    What could be more private than in your own home? We will have a couple photos framed on our walls from the wedding…but likely not kissing pictures or anything overtly romantic like that. 

    Maybe you’d feel more comfortable displaying photos in your bedroom?

    We have two large canvas prints in our bedroom and a couple frames photos on bookshelves in my husband’s office and the living room. 

    Our parents actually have our wedding pictures much more prominently displayed in thier homes. My parents have two large canvas prints in thier living room. While my in-laws practically have a shrine to our wedding right under thier TV – seriously it’s like maybe 4-5 framed photos and the photo book we gifted them on table under the TV they mounted on the wall. You can’t look at the TV without seeing them. It’s a little weird but they never have people over so I don’t really care.

    i chose the more the merrier but the reality is it’s somewhere between 1 and 2.  I think some are fine–I grew up with my parents wedding photos in the house and I loved looking at them.  But I went a littel crazy after the wedding/engagement shoots and put way too many up.  Had to take half back down, it was creepy. 😛

    • Wedding: December 2016

    Our house is currently under renovation, but once it’s finished I plan to put some of our wedding photos up (we got married back in December). We have a photo canvas from our engagement session on display in our bedroom – it’s not of the ring or anything, just of us. I plan to hang a canvas from our wedding in our dining room (there’s a big blank wall just begging for some artwork) and will probably frame another couple of photos to put up. There’s a really nice one of us and our whole bridal party that I’d like to put up somewhere. Darling Husband has mentioned he’d like a photo for his desk at work; I probably won’t take one to work, no one really puts personal things out lol.

    alwayssleepy :  to be fair, part of the reason I consider my home to be private is because I don’t invite guests over. I’ll come to your house or meet you out or go on a girls trip…but hardly anyone has been to my house. I wonder if my friends think I’m a secret hoarder or something. Lol

    I totally think hanging as many photos of your wedding and maybe one collage of your proposal/engagement shoot is normal. 

    You will slowly fill it up with pictures of future children (if you decide to have kids of course) and other family members. And that is what makes your home personal. 

    Keep your memories on display!

    I find it odd to consider your own home not being your priate space. I would actually find it a little strange if I walked into a home and there were no personal photos up.

    We really cherish our photos/memories, and display them all over our home. We’ve got 1 engagement photos up, and maybe 3 wedding photos up. The rest are photos of us and our family/friends throughout the years.

    One of my friends has a gallery wall of her wedding photos +4 more hanging in places that are visible from the room with the gallery wall. I think that’s a little excessive. 

    We do have pictures of us (maybe 4 or 5) scattered around our house as well as pictures of family. I expect that we will add wedding photos to those when the time comes.

    We have a photo wall by the stairs where company doesn’t really go. It’s all different photos from over the years. I’m not into looking at myself but I will add a wedding photo. Like you I will probably pick one with a lot going on.

    • Wedding: April 2017

    We’re getting married next month and plan on putting a few wedding photos out for display.  We have 2 engagment pictures out and plan on keeping those out because we love them.  One is on a table that is in our foyer and the other is on an end table in the family room.  We also have a couple in our bedroom.

    A friend of mine has a huge canvas of her and her husband from their wedding above their fireplace.  I don’t plan on doing anything like that but to each their own.

    My parents and my FI’s parents also are really into photos and have a ton displayed in their homes and I bet they’ll wind up having more up than us!

    Honestly no one ever comes in our flat and if they do its like once a year so theres no reason to hide them. We have as many photos of us as we like.
