Just like people, wedding albums come in all sorts of shapes and every size under the sun. But all of them, no matter what they look like do the same thing; hold memories that will provide you a lifetime of memories. But a wedding album can be much more than just photos. It can help arouse all your senses and memories of a day that you will never want to forget.
Be very careful when choosing your wedding album. After all, your day was filled with wonderful memories of family, friends, love and unique happenings. You have to find an album that will keep all of those precious memories alive and allows you to feel them every time you open it. But, do not only speak to your photographer about albums. Usually they are more expensive buying it through them. Go online and see the hundreds of varieties as well as visiting department stores wedding areas. You may save quite a bit of money.
But, do not buy an album based on price alone. Finding one that is the least expensive is not always the best idea. You want a wedding album that will securely hold your photos on pages that have no acid in them. If they do, your photos will dull and yellow much more quickly, over the years. You want an album that is known for preserving your memories for you, for your children and for your children's children.
But, remember that your album can hold more than pictures. It can hold anything that contributed to the smells, sites and even sounds of your special day. For example, add a few wedding petals from your wedding flowers. They will dry beautifully. also, to remember, add a piece of any wedding fabric or tulle that you may have used during your wedding ceremony. Next to that, put one of your ceremony announcements as well as your bridal shower and wedding invitation. And to round it all out, make sure the photographer takes a picture of not only the wedding cake, but each course of the dinner as well.
Adding these items to a wedding album allows you to experience over and over, much more than just the normal photos. Although all your photos are precious and treasures to keep forever, adding the extra touches will arouse memories in you and your spouse that maybe pictures alone can not do.
