We know that your wedding album is a big deal and you want it done right… you want to work with professionals who will deliver your dream album at top quality. At BrideBox, it is important to us that you truly fall in love with your wedding album, which is why we make it easy to customize your album and provide full customer support to answer any questions you may have along the way. The following are the most important things you should know about your wedding album.
What the pages will look like.
Most wedding albums are generally flush mount, which means that each photo is printed individually and then transferred to strong and durable cardstock. You have several options of what material your pages can be—glossy, lustre, or matte. A glossy finish has the pages looking shiny and typically brings out bright colors wonderfully. A lustre finish will not be as shiny as glossy and therefore reduces glare and fingerprints. Matte pages are least the least shiny of the three and are a common professional choice.
What the format will look like.
You can get creative to keep every page alive and interesting. Some brides choose to stick with consistent formatting but most play around with different layout options. Your album can and should look however you want it to, whether that means a collage of photos or mostly two-page spreads of your favorite select pictures. There are so many formatting options to try out.
What the cover will look like.
Now that you have a general idea of what the inside of the album may look like, you might be wondering what the cover will look like. Like the rest of your album preferences, you have several different options for your album cover. You can choose anything from a metallic, leather or photo cover, or even combine these options with a leather cover overlapped with your favorite wedding photo.
What the binding will look like.
Each BrideBox wedding album is individually handcrafted, which means that we make sure that each and every album is flawless. The pages are manually placed onto a thick cardstock and then attached to a hand-cut leather cover. Follow this link to watch a video of a BrideBox wedding album being created.
What the album cost will look like.
If you get your wedding album done through a photographer, it will generally cost you between $1,000-$1,500. At BrideBox, we believe that professional quality wedding photo albums should not cost you an arm and a leg, which is why we are determined to provide the same or higher quality albums for a fraction of the cost. Each album will vary depending on the chosen features, but click here for a general wedding photo album price estimate.
What album preservation will look like.
Taking good care of your wedding album will assure that it stays in good condition for a long time to come. Since high temperatures can cause the pages to dry out, we recommend keeping your album away from humidity and direct sunlight. Furthermore, keeping dirt off of your album by wiping it with a dry cloth will also help its preservation. The best way to keep your album looking as great as it did the day you got it is by storing it in a protective case or cover when you aren’t flipping through it.
