Got married a week ago — still can’t believe that haha!! — aaand my photographer sent some beautiful preview photos over. She sent about 30 as like sneak peek pics and she posted one herself on her social that I was ok with.
Ill get the rest in about a month or so.
I posted a couple recently because I loved them and am wondering if I should post favorites of the ones she sent already now… or wait until I get eveyrhhting to pick and choose from to post.
Granted we are in the age of social media so like the day after the wedding a ton of family posted their own photos and videos so it’s not like it’s a secret what my wedding looked like. However I got the notion from some online advice pieces that people wait a bit to avoid upsetting people who didn’t get invited?
To me it seems like it’s all out there already … and I’m debating what to post and when. I don’t know if it matters at all bc wedding is over and these professional shots are awesome!

I know nothing about proper etiquette but as far as I’m concerned the sooner the better. Whether or not I was invited I love looking at friends’ wedding photos on fb!

Just post them if you want. I don’t think there’s any etiquette. Personally I’m excited to see photos of friends’ weddings ASAP when I couldn’t make it to the wedding.

I don’t think anybody cares as much as you. So you do you boo.

I don’t think it matters. Post them when you want!
Anyone who gets upset or offended should probably delete thier social media and be a little less self-involved. I mean, who sees someone else’s wedding pictures on Facebook and gets pissed they weren’t invited? Seems really immature.

- Wedding: July 2017 - The Lodge at Little Seneca Creek
For my engagement photo session, I just shared my photographer’s sneak peak post as soon as it was up, and then I’ve been gradually sharing other pictures from the session I liked through cover/profile pictures. I know as soon as our wedding pictures are posted, I’ll be sharing those too!

I posted some of my sneak peeks the next day! I couldn’t help it lol. I love looking through wedding pics even of weddings I wasn’t invited to!

namsayin : Yep. This.
Post them if you want, hide them away… It doesn’t matter. There is no obligation to share, just as there is no limit on where or when you can. Do what makes you happy.

sunshadebride : Etiquette doesn’t put a time limit on having the common sense to avoid offending people who were not invited to your wedding or rubbing it into their faces. We were supposed to have learned that rule in kindergarten, but in this day and age of social media, it’s become a rare, seemingly outdated sentiment.
Personally, I’d post a couple of photos of you as a bride and as a married couple, but none of the reception or anything that shows who was invited.

Share your favorites! I will say a girl on Facebook posted like 10 wedding photos a day for the past month and I have unfollowed her. But she was annoying before that soooo maybe I just needed a reason.

It is completely up to you! I say post the ones you absolutely love or any you want! It’s all about you two. I always love to see pictures of weddings so I say go for it!
