i think i remember your original post of this set and i agreed that it was very oversaturated and over-processed looking. it's amazing the difference in refinement makes when it comes to processing.
in almost every case you're going to be better off editing to the point where you think something has the effect you want and then backing off. these look way better than the previous set you posted, though some of the color and vibrancy seems still a bit strong (for my tastes). i think in your work, or at least this set, it seems you've captured some nice moments and they speak for themselves without needing to rely on heavy processing to make them more "interesting."
when it comes to trimming a set for a blog, i think this is a good exercise for you to practice. there are a lot of similar photos in this set, some of which are a similar part of the story with different people for examples:
the procession you have the bride coming out with the bridesmaids, the bride walking with her father, the flower girls walking down the aisle. ask yourself which of these is the MOST powerful of this moment in the day (obviously you will deliver all of these and more to your client), but the subtle differences from frame to frame doesn't keep a viewer wanting to see more. they will just see more of the same.
also, 16 and 17 are very similar, but there's a very pure and romantic energy about 16, while 17 is nice and happy, it changes the mood of the same scene and in a way dilutes the previous frame.
hope that helps!
