Professionally Designed vs. Do-It-Yourself Wedding Album

These days, there are so many choices when it comes time for your wedding album.  Most photographers offer the option of a CD of your pictures so you can do what you want.
So many websites to choose from!!  So many different prices!!

Here's what to consider:

- Cost
Everyone is on a budget in these hard times, but this is your wedding album and getting a beautiful, high quality album doesn't have to be out of range.  There are so many options available to get a great album.  Sometimes you just choose fewer images to tell your story.

- Convenience
Do you really have the time to put together your own album?
My niece went to one of those make-it-yourself sites and after 6 months, asked me to have it designed for her.  It was done by an expert graphic designer within days.  Once she saw it, she couldn't believe all the time she wasted trying to make something so important when for a little extra cost, she was able to have it done professionally.

- Craftsmanship
You get what you pay for.  It's so hard to see the quality of the albums on-line.  Cover quality, page quality, lay-flat pages, binding.  These are all important factors when it comes to your wedding album lasting a lifetime.

So it may be great to do-it-yourself for those everyday vacation books or a baby book for grandma.  But when it comes to such an important event, you really want your love story showcased with style!!
