Bridal albums: Premium Wedding Photo Albums | Artifact Uprising


The Best Wedding Albums for Every Budget

Your photographer should be able to give you suggestions for wedding albums (or offer to create one for you!), but if they didn’t or if you waited too long to order, you might be wondering what other choices are available to you. Since we firmly believe all wedding photos deserve to be transformed into an heirloom you can appreciate for years to come, we rounded up our favorite—and most trusted—sources for turning your favorite big-day pictures into an album. From the most hands-off (therefore, most expensive) to the most hands-on (and most affordable), we found the best albums on the market.

No matter your printing method or the formality of your wedding photo album, you should aim to order your book within six months of the celebration when your emotions are still fresh, but you’re far enough removed to be critical of which selects should make the final cut. We can’t tell you how many couples postpone creating a wedding album so long that they ultimately never get around to it. After all of the planning that went into the big day and all of the fun that was had at the reception, it’s important to cull your favorite snapshots together in a way that beautifully commemorates the occasion. While you’re at it, consider creating albums for both sets of parents, which make for wonderful gifts.

Familiarize yourself with common printing methods and binding techniques before signing any dotted lines with your photographer, or at the very least, ask to see samples. Otherwise, you might be disappointed with the quality or style of the finished product. If you find yourself feeling some sticker shock, remember that you’re creating a custom keepsake that will last for years to come, and that’s truly priceless. If you opt to do it yourself, there are a handful of great resources with numerous offerings to choose from. Click through to see our favorite sources for wedding albums—most of which you can easily order online.

We Review 5 of the Best Wedding Photo Album Creators

MILK Books

After the last thank you note is (finally!) sent and life post-wedding begins to settle into a comfy cozy new normal, the time for finding a more permanent home for your wedding photos has arrived. While sharing the highlights from your big day on social media is fun, decades from now you’ll probably want a physical wedding photo  album to pass around between family members and reminisce over.

But the process of creating your perfect wedding album, especially if you’re looking to use an online service, isn’t easy. With countless options to choose from it can be difficult to settle on the one that will work best for you and make your photos shine.

I recently went through the process of putting mine together, and to be honest wasn’t the most fun thing I’ve ever done. After spending hours organizing the photos in the online album creator and developing a severe case of achy trackpad finger, I ordered our wedding album…only to realize the next morning that I had left out 40 images! I was able to get a 50 percent refund to try again, but when I received the printed copy, my heart sank. Every picture was mysteriously tinted blue!

After contacting the company, they looked into the problem and sent me a new photo book, but the mysteriously blue images remained. Whether the method of printing or paper type caused the malfunction, my patience was starting to wear thin, so I accepted a refund, and set out to find a new printer. That’s when I found my wedding album savior, touted for printing photos with brilliant, true colors. After nearly a month of struggling, I finally received the gorgeous wedding album I had hoped for.

Before you put together your wedding album, consider the pros and cons of these five popular wedding photo album creators, and hopefully your experience will flow smoothly from receiving your images from your wedding photographer to opening your album for the first time.

PikPerfect Wedding Albums

Pros: You simply upload your wedding photos and choose your favorite album and design style, and their professional design experts do the rest with unlimited free revisions. That means you no longer have to sit in front of your computer wondering how to arrange your album. The result is a beautifully designed heirloom-quality album at an affordable price, which explains why so many couples

and wedding photographers love the service.

Cons: The design service and professional printing process can mean a longer wait time until you receive your album. Once you approve your album design, printing and shipping can take around 10-14 days vs. 5 days for some DIY online wedding photo album creators (though they do offer an expedited option for an additional $25).

MILK Photo Books

Pros: As one of the trendiest photo book makers available, this service offers very high-end finishings and add-ons, including leather covers and presentation boxes. They also guarantee vibrant, true to color printing on archival quality paper.

Cons: But you don’t get this kind of luxury without paying more. As the most expensive option among these five creators, an album here can run upwards of several hundred dollars. The layout editor is also less flexible, not allowing for personalization of their (albeit lovely) pre-made layouts.

Artifact Uprising
Artifact Uprising

Pros: With their fabric covers and high-quality book jackets, the photo books made through this service have a high end, luxury look, and with up to 200 pages allowed in the album, it’s no wonder this is one of the top wedding album services online.

Cons: Unlike with other services, there is no choice of paper, taking away the opportunity to select a paper that will best compliment your images. This can lead to color distortion and fading in some cases. The album editor is also limiting, constraining creators to choosing between pre-made layouts rather than designing new page layouts themselves.


Pros: The brand new Make My Book service makes this album creator the perfect option for the busy bride. All you have to do is upload your photos, send them off to a designer and within three days, you’ll have a layout returned to you ready for your edits. Additionally, if you decide to design your own book, their idea pages can help you along the way.

Cons: Despite the ease of creating the book, we have read some reports of delayed shipping and deliveries as well as some quality hiccups. Just be sure to read recent reviews and contact customer support if you have any questions.


Pros: With the largest available photo book coming in at a maximum of 399 pages, this is the photo album for brides who want to include every single image from their big day. Using the auto fill option and fully customizable layout, you will surely be able to design a photo book that looks exactly the way you want it to.

Cons: Unlike several of the other photo book creators that are intended specifically for significant events like weddings, this album creator produces only standard photo books without the options of high-end cover finishes.

Other wedding photo album creators that made our list:


Pros: Because all of their albums are flat lay, landscape oriented photos can cover the entire expanse of the photo book without the center portion getting lost in the fold. Additionally, their layouts are fully customizable, allowing you to change the sizes of photo and text boxes to meet your preferences. This service also offers a selection of papers, which give your images either a dreamy, faded appearance or a bold color pop. Hint: This is the creator that gave me my perfect wedding album!

Cons: Because the layout designer offers so much customization, it can get a bit time consuming and overwhelming if you aren’t familiar with similar platforms. Additionally, each photo book is limited to 100 pages, meaning some photos might not make the cut.

Brides, and the weddings they plan, are infinitely unique — as are the photo books that preserve their memories. Using these album creator pros and cons, you can build the album that is perfect for you and that you will treasure for decades to come!

