Here’s another idea for wedding scrapbook pages. Make a layout with pictures of the wedding flowers, both bouqets and the arrangements for both the wedding and reception. Closeups of the bride holding her wedding bouquet are always a nice touch. Then place paper or silk flowers around the edges of the pictures for a sweet touch to the page.
By the way, did you know that wedding flowers were originally for warding off the body odor of the wedding attendees? And aren’t you glad that most people take baths regularly and wear deodorant these days? Yeah, me too!
What could you do to make a wedding album different? Well, lets think of traditions. Sometimes the bride is given different gifts for her wedding like the traditional saying, “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”. A fun idea would be to take pictures of all the special gifts the bride has gotten for her special day and make a page for each one. Ask her who the item is from and what the significance of it is to her. That will nicely fill in your journaling spots for each page!
Don’t forget those special embellishments to make each scrapbook page special!
It seems that Summer holds the most weddings out of the year, and this year I have several friends getting married too! Wedding scrapbooking doesn’t have to be boring! I have a fun suggestion for a bridal shower. Why not get every guest to make 1 scrapbook page or a double layout to give to the bride-to-be? They could be made at the actual bridal shower as an activity! The pages would just need photo mats made to normal picture sizes and a few embellishments. The bride-to-be could also be presented with some sets of die-cut letters and other embellishments to finish it off after the wedding. What a fun memory that would be!
Well, we’re getting into wedding season and I already know several that are happening right in my circle within the next month or two! So how do you make a wedding layout special? You don’t want the backgrounds and embellishments to outshine the brige & groom!
The best course of action is usually to choose colors from the wedding party’s outfits and try to keep the background as plain as possible to allow the pictures to shine through. White on white (or ivory on ivory) textures are ideal. Some greens (usually dark greens) from the flower bouquets are usually safe also, along with black, white, silver or gold. So let the memories begin! Happy scrappin’!
