- Wedding: June 2014 - DD born 2015 DS born 2017
I just got my pro pics back!! Woohoo!! My photographer did such a wonderful job and there are so many amazing pics I want to share with my fb friends! I managed to cut them down to 230 (from 1500) ready to upload to fb when my husband questioned ‘isn’t that too much?’
So, is it? Am I being attention-seeking? Would that be a normal number? I did have quite a long wedding in three locations (ceremony, reception and after party) which really adds bulk, as well as many guests having facebook accounts so I’m sure they’ll want to be tagged, also increasing the number of pics.
But am I going overboard? Help!

Post them. If people don’t want to see them then they don’t have to open the album. But I’m sure a good portion of your friends and family DO want to see them. So I say post them.

I posted quite a few. But I did post a disclaimer that I was about to bombard the world with wedding photos for the next couple hours and I apologize for being annoying 🙂

- Wedding: August 2013 - Wynn Las Vegas
I posted two hundred and something. No shame!! There were some awesome pictures of friends I got to tag, so they enjoyed that.

I voted 76 – 100.
I posted about 170. One year later, I feel like that is way too much, and I wish I got it down under 100.
A friend just posted 300 from her wedding and I didn’t make it through them all because it was was too much. After a while, it seems like overkill. ETA: I was at the wedding and in a lot of pictures, and I still found it annoying.

MrsYoshida: Waaaay fewer than 30! Lol! Clearly I’m in the minority.

Post as many as you want! I can’t say I would look at more than 40-50 but maybe some of your friends/family will.

I don’t think it matters. People have the option of signing up for Facebook, then they have the option to unfollow you if they get that annoyed. It is so stupid for people to complain about what they see on Facebook, last I checked… no one forced you to join! 🙂
So post as many as you want.

I don’t know how many I’ll post, but I LOVE when people upload a TON! In one (or two) albums though, not like.. one at a time clogging up the whole feed. I love seeing people’s wedding pictures as long as they streamline it in one go. One of my friends put up like… 300 and I LOVED IT. But she did it all at once, not dragging it out.

MrsYoshida: I posted 4 wedding albums. The prep, ceremony, wedding party pics and reception. I thought about it and I was like heck what else am I gonna do wih all these pics if not let people see them!

Whatever you fancy, personally I didnt post any (too lazy) I quite liked looking at ones other people had posted from their camera’s though.
If people dont want to look at them all, then they will just click on a few in the album then go do something else.

If you actually want other people to look at them all, I’d say under 50.
If you just want to post them for yourself and you don’t care whether other people see them, post as many as you want.

- Wedding: December 2014 - Maui
I think around 50-100 is plenty. Personally I probably won’t post any except for maybe changing my profile pic because my fiancé doesn’t really want to share wedding pictures with everyone.

I’m always disappointed that people haven’t posted MORE pictures of their wedding! So I’m sure there are people who would love to see all of those photos.
There are people who will ignore a big album though. So if you care about that, you could maybe first post a small selection of your favourites, and then post the rest.

If you post them as just a couple albums, people aren’t likely to be too bothered. They’ll look at them if they want, skip them if they don’t, and it won’t clog their news feed. The larger the album, the less likely people are to look at them all, though it will give people more opportunity to see pics of themselves and tag as they wish. It really just depends on what your objective is in posting them.
