Learn More About Wedding Albums & Scrapbooks
Wedding albums and scrapbooks are both great ways to preserve the treasured memories of your big day. But, there is a difference between the two: Wedding albums usually include photos, while wedding scrapbooks contain photos, memorabilia, keepsakes, stickers, and other items that tell a story about your wedding day. Browse Etsy to find a variety of and scrapbooks to help organize your special day’s most memorable moments.
When it comes to your wedding photo album, you’ll want to create a cherished keepsake you can use to relive your wedding day’s happiest moments. Here are a few tips to help you put together your perfect wedding album.
- Choose your photos. If you’re having trouble choosing between hundreds of images, divide up your wedding day and arrange your photos chronologically. Once you have the photos you want, you can determine the size of the album.
- Select a wedding album. Try to choose a wedding album that matches the theme of your wedding. Etsy sellers make beautiful albums in a variety of colors, styles, and materials. Did you celebrate an outdoorsy wedding? Go with a rustic wedding album with wood engravings and embellishments. Was your wedding formal and elegant? Choose a white or ivory leather wedding album embossed with script. You can even work with some designers on Etsy to craft a custom wedding album that’s as special as your love story.
- Create sections: Creating sections in your album can help tell the story of your wedding day. Include sections such as moments leading up to the ceremony, the ceremony itself, the reception, and post-reception activities like dancing and evening entertainment. Be sure to include as many guests and family as possible and mix it up with posed and candid shots to keep your album both sentimental and interesting.
Like wedding albums, wedding scrapbooks should be a reflection of your special day. In addition to photos, you can add all sorts of things to make your scrapbook truly memorable. Include the engagement announcement, save-the-date card or wedding invitation, place cards, pressed flowers from the wedding bouquet and groom’s boutonniere, lace or some trimming from the wedding gown, and the wedding reception menu, among other items. Etsy shops sell wedding scrapbook supplies such as labels and wedding scrapbook stickers to add an artful touch.
