    @jg780806:  Can there be an under 50 option?  I’d say no more than 10, seriously people aren’t really going to look through page after page of photos.

    Post what you want– seriously. I don’t get the whole ” Facebook isn’t for personal stuff” crowd, then WTH is it for? Candy Crush? lol.

    It’s your page and if people don’t like it, they can “unfollow” and for those that do like it, they’ll appreciate it! Also, since I have been in what seems like 34847 weddings, I like to see pictures of weddings I was in on Facebook. If I spent a ton of money being a bridesmaid, I want to see the day again ( and again, and again) if I want to!

    @renwoman:  i always do. and it seems like TONS of my facebook friends have looked through my albums, judging by the likes/comments i’m getting. it’s definitely easy for people to avoid them if they choose to, but some people love seeing wedding photos, myself included!

    Umm…as many as you want? I tend to fall in the minority when it comes to all things wedding and Facebook related. I am incredibly curious and nosy, so if you post an album of your wedding, sure as shit I will be clicking through until the end.

    If you posted five or five thousand photos to an album, it usually just comes up a quick blurb in my feed regardless. I actually don’t know the cutoff per albums now, as I haven’t created one in like three years, it isn’t as though every single wedding photo will be published individually, turning the feeds of your friends into a forced viewing. Posting your photos does not force anyone to actually view them, and if they choose to do so and get annoyed, well shame on them. It really depends if you care that someone out there is going to roll their eyes at the number of your photos.

    If it makes you uncomfortable, make the album private and only invite certain people to view it. I’ve done that with a ton of bachelorette party photos.

    I don’t even understand some of these responses! As long as you do them in an album, it’s going to “clog up” a news feed exactly as much as 1 photo, so what does it matter how many you post?! Most of my friends have posted hundreds and hundreds of pics, and I am always bummed when people only post like 10. Like, I want to see the whole day! And if people don’t want to look at them, they won’t click on the album. It’s not like people are forcing their album to magically open up and display 500 photos. Sheesh.

    I’ll probably post about 75-100, and that’s just because we had a small wedding. If I had a bunch of guest photos, I’m sure I’d post way more.

    I plan to post no more than 10. Friends will always post their own too, and tag. I really don’t want to innundate my non-invited friends.

    I vote <50 photos. Honestly, I think it looks a little vain when you start posting more photos than that. And I really never make it through more than 30-40 wedding photos when our married friends post them.

    I couldn’t vote because I’m not going to look through more than about 5 of your wedding photos. 50 is far too many.

    @jg780806:  Post as many as you want, really.

    I do not for the life of me understand those that are bothered by what people post. If say I thought you were going over board it is beyond simple to not look or keep scrolling. Not all the photos are shown so if I don’t want to peruse your album then I won’t.

    We posted hundreds and the main reason is that we have family near and far that wanted to see them. I know of no better way to share life’s events to those that are not geographically nearby than to share on FB.

    Were all your FB friends invited to the wedding?  No?  Zero.

    I intend to make an album with just the highlights, and then another (or more, seeing the photo limit per album is like 200 pics…) for those who want to see more.

     

    It’s a free world- post away!

     

    People who would complain that you’ve posted too many wedding pics on your profile are just jealous 😀

    @jg780806:  You don’t have a poll option less than 50… I clicked the link thinking like “20ish?”

    @jg780806:  Didn’t post any….then again I didn’t post about our engagement or wedding so I guess I’m just not a FB user….though I do have an account it rarely gets used.

    @weddingmaven:  why?  Does everyone on earth have to be offended by everything all of the time?  I wasn’t invited to a friends wedding….so I’m automatically going to be upset if i see five wedding pics?
