Making a Wedding Scrapbook

Guest Author - Michelle McVaney

A wedding is a turning point in each man and woman's life. A scrapbook is a perfect way to preserve those memories! Not only can you create a scrapbook to celebrate the event for the happy couple, but you can make smaller scrapbooks for family members and close friends. Scrapbooks make perfect gifts!

Here are some tips on starting a wedding scrapbook:

Choose a theme
Whether it's black and white elegance, teddy bears, Victorian beauty, country pride or any other theme, this helps tie the pages together. Find great embellishments or make your own that reinforce your theme and have some fun! Usually a color theme is easy with a wedding, the Bride has already chosen her own color theme, and building on that makes it so simple.

Use the Ceremony for Inspiration
Most weddings have some music and usually a kiss! Songs are wonderful for some romantic journaling, and also the Kiss is a wonderful moment to scrapbook. Use the different parts of the ceremony to scrapbook this special day!

Use Formal and Casual Shots
Every wedding has those all-standing-together photos. They're a tradition. But your children and grandchildren will also love seeing you in a more casual pose, giving each other hugs, relaxing at the end of a long day, dancing and enjoying yourselves. When grandchildren look through photo albums they don't learn much from those staring-at-the-camera posed shots, but they learn an amazing amount by seeing that grandma loved to twist and grandpa had a ready smile.

Label the Photos
Be sure that the photos all list who is in them and how they are known to or related to the couple! This is a historical record, and it's amazing how quickly people change. You might not recognize some of these people in a few years, because they've grown beards or lost weight.

Even if you were married many years ago, get out those old photos create a scrapbook. Journal everything that you can remember about that special day and ask your significant other to give you a little help as well with any memories they might have.
