    • Wedding: November 2012

    I just looked . . . I have 4 pictures from my wedding on my facebook page (and three were posted by my husband, with me tagged in them). I just didn’t feel the need to post all of them on there. But then I tend to be a relatively private person and don’t generally put that many pictures/posts on Facebook.

    I have friend that posted only 30 photos and have friends that create 3 – 4 album of their wedding photos.  I prefer album instead of individual photos cuz’ it will be super annoying to see their wedding all over on my newsfeed.   I don’t really look at every single of their wedding photos until I’m engaged and wanted to get idea….otherwise, I wll just scroll through it

    @jg780806:  I think a good representation of the day can be covered in about 50 photos. We didn’t post all of our photos. We posted photos of things like family, ceremony room before guests, me walking down the aisle, us at the aisle, wedding party photos (like 2), a few reception photos, and some end of the night photos with just my husband and i. that’s it. so it was enough to make others feel like they were there without oversharing.

    • Wedding: May 2013 - Pavilion overlooking golf course scenery, reception at banquet hall

    My facebook only has 6 wedding pics, just profile pics and cover photos. I never made an album, but maybe some day I will just for fun.

    I voted 50 because it sounds like plenty to me, but then I looked at my Shutterfly album I made of the wedding and I have 87 photos in it! I thought the album felt a bit shallow/rushed as I flipped through it, but of course I have more than 87 memories of the day!! So… maybe pretend I voted 100. 🙂

    Anyway, all said and done, as long as it’s all one album on my newsfeed that I have to scroll past if I’m not interested because we are not close, you could have 2000 pics for all I care – FB only shows a handful when you post the album and then it never shows up again. I’m ok with that.

    ONE BILLION.

    Only of the bride and groom – or if you include guest photos, ONLY the most unflattering ones, please. TAG EVERYONE.

    Sorry but I disagree with the masses, your FB page is YOUR page to do with as you wish. Those that don’t like it can ignore/unfriend/whatever. I personally LOVE to look at friends’ wedding photos so the more the merrier in my book. I’ll post however many I want to post and couldn’t care less if people don’t want to see them. I know that some of my friends and family DO want to see them and I want them there so I can look at them whenever I want.

    IMO think 50 should be more than sufficent to capture everything. No one cares for all the repeatitive photos. I think however if one want to share more I’d simply have a large album for family and friends only.

    I was going to say 20, too!!!  Or even less!  I really don’t care to see wedding pics, even if I was IN THE WEDDING.  Or attended.  I was there!  I don’t need to see it again!

    And if I wasn’t there, all I want to see is the wedding dress.  That’s IT, lol.

    Okay, my facebook friends must be really weird because everyone I know who has gotten married has posted huge albums, or multiple albums. And when they have a baby it is just out of control, haha. I don’t know anyone who has posted less than 50 pictures of their wedding, so the answers in this thread are alien to me.

    I posted an album of about 140 pictures. I posted all the main stuff, and then some bridal party shots, and then fun/good pictures of my guests. Those who cared looked at it and those who didn’t, didn’t. No worries.

    @jg780806:  I choose 50, but I would say 50 – 100 is ok as long as it is not like 3 pictures of you and granny and then 5 pictures of you and the bridesmaids. Variety is the spice of life!

    @jg780806:  I’m an average facebook poster (maybe even less so.) I post a status update about once a week and dont have very many photo albums.  However, once I got our wedding photos, I couldnt just choose a select few to share – they were so amazing (IMO). 

    We had a destination wedding, so there were quite a few family and friends that were not able to attend our wedding.  I shared about 150 pictures on fb with the disclaimer: “if you’re not tired of looking at wedding photos yet…” and I got a lot of positive feedback from loved ones.  Post as many as you would like… people should be loving and supportive.  If they dont want to see that many wedding pics, dont click on the link.

    i hate when people only post a few cuz i genuinely love seeing other people’s wedding photos. but a lot of you might have hated me because i posted about 200-250 probably. i wasn’t going to, i posted the link to our website but a ton of my friends were like YOU MUST so that we can be tagged, etc etc. so i did. and a lot of people seem to be looking at them and enjoying them. maybe more people are annoyed by them…. they can delete me cuz it’s the one and only time i have posted anything wedding related on my fbook.
