Create A Wedding Scrapbook

Once you have seen, approved and ordered your wedding photos, it is time for a Wedding Scrapbook.

Unfortunately, over time certain specifics of your wedding may be forgotten. But if your photographer took a photo of almost every moment of the wedding, you can better hold on to these memories by scrapbooking your most beautiful photos. Your wedding scrapbook can be as simple or as extravagant as you would

Tips for A Great Wedding Scrapbook

If you prefer a complex collage, over a simple layout, finding the perfect color scheme will make your wedding photos glow.

1. Get organized. Of the many wedding scrapbook tips you can get, this is most important. Scrapbooking projects usually take a lot of planning, from choosing which photos to print, to choosing color schemes and figuring out how to tie everything together. Starting with a theme can really help. Perhaps what made your wedding dress gorgeous was the remarkable lace. Find pages and embellishments that remind you of lace. Or maybe you loved the Jamaican sands of your honeymoon. Whatever visual from your big day sticks out in your mind, go with it. And don’t be afraid of white cardstock. It allows for a simple base where you can add just enough embellishment so that it is not overkill.

2. Often, simple is better. In fact, many scrapbookers prefer white cardstock. This allows them to focus the page more on the content, instead of just creating art for art’s sake. Their edding scrapbooking ideas can be more fully expressed by inserting creative journal entries that add substance to the art. Although headlines can be useful, if they are repetitive or obvious, you may find yourself wishing that you had written more. Write about the little boy who was dancing around you and your father. Or share that horrified feeling you got when your menstrual cramps started just as you were about to walk down the aisle. And speaking of simple, one of the biggest regrets scrapbookers have are their early obsessions with cutting shapes out of pictures. Keeping to basic rectangles and ovals are timeless. And please, avoid overusing patterned scissors! Just be aware of yourself and be willing to critique. Would adding something truly add something or is it just overkill?

3. If you love the way some scrapbook pages turned out, repeat them! Often people believe that each page has to be an original idea. This is not so. Keeping the basic designs but just changing the photos and the stickers will just give you another page to love!

4. The option to buy wedding scrapbook embellishments are endless! Make sure you go shopping with a list and a budget. Stick with it and only splurge if you find something that is especially important to you! And be careful about getting caught up in one idea. If you are especially into roses, you will find tons of options that go with roses. Remember that you will probably only want a few pages with roses, so make sure that is what you buy for.

5. You do not have to include every photo you have in your wedding scrapbook. A great page will have two or three great photos. Of course you do not want to throw the rest of the photos out, so make sure you date them and put them in a photo file.

6. Have fun. Often, new scrapbookers let the intimidation of creating a wedding scrapbook outweigh the inspiration. Do not let this happen. You will learn as you go and will grow to love the pages that you are not so proud of, since they mark a point in your progression. Make something that means something special to you and you cannot go wrong.
