would choose a mix of our wedding and TTD pics in there. and honeymoon – the whole Jamaica trip would be nice to put on display!  hmmmmm

@pinkpetal: are you planning to get an album?  i will be getting a coffee table book album with about 80 pics in there.  So when i have visitors, they will see it out in the open and can hopefully feel free to pick it up and flip thru it!

@pinkpetal: I got a Groupon for Picture It On Canvas to get a 16×20 for $39.  I think I saw one on there right now for the same thing, let me look for it.

Edit: Here it is!

@pinkpetal: my photographer can do one for me and she used visionart.com  they look pretty cool. its actually a book, not pics printed inserted, but the pages are the pics. good, thick quality paper.  she charges $500 for it, which apparently is a good price from what people told me on here.  i also want to look into shutterfly and adoramapix – have no idea how those things work, but people keep mentioning it!

@pinkpetal: Adorable picture!

My photographer made a photobook of our pictures too.  I don’t want to leave it out for people to touch it though!

We’re getting 4 large prints gifted to us by our photographer! They’ll go in our living room above our couch…. It’s kind of a large wall so it works out perfect!.. Especially since I haven’t found a large pic that I felt was worth 100 bucks. lol

As for others… I’m not sure yet. I get shutterfly coupons all the time so maybe I’ll make a photobook… idk.. last time I tried it was taking FOREVER and I gave up. lol

I’m all about pictures, of all parts of our lives. Right now, our frames are filled with lots of wedding photos, but I’ll swap them out as other exciting things happen in our lives. Right now, we have these, plus a few others, in various places in our house:

This separates our living room and dining room ( I take the photos down for holidays, and put up other displays)

I also have these two sets of large collages, one in the dining/kitchen, and one going down our large staircase to the basement.They have some wedding pictures, some pics from our honeymoon/other vacations, various photos of our friends at football games/parties etc, grad pics of our siblings etc

 

And then I have a few small 4×6 or 5×7’s on our dresser. In my mind, art is beautiful, but memories are even better. Evertime I walk past these photos, they remind me of that day/person, and it makes me smile. So, it may be excessive, but their mine, and its our house, and i’m happy with them. 🙂

I am just going to toss a few up on the dining room wall with the rest of our family pics.
