How do I make a wedding album

Wedding album for the best memories - comparison of providers, information & tips

The wedding album is certainly THE memento of your lavish wedding party. So that you can still enjoy it in years to come, we would like to give you some tips and ideas for designing your wedding photo album.

With some wedding photographers, the wedding album is automatically offered as well. Such high-quality wedding albums are of course made very professionally - just ask. If your photographer doesn't offer this, then you've come to the right place!

We have divided this article about the wedding album into the following areas:

1. General tips: Create a photo album for the wedding
2. Designing a wedding album - comparison of providers
3. Buy tips for the wedding album (to stick in)



1. General tips: Create a photo album for the wedding

In addition to the many tips, we want to give you two special tips in advance if your wedding is not over. Then you will find the general ideas and photo book examples.

Get ideas for funny wedding pictures

In addition to your classic bridal couple photo shoot, a few funny photos with groomsmen and guests should not be missing in the wedding album! You can find a lot of inspiration and examples in our detailed article.


Collect cell phone pictures of the guests - that's how it really works

Collecting and sharing the wedding pictures is actually very easy if you have the appropriate tools. We can recommend a wedding photo app that can be easily used by your guests and thus all pictures are automatically collected in one place. So you don't have to run after the pictures after the wedding ...


Sort out the pictures for the wedding album well beforehand

Even if you have hundreds of beautiful pictures of you as a bride and groom and your wedding party - less is more! The photo album should not be a boring string of all pictures with the same motif, but rather represent a reminder of the most beautiful moments of your wedding.

Limit yourself to the best pictures as much as possible, because then the photo album will be a great memento that you will always enjoy looking at.


Leave space for small memorabilia in the wedding photo album.

It is a great idea to leave a few pages free at the end of the wedding album to stick in small memorabilia, such as:

  • Wedding invitation
  • Church notebook
  • Antenna loop
  • Table and menu card
  • dried flower of the table decoration
  • Fabric swatch of the wedding dress
  • special congratulations, etc.

Alternatively, you can keep the photo album in a special box and put the memorabilia in there.


The bigger the photo album for the wedding, the better

Wedding pictures only come into their own in full size. However, you should make sure that the photos were taken in a very high resolution so that the quality is still right in the end.

Most photo book providers have a traffic light system that shows whether the quality of the images is sufficient for the size of the photo album. For the cell phone pictures of your guests, you should probably do without large images (e.g. on the double page) and then simply create a collage.


Design a wedding book - flaylat binding and different image sizes

Browsing through your wedding album should be interesting and fun because you will look at it often and you will definitely show it to other people. With different image sizes (e.g. with individual large photo motifs on one page) and also cropped or square images you bring excitement to your wedding album.

If you want to create a very professional-looking wedding album, make sure that there is no bulge in the middle of the pages and no misalignment in the binding (as with most photo books). Better to use a photo book in which the pages lie flat (layflat flat binding) and thus pictures can look wonderful over the entire page!


Design wedding book pages by theme

Make sure that the pictures fit together thematically on the double pages and that the timing is right. If you want to record everything in a wedding photo book, then you can, for example, start with the preparations for the wedding or the JGA pictures and the album with the Trash-the-dress Exit photos.


Wedding album as a gift idea

You can then easily reproduce the wedding album created online for other people (parents, in-laws, groomsmen, etc.) if necessary. The wedding photo book is also ideal as a thank you for the help with the celebration or as a Christmas present.

It is great when you always look at the wedding photo album together with your family on the future wedding days and indulge in memories ...

Thank you booklet in the form of a wedding journal

If you want to give your wedding photo book to many guests, a thank you booklet is recommended. Bound like a magazine, it gives a stylish and comprehensive review of your party.

In addition to the most beautiful photos, you can also capture the most beautiful experiences and moments. A great memory for everyone!

2. Design a wedding album - comparison of providers

A photo book as a wedding album looks particularly beautiful and you can easily create it online. In some cases, software is also available for download so that you can design the wedding photo book even without an internet connection.

You don't necessarily have to have a creative streak: Some photo book providers even provide backgrounds for the wedding photo album and you can easily create a wedding photo book with great designs with an automatic creation mode. In most cases, almost no design knowledge is necessary.

Most of the time, the photo book software is so intuitive that you can understand the applications and get started in just a few minutes. Often there is also a photo book assistant with the help of which you can automatically design the photo album and thus save a lot of time.
