Creating a scrapbook is a wonderful way to create a personalized memorial of your wedding that you will cherish for the rest of your life. More than just a photo album, a wedding scrapbook can truly tell your unique story and illustrate the special relationship between you and your new spouse. Here are some wedding scrapbook ideas for getting the most out of your book.
Get a beautiful look by using a variety of materials that suggest different textures. Layer materials that give the suggestion of silk, lace, tulle and other fabrics suggesting a bridal theme. Place pictures on top of these fabrics to create a fun wedding theme to carry throughout your scrapbook.
Add floral details and stickers on edges and corners of photos to emphasize the layers and keep your scrapbook from looking flat.
Use Your Colors
Choosing paper and background patterns in your bridal colors is the perfect way to keep your scrapbook consistent from start to finish and to make your scrapbook unique to your wedding day. For example, find frames and accents that match the colors of your bridesmaids’ dresses or your flowers.
You can also find background colors and patterns that are reminiscent of the fabrics used in your dress.
Mixed Posed Shots with Candid Shots
You will definitely want to use the beautiful posed shots taken by your photographer. This will ensure that you include pictures of your parents and other important players on your wedding day. Mix these posed pictures with candid shots taken by your photographer and also by guests.
Candid pictures give your wedding scrapbook a comfortable, inviting feeling that allows people browsing your book to feel as if they were guests at your wedding. Pictures taken in unexpected moments show guests and your wedding party having a wonderful time and celebrating your special day.
Introduce Your Wedding Party
Create a tribute to your wedding party in your scrapbook. Use a picture of each bridesmaid, groomsman, flower girl or ring bearer with a little bit of text about that person and the person’s relationship to you. One day you will cherish this information about how these special people made you feel.
If you are close to your officiant, florist or other wedding vendor be sure to include that information as well.
Include Your Invitation
In addition to your photos, use your invitations and other important wedding items such as a program or special prayers from your ceremony. Treat these items like photographs, placing them on a background and highlighting them with beautiful textured paper and stickers.
Your invitation makes a lovely addition to your wedding scrapbook because it is not only a pretty reminder of your wedding style and theme but also includes information about the time and place of your ceremony. This is something you will want included in your album.
A scrapbook album is the perfect choice for highlighting each wonderful moment of your wedding day. A scrapbook gives you options that a traditional photo album simply doesn’t provide, such as the opportunity to use your colors and special fabrics from your wedding day. With a little creativity, you can have a beautiful reminder of your wedding day that you will go back to again and again.