90,000 Wedding Photo Albums: Design Ideas

The exciting wedding day is over. Now only fond memories of such a long-awaited, but fleeting holiday remain. It’s time to think about a beautiful “package” of memorable moments, namely, about a wedding album.

The team of the site invites you to find out the features of photo albums for a wedding photo shoot, as well as get acquainted with wedding master classes that will surely inspire you to new ideas.

How to choose the style of an album for newlyweds

If you want the wedding album to tell about your celebration in one appearance, then try to choose an album in the same theme as the wedding. For example, trash-style photographs are unlikely to look relevant in a classically designed photo album. In this case, it is worth paying attention to unusual design ideas.

Popular Wedding Album Styles:

  • Retro .Distinctive features of the retro style are aged pages, the presence of lace, ink pen inscriptions. Ask your grandmother if she has old envelopes, stamps or even letters in her bins. Such details will be very useful to complement the retro album;
  • Shabby Chic . This style gives a wide space for imagination: aged pages, textiles of delicate shades, beads, pendants, paper with an ornament or with a floral pattern – shabby chic includes everything that is dear to your heart and that allows you to create a romantic mood;
  • Mix Media .This option will be an excellent choice for those who like to play and mix styles, are not afraid of bright colors and unexpected solutions. Media Mix allows you to translate your favorite pictures, apply stamps, include vintage notes and much more. When choosing a mix media style for your wedding album, don’t overdo it with the stuffing. Examples of the correct combination and design can always be found on the Internet and in thematic master classes;
  • European Style .Whether it is a wedding photo book or a familiar photo album, European style is always distinguished by restraint and laconicism. The background of the pages is one-color, but at the same time either white or colored. Curly scissors, crayons, colored markers and stamps are used. The European design allows you to play with the shapes of the pictures themselves, so you can easily cut out hearts, ovals, squares and more;
  • Rustic . Wedding albums for photographs in rustic style are distinguished by calm shades, the presence of natural textiles, lace and floral arrangements.

Stylized albums look very attractive. You will hardly be able to buy an unusual wedding album in a store, but ordering or making a wedding album with your own hands means getting a truly unique and original result!

Design of a wedding album

Only painstaking work with your own hands on the design of the wedding album will convey your feelings, emotions and the mood of the celebration.After all, no one except you knows how much you were waiting for the wedding day, how carefully you prepared every detail and how exciting every minute passed on the solemn day …

Start your album design by choosing a cover phrase. You can do with the standard “Our Wedding”, but this way you are unlikely to emphasize the individuality of the celebration.

Possible titles for the album:

  1. Our family’s birthday;
  2. Family. Start;
  3. Together and forever;
  4. Perfect wedding.Photo report;
  5. The Secret of Happiness: A Beginner’s Guide.

As titles, you can also take quotes from the great, lines from your favorite songs or movies. For example, “Eternal love”, “And the sky was not enough, and the earth”, etc.

If the cover can still be made in the style of minimalism, then the filling of the album should be filled with the best moments of the celebration as much as possible. And here we are talking not only about beautiful and high-quality photos:

  • Important wedding details .For example, in the album you can put / glue / pick up the bride’s short glove, notes with vows, a piece of veil, a dried flower from a wedding bouquet, a groom’s boutonniere, a couple of greeting cards … In general, everything that is dear to your heart and can fit on small pages. After all, memory is always kept in the details;
  • Inscriptions . In the wedding album, quotes and comments will be appropriate. For example, you want to emphasize what a great idea it was, buy colored smoke for a photo shoot, or emphasize your tender feelings with quotes: “You and I discovered long ago that love gives wings”, “If I were offered eternity without you, I would chose the moment, but with you… “,” What a great happiness it is to love and be loved “,” In family life, the most important screw is love. ” Choose labels together, because this is the only way to reveal the essence and depth of your relationship.

To get a truly beautiful and original handmade wedding album, recommends to take into account several rules:

  1. Decide in advance on the concept. Think over the size, style, colors, choose decorations, paper;
  2. Think over the filling. For yourself, note where and how many pages each stage of the wedding will take: gathering of the young, ransom, meeting, registry office … not a single moment should be missed;
  3. Choose your photo carefully. And take the time and look at the pictures of the guests, not just the photographer. We are sure that amateur photos will capture your sincere emotions, which must be included in a family album;
  4. Photoshop is our everything. Spend time and correct your favorite photos: remove red eyes, bags under the eyes, remove unnecessary and random objects, and more.Wedding photos must be perfect!
  5. Re-think the labels carefully. Decide with which photos and where to place them, decide whether you will print quotes or write them by hand.

Yes, making a wedding album with your own hands will take a lot of time. But after, years later, you will turn with trepidation every page filled with your love and soul.

Wedding photo album design – 50 photos, which should be in the album

Wedding albums for photographs. Are they relevant now, when all images can be stored on digital media? Any photographer and “experienced” newlyweds will answer you in the affirmative: “Yes, they are relevant.Yes, we do. ” Firstly, the design of an album with wedding photos (especially if it is done with your own hands) is a pleasant and beautiful business. Secondly, the printed pictures can be reviewed over and over again at any time and even children can watch them. And today we will compile a list of 50 moments that should be conveyed to the photographer at the wedding.


1. It is the first frames that set the tone for the whole day. Therefore, focus on this – let the very first pictures be fun and mischievous.A good idea for a wedding album would be pictures of you jumping on the bed, having fun and smiling a lot, getting ready to celebrate.

2. “Reward” a friend of the groom and one of the bridesmaids with cameras – let them shoot the most interesting moments of the gathering of the newlyweds. Surely you will get interesting shots!

3. Photos with printed materials – invitations, envelopes, postcards … All “printed” products related to your holiday will look great in a wedding album.

4. Write a letter to your future husband with your own hands (and let him do the same) – and ask the invited photographer to take a photo when you read messages to each other. You will get extremely touching shots!

5. The bride’s shoes are another great shot that should be in your album. As a rule, shoes are removed either together with the dress, or separately – with some detail (perfume, beads, invitations).

