Matted Wedding Albums

Pros:

  • Top Quality
  •  the photographs are assembled behind a mount
  • The images can be mounted with a border around the images.
  • The pages are elegant, with only a few images per page
  • The covers can be fabric such as Harris Tweed or linen, or leather.
  • The pages are very thick.
  • The album is likely to be very heavy and will definitely make you feel like you are about to lift and open something very special.

Cons:

  • Very expensive
  • Sometimes design options are limited by the matts used / offered by the lab

Designed Wedding Album – images printed on the pages

Pros:

  • Different labs offer many different sizes
  • The album can have almost any number of page and is produced around your wedding
  • Therefore, the album can have as little as 20, 30, 40 images or as many as 200 and sometimes more.
  • Has a wedding feel to it.
  • Thick pages
  • Very neat and good quality production
  • Lots of different cover options available (different materials and colours)
  • virtually no design constraints of the images on the pages

Cons:

  • Production time varies from lab to lab (my lab – from ordering to delivery – 10 days, some other labs can take as much as 4 months!)
  • Starting to get a lot more expensive

Self-Adhesive Wedding Book

Pros:

  • Wedding Album

Cons:

  • Very limited number of size options
  • Very limited number of pages (10, 15, 20) – which limits the number of images
