October 22nd marked our 3 month wedding anniversary & Scott and I celebrated by re-living our wedding day online. We sat down, looked at every single wedding photo on the Elegant Imagery proofs website and selected our favorite
40 60 (oops!) to make up our coffee table photo album.
Picking our top photos choices was not easy. Actually, the task might have been harder than planning our wedding all together…then again, maybe not. Regardless, it took hours for Scott and I to select what we were asked to from our photos.
Included in our photography package was the coffee table photo album and a 4×6″ print out of every single picture. As if picking a select few for the coffee table album wasn’t hard enough, I’m now on a mission to find an album to hold ALL 700+ of our printed wedding day photos.
First, let’s get something straight: I am not in any way, shape or form complaining about having a bagillion photos to pick from. Each and every single photo has been edited, optimized and is gorgeous. We are ecstatic with how they turned out and can’t wait to share some with you…
My ideal album (obviously) would be an over the top bling-ed out scrapbook style like this Florida Etsy Street Wedding Album:
what…too much for every day decor?
For our stack of photos: definitely.
Now I started thinking more on a practical level. What could hold all of our photos and allow us to display it in our home? I thought of something like this Wedding Memories Keepsake Trinket Box:
This is a unique idea and I like it, but then again I don’t. I couldn’t handle sticky finger prints on all of our wedding photos, not to mention getting them out of order.
That would drive me insane! So…what’s a girl to do???
A dictionary-sized album? Stack them up and put a big pretty bow on them like a present? Grrr.
It says it has 45 double sided page inserts, but doesn’t give details on how many photos it can hold. Pages can be “inserted or removed,” but does that mean it can hold OUR stack of photos? Hmmm…
The front of the album is
hideous not very cute…especially for wedding photos, but I think I could scrapbook that up.
Decisions, decisions. I thought the wedding planning was over?!
I think I might need some help on this one.
Any comments or suggestions are welcomed & appreciated! 🙂