6. Do not forget to take off the groom’s boutonniere.This is one of the important accessories. In the picture, she can be captured with the bride’s bouquet.

7. By the way, about the bouquet. A successful, juicy and beautiful picture of a newlywed bouquet can become, perhaps, the main decoration of your photo album. Therefore, do not forget to pay special attention to the colors.

8. Details decide, if not everything, then a lot. Therefore, when putting on a wedding dress, ask the photographer to take pictures of some interesting details of the outfit: to show the beauty and subtlety of lace, an original pattern or decor.

9. Photos from the bride’s fees are now in every wedding photo album. Don’t miss this wonderful moment too. The more pictures in the morning, the better: there will be plenty to choose from and what to remember, years later.

10. And, of course, the expressions on the faces of the bridesmaids. this is a storm of emotions and a sea of ​​positive! Therefore, such a photo is the very place in the album!


11. It is not worth a lot, in detail and in great detail to shoot the moment of applying makeup. A couple of shots are enough where the bride completes her make-up.Believe me, this is definitely enough “for memory”.

12. But the groom’s portraits are worth paying attention to. The bride in wedding photos is always number one. But sometimes less attention is paid to the pictures of the future spouse. Become an exception – let the photo of your chosen one be enough in the family album.

13. The first meeting of the bride and groom is the very moment when the emotions of the young people are most sincere. Therefore, do not miss this moment. Add this shot to your must-have list.

14. The emotions of a father, grandfather, grandmother or mother when they saw their little girl in a wedding dress will become a wonderful shot.

15. Musicians, artists waiting for the start of the celebration – also a wonderful shot that will decorate the wedding album.

16. Photos of gifts for guests – should also be included in this list. Ask the photographer to take a few pictures: a general shot with gifts and one of the presents in close-up.

17. Rings close-up.This photo is a must! And how you present it – on your hands, on flower petals or otherwise – depends on the imagination of the photographer.

18. Photo of the place where your celebration will take place – it is also worth capturing.

19. Close-ups of details of the ceremony should also be included in the album. Then you will be pleased to remember this.

20. And, of course, the moment the newlyweds arrive at the place of celebration. This shot will also become one of the main ones.


21.Friends of the groom and bridesmaids are the most important helpers of the newlyweds. Don’t forget to include them in your album too.

22. General photo of the bride with her bridesmaids. What could be more touching and brighter?

23. And, of course, a snapshot of the groom with his friends. By the way, these shots are usually the most funny and funny ones. So let your imagination run wild and fool around.

24. Witness and witness at the place of registration. Ask a photographer to take pictures of them. The main thing is their faces and emotions. Believe me, they will be unique.

25. The moment when the bride walks along the path to her chosen one. With dad or alone – not so important. Emotions are important again. Let there be a lot of them.

26. Faces of the groom and the bride, as well as friends and girlfriends at the moment when the young people say vows to each other. After all, this moment will not be repeated later. Hurry up to catch him!

27. The pictures are always beautiful when the newlyweds leave their signatures.

28. And again emotions! But already at the moment when you were told that you “are now spouses.”

Another important detail is the transitions from one section to another.A great way to make your story in pictures dynamic and consistent is with so-called “in-between” photographs. For example: a snapshot of a couple leaving – an excellent transition from the “registration” section to the “banquet” section.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with size. Let one page of the album be completely filled with a huge portrait of the newlyweds, but on the other there will fit a whole kaleidoscope of small pictures of smiling guests. Now, it’s time to talk about the design of the wedding album.

Designing a wedding album

If you decide to design an album yourself, then in stores you will be offered three types:

Wedding scrapbooking album

Wedding scrapbooking albums are becoming more and more popular. They are easy to make with your own hands, the main thing is to have high-quality materials and detailed instructions.

Required materials

Additionally, you will need paper for finishing. To make volumetric inscriptions, letters are cut out from the cardstock and glued to double-sided tape.

Great idea – a small envelope on the back page – for memorabilia and photos.

Manufacturing Instructions

  1. First, cut out the backing for the pages, they can be square or rectangular.
  2. Cover the cardboard with colored paper, paying particular attention to the corners.On the back side we will glue a sheet of bright cardstock.
  3. It remains to make holes with a hole punch and string them onto the rings.

The frame for the album is ready and can be filled with photos and decorated.

First Page

Every book begins with a title page: when you open the cover, you are immediately on it. The viewer should immediately feel the style of your wedding album. Since this is the only single sheet, it would be appropriate to make an inscription here, for example, the names of the bride and groom, the date of the wedding.You can pick up a beautiful epigraph. For example: “Love is the only passion that does not recognize either the past or the future,” O. Balzac. There is also a portrait of the newlyweds. It could be a wedding photo, an engagement photo, or just your favorite photo.

The rest of the pages are usually double. Remember that they are “read” as a whole, so they must match in color and event content.

Lead Theme

Choose a Lead Theme for your album, it does not have to be the same color or type of paper for each spread.It is best if the style of the photographs is uniform.

Chronological organization

The sequence of events makes it easy to organize the album. Do not try to keep the number of shots the same in each section. Don’t forget about signatures, including poems. You can read about wedding verses. Despite the fact that the photos speak for themselves, there are things that they are not able to tell, so do not skimp on the signatures.

Here are the main points to consider in a wedding album:

We hope that the proposed wedding album design ideas will be useful, and you will create your wedding book – unique and magical.

Fans of creativity are in a creative search for new forms, variations of decor, styles, ideas for the beautiful design of their masterpieces.The industry also does not stand still, surprising needlewomen with new auxiliary tools, materials with which you can experiment, surprise, creating truly original hand-made gizmos.

For work you need not only scrapbooking paper. Creating a wedding book requires special tools. You will need curly hole punches, all kinds of stamps, an art knife and other auxiliary accessories.

