Was your wedding day one of the most memorable days of your life?

Many brides enjoy collecting and creating memories from the big day, whether this is through photographs or mementos. We believe that one of the best ways to save and display these memories is by crafting a wedding scrapbook.

How do you create the perfect wedding scrapbook? There are numerous ways to add that extra special personal touch. If you’re looking for inspiration, we at Papermilldirect can help. As your wedding scrapbook is something that can be cherished, we have come up with lots of fun ideas which you can include.

Think About Your Theme

One of the most important features of your wedding scrapbook revolves around the theme! This can often take time to decide on, but once chosen, it will make it easier to piece and tie the scrapbook together.

One of the most popular theme choices is the colour scheme from your wedding, however, you could also pick a part of your big day that you particularly loved and base your scrapbook around this memory. An example of this could be the music played during your wedding, and for this, you can include some of your favourite lyrics on some of the pages.

One of the great things about crafting a wedding scrapbook is that it’s personal to you, and you can design it however you wish. The options are endless.

Include Items from Your Wedding

To create everlasting memories of the build up to your wedding and of your big day, include items from your wedding day. It can be difficult to think of what things to include, but choose the items which you loved the most, ensuring your scrapbook is filled with the items you love.

Here are some ideas of what you can include in your scrapbook:

  • Wedding stationary – this could be anything from your invitations to your save the date cards
  • Your menu and order of service from the day
  • Petals or pressed flowers from your bouquet and table arrangements
  • Lace from your dress or veil
  • Readings and speeches from your loved ones
  • Messages written to both the bride and groom from your loved ones.

At Papermilldirect, our craft supplies can help you include these precious memories in your wedding scrapbook.

Wedding Scrapbook

Choose Various Photograph Sizes

The photographs are documentations of the build up to and from your wedding day, and these will be one of, if not the most important item included within your scrapbook. It’s a good idea to include different size photographs instead of the usual 4 x 6 size, this means your photographs are not taking up a full page, allowing you to design around them, or fit numerous photographs on the same page.

Pick a range of photographs, from the planned shots of your wedding day, to more unsuspecting snaps which catch the true emotion of the individual included. Throughout time, looking through these photographs will create a joyous memory. Your wedding scrapbook can be as colourful and delicate as you like. Our card blanks come in a range of colours and sizes, making them an ideal material to help you create your perfect wedding scrapbook.
