I tend to take too many photos. What do you think is a good amount for a basic
5 hour wedding reception with 30-50 people? And of those, how many should
i post online/put on a dvd?

I dont want to overload then, and surely dont want to dilute the frame quality ones.

Get help. More folks to take photos. Someone to help get folks together for the group photos. Someone to help making sure the bride's dress/hair/train/... is in order.

Some good ideas in this thread:http://forums.steves-digicams.com/ge...ng-photos.html

Agree ahead of time as to how to provide the photos - prints. sizes, etc. Some couples just want the pics on DVD to print themselves if they decide to. I would include at least one 8x10 or larger, of the B&G, though.
At a reception, try to get everyone in at least one of the pics.
If you are the 'official' photographer, you will need to spend most of your time with the camera, rather than socializing, or acting as one of the wedding party. You will probably be run pretty ragged getting all the pictures, as well as spending quite a bit of time in post production. Don't be to shy about asking for, or accepting payment - it is work.

Heres my take on it as you have already said you would have taken pictures any way so just say that you will work with them then you give it as your present. Now for the hard part actually doing it follow this link lots said already
I am also sure there are other threads here on wedding to
Good luck and my main advice is prepare a shooting list and talk to the couple see if theres any specials they want and remember its there day and you have to recored it
