    I only made one print from my e-pics. They are not really something I would want to display too many of.

    The wedding pics on the other hand…LOL! I went overboard.

    4×6 for proofing or basic albums

    5×7 or even 8×10 for tables or shelves

    11×14+ for wall portraits

    You can get one of those frames with four 4×6 slots to show a sequence of some sort in your engagement pics, maybe do that if you want to do something with the 4×6’s.  Also, don’t forget about the parents, they will most likely want prints (5×7+)

    You can also get mats to enlarge 4x6s. I think it just depends on the space where you want to display them and how much room you have.

    I prefer 5x7s framed alone  but I also like the look of smaller photos all collaged together on a wall of frames!

    We picked only 3-4 photos to enlarge. That was all.

    The rest (35 pictures) we made into a photo book through Adoramapix. We figured that printing all of our epics and putting them around the house was a bit excessive. Instead, the photo book will be used as our guest book, our guests will sign it, and we can look at it whenever we want as a momento!
