How Many Is "Too Many?"

We still aren't settled or organized enough to unpack and/or hang art in our condo - but we do have some wedding photos up. My question is, do we have TOO MANY wedding photos up? I'd hate to be THAT girl. Will they look less imposing once we have other stuff on the walls?  Am I just paranoid because my friends called the fireplace display a shrine? What do you guys think? How much is TOO MUCH? Has anyone else wondered this?

I think that you should put up as many pics as you would like. You're still excited about your wedding pictures and there is nothing wrong with that.

ooo this is a tough one. I think the number itself isn't the issue, but the rato of wedding to non wedding pictures/posters/etc. If wedding stuff far outweighs other decorations, than I would guess you'd be "that girl" territory. But, I'd think anything under 50/50 is AOK!

Yeah, I agree with the above commenter...it's not about the number but the contrast throughout your home. If you have nothing but wedding photos everywhere, then that's probably too many. But not because you love your wedding pics too much...just because it's important to show who you are as a couple outside of just the wedding. What about vacation and holiday pics? And pics with your family and friends? I have pics all over my house of all kinds of stuff...weddings, baby pics, beach pics, party pics, etc. Have fun with it!

Silly question, there can never be too many! :) Seriously, though, your pictures are gorgeous, show 'em off! And then, if and when you have kids, your weddings photos will soon be outnumbered anyway.

I can't wait to get some of ours printed and framed!

As time goes on you'll probably change out your photos so I wouldn't worry about it. You spent good money on those wedding photos. Display them!

You're self-conscious because of the comment. Over time, you'll probably pare them down anyway. Once you hang other art, your fears will subside.
