Just Married: Personalizing Your Wedding Photo Book

This article was written by Jen Causey and originally appeared on Something Turquoise.

As a DIY bride, you can feel a little let down and lackluster once your wedding is over but cheer up because the fun is just beginning! You will absolutely love the process of making your own premium wedding photo book to cherish your day. From the double-thick, premium professional-grade paper pages to the storytelling styles, premium designs, and embellishments, these albums are stunning. They can be a more affordable option than a photographer’s album, and extra special because you get to create it yourself. Shutterfly also sells a whole host of other personalized gifts that are perfect for your new home as Mr. + Mrs. and we’re showcasing our favorites below!

Premium Photo Book Heaven

I honestly can’t say enough about these beautiful, custom photo books. I’m not sure if I like the book, or the experience of making the book more! I absolutely love playing around with all of Shutterfly’s features, making my books and the story I’m telling with them, just perfect.

I created this gorgeous album using my good friend Ashley’s wedding photos and had such a fun time sifting through all her beautiful images, picking the perfect ones to tell her story of marrying Adam.

The Lay-flat Pages

One of my favorite details is the seamless, layflat pages – nothing is lost in the fold with these beauties! Just look how flat they fold, which ensures that all full spread photos look amazing. The pages of these books are extra thick too, making them look and feel much more expensive than they are.

Custom Gifts For Your New Home

Nothing will excite a new Mrs. like ordering special, custom things for her new home. Kick those “back from the honeymoon blues” with something pretty and personalized. Consider custom champagne flutes or a beautiful personalized candle with a wedding photo.
