A wedding is supposed to be the most beautiful day of your life. Unsurprisingly, wedding photography is big business, since people want to remember and look back on this special day regularly. Usually, this is done through wedding albums. However, it is now more common for people to create a wedding photobook instead. Unfortunately for wedding photographers, but fortunately for everyday people, you can make these books quite easily yourself. But you do have to do it right!
First of all, you have to choose the theme. Naturally, a wedding theme makes sense, but you can tweak this by adding the wedding’s colors, a seasonal theme, and so on. Indeed, traditional wedding albums have the same thing included, with them being more like a scrapbook. The difference with a photobook is, however, that all the images and decorations are digital, which in turn means that they will stay looking good forever.
A monogram may sound like a cliché, it is still a really good idea. A lot of people choose miniature photobooks as wedding favors, which is a very unusual idea, and having a monogram included on those is a great idea. Since this is now such a popular favor, it is likely that your guests have already received a few of them. By adding your monogram to it, you will make sure that people remember that this particular album is yours. Plus, clichés have become clichés for a reason: because it works.
If you want to create something really fashionable and something that screams of love, then canvas prints are absolutely fantastic. You have two options here. The first is to have a canvas cover for your photobook, making it feel and look more luxurious. The second option is to pick your favorite picture and have it printed on a canvas, which you can then hang on your wall. In so doing, you can show your love for each other to the world, and be reminded of it all the time as well.

This is a really fun type of photobook idea that is becoming increasingly popular. It only works if you use a digital photobook, however, because you have to be able to doodle, make changes, and then return it to its original. You might, for instance, email people this after the wedding, as a way to say thank you for coming and being part of your special day.
If you have printed your entire wedding album as a photobook, then you do need to consider the cover as well. The canvas cover has already been mentioned, but there are other options out there as well. This is where you can really get creative as well. Some people, for instance, have used the fabric of their wedding dress as part of the cover, or the table cloth of the wedding table if they want to keep their dress intact as a souvenir.