Materials and tools

Beginners should know that they will definitely need to work:

  1. Basic materials.These include backing from sheets of beer cardboard, cardstock, pastel and parchment paper, scrapbooking paper.
  2. Decor. It all depends on the imagination and personal preferences of the author. Lace and satin ribbons, heart-shaped chipboards, die cuts, half beads, artificial flowers made of fabric or paper, rhinestones, volumetric appliques and much more. The theme of decoration will be emphasized not only by the decor. On the pages you can place wedding invitations, napkins, stickers and everything that will help you to vividly recall the picture of the celebration.
  3. Tools. For work, a standard stationery set with scissors, PVA glue and double-sided tape, a ruler and a pencil will certainly come in handy.

When choosing materials, preference should be given to wear-resistant and durable, which will preserve a valuable and memorable heritage for posterity. It is important to consider the optimal album size.

Wedding Album Design Secrets

There are only three standard sizes to choose from:

  • 30 * 30 – You can place several pictures on the pages, generously decorating each of them.Such an album is somewhat heavy, it is voluminous and impressive in size.
  • 25 * 25 – “golden mean”, the pages will fit either a few small pictures, or one, but large format.
  • 20 * 20 – a compact book, but only one 10 * 15 photo will fit on the page. For fans of miniatures, this size is optimal.

When choosing a suitable format, it should be borne in mind that the weight and volume of an album is influenced not only by the size and number of pages. The design method, the choice of materials and the amount of decor on the pages are of no small importance.

Selecting a design style

There is no separate style for wedding albums. The decoration can be done in any style, boldly experimenting, surprising and creating a romantic mood. There are many decorating directions in scrapbooking, with their own rules and principles.

Design styles

As creative practice shows, several styles are most popular for wedding themes.

Shabby Chic

A wedding is not only merry festivities and a noisy feast.During the ceremony, we can watch the miracle of the birth of a new family. Shabby chic is a romantic and gentle scraping method characterized by a pastel shade palette. Light green, pale blue, a shade of pink fog or spring lilac – all these colors are relevant for stylistics. As for the decor, anything that evokes romantic associations will do. These are lace, satin ribbons, pictures, chipboards and cardboard cuttings on the theme of love.

Shabby chic album

Shabby chic is characterized by the use of fabric.Chintz or cotton patches with floral patterns will ideally decorate the pages. Angels, hearts, glass or pearl beads – all this can fill with meaning and reveal the theme.

Retro or Vintage

Similar styles are often used to create a wedding album using scrapbooking technique. A light touch of antiquity, romance and mystery are the distinctive features of the styles.

Retro or vintage style is unthinkable without journalism. Commemorative inscriptions, quotes or lines from poems “in the subject” will create an aura of romance and love, looking at the pages of the wedding album.

Retro style wedding album

To make the stylistics with a touch of antiquity look realistic, such artistic techniques as distressing, craquelure or patina are used. The magazine can be printed separately on an old typewriter, pages can be decorated with artificially aged letters, postcards, cinema or theater tickets.

Vintage Wedding Album

Metal pendants in the form of a key and a lock, an intricate heart, a watch will help to emphasize the vintage style.

American Style

American decoration traditions are the most popular in the creation of scrap products. A bright color palette, simplicity of forms, many decorations, but an obligatory compositionality. Chaotic and inconsistent décor tires the eye, so a sense of proportion is always important. For the pictures, you can prepare separate inscriptions in order to revive the events of the wedding celebration in the memory on occasion.

American Style Design Lesson

The main thing is the emotionality of the design, which is created by pasting stamps, labels, programs, honeymoon tickets, etc.When creating a composition, you should always remember that the wedding photo comes first, and the decorations are just a bright addition to it.

  • 1mm thick binding board.

  2. The second step is binding creasing.For this we need a special board.
  3. Now we put together the whole construction of our future album. To do this, bend our blanks along the punched lines, and carefully glue them together, starting from the central spread of the album. You will end up with a naked mini-album, which you will need to dress up in the cover in the future.
  4. Cutting out the cover is just as crucial as it requires precision and precise measurements. For the cover, you can take a special 1 mm thick binding board.
    We cut it out like this: 2 sheets of 12.5cm x 17.3cm and 12.5cm x 3.2cm, and 2 more strips of 12.5cm x 3.5cm. To make it convenient for you to work, glue the parts with masking tape at a distance of 3-4 mm from each other.
  5. Now let’s start installing the magnetic buttons. To do this, it is necessary to outline the places of punctures for the fasteners on the strap of the workpiece, which will be closed. At the same distance from the edge, we outline the places for two more buttons.

    At your request, the buttons can be located next to or at a distance from each other.
  6. Fasten on the back of the button, install the washers (they are sold complete with buttons of the appropriate size).
  7. We glue our structure with the cover already covered with fabric. You need to start gluing from the back of the cover and the strap on which the buttons are located. The front part remains intact at this stage. We install the second halves on the cover, coloring the centers of the installed buttons with a marker, thus making marks on the cover.
  8. We fix the buttons on the cover, glue the structure completely. Our wedding photo album using scrapbooking technique is almost ready. It remains for you to arrange the face of the cover and the inner sheets, where the photographs will be located.

Wedding is a romantic and long-awaited holiday in the life of every young couple, because a new family is being born. Everyone tries to make this day simply fabulous, as most often it is the only such day in life that you want to truly remember for the rest of your life.And so that bright and positive moments of this day remain, the newlyweds always order video and photography, so that everything remains in memorable frames. It goes without saying that any photos should be kept in a special wedding album, which at any time you can get out and look through, remember everything that happened on this wonderful day. Since handmade work is now considered very relevant and valuable, it will be very useful to give the newlyweds this very album, which will be made with soul and love.We will now consider a master class on making a wedding album with our own hands.
For its manufacture we take:

  • Binding cardboard 1.5 mm thick 21 * 21 cm two sheets;
  • Metal rings;
  • Printed pages with elements and wedding lettering;
  • Sintepon;
  • Fabric lilac in two shades, we take good Korean cotton;
  • Chipboard “Album” or “Our wedding”;
  • Wide lilac embroidered lace and double cotton lace;
  • Scrap paper in a lilac tone three sheets of 30 * 30 cm;
  • Lilac eyelets;
  • White and white-lilac paper roses;
  • Eyelet installer;
  • Lilac satin ribbon 25 mm wide;
  • Semi-pearl lilac;
  • Pendants metal swans and hearts;
  • Brads metal;
  • Cutting from mother-of-pearl lilac cardboard: hearts, butterflies, flowers, glasses;
  • Scissors, ruler, glue stick, pencil, lighter, Focus glue, double-sided tape.

