A photo album is more of a personal choice rather than a ‘must have’ these days. All the weddings I have photographed have wanted digital delivery so that they can print the photos at a later stage or make their own book/album if they ever want it. We live in a world now where 99% of our photos are on our phone and computers rather than in albums or frames. From a photographers view, it’s easier to not produce an album as the process can be very time consuming. It can also be frustrating for the couple, having to wait for the album to be finished.
A wedding album is an important book to have – if its in your budget! Once the wedding attire is packed away and the party is over.. the photographs are one of the few things left to remember the day. Digitals are great to have! But the album will be the special book passed through generations with all the memories enclosed. Often couples have the digitals and they stay on their computer. They always plan to print this or that, or create their own book – but it rarely happens.
Including a dress code on your wedding invitations is a handy way to enhance the tone, theme, or mood you want on your big day, because your guests will dress according to your wedding’s overall style nicely. It also helps guests decide what to wear by providing guidance as to how formal – or informal – your wedding is going to be.
