It sucks to wait, but I bet you will be so happy with the outcome it will have been worth the wait!

Here are some of them:
1. the total amount of images from your day, ttd session and/or rehearsal dinner. Some photographers shoot 3k-4k images or more, and it takes a lot of time to go through and do the color correction, adjust for exposure, contrast, etc. Keep in mind that most photographers shoot digitally, and so they are now not only doing the shooting and the editing, but are also now their own lab as well.
2. If there was a second photographer, then those images must also be edited and adjusted for color correction, exposure, etc., and this will add even more time to the whole process.
3. If you get married during prime wedding season, the photographer will be even busier, as he will be doing more weddings and portrait sessions than during the slower time of the year. And, of course, these other client's weddings also need to be edited, color corrected, etc.
4. Some photographers like to do a lot of adjustments to each of the images prior to posting them online. And, of course, this work takes quite a bit more time.
Hope this helps!

Dependant on what we are doing for them next - albums can take about 6-8 weeks once designed, fineart print box sets about a month, hand printed black and white - six weeks
If the couple is having a storybook type album, the design process might take a month while the provisional album proof bounces back and forth betwen us and the bride
If we are providing an oil or acrylic painting, they can litterally take months and months
So in sumarry, depends what you are ordering, depends on the quantity and size sometimes too. However the "proofs" usually take 1 or 2 weeks