We take square blanks from binding cardboard and glue strips of double-sided tape on them.

Now we cut and glue the synthetic winterizer.

We will combine the fabric, so we cut a little less cuts into small peas, two cuts, and with a floral print we cut a little more than two cuts. Do not forget to make a reserve for sewing fabrics and tucking around.

Also immediately cut off two cuts of the satin ribbon and two cuts of lace.Now we need to iron all the fabric cuts and the tape well. We sew the pieces of fabric in two, and at the joints we sew first one lace, and then another.

Now we need to cover our binding with fabric. First we smear the corners, wrap and glue, and then completely cover the edges. In the center we glue strips of tapes from the inside onto double-sided tape.

Prepared the cover, it remains to stitch it along the edges. Cut out two squares for endpapers 20.5 by 20.5 cm and a rectangle 11 * 13 cm from scrap paper.

Try on decorations on the cover and sew them on.

Now we glue the scrapbook endpapers inside the covers.

Any solemn event ends sooner or later. However, the memory of him will live forever if you manage to capture all the pleasant moments on film. For example, a wedding is considered one of the most memorable events. During this bright celebration, it is customary to turn to the services of professional photographers who are able to capture and frame the bright moments of the emergence of the future unit of society.For storing the resulting photos, it is best to use wedding albums. We will tell you how you can make them with your own hands below.

What can be used to make a wedding album?

A wedding memorable album can be made from any materials at hand, lying in your wardrobes and dressers. For example, it is quite possible to make the cover for an album from soft wallpaper for painting, cardboard and decorative elements.

Another thing is that not all materials will be ideal (they will not sag and bend under the weight of the decor).That is why it is best to make a wedding album with your own hands using professional scrapbooking paper. For example, ScrapBerry’s, Webster’s, My Mind’s and other types of paper will do.

How can you decorate the finished album?

The following materials are best suited for decorating a wedding album:

  • lace;
  • Satin ribbons;
  • decorative bead halves with a sticky backing;
  • thread floss;
  • origami flowers;
  • plaster figures;
  • beautiful sticker figures;
  • dried flowers;
  • artificial buds;
  • fabric flowers;
  • cuts of veil or tulle;
  • braid;
  • decorative butterflies, hearts, pigeons and other figurines.

What needs to be considered when making an album?

Making a wedding album is a long and painstaking process associated with certain rules and regulations. For example, in order for your album to be harmonious and complete, it is necessary to observe a uniform color scheme. Also, do not overdo it with the number of decorative elements.

They, firstly, should not create the effect of piling up, and secondly, there should not be too many of them on one sheet.Do not forget that the primary role in the album is played not by decorative elements, but by photographs.

Also, when working with adhesive, be careful to hide all corners and seams. This will help give your piece a neat and aesthetic appearance. And of course, all the elements should be in the theme and be combined with each other.

“Pre-flight” preparation for the creative process

Before making a wedding album, you need not only to prepare the necessary tools and decorative elements for work, but also to create a kind of layout of the future product.

To do this, first carefully think over the sequence of motives used and try to create a storyline. Lay out photos, pictures and decor in the form in which they will be attached to the album, etc.

Which binding option can I use?

When the preliminary layout of the future album has been drawn up, you can choose one of several options for binding for the product. For example, during your work, you can use a classic book binding (with stitching and gluing).You can also punch holes in the scrapbook with a hole punch and place it on a binder with large rings. It makes sense to think about the spring version. In short, the choice is yours.

Wedding Album: master class

So, at the first stage, you can make the album with the simplest complexity of work. To do this, you will need the following materials:

  • cardboard; 90 016 90 013 album sheets;
  • photos of the newlyweds;
  • white lace;
  • wedding decor;
  • transparent white or cream bow;
  • scissors;
  • glue;
  • white embossed paintable wallpaper;
  • threads.

First, decide on the size of the product and its theme. For example, it can be a wedding wishlist within 37 cm in height and 31 cm in width. In such albums, as a rule, not only are there wedding photos, but there are also places for notes. It is here that each of the guests present at the festive event can leave their wishes for the newlyweds. Next, take scissors, landscape sheets, cardboard and white wallpaper.

Make the appropriate measurements and cut out rectangles from them with the previously specified length and width (the number of blanks depends on how thick you plan to make the album).The basic details for your commemorative album are now complete.

Cut out the details of the product from paper

In the next step, before making a wedding album with your own hands, attach wallpaper to one of the rectangles cut from the album sheet, cut out another smaller rectangle from them. Repeat this procedure with other sheets. As a result, there should be one rectangle of wallpaper for each album sheet.

Take album sheets and glue prepared rectangles from wallpaper to each of them.Then you need to take the cardboard and insert it between the two pages, glue it. It turns out that between all the pages for the photo there will be a cardboard hidden under two album sheets (on both sides). Let the details dry.

Making the cover for the album ourselves

Continuing to make the wedding scrapbook, we start working on the cover. For this we take the following materials:

  • two rectangles made of cardboard;
  • large cut of wallpaper;
  • scissors;
  • glue.

Take a piece of cardboard and place it over the back of the wallpaper. Next, according to the format of the cardboards, cut out the wallpaper, taking into account a small margin for the ends of our future cover. You should have a large wallpaper cover with cardboard boxes attached to it on both sides and a small vertical gap between them.

In the next step, take a piece of cardboard and cut a thin long strip to overlap the binding and glue it. Do the same with the previously attached two cardboard rectangles.

Carefully smooth the excess corners and glue from the inside. Let the cover dry and only then proceed with its design. By following all the steps in sequence, very soon you will learn how to make your wedding albums using different materials and techniques.

