Why should you invest in a Wedding Album
So much goes into having a wedding and everything requires money: wedding dress, venues, professional photographer, wedding band, invitations, flowers, rehearsal dinner…the list goes on. It’s an unfortunate growing trend that wedding albums are often the first thing to get cut. Many couples aren’t aware of the importance of a wedding album.
Like most couples, you will probably go through great lengths to find the right photographer to catch beautiful images on your wedding day. Therefore, it is also important to choose the right way to display and protect your wedding photographs so they can be pulled out and gone through again and again. If you are considering the best ways to store you cherished photos, then here are several of the top reasons why you should have a wedding album that will always be available for a nostalgic trip down memory lane.
Preserve Your Memories Over Time
Although it is hard to believe that you could forget any moment, the truth is that memories fade over time. While you will likely remember the rush of emotions that you felt while you said your vows, you will also forget those beautiful moments that made your wedding unique. With a wedding album, you can remember precious events such as your niece kissing your cheek or your uncle’s humorous toast with only a quick flip of the pages.
Digital Copies Can Be Lost
As much as we trust electronic media for our important documents and entertainment, it is important to remember that CDs and backup files can be lost or deleted. Not to mention, they can be hard to retrieve at a moment’s notice. If your wedding photos are stored on CDs or your personal computer, then go ahead and keep them there for back up. However, also make the effort to have them printed and compiled into a traditional wedding album that is less likely to ever be lost.
Albums can be Personalized and Show Your Style
Viewing pictures on a computer screen just isn’t the same as flipping through the pages of an album. Albums stir up much more powerful emotions. Albums also offer so many different ways in which you can customize to your own style that digital photos don’t offer. It may include embossing, different album cover materials (leather, fabric, etc.) and colors, different album sizes, background color, layout and design, storage boxes, etc.
Wedding Albums are Like a Storybook
When browsing through the pages of a well thought out album, your friends and family can enjoy the story of your wedding day. Framed photos and snapshots may only provide a glimpse into one specific moment. However, an album can be arranged to provide a complete view of your special day from beginning to end. Because your wedding day will likely have a storybook feeling, capture this effect by artistically arranging your photos in an album that carries your viewer through each special moment.
Technology Changes Quickly
Ask any couple that recorded their wedding on VHS, and you will learn a valuable lesson about the pitfalls of technological change. Those DVDs and CDs holding your images today will likely be obsolete within only a few short years. While many couples plan to have their wedding memories transferred to the next form of electronic media, the sad truth is that many never get around to it. Do not let that be you. If there is one thing that is certain, it is that traditional albums have been around for a long time.By setting up a wedding album, you can be sure your memories are preserved no
matter how much things may change technologically.
A Keepsake to Pass Down to Children and Future Generations
Throughout history, wedding albums have served as an essential record of a family’s history. Wedding albums also make a wonderful heirloom to pass down from one generation to another. Most don’t think that far ahead, but by purchasing a wedding album, they are contributing to their family history.
You'll be Glad You Did.
When looking back, the only regret that many couples have is that they do not have enough photographs of their special day. Those who took the time and spent the money to create a wedding album are always happy that they did.. Wedding albums are simply timeless and can preserve memories for many years to come.
