What better way to mark your special day than with all of your memories contained in a beautiful wedding photo album.
Once the wedding and honeymoon are over, couples often find themselves at a bit of a loss as there is no longer any planning that needs doing. This new found time can be spent by organising the pictures from your big day into a love wedding photo album that you will cherish for years to come.
Instead of leaving all your informal pictures stored on your computer with an occasional viewing, wedding photo albums for all of the photos other than your official ones are a great way to keep your photos for posterity. They are a real keepsake that will be looked upon fondly for years to come.
Wedding photo albums are a great gift too, so if you are struggling with ideas for a friend’s upcoming wedding, these are the perfect solution.
Taking photos of your big day and making them into an album is an important step and something that can be fun for the two of you to do together. The question that many have is the type of wedding photo albums that they should choose.
Who Is Your Photographer?
Some wedding photographers will offer wedding photo albums as part of their packages. This is something worth talking to them about to find out more about them. Different packages will usually have different types of albums, ranging from traditional photo books to more elegant albums with the photos printed directly onto plastic or glass sheets.
Professional and Personalised Albums
Another option for wedding photo albums is to go personal. You could have your favourite image printed on the front cover, with all of the details of your wedding. There are plenty of companies that offer this for reasonable prices and different designs to choose from.
This can be difficult for some as choosing the favourite image is hard. There are just so many and you may find that you disagree between each other. Of course, there is no need to take a shot from the wedding; you may have engagement or honeymoon shots that you also want to include, to show the lead up and aftermath of the big event.
Finally, there is the option of doing it yourself. If you are very low on funds, you can make your own scrapbook with coloured paper or card and then decorate the front with artwork or something to match the theme or colour scheme of your wedding. There are plenty of ideas; it just depends on how arty you want to be.
There are many options when it comes to wedding photo albums and you do not need to opt for the one a wedding photographer offers. You should gain the copyright to all of your photographs so will be able to do anything that you want with them afterwards and add them to any book you want.
There are many things that you can do to get the best out of your wedding day. Here’s just a few tips for you to help you remember and enjoy your day:
Take some time out during your wedding day to just sit and soak up the atmosphere and commit to memory what is going on around you. The time will just fly by and it’s important to have a little time to yourself to reflect on the day.
Try to keep a diary whilst you are planning your wedding so you can look back and reminisce on all of the things you enjoyed planning for your big day.
Don’t forget to order a wedding photo album to collate all of your pictures in. You can include both official photos and casual ones taken by your guests too.
Delegate someone to purchase a newspaper on the morning of your wedding so you can see what other news happened on your special day. It’s a good idea to take the time to read it while you’re having your hair done – it will take your mind off things and stop your worrying. Beware of black newspaper ink though!
You can also delegate a key person to collect all of your wedding keepsakes after the reception. Copies of table plans, an unused napkin, etc, will all help you to remember your day.
