There’s nothing more important than your wedding day and getting all those great photos taken that hopefully will last a lifetime and bring back so many memories every time you look at them. That is, of course if you don’t keep them stashed away in an old shoebox. There are hundreds of wedding scrapbook layout ideas out there to use; finding the right ones for you is the key. Here are some ideas to help you get started on your own wedding scrapbook and to help you figure out which pictures will really help you remember that special day.
The first wedding kiss is one that always makes a great scrapbook page and can be used in many different kinds of designs. Some of the most notorious and memorable scrapbook pages for weddings have been done using an antique look with a color scheme of blacks, whites, and browns. It sounds dismal for a wedding page but these colors make a gorgeous layout, especially for the “first kiss.”
With so many friends and family at the wedding there are loads of ideas you can use with group shots of friends and family members. One idea that’s been used is the theme “circle of friends.” The circle is a representation of life together and never parting one another although you have been married. Friends will always be there through thick and thin so look through your pictures carefully and try to find a great picture of you and your friends that really represents the way you feel about them.
The first dance is another photo that can help capture the moment of your special day together with your new husband. The first dance is a tradition at most weddings today and most performed in the old fashioned days. The first dance that the bride and groom have together will always bring back happy memories, but make sure you include the dance with bride and dad too. You’re never too old to be daddy’s little girl.
Bridal shots. Don’t forget to include the shots of just the bride when you’re doing your wedding scrapbook. These are sometimes taken the day or two before the wedding happens and sometimes take the morning of or right before the wedding happens. Make sure you include photos of the dress, the hair, and definitely the ring. It really is the bride’s day so making a scrapbook without pictures of just the bride will leave your wedding scrapbook empty.
Don’t try and make your wedding scrapbook without a page all about “love.” That’s the best part about a wedding right, that there’s a ton of love to go around for everyone. If you have a good photographer then they’ll definitely be able to capture some great shots of the bride and groom that will show how much they love and cherish each other. Walking down the isle, a close up of the couple dancing together, the first kiss, and even a snapshot of them leaving for the honeymoon.
Nothing makes a wedding cuter than a child who carries the rings and the cute little flower girls that walk down the isle before the bride. These are definitely pictures you want to include in the wedding scrapbook because it reminds the person looking at your book of the innocence of love and the promise and hope of a great and long lasting future.
A wedding scrapbook is probably one of the most fun ones to make because there are so many feelings and emotions to display. Hopefully these wedding scrapbook layout ideas will help get you started and get all those pictures out of that old shoebox.