Designing the cover for the album

Designing the cover is a key moment in the whole process of making an album. Therefore, it is very important to do everything right here. To this end, first look at the front of the cover, define its center.It is in it that you can place a photo of the newlyweds. In this case, the photo can be either located along the entire perimeter of the upper part of the cover, or capture only half of it.

For example, you have chosen a full-length photo of young people. Glue it over the top of the cover. In the next step, take a few stencils. For example, it can be hearts, wedding rings, pigeons or flowers. Stick stencils over the top, bottom or sides of the photo. Done right, you have a beautiful wedding album.Scrapbooking is a unique art that allows you to create exclusive products with your own hands.

Take the lace and carefully glue it below and above under the photo. Next, you should take a bow, sew it with threads, making a kind of accordion and glue it around the entire perimeter of the photo. Above or below the photo, you can also glue a ready-made inscription in the spirit of “The first chapter of a love story” and the initials of the newlyweds.

In this case, it is up to you to design the second side of the album or not.For example, it can be a beautiful stencil of two people hugging, hearts, pigeons or flowers.

However, if you do decide to design the back of the album, remember that it should not visually prevail over the main front. We will tell you about how wedding albums look inside.

Decorating the inner part of the album

The next step will be decorating the inner part of the album. To do this, carefully fold all the album sheets dry from glue and prepare decorative paraphernalia.Place one flat paper napkin on each sheet of paper. They can be purchased ready-made or made independently from small pieces of paper using a special hole punch capable of creating holes in curly arches (as a result, lace is obtained).

Embossed plaster figures, for example, in the form of angels, can be stuck on top of the lace. You can decorate with openwork lace made with threads and a crochet hook, with half beads on a sticky base. In a word, we must not only prepare a place for a future photograph, but also make an original background or frame for it.This is how wedding albums are created.

We connect the parts and make the binding

At the end of the work, we got a finished cover and sheets for photographs. In order for our album to take on the real look of a book, it is necessary to combine all the details and make a binding. What does that require? For this purpose, take thread and glue. Stack the inside of the scrapbook. Take the threads and use a needle to sew all the prepared leaves. To do this, it is better to take them in 2-3 pieces.

When all the leaves are stitched, take the glue, apply it to a small strip (lies exactly in the middle of the cover) and glue it. After everything is dry, the cover will adhere firmly to the inside of the album. Your wedding album is ready. Scrapbooking is a technique in which you can create unique wedding accessories with your own hands. An album like this can be the perfect gift or the first step towards your limitless creative career.

Blog March 25, 20176465 ​​

Like many photographers, I create beautiful high-quality albums for my newlyweds that will tell the story of the wedding day in great detail and become a real family heirloom for a couple.

When making up layouts, I pay a lot of attention to details, emotions and composition of shots, it is important that each spread is a complete episode of the wedding day. To a large extent, I use joint photographs of the bride and groom for the book. Of course, to create a full-fledged volumetric story, I also add photographs with guests: emotional shots from training camps, a ceremony or a banquet. But still, the main emphasis is on joint photographs, because first of all it is a story about the love of two heroes.

    Computer technologies allow you to create almost any design for a wedding photobook. Don’t know what you want? You can always look at examples on the net or from your photographer and sort out your desires.

    First of all, you need to decide in what order and what pictures you would like to see in the album. Currently, several standard options have been formed, however, you can always make your own changes to them.

    Ideas for the placement of pictures:

    • The progress of the wedding “in order
      “. This method of posting a photo is the most common. The book begins with photographs of the bride and groom by the cathedral, and then follows the script. The last photos, as a rule, with a wedding cake or against a background of fireworks;
    • Love Story
      .Such an album covers a wider range of the couple’s relationship. The book begins with the first joint pictures, after – the engagement, exciting moments of pre-wedding preparation, the wedding day itself, sweet honey days and, as a happy ending to the album, the pregnant wife;
    • Wedding books
      can include
      pictures of parents
      newlyweds, close friends and witnesses;
    • The album will acquire a special energy if you include in it wishes of loved ones
    • Highlights
      should be allocated
      more space
      in the wedding book.For example, highlight one or two spreads for pictures from the exciting moment of marriage, wedding, the first dance of the newly-made spouses, or removing the veil.

    After that it is worth thinking over the style and background for the wedding book. Albums made in the style of a wedding celebration and designed in the same color scheme will look good. Moreover, the cover of a wedding book should definitely tune in to a given mood.

    Photographers suggest paying attention to the following design options:

    • “Like in a movie”, especially this style of the book is suitable for a photo from a thematic wedding based on your favorite movie;
    • A note of humor;
    • Gentle mood;
    • Thematic design, for example, a book in a nautical style or in shades of orange, will highlight the theme of the past celebration.

    A wedding is the most significant event in the life of every married couple. Time goes by and many interesting moments that happened at the wedding are forgotten, but you want to remember them for a very long time. Wedding photos help refresh your memory. Leafing through the wedding album, we recall not only bright events, but also interesting little things that amused the newlyweds and wedding guests. You can buy a finished album. Or you can do it by decorating it with themed cards and characteristic accessories.

    In this article I will tell you how to make a beautiful and informative photo album about your wedding and all the events that took place there.

    For a handmade wedding photo album you will need:

    Blank album; photos from your wedding; a copy of the marriage registration certificate; a story about a wedding; postcards presented by guests.

    We buy a ready-made album for creativity.

    Currently, the range of photo albums is very large – small and large in size, rectangular and round in shape, thin and thick in volume.All albums are divided into two main types: adhesive-backed albums and albums with pockets.

    Photo albums with an adhesive backing allow you to arrange photos of various sizes on one page. You can post both small and large photos. But they have one drawback – over time, the photos from the glue can turn yellow.

    Another option is albums with pockets. They are convenient because they have room for comments. However, in this case, your imagination in the design of the album “will not be overclocked”, since you can mark up photos in such an album only of one format.

    How to arrange a wedding photo album with your own hands?

    Sort all photos in chronological order and choose the best ones for the album.

    Artificially aged photographs and photographs in black and white look original, creating an effect.

