AllyseB:  I would select a few of your favorite pictures from each phase of the day, so that anyone seeing your album gets a general feel for the day – 

-A few of your and his getting ready photos – maybe 2-3 each, so that would be 4-6 photos

-Did you do a first look? maybe 1-2 photos of that

-A few key ceremony photos – you walking down the aisle, looking at each other during the ceremony, walking back down the aisle together, etc. 

-Group shots – you and your girls, he and his groomsmen, wedding party together, family group shots, etc 

-Reception – pick out some of your favorites, maybe first dance photo, cake cutting, etc. 

-Anything else that was particularly special to you or your FI.

Limit it down to 100. Any more than that is over kill. It’s your wedding album and the focus should be on the bride and groom. I would recommend just having 4x6s printed of all the other photos you want to keep and store them in a memory box to view them whenever. But the wedding album should be all about you.

I chose my album pictures based on what I wanted to hang on my walls too.  I knew that I would have a lot of family pictures and posed pictures printed out and hung up, so I focused my album on all of the wonderful moments that I would likely not display in any other way.  Funny bridal party pictures, reception pictures, and shots of my accessories were among the many.  I have a few standard shots (like the photo of the entire wedding party) but mainly it’s fun ones like my husband showing his wedding band off to my in-laws (they asked to see it, lol), our first look, and moments from the day.
