    I’m doing an 8×10 but nothing bigger.  We had a photo frame (mat) guestbook and I can’t wait to hang it!

    Nope! Not a big fan of big pictures of me/us either. We have a canvas in our bedroom from our wedding, but you can’t see our faces in it 🙂 

    I’m more open to it now that it’s been a few years since the wedding, but definitely right after the wedding I was REALLY not into having wedidng pics around the house on display.

    I only have one picture of us in the house, framed. I’m not the kind to have a framed pic at work either. I’d rather just keep the pictures for the two of us than share with others. But I tend to be a private person. Certainly don’t need any nosiness at work!

    I love to have pictures of us around the house, but they are mostly framed snapshots.  I do have a few professional photos framed, but nothing larger than 5*7 of just Fiance and I.  I have been torn about this.  If we do, it will be an artistic shot, not a formal posed shot.  And I will have to be in LOVE with the way we look in it.  I will definetely frame tons of shots I love in smaller sizes and have them all around.  And am also thinking of getting a nice digital frame that is just for our wedding photos.

    We get a canvas as part of our photography package, so we’ll probably display that. I’ve thought about displaying one of our engagement photoes, but I’m still undecided.

    Well what we are hanging is not exactly a wedding pic. We plan on taking engagement pics and putting that in a large frame, with a white poster board behind the pic. Then at the wedding, as our guests arrive, they will be able to sign and/or give advice, or congratulations around our picture on the poster board.

    After the wedding we’ll put it all together and we can then hang our (guestbook) on our wall. My Fiance didnt want a regular guestbook. He didnt want our family and friends write us special messages and then have the book collect dust on a shelf.

    As too our actual wedding photos, Im not sure. I think our hanging (guestbook) is enough for the walls. We will probably put our wedding pic on a shelf or something.

    No we wont in the living room. I think its fine in the bedroom or a hallway or something. I have a friend that has an entire wall in her living room devoted to her and her BF’s pictures. *gag*. I know it’s their house, but seriously 2 or 3 would have sufficed haha.

    We have 3 wedding photos in our living room, but they are not prominently displayed. We have two on two different side tables that are 5×7 and then another 4×6 on a shelf on our entertainment center. Eventually I’d like to do a gallery wall and have a couple photos (no larger than 8×10) interspersed with other framed prints and photos.

    We went to a friends’ house and they had an entire wall with huge framed photos from their wedding – both couple photos and individual photos. It just seemed like a little much to me!

    I totally don’t like having big pictures of us up either! I don’t like my face being….all up in my face!

    We have a big 30×20 inch wrap canvas print that I won in a giveaway, but I still have no idea where to hang it. It weirds me out to be looking at myself all the time!

    I love photos, but I feel weird hanging a big one in a main part of our home. I think if I did a wall collage, I ‘d add one.

    We have an 11×17, but it’s in a private part of the house and it’s mostly landscape.
