There is nothing more exciting than receiving your wedding photos. It gives you the opportunity to relive the best day of your life, where you created memories that you will want to keep forever. 

Once you have poured over the photos yourselves, the first thing most couples want to do is share them with their friends and family members. But sharing a huge number of photos can be time-consuming and take up a lot of your data allowance too. So what is the best way to share your wedding photos online? 

Here are five great options:  

  1. EventsAlbum
    EventsAlbum is an innovative way to share your wedding photos with others, both at your wedding and after the event. Couples can share a QR code with all of the guests at their wedding: guests then scan this code and use it to quickly and conveniently upload all of the photos they have taken. 

This is a fun and easy way to share the photos that have been taken not only by your wedding photographer but by all of your wedding guests as well. And because no app or social media account is needed to use EventsAlbum, every guest can be part of the sharing experience. 

  1. Google Drive
    Many wedding photographers will use Google Drive to share images with their brides and grooms. This is an easy and convenient way to organise photos, as they can be categorised into different folders and sub-folders.

The happy couple can give access to friends and family to view and edit their wedding photos, but sharing a Google Drive folder with a huge number of people can be more time-consuming than many of the other methods on this list. 

  1. Facebook
    Perhaps one of the most common ways to share your wedding photos with friends and family is via Facebook. There are around 350 million photos shared every day on the popular media site.

    You can create an album on the site and choose whether you want your images to be seen by all of your Facebook friends or just a selected group of friends and family members. The main drawback of using Facebook to share your wedding photos is that only people you are ‘friends’ with on the site will be able to see your album. This means that extended family members, distant friends, or those without Facebook accounts could be excluded.
  2. Picshare Party
    This is a unique tool that allows couples to gather images into one album via text message. This is a great way to access those late-night party photos and funny moments that wedding guests might not otherwise think to share. As no app or social media account is needed, this might also be another good option for older guests. 

The main drawback of this approach is that the images shared by text message will not be of the highest resolution, making it difficult to print them in a large format. 

  1. Flickr
    Flickr is a photo-sharing website and free app that allows users to create their own accounts and albums. Whilst Flickr is a communal photo-sharing site, it is possible to set the privacy of your photos or album so that they can be seen by everyone, no one at all, or just friends and family. 

However, some photos and groups can’t be accessed if you don’t have a Flickr account, meaning that this photo-sharing method won’t necessarily work for everyone.
