Save Money on Your Wedding Story: Do-It-Yourself Photo Books from Freeze Frame Publishing!

Today I have a guest post from Laura at Freeze Frame Publishing. She gives some great ideas for creating DIY wedding memory books.

How will you remember your wedding story?
Your wedding story is just as important as your wedding day.

How did you and your future spouse meet? What was your courtship like? Who are the friends and family important to your story? Were there showers and parties held in your honor? Where and when did you exchange your vows? Who shared your day with you? Did you take a honeymoon?

With a little pre-planning YOU can create customized photo books commemorating YOUR wedding story.

You have several opportunities to put your creativity to use building a photo book series to chronicle your wedding.

Some ideas for personally created Wedding Story photo books:

1. Guest Book:
In addition to having a record of all of the attendees you will have a memorable record of some of the items used in the wedding as well as places where the events were held. Leave plenty of room for signatures and have plenty of Sharpie-style pens available for signing.

2. Attendants’ photo books:
Photo books make terrific “Thank-You” gifts! You can create:
· several copies of one book of shared memories for all of your attendants.
· personalized books with a common shared memories section for each attendant.
· individual photo books for each attendant.

3. Pre-Wedding photo books.
Blend your histories! Dedicate a few pages to the Bride as a child, a few pages to the Groom as a child, a few pages to you as a couple. This book might also serve as a wonderful gift for your parents.

4. Wedding photo book.
Perhaps your photographer offers a professionally created wedding book. You can also create your own made of pictures your guests have taken of your wedding and reception. Have lots of cameras available throughout your wedding day events. Place cameras on tables and let your guests snap pictures of your big day from their vantage points. Provide collection centers for the cameras near the exit areas when your guests leave. Have these pictures burned to CDs or other digital media. You now have many pictures, taken by your guests, to choose from as you create your own Wedding Photo Book

5. Honeymoon photo book.
This would complete your Wedding Story Photo Book Collection. Your honeymoon is your first vacation with your new spouse. Take lots of pictures! If you travel with a laptop, you can create your honeymoon photo book with Freeze Frame Publishing’s software while on the plane home. You do not need internet access to frame your memories while using our FREE software. You can even order your photo book while waiting in the terminal for your luggage! Can’t wait to show your friends and family? There’s a “share online” feature that allows you to email a virtual honeymoon photo book to your friends and family.
