It’s been 3 1/2 years since I got married and I regret to say that I’ve never actually put together a wedding book. It sounded like a great inexpensive idea to do it DIY until I realized how much work and time had to go into gathering all the photos, printing them out and then purchasing all the books to put the photos in. Not including all the postage to family members. I could have went the DVD route but that meant actually going through and editing photos, then putting them into a video format and then purchasing the DVDs, postage…. I’m sure you get the idea. So 3 1/2 years later and everyone’s pretty much forgotten about my idea of having a wedding book. Until I stumbled upon Mixbook when offered a chance to review their 5×7 Invitations. I saw their gorgeous, unique photobooks and fell in love. Much to my amazement I was offered the chance to review an 8×6 Soft Landscape Photobook and within a few hours I had My Wedding Book and what’s more amazing is I can share it with all of you!
One of the greatest things I figured out while creating my photobook is that I can change it up for everyone. I had a very large wedding party, many guests and between the pre-wedding party, the wedding and the reception… we wound up with a lot of photos. So I figured out that I can personalize THIS wedding book for all of my guests! After the initial wedding photos I can put more photos of a chosen guest and their family and friends at the wedding. It’s just like personalizing a memory for them!
Another idea I am working on is making books for each of my children of their lives growing up. They can see themselves through time and have something personal and special; almost like a photographic biography. There are so many neat and wonderful ideas that you can create along with the categories that they have. You can begin with one you like and change everything within it to fit what you want: the background, the embellishments, the colors, direction, how many photos go on a page, the fonts, etc. Mixbook gives you the ability to create something very professional, easily, quickly and inexpensively. Which is just what most of us are looking for; especially me. I now have one of my wedding books, thanks to Mixbook, and it’s perfect.
