DIY Your Quality Wedding Photo Album in 5 Easy Steps — unbridely

Step 1: Select the Right Online Platform for Your Wedding Photo Album

We want this to be as simple as possible, right? No tech-glitches, painfully slow websites or poor quality results, thanks!

Choosing the right online platform for creating your wedding album is essential for a seamless, stress-free experience. Look for platforms that offer user-friendly interfaces, a range of customization options, and high-quality printing services.

Make sure you also consider the different pricing options, availability of a wide range of design templates, and positive customer reviews to find the platform that best suits you and your needs.

We love MILK Book’s online Design Studio for creating a wedding photo album.

Not only do they offer traditional photo albums with thick, weighty board pages, but they also have wedding photo books and wedding magazines (a brilliant gift for parents and looks awesome on your coffee table too) – meaning you can choose the format that’s right for you based on your personality, needs and budget.

With their intuitive interface and user-friendly tools, designing your wedding keepsake is an enjoyable and ideal post-wedding experience to share with your new spouse.

Plus, MILK Books only use premium, archival-quality materials, ensuring your wedding photo album will stand the test of time and can be passed down as a cherished family heirloom.

Step 2: Upload and Organise Your Photos

Organising your wedding photos before you start designing, will make the creation process much smoother.

Gather all your wedding photos and organise them in digital folders for easy access.

There are a few different ways you can group them.

You could arrange them in one folder in chronological order (as the day occurred from morning to night) or divide them further into separate folders to distinguish the different parts of your special day.

For example: Getting Ready; Ceremony; Wedding Party Portraits; and Reception.

Consider whether you want to include as many photos as possible, or if you just want a curated collection of your favourite snaps from the day. Make sure that all photos you’ve got are in high resolution to maintain the clarity and detail in your album (check with your professional wedding photographer, if you’re unsure).

Here are some key moments we think every wedding photo album should include:

  • Setting shots (think about setting the scene for your wedding photo album much like a movie, the landscape, building, room etc.)

  • Getting ready

  • Wedding stationery (your save the date, invitation, ceremony program, menu etc.)

  • Wedding attire (bride’s dress/attire, shoes, accessories, suits etc.)

  • Jewellery (wedding bands, engagement ring/s, wedding watch, necklace or earrings)

  • Ceremony space and your guests gathering

  • Reaction shots (as you see each other for the first time)

  • Walking down the aisle

  • Exchanging of vows

  • First kiss

  • Newlyweds

  • Family portraits

  • Couple portraits

  • Reception decor

  • Reception entrances

  • Speeches

  • Dancing

  • Exit!

Once you’ve got your photos organized, head to the online platform and start uploading.