    You can alternate the arrangement of staged and random shots in the album. Such an idea will refresh the album and preserve the memories of the wonderful atmosphere of the wedding celebration.Also try to make a few frames in the form of a collage.

    Scrapbooking is a popular technique for decorating wedding albums.

    The cover can be decorated in different ways. For example, stick the most beautiful photo of the bride and groom, embroider the names of the newlyweds with threads or ribbons, additionally decorate the cover of the photo album with textile hearts, beads, rhinestones, satin ribbons. Also, on the first page of the album, you can stick a wedding invitation, note important facts about the behavior of the wedding (your names, date of celebration, wedding venue, etc.)etc.). Place a beautifully designed copy of your marriage certificate on the back cover.

    Write a story about your wedding and break it down into smaller chunks. The resulting excerpts can be used as comments on images.

    It is not at all necessary to place the photo in a strictly vertical or horizontal angle. Move them to different positions and, perhaps, you will find the best option. It is advisable to place photos of the bride with the groom, photos of parents and witnesses on different pages.Also, do not forget to include in the album the postcards that guests gave you. At the very end of the photo album, it will not be superfluous to write concluding comments.

    It’s a good idea to place guests’ wishes in the album. To do this, you need to ask the invitees in advance to write them on specially prepared leaves.

    Be sure to keep a digital copy of your photos in case you lose your photo album or spoil your photos.

    Magnetic attachments

    sheets are dense paper or cardboard sheets covered with a special adhesive mixture.From above, the sheet is covered with a thin film, which is also impregnated with this mixture. To place a photo on a page, you need to carefully separate the film from the sheet, place the photo on it and cover it again, avoiding air bubbles between it and the sheet. The main advantage of such albums is that the photo on the page can be placed at any angle.

    IMPORTANT TO KNOW: Wedding with a foreign groom – what are the special features?

    Unfortunately, magnetic sheets are not ideal for use: in inappropriate lighting, the thin film that covers the photographs glares and interferes with viewing the picture, and the adhesive solution with which the photographs are fixed dries out over time and gets dirty from dust particles penetrating under the film.This can cause premature yellowing of photographs.

    for scrapbooking or gifts and photo glue; a stapler, curly scissors and a curly hole punch also do not hurt; can be purchased – stickers, decorative stamps.Wear gloves if your photos are glossy to avoid fingerprints.

    Divide the pictures into pages, choose the background and design for each page. Add collected add-ons to snapshots. And tune in to a calm creative wave. Each thematic page should be different from the previous one: a dance of the newlyweds against the background of a sheet of music, a walk around the city – flowers or snowflakes (according to the season). Place photos in the most prominent places so that decorative elements complement them, but do not cover them.If you need to place several pictures on the page, you can stick them with shutters, accordions, like blinds or volumetric postcards. How to make a wedding album for photos with your own hands, see the video.

    Leave some space for journaling – signatures and texts. These can be famous aphorisms about love and family, or just a short story – a commentary on the picture. More often they write texts by hand with pens or markers. Choose colored pens with ink that does not fade or smudge.You can also choose a beautiful font in Photoshop, having issued the inscriptions in the same beautiful frames – vignettes, cut out and pasted on the page. Just do not overload the page with decorations – nevertheless, reading signatures is much more interesting than looking at flowers.

    If the style of the wedding was about a certain topic, this must be reflected in the album design. For a nautical wedding, the album should be in turquoise colors with shells, fish, starfish. For a classic wedding, you can use both seasonal decoration and vintage, for example, antique, with aged paper and decor.

    For decoration, you can use everything that is left after the wedding or bought specifically for the album: lace, embroidery, beads, buttons, sequins, silk ribbons, stickers. Do you know how and love to draw? Add small drawings, patterns in the corners, curly frames. A machine-stitched frame is another popular scrapbooking technique.

    An interesting and lively album is obtained by the type of a children’s book – a clamshell. You can add several secret pockets, large elements (city map, banquet hall layout with seats) are folded and glued to the page.

    Are you looking for a big album? Then on the first page, make a cover page with a description of the event, then there may be a content. The cover should be left for last, when you have already definitely decided on the style and color scheme, because it should reflect its contents on other pages, and even successfully fit into the interior of the room – you hardly want to keep such beauty in a safe. If you manage to arrange the cover in light colors, you need a cover, because you won’t be able to wash it. The photo will suggest ideas for do-it-yourself wedding albums.

    The wedding photo album is a family heirloom that reminds of one of the happiest days in life. You will show it to your children and grandchildren. The album should be durable and beautiful. It is rather difficult to arrange such an album with your own hands: it is a thorough, painstaking work that requires a lot of taste and a lot of time. But it is possible. We will tell you how to decorate your wedding photo album in a stylish and original way.

    A separate direction of arts and crafts with a somewhat dissonant name scrapbooking is responsible for the creation of unusual photo albums.Recently, this trend has become very popular: hand-made albums are created on the occasion of birthdays, anniversaries and other holidays, as well as just to give a decent frame to the most important and favorite pictures.

    To design an original wedding album using the scrapbooking technique, you will need a lot of tools and materials. All of them are expensive, so if you do not plan to create hand-made albums, postcards and photo frames in the future, it makes sense to borrow them or get by with a minimal set.You can buy everything you need in specialized stores for creativity. Large stationery stores usually have a large selection too.

    So, the most necessary tools include a cutting mat with a centimeter grid, a clerical knife (it is better to buy a quality knife in a hardware store, a very useful thing on the household), scissors, a wide ruler, better metal, tweezers, a hole punch (exist also special curly hole punches, but this is the next level).

    In addition to tools, you need materials from which you can create the design of a wedding album. This is, first of all, paper. You’d be surprised how many varieties of paper there are. Firstly, it is cardstock – thick paper, from which it is fashionable to make an album cover, a postcard or a photo frame. Density and colors vary. Secondly, it is decorative paper: jewelry is made from it, as well as the album pages themselves. Third, paper with frames, tags and other details that are cut and pasted into the album in the right places.As a rule, they are sold in sets, one sheet contains a dozen different design solutions in one style. Finally, you need to buy quality glue (regular PVA is not good, a glue gun will work well), as well as double-sided tape. A brush for applying glue also does not fit. The album can be decorated with lace, ribbons, beads, rhinestones, paper and fabric appliqués, so you should stock up on such decor in advance.

