Allyg:  I’d only think it was vain if you had pictures up absolutely everywher, having some in one or two places isn’t a big deal.

I hope not cause we’re displaying pics of ourselves on televisions at the reception venue lmao

Not at all.  It’s your wedding.  It’s a celebration of your relationship.  That and we used picture frames as our take numbers and had pictures of us over the last 10 years as part of the table numbers.

Allyg:  We’re going to have pictures of us lining the aisle for the ceremony and randomly at our reception. I think it’s cute!

Allyg:  Nope!  Several weddings I’ve gone to have done this.   I went to one reception (they had a destination wedding) and they had like a huge slideshow (like projected onto a wall type) of just pictures of them, the reception was 2 hours and not one of those photos repeated… So having two photos of you and your FH is definitely not vain.

Pics of you two together and your kids would be totally fine. And guests will love seeing them.

I’ve been to a wedding where the couple had pictures of themselves (separately/before they met) as babies/kids/teens/young adults and I thought it was odd. But pics that show your relationship are not odd or vain at all.

It’s your wedding, you have every right to put up pictures of yourselves.

Not at all.  I think it is normal to display your pictures.

I’ve been to weddings that have done this and I have enjoyed looking at the pictures of from when they were kids.  One bride also included more recent pictures, like of our college friend group.  It was fun reminiscing and getting to see how everyone’s changed.

I think its definitely acceptable at your own wedding as long as you dont go overboard. – No proffessional shots of just you semi naked type thing haha. Nice ones of you and your husband and children will go down well. People love to look through and not everyone will have seen them.

Allyg:  We had a signing frame instead of a guestbook, with a photo from our pre-wedding shoot in it.

We also had a slideshow in the cinema; it was pictures from throughout our relationship, and everyone loved it as we also included photos of us with friends and family so everyone had a good laugh seeing how they looked/dressed 8/9 years ago.

I don’t see an issue with it provided it isn’t too OTT as, as another poster said, a wedding does celebrate your relationship after all.

Allyg:  well the wedding is a celebration of love between the two of you so yoy should not feel that having pictures up of yourselves is vain! 

We had a picture guestbook and we also did a slideshow of ourselves through the years since we have been tpgether so long
