radgardner :  when creating our professional album we were limited to 50 images. Darling Husband and I chose how many pictures from each category we wanted: Details, Getting ready, Wedding party, Just us, ceremony, toasts/dances, party. Then I went through and selected the best shots from each category.

What helped was that I had pretty much all the photos I liked printed a Walgreens to make a very informal album of everything. I was then able to select from there. Good luck!

first time round, the pics we used less of, and looked at the least in the years after, were the getting ready shots.  This time we didn’t bother to get any at all, except for a couple of ‘before’ shots of the two venues.  Noone really needs to look back on pics of a bunch of women putting on makeup, lol.  

We also haven’t used pictures of every single toast or gift being handed over, or different versions of what is essentially the same picture – eg. there’s only one formal pic of just the two of us in our whole album, and one of each family group.  The majority of the pics we’ve kept are much more informal, literally candid snapshots of people just hanging out having a good time. 

Categories is a good way to organise things – we had Before (both venues), During, Signing the register, Afterwards – inc. a formal group shot of everyone, Start of reception and speeches/gifts, Formal & informal groups on the beach, Cake, and Party!
