DH and I both put up a guest photo the day after our wedding at the same time we changed our marital status on facebook. Then once we were blogged, we put a pro pic as our profile pics. So basically for the last 2 months, i had have a wedding pic as my facebook profile pic.
Since we are doing our at home reception in August, i have refrained from posting a full album of wedding pics until after we show them at the AHR. But for fun, since today is our 2 month anniversary, we each put a different pro pic up as our profile pic – so for friends and family who were not at our wedding, this is only the second pro wedding pic they have seen. I figure i will do that on each monthly anniversary until august.
Just wondering – am i totally weird? how long did you leave your wedding pic as your facebook profile pic? (or how long do you think you will?)

I think that’s a cool idea!! Especially since you still have a wedding event coming up. I left an engagement photo up for a few months. I’m sure I’ll put up some wedding pics as well! But I don’t think I’ll leave it up for months and months on end…

I left mine up for about 6 months, but DH’s is still a picture from our wedding 8 months ago. I have some friends who were married last summer who still have wedding pictures as their profile pics. I say leave it up as long as you want.

My profile pic is still a wedding picture. We don’t do pictures very often.

I think I had one for about 5-6 months then I changed it to something new that came up. Then for mother’s day one of those things went around about posting a pic of you and your mom, so I posted one of her doing up my dress, and then today one of me and my dad. Now our anniversary is next month, so I’ll probably post a picture from our trip to Europe that we just got back from for the next little while, and then put it back up for the anniversary, and then maybe that will be the end of the wedding-ness.

You aren’t wierd at all! We’ve been married a year and I still post wedding pics from time to time. For example, I put a pic of my Dad walking me down the aisle as my profile pic for the last few days in celebration of Father’s Day. No worries…

I think months and months is totally fine. However I have a couple of friends (one who got married more than a year ago and one that got married 3 years ago) who still have wedding pictures as their profile pictures. I think that might be a little too long….

We’ve been married almost a year and I still have a picture of the two of us as my profile picture! It’s a good picture – it’s not too often that we get professional pictures of us done. Oh, and it’s just of our faces. It would be hard to tell it was a wedding picture unless you looked REALLY closely.

My general thought is that…until I have a reason to change it, like a holiday picture or whatever. Months is fine, but I think having it up a LONG time is kind of weird. I have a friend who has had hers up for years and it’s kind of like “You don’t even look like that now.” Lol

i have friends on my list that have had their wedding pics as their main pic for 3 years now… i personally think that’s a bit much. but i see nothing wrong with a year or less.

i know what you mean. i understand the excitement in posting a wedding pic- but sometimes when i see a wedding picture posted for a loooooong time (meaning same wedding picture posted FOREVER despite being active on FB)
…i think to myself, “I GET IT, YOU’RE MARRIED!!”

I had a friend who has been married for 5 years and just recently changed it since they had a baby. I do think that 5 years is a bit long…surely you taken a more recent pic together.

thanks for the feedback everyone! looks like since i am only at 2 months, i am still pretty normal! i imagine when i finish my internship in 2 weeks i will put a pic of me and my friends i am leaving behind at our going away party, but once i get to 3 month anniversary, i am sure there will be a wedding pic back up!! i
its true what you are all saying, these are like the only pro pics i ever had done with DH! ..
lol, i guess that depends when i actually get pregnant! i am thinking i need to finish school first, get a job, save some money…..
