What brides should ask for is something along the lines of "full reproductive rights" to their photos. That means that you can basically do whatever you want with them, outside of selling them for a profit or using them commercially. You can print photos, books, whatever you want.
This is something that gets mixed up quite a bit both with Brides and newbie Photographers. I've seen many Photographers who say "I sold the B&G a DVD and gave them the copyright to all of their photos". If that is the case, then the Photographer is no longer allowed to use those photos - without first getting permission from the client.
So if you're discussing this with a Photographer, I would recommend asking for reproductive rights, not for the copyright. They may take it the wrong way.
