How to Take Charge of Your Wedding Album

Posted January 10, 2014 | 62 Comments

Hi, loves! Happy Friday! Question: what’s the number one thing that every couple needs after the wedding but many don’t ever “get around to” doing? Putting together a photo album! We love ourselves some technology, but technology makes it SO easy to be lazy. I mean, having photos on flash drives or stored on your computer (instead of actual prints) makes it easier than ever to leave them as-is. You may think you’ll get to it someday, but someday is today. We’re showing you how to take charge of your wedding album whether you’ve been married for a few years, you’re just returning from your honeymoon, or you’re planning your wedding (and thinking ahead). We want you to show off those gorgeous photos, place them in a custom photo album with stunning designs, and turn it into a masterpiece you’ll love to revisit for years to come. To see what we mean, all you have to do is take a peek at the handmade wedding albums over at Indigo Album Design. Talk about gorgeous. And, they’re being oh-so-gracious and have offered to give away two giveaway prizes! What’s up for grabs? You’ll have to read on to find out…

Unlike a wedding album printed at a big box chain or online retailer, these are handmade wedding albums. This means each book is lovingly bound, customized, and the book maker has carefully reviewed the pages to look perfect.
