Just curious, how many wedding photos do y鈥檃ll have framed or otherwise displayed around your house (and which ones? 馃槃)

Or if you鈥檙e not married yet, do you have an idea of how many you plan to hang up and what types of photos you鈥檒l want to display?

Right now we have either 2 or 3 (depending on what you count). First one is in an 8x10 frame that we were gifted, second is in a 4x6 frame on the wall, and third one isn鈥檛 framed but it鈥檚 the cover of our album which we keep on the coffee table.

I feel like, how many pictures of ourselves do we really need hanging up? Lol. But I鈥檝e also been considering maybe one of those collage frames and putting in some of the family photos we took at the wedding... Haven鈥檛 decided yet, but just curious what the rest of you have done or plan to do!

    Hey! I haven鈥檛 gotten married yet but I plan on only having 1-2 pictures out. I once stayed in an AirBNB where the couple had enormous canvases of themselves at their wedding all over the house, maybe like 10-15 photos. I thought it was a little over the top.

    Also, do you mind telling me where the first photo was taken? I鈥檓 getting married at the Bernard鈥檚 inn (same as you!) and wanted to know where that greenery is!

    However many you want! We have an album in our living room on our coffee table, and two large canvas photos in the living room above our couch. I have a picture in my wallet, and we have 10 canvas pictures in our bedroom on a wall. But we are the only people ever in our master bedroom, so that's basically just for us.

    We will probably have one or two wedding photos displayed. We also plan to display our vows in our bedroom somehow.

    We're still waiting to get our photos back, but we know for sure we're getting two large metal prints, which we'll probably choose a staged picture and something from the ceremony. We'll probably also get a collage frame to display some fun candid photos from the reception. We spent a lot of money on photography, no shame in showing it all off! Lol

    We have 2 framed in the downstairs hallway, one of our entire wedding party framed above the couch along with our wedding invitation, and then 2 framed in the upstairs hallway. I鈥檓 sure over the years we might switch some of those pictures out for different life events especially if we have kids. I also got my vows to my husband printed and framed on letterpress for our first anniversary and those are on a console table.

    Yeah right, I鈥檇 feel like a little narcissistic hanging up more photos of just ourselves hahaha, but I am torn on the family photos or not 馃し馃徎鈥嶁檧锔

    So the first photo was taken by the barn outside... not sure if you know where that is? But so if you walk out of the inn, make a right, cross the street once, the barn is by a little parking lot that鈥檚 there. You could definitely ask someone at the Inn where the barn is and they鈥檇 know. It honestly looks super unimpressive in person because it鈥檚 literally a parking lot hahaha, but it鈥檚 a really nice backdrop for photos (and you can鈥檛 see the parking lot in the photos 馃槀). But so if you鈥檙e facing the barn, we took that photo just to the left of it. There鈥檚 a little brick wall and a tiny river over the edge and the greenery there was one of my favorite photo spots by far 馃槏

    I just got a Groupon for 2 canvas prints so we'll have at least 2! Smiley xd

    We also got a really nice picture frame from the church that we'll hang up once we get photos printed to put in it.

    Oh my god I am in this dilemma aha. I have one so far because a pal gave me a custom frame for the desk so it's small but I wanted to print big canvases for the wall and I can't decide what cluster layout I want or how many

    Oh boy.. I'm hoping that parents gift us some pictures because I do not have an eye for decorating. I don't think I could pick a frame, picture AND spot in my house to hang stuff LOL maybe it will change when we buy a house or maybe I'll just need to have my mother in law decorate for me? Smiley winking

    I created a gallery wall in my hallway with wedding pictures in various sizes (4x6 up to 11x14) and then also framed a couple of 5x7 prints for the mantel. When I get home later I'll take a picture of the gallery wall and include it here.

    We have a 20x30 canvas in our dining area, two 8x10's in frames, one of which we are planning to hang (somewhere...) and the other is a tabletop frame. We also have another 11x14 we need to find a frame for and we'll hang that one in the study. We'll get an album printed, but I don't think we'll print any more for our home at the moment. When we move into a bigger house, we might print more, who knows!

    We've only been married 6 weeks, but we already have a magnet from Shutterfly (free gift for getting our thank you notes from there).

    I am hoping to do a wedding album for our holiday gift to ourselves, and we'll probably get nice prints for our parents... I don't know which ones we would choose for ourselves! There are so many!

    Of course, our social media also has pictures all over...

    I hung a picture from our first dance in a frame with the song lyrics. We got a giant collage frame for our shower and there are 9 pictures in there (12 total) but not all of just us: 3 family pics, one with my grandma, one with his groomsmen and one with my bridesmaids. And then I have our ring exchange in a frame with my bouquet in our bedroom.
