    I would say 15 to 20. Even 50 seems like a lot.

    I think 10-20 is what most people want to see.  Your very closest friends and family will want to see more in person.  Many people I know (including myself) will skip looking at the pictures all together if there are over 20 or so.

    I think 10- 15 is appropriate……

    Way less than 50…pick your best 10-15 max and call it a day IMO.

    I just made sure not to post duplicates and I only posted pictures with people in them. Beyond that I didn’t set a limit- I’m not forcing anyone to look through them so I don’t think it’s a big deal if I post a lot.

    I don’t think I’m going to post more than 10. I don’t like the idea of sharing such an intimate and private part of my life with aquaintances, the whole of my friends list wasn’t invited for a reason.

    With that being said, to each their own. I don’t post too many pictures of myself/ my life to begin with.. so posting 100s of wedding photos would be out of character. I didn’t even post about getting engaged, my Fiance did and we share a lot of the same friends..

    I’m going to post as many as I want – in ONE album. We have overseas family who aren’t going to make the wedding.  If someone doesn’t care, they can just view the 5 preview pics from the album as they scroll past without clicking on it. I don’t see how it hurts anyone as long as you aren’t doing that obnoxious thing where you post one picture at a time.

    I wouldn’t (and didn’t) unleash hundreds of wedding pictures onto my Facebook account. Even the best of friends can only tolerate so many clogging up their news feed and of course, Facebook compresses the hell out of pictures so they never reproduce in as high a quality. However, I have my own website so I sent a gallery link to everyone I knew WOULD want to see the full series.

    Only you know the toleration limit of the people connected to you on Facebook. If you only have a limited number of good friends and family then you can almost certainly get away with more pictures. You can also limit who can view your album by not making it public but by customising who gets to see them. Which is probably a better alternative if you really must put hundreds of pictures up.

    I love wedding pictures!  Post as many as you want, as long as they are in an album – definitely wouldn’t want to see each picture posted individually.

    I didn’t vote in the poll. I didn’t like the options. 

    I don’t think there is a perfect amount of photos. I think one should simply upload however many they want to, and the people looking at the pictures can decide when they want to stop looking. 

    I love looking at wedding photos, so there are never too many pictures for me.

    Less than 50! But there wasn’t an option for that, so I voted 50.

    As long as you post all in an album and don’t do multiple shots of the same-ish thing. I would aim for around 50 or so. Personally, when i see a wedding on FB, now i totally look through it for inspiration, lol. So I’m okay with the more is better philosophy. I’m always interested in what kinds of weddings other people have, what kind of venue, what their decor and their wedding dress looked like.

    As long as it is in one album, I don’t care.  I had a second cousin post a new album every week for two months, each with like 200 pictures.  The first were all of the getting ready pictures, then the first look, and so on.  That was annoying.  But if they are in one album that only shows up in my newsfeed once, doesnt matter if it is ten or 200, just put them together and don’t keep making small changes to bump your album up in my newsfeed!

    No more than 10 for a general social circle. More than that and it seems better to set the album’s privacy settings to have only your nearest and dearest see it.
