I attached them with one staple on the edge and on a plain piece of paper. Some people put them in little bag and attached that to a piece of paper. Just make sure you attach them to something visable and not easily lost in the other papers.

What I did was to create a very small photobook with soft cover. This eliminated the need to deal with lose photos. It also enabled me to add texts and use the pictures to tell the story of our life from when we met, through our engagement and finally our wedding. I hope this is helpful.
