I just received mine and I was wondering what other brides did with them.
Here it is popular to make digital album, or to have them printed and have them framed(3-4 max), or I know someone has a bigger printed picture on the wall.
What did you do?

So far, I’ve done nothing!! They live in iPhoto.. We’ve looked at them a bunch of times and plan to have a coffee table book made but, I’ve been slow in getting the ball rolling.

I’m putting up a gallery wall in our living room with a mix of engagement, wedding and honeymoon photos, and when we have kids I’ll add some of them in as well.
I am also going to make an album.

- Wedding: October 2015 - The Vineyard and Winery at Lost Creek, VA
We have a double sided fireplace in our house (I hope that makes sense? its built into the divider wall between living room and dining room) and I am going to have two of the pictures put on canvas – one side will be our engagement photo like this
, and the other will be from our first dance like this

mary90: I plan on getting a large-ish canvas printed for our home then printing some family portriaits to frame asd well as making a photobook. Right now though there is a set of favorites that shuffle through my computer desktop at work and home as well as my screensaver so I see them daily!

We have some in a collage frame that we got from the wedding; it’s on the wall in our living room. I also have various shots in smaller 4X6 or 5X7 frames around the house on shelves (bedroom, basement living room, office). I do plan on getting a canvas wrap put in our bedroom, as well as a larger 11X14 print to go in our bedroom. But, that still hasn’t been done and it’s been 9 months.
We also have some in frames that are sitting on the living room floor that really don’t have a spot right now. I keep telling Darling Husband that we need to get rid (or store) some of his “outdoor” prints as that would free up A LOT of wall space – but that has yet to happen. Our twinhome lacks the wall space at the moment anyway. 🙁 If i had a LONG hallway somewhere, that would be awesome.

- Wedding: May 2015 - Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception / Courtyard Marriott Legacy Ballroom
I created a wedding photo album using Adorama Pix, printed out an 8×10 for a frame we got from our wedding, and I have one of those 4X6 collage frames from Target – it holds 9 pictures – that I’ve filled with wedding pictures. I have the collage frame hung up in my office at work and the 8X10 frame on display in our living room. Oh, and we have another 5×7 frame that holds 2 pictures from our wedding – I put one of our wedding portraits on one side and a copy of our invitation on the other. I’d like to display more photos, but I think I’ll leave room for pictures we’ll take later on – our church is doing a pictorial directory this year and we’ll get a free 8×10 print from our photography session! And I still need to print out at least one picture from our honeymoon for another frame we got from our wedding.

We had a canvas printed for above our bed. I have a few in a frame in the living room and hallway. I also created a shutterfly book and got 101 free 4×6 prints that I put in a photo album. My husband said I can’t put anymore wedding pictures up because it is starting to get creepy… Just wait until we have children!

I updated the files to my computer, and we both uploaded to our respective google photos accounts. We have made a few photobooks with shutterfly using their free photobook promotions. I still had to pay for shipping, but they were still pretty reasonably priced. At some point in the future, we might print some of them for display.

We have a big collage frame with about 10 pics in it and a couple of pics throughout the rest of the house, but the thing I love about our photos is that I scrapbooked them. It took me about 2 months, but I love it. I love crafting and when we were first married, we lived with the ILs for about 5 months so scrapbooking gave me an outlet in a place that wasn’t really home.

I hope to print a bunch of engagement and wedding photos for around the house–I was careful in picking frames for our wedding signs so they can be repurposed for just that! We’re also getting a wedding album with our package, which we’re very pleased about! I’ll also likely make some albums for my parents, my in laws, and my grandmother (who won’t be able to make it since she’s too old to fly–she lives in Spain).
I know it sounds like I have lofty goals but it’s really in my personality to “get things done”. It gives me so much satisfaction to do small tasks like that, especially if the result is visual.

- Wedding: September 2014 - Country Club
We had a 12×18 of our engagement photo and a 12×18 signed wedding photo professionally framed. It will soon be a year since the wedding and we are just having the photog finish our wedding album (40 pg). We also have a few standard size prints (one of us, one of both sides of parents, and a formal bridal party shot) in frames in a bigger bedroom. Honestly, sorting through pics had become such a stressful experience. We had over 3000 from the photog and we used wedpics so we have hundreds of more from guests. And, we had a photo booth with doubles from every pic! I had done a honeymoon album through shutterfly and it turned out fine. However, after spending months trying to design a nice album and edit and sort through so many pics, I gave up… Now the photographer is getting his designer to create one. No more cropping for me! Eventually, I may want to make another album since we have so many pics and not many fit on 40 pages. We also bought large prints for both sides of parents.

We did a wall for our wedding photos. I have a lot of my wedding clients come to my house for photography meetings, so I figured I better have my own photos on display 😉 haha.

I have an album on my computer to save all the digital images long term. I printed out a bunch to send with thank you notes. I made us a photo book of my favorites. My one for all the parents and my sister too. I also put a couple out in frames we were given as gifts.
I did that about 2 months after the wedding. More recently, about 6 months after the wedding we finally hung some up on a wall. I think it turnEd out well. We had a ton of photos we loved!
