Wedding albums are one of the most special things you will take with you from your wedding. You will be able to keep it forever and want it to look nice and reflect your personality. There are so many things that you can do with your wedding album. Let’s take a look at some wedding album crafts.
First, you will want to have a wedding guestbook. An idea for it is to have smaller books or nice papers at the tables where your guests can sign their name, write about how they know you, tell a little about how they remember you and about themselves, and draw a picture of themselves. It is a fun way to make sure your guests have a fun time and don’t just have to sign their name. If you do that, you can use the papers and put them into your wedding album. It will be a great way to remember your guests.
You can either buy your own wedding album and then create the pages inside, or you can create your own wedding album. To create your own album, buy a plain binder and then any materials you want to decorate it with. You can use things like material and cover the entire binder with it and batting to make it a soft cover. You can put your picture or a general wedding picture on it. There are lots of things that you can do.
If you buy a wedding album already you can tweak it a little. You can buy one that has a place for a photo already. Use a photo from your wedding or a general picture of a wedding like wedding bells or a chapel, or even the chapel you got married in. Make it special. You will want the memories to be precious and wonderful.
To create the inside pages, you want to make it like a scrapbook. Remember these are memories that you want to keep preserved and looking their best. Use acid free paper and materials. Don’t make it like a child’s scrapbook, but a classy and elegant one. Use colors from your wedding and colors that you love. Use embellishments, ribbon, and trims. Use embellishments not on the pictures but around them. Put in quotes that you and your husband love. You will want a lot of writing in the album, things like the day you were married and quotes from your vows or quotes that you love about marriage, love, and happiness.
Don’t overlap photos. Many times in scrapbooks you will want to have photos overlapping and being creative. Your wedding album should have the photos but not overlapping so they look tacky. If you are including pictures of people doing funny things during the reception that is ok but when you are doing the part during the wedding and pictures of you both you don’t want it too look like you are squishing everything together.
Take your time making your wedding album. You don’t want to have to print out pictures again because you decided that you didn’t like how you did it. It should take time and be a thoughtful and loving process.
