It can be a lot of fun to pull your wedding album off the shelf to take a trip down memory lane on your anniversary, and putting it together thoughtfully can really help to maximize your nostalgia. Since you probably haven’t put together a wedding album before it can be a little difficult to get things just right on your first try. Fortunately, there are some tips that I’ll share with you today that will make putting together your wedding album a simple feat that you can cherish for a lifetime.

Pick Your Favorite Photos

One common mistake that a lot of couples make when choosing the photos for their wedding album is selecting what they think should be included rather than choosing their favorite pictures. You obviously want a good variety of pictures and need something to commemorate each of the vital parts of the wedding, but that doesn’t mean you need to choose photos that you don’t like simply because of the content. Always remember that the wedding photo album is primarily for you, so you should always choose the moments you want to remember the most.

Keep Things in Order

When you flip through your wedding album, it should be laid out in a chronological order. Not only will this make the most sense when you’re looking for a specific photo one day, but it will also help you relive the magic of your wedding since it will be setup like a timeline of the event. You don’t have to keep them in order when the photo was actually take, but you should group things in events like the ceremony, reception, cake cutting ceremony etc. to keep all the appropriate photos grouped in a logical fashion.

Do It Sooner Than Later

One thing you want to avoid is waiting too long to put together your wedding album. Ideally, you want to do it when the memory of the day is fresh in your mind so you can organize the photos as logically as possible. You’d be surprised how quickly you start to forget the little details of your wedding, so putting together your photo album as soon as you return from your honeymoon is usually the best option.

Hire a Pro

Putting together your own wedding album can be time consuming and intimidating, so many couples choose to hire a professional to handle the job for them. There are plenty of websites like that have professional album designers to setup your scrapbook for you. All you need to do is send them your photos and they’ll put together a design for you. Once you approve it by working with the designer, they’ll ship it out to you in just 3-4 weeks. Overall, hiring a professional is going to be the least stressful and most efficient way to have your wedding album put together.

Though it may seem like an afterthought, the photos in your wedding album will be your direct line to the memories of your big day for decades to come. If you take your time and put together your wedding album properly, with or without the help of a professional; you’ll be able to relive your wedding day whenever you choose for the rest of your lives.