    Artificial flowers made of paper, fabric or ribbons are also suitable, as well as real ones – dried herbs, petals, inflorescences.It is also worth having acrylic outlines in different colors on hand. A variety of frames for a wedding album can also be searched on the Internet and printed on a printer, only you need to use high-quality paper.

    Now that you have everything you need, you can start learning the basics of scrapbooking. There is no one template, only a variety of techniques that you can combine based on your taste and preference. You will learn how to arrange a wedding album with your own hands from this master class, here are shown the basic techniques of page design:

    In the same technique, you can arrange a wedding album for the wishes of guests: in fact, these are items from one set, so it will be beautiful, if they are solved in a single style.

    Classic scrapbooking album is a collection of hand-designed pages and homemade covers, which are held together with ribbons, glue or otherwise. However, you can do easier: buy a beautiful wedding album with dense white pages without decor and arrange it according to your taste. Finally, the simplest option, which still leaves room for creativity and imagination, is a magnetic wedding album. Photos are attached using a magnetic adhesive film, unlike traditional photo albums, you can place pictures of any size at any angle in it.

    You can also add photos from the wedding of parents and grandparents of the bride and groom to the album, telling about the roots of the family. In the same section, you can place an artificially aged photograph of the newlyweds themselves.

    Another interesting idea is to install an instant photo booth in the wedding hall. Everyone who wishes will be photographed in it, give one picture to the newlyweds to decorate the album, and take the other for themselves.

    Where to start?

    First of all, the newlyweds should decide in what style they want to arrange an album for wedding photos.This will affect the color scheme, decoration, and the way the book is made. Next, you should step by step follow the instructions that the master class describes. Best of all, if the binding of the album is stitched: then it will become really strong and reliable. The cover should be covered with silk, leather, natural or artificial, velvet. The cover covered with white satin will look refined and tasteful, but the picture or picture on it should be selected with the most contrast. On average, an album can accommodate about sixty photos, or a little more.The album can be made circular: for this you need to punch two holes in each page with a hole punch and string the sheets onto special rings. Here it is important to calculate the place for the holes so that the composition and the photos themselves do not suffer. Such an album will be easy to leaf through on family evenings, but it will require a little more space for storage.

    Decorating a wedding album

    Creating a joint photobook is a pleasant and touching experience for lovers.If you want to decorate a wedding album with your own hands, you can give free rein to your imagination and embody design ideas to your liking. You can sew book yourself using ribbon or canvas thread, fastening the sheets together, or use a ready-made blank album, decorating it as you want.

    Before you start decorating, you need to choose the style in which it will be performed. Then prepare the necessary materials and decorations, which can be purchased at the sewing and handicraft store.Moreover, it is better to decorate not only the cover, but also every page. The album looks much more impressive, in which has invested a lot of warmth and efforts. You will be able to proudly present your work to the judgment of friends and family.

    First of all

    Before starting the cover design, you need to decide some nuances.

    • First, decide what material your cover will be made of. It must be strong, dense, and also its task is to fasten the sheets of the photo album.The density of the cover is determined by the massiveness of your album, that is, by how many photographs you want to put there. Usually there are at least 50-60 of them.
    • Secondly, you need to decide on the binding. Most of the look and style of the album will depend on him. Velvet, silk, or leather bindings are good options. It is worth noting that of all the materials listed above, it is leather that has the properties of protecting the contents of the album from dampness and bending. Also, to protect against damage to pictures in the event of a fall, many couples choose albums with an elegant forged clasp, thanks to which the album does not open when dropped, and the contents do not crumble.
    • Third, think about color. The choice of color is, of course, everyone’s choice. But it is worth choosing a color for the general style and theme of the album itself, so that it does not look motley. Thus, if you want your album to look solemn and airy, you can choose an album in white leather or satin. Also, if you plan to put a paired portrait on the cover, then you need to make sure that it does not merge with the main color of the album.

    We have listed the points that should be decided before the album design.Below you can see some photo examples of wedding covers.

    Interesting ideas for album design

    • Pages in the album can be made in different colors. Then the book will convey a sunny, bright and colorful mood;
    • Photos should be divided into several “chapters”, so that each of them contains pictures describing one event of the solemn day;
    • It is worth alternating between regular photos and images taken using different filters;
    • You can put in the album several pictures of the places where the newlyweds have been shortly before the wedding;
    • It is worth observing the chronology of events: then the album will show the mood of the entire solemn day;
    • There is no need to place many small pictures on one sheet: this will have a bad effect on the attention and mood of the one who will revise the album later;
    • It is better to make a beautiful collage out of small photographs;
    • A separate page can be allocated for the wishes of the newlyweds from the guests.

    IMPORTANT TO KNOW: A wedding in delicate colors is a beautiful fairy tale

    The design of a wedding album depends entirely on the couple’s taste. This process can be one of the first important events in family life. It all depends on the creativity and imagination of the newlyweds!

    Do not overload the pages with decor. Photo must be supplemented with decorations

    The page can contain one or more photos, designed in the form of a collage. You don’t have to post your photos in a classic style. You can fold some photos with an accordion, come up with special pockets, etc. The main thing is that photos on page are dedicated to one person or to event .

    It is imperative to revive the photo album with cheerful inscriptions and warm wishes . You can connect family and friends to write comments and memories of the wonderful wedding day of the recipients of the gift.

    Great importance is attached to the cover of the photo album . It is intended to become a real family heirloom, so you should take care of the presentability of the gift. For decoration, you can use absolutely any decorative elements. The cover is covered with fabric, leather or special paper.To give the album massiveness, the cover is complemented by a pad of padding polyester.

    Another important detail of the album – binding . It must meet not only the requirements of beauty, but also durability. Rings with eyelets will be more reliable. However, satin ribbons or decorative rope look more sophisticated.
