Our Wedding Album

Wow, I can’t believe this is the last post about my wedding… I guess it’s about time since the wedding was almost eight (!) months ago, but the time really just flew by.

So, the final piece of my wedding pie (mmm…) is the album. When I was in the planning stage I saw lots of options, but they all seemed to be SUPER expensive. At the time I just couldn’t commit to spending $1,000 plus on something I felt I didn’t need right away. I figured I would just wait until I had saved enough and buy it post-wedding.

Then I found out about Blurb – amazing. It’s a website for anyone that wants to make any kind of book, but it seems like most people that use it are making photography-heavy books. Intriguing, right? So, I downloaded the software (it’s free, another big plus) and figured I’d just play around.

Well, I ended up making the wedding album of my dreams on Blurb. And I paid less than $100 for it. And it looks GOOD (if I do say so myself!). Check it out and let me know what you think:

The cool thing about Blurb is that you can make your own page layouts or use the ones they already have set up (there are tons).

You can pick the type of cover you want – a hardcover with either a dust jacket or an image printed right on it (we opted for the dust jacket because I wasn’t sure how much would get cut off and Brian’s head is very close to the top of the image on our cover… nobody wants a headless groom).

I didn’t have any expectations about what my wedding album would be like, so I love the way this turned out… but I could see someone that flipped through their parents album on a daily basis growing up wanting a more traditional album. What do you think?

Now that my wedding recaps are over, I wanted to reach out to you guys to see if there was anything I missed. Did you see a picture and wonder what the heck was going on? Do you have a burning question about one of my vendors? Do you want to know more about the bridal party’s attire? Do you want to know what my something old, something new, something borrowed something blue? Ask away! I’m happy to answer any questions about my wedding!

You can find all of my previous wedding recap posts here. I have loved reliving every moment here on the blog, thank you so much for reading along!
