    I have a friend who uploaded all of them. She has like 4+ albums for her wedding. It was a little much even though the pictures were beautiful. She’s one of the sweetest people though and I love her so it wasn’t as annoying as it would have been if she were someone else.

    I posted 65. I tried to put up pictures of the whole day without being redundant.

    We posted all of them including ones given to us by friends and family. I have a lot of friends and family who live out of the country or in other states who weren’t able to come to the wedding, and they loved being able to see photos from the day. I also only have about 100 Facebook friends, so it’s not a massive pool of people who are seeing the pics.

    I think 50-100, but I totally love creeping people’s wedding photos soooo…. 😉 aha

    I put about 50 of our engagement pictures so I’ll definitely be putting closer to 100 of our wedding.

    @LeonardLady:  “People don’t care.”

    I’m sorry your experiences in life have left you feeling like others don’t care that the OP got married.  Perhaps some of her friends and family really would like to see some photos.  Maybe not 500 but what’s wrong with 50 or 100?

    OP – did people come to your wedding?  If so, people care.  Post what you feel comfortable with.  People can choose to either click on the album or not.

    I have less then 10 pictures on FB. There’s no poll option for that.

    Are you joking?  I think I posted 12.  50 is even pushing it in my opinion.

    @red_rose:  +1!

    I was going to say like 15. I can’t imagine scrolling through more than 20 pictures. I’d NEVER look at 100 pics! I’d also think “wow overkill much?” The people that want to see every single photo, you should be able to show them in person or make one of those shutterfly or whatever accounts that they can specifically visit.

    @FleeSircus:   It is one thing to announce that you are married, but  it is just rude and unseemly  to flaunt the details of a party to which others are or were not invited. While a wedding portrait of the two of you or information  in the style of a wedding announcement is probably OK, 50+ photos, including pictures of your  other invited  guests, party shots etc. is not.  

    Didn’t we all learn this in kindergarten?

    I’d say about 25-40. I really wouldn’t go over 40 personally.

    I also didn’t vote in the poll because I think 50 is way too many.

    I don’t plan on posting *any* photos of my wedding on Facebook, but I honestly cannot imagine posting more than about 5 pics.  Maybe a couple of me and my Fiance and a few with our parents or close friends.

    @FleeSircus:  I like how you call me out when almost everyone here said 50 is way too many. Most people really don’t care enough to look through hundreds of photos. Maybe 10-15, but hundreds? I feel like people post pictures more for themselves, not because others really want to see them.

    I posted all of mine becuase I have famiky that could not be there. They uploaded into one album so it did not blow up the news feed.

    I’ll just use a photo or two of mine for ‘We got married/I’m a Mrs now!’ posts, and then as my cover and profile photos probably over the next few months. I doubt I’ll post more than a dozen total.

    I voted 100 in the poll. But…

    – I LOVE looking at friends and family’s wedding photos! I love it when I’m there and I can relive the awesomeness. I love it even more when I can’t make it and I get to see a glimpse of the special day. My Future Sister-In-Law just posted an album of 200 photos and it didn’t feel excessive to me at all. I flipped through as I pleased — people don’t have to look at them if they don’t want to!

    But I also think it’s important to note a few things:

    – First, I keep my friends list small. If I wouldn’t share photos, glimpses of my life with you in REAL life, I won’t digitally either. If we don’t hang out/talk at least twice a year, you’re off the list — no pictures for you. I have about 150 friends on facebook and 75% are on limited settings

    – I LOVE photos. That’s pretty much all I use facebook for — as a way to share photos of recent adventures with friends and family

    – The majority of my friends/family live 1000+ miles away. They can’t be involved in all of my adventures. Our wedding will be family only Destination Wedding. 15 people. That’s it.
