I was just curious to see what most people do with their wedding pictures after the wedding. I’m sure most people put them in an album or hang a few up. How long are they actually hung up before they start to get replaced with pictures of your kids and other family photos? Most friends and family that I visit I never see their wedding day pictures hanging up in their house. Maybe they are up but in the bedroom? Who Knows. I will be getting my pictures back in a month or so and in case I am disappointed with them I am just trying to think about how they may just end up in a box in the attic in a few years anyway! (at least thats where my parents were) We are actually getting an album made that came with the pkg but other than that I feel like we may only have 1 or 2 photos that are actually in frames in our house. Please share just how important your wedding photos ended up being !! Of course we always have memories from the wedding but you know what they say…a picture is worth a thousand words! Fingers crossed that my pics come out wall worthy

I’m a BIG picture person. I love them! When my Fiance and I started dating, I made sure to take lots of pictures to document everything. On our one year dating anniversary I made one of those photo books with the highlights for the year. I did the same for our two-year anniversary, and then for our engagement. So, I plan on doing this with our wedding pictures and honeymoon pictures. I will also frame a few of the best ones to put up in our house 🙂

We will have one or two printed on a small canvas or put in a frame for our home.
We are also giving our parents and DH’s grandma a nice album for Xmas and probably an album for ourselves too.
Posting your whole album on FB is a bit much IMO, maybe just a couple highlights.

We made an album- which I love!! I’m sure I’ll continue to look at if from time to time, and when we have kids, it’s something we can show them. We also have a fair number of them up in our house right now, but like you said, I’m sure they will slowly get replaced with other pictures. I do plan to keep at least one up in our bedroom though. My parents always have had an 8×10 up in their bedroom and I loved looking at it as a kid.
ETA: we did post some to facebook, but I think we kept it to about 30. That seemed like a good number. Enough for those interested, but not crazy.

I posted them on Facebook, made albums for our parents and ourselves, and picked a couple of our favorites to display in our home.

I had our wedding day portrait printed on a large canvas and I plan on Framing it and hanging it over our fire place. It’s our favorite picture. We have a few others that we got printed in various sizes that are/will be displayed around the house. The rest are in an Album. We will be sharing photos with family and sending them prints.

I agree, I never see people’s wedding pictures on the walls unless they’re newly married.

- Wedding: September 2015 - Hotel Ballroom
We made a hardcover photo album, did a teaser album on Facebook, and have one picture framed. So, we did a little bit of everything 🙂

We received three photo frames as wedding presents so we printed some off to put in the frames. One has to be a wedding photo because it has an embossed bride and groom in the corner. So we have two big photos and one medium. We also had a few frames that can hold multiple images. So we have a photo from our engagement photos, two from the wedding and one from the honeymoon. The other frame has one wedding photo with a bunch of other photos and I’ll probably change those photos quite regularly but probably not for the photos that were gifts. Currently all the photo frames are clustered together because of the limited space so it looks like we have a shrine to ourselves which is unsettling. However, we’ll be moving soon so we’ll spread the frames around a bit and hopefully we’ll look less conceited.
We had an album printed because it was included and I always loved looking my parents and grandparents album, even though my parents divorced. I’ve taken it out a few times and looked at it and it’ll live in a book shelf somewhere when we move. We didn’t post any on Facebook but did upload them to Dropbox and either email photos or send the Dropbox link (just the relevant for the recipient not the full 600 pictures).

I know right! I guess once people have kids & new experiences they want to fill their home with new memories & their new family

Thats nice that you got to look at your parents album as a kid. My parents & grandparents never kept their wedding photos around the house and barely had any pictures in general on display. Our wedding photographer makes facebook albums on her page and posts about 20-50 pictures from a couples wedding day when they are ready. I actually may tell her not to so I can just post the few that I want everyone to see.

our photographer had a very nice album made and we keep that in our living room under one of the end tables so people can look at it if they’d like. We also have a few of the wedding pics in frames on the wall. I do have a small album on Facebook as well. Other than that, they’re on 2 CDs in a closet LOL.

- Wedding: September 2017 - Poppy Ridge Golf Course
Eh, with my 1st husband we put them in an album and shoved it in a box sitting in the closet. Took it out maybe once to look through and had one specific photo displayed for a couple months…pretty sure its only bc a close friend bought us this really pretty frame. But neither of us were sentimental types (FI isn’t either) which is why I don’t see the need to spend thousands on a photographer. But this varies by couple.

pictures arent a big thing to us at all, we arent even having a photographer
I might hang 1 picture (the best one) on my wall the way parents and grandparents did and if you must you can have an album easily with 20-30 images so anything else is a dust gathering waste to me, especially when girls brag they got 3000 pictures of their day but really they only have 100 shots with 30 almost identical duplicates of each one where just their hand is slightly moved or they are smiling a little bit more etc…
ill just never get it but then I dont get selfies or any of these ‘photo’ crazes now, I was raised in a photography family and honestly theirs no wow factor in it for me worth justifying £1000s, esspecially as its an old medium that everyone has access to now
I read a survay once that said more than 90% of responders after the first year of marraige had not looked back through their photo albums which just backs up that its a waste to me
