Hey ladies,

 

I am in the process of editing my DIY photos that my MOH helped me with. Where did you ladies go to make your BD photo book? I have no idea!

 

Thanks!!

I have used Blurb.com in the past to make photography books. The site has its own software (free) that is very easy to use - you can use templates or custom design everything. Your book can have as many pages as you want. You then upload the final file and can purchase as many book as you want and send the link to your family & friends. I have to say that the whole process was very easy and I loved how in control I could be with the final product. The books arrived quickly and the quality was incredible (as good as any photo book you could get at the bookstore). I adore my book and will be using them for our wedding book. I really recommend them! Feel free to message me if you would like additional details.

I haven't received my books yet but I decided to go with Shutterfly, the program is on their website and the prices are pretty competitive - unfortunately I haven't gotten them back yet (it's been about 2 wks). You could with somewhere local if you were worried about the shipping. There are tons of websites that make photo books, I was going to use Mac (ie Apple) but I read quite a few reviews that people had problems with the picture quality...Good luck deciding, just as an FYI you should probably get to work on it soon (it only takes a couple hours, or more if you want it to) so you can get it before your wedding. Good luck deciding!

Hi ladies! I did my own BD book as well with MyPublisher.com and it turned out phenomenally! Oh, and I was a last-minute bride and ordered it in the last week before I left ... so I wrote an email to customer service and they actually managed to print and send me the book in 4 days instead of their allotted 4-day procession, 2-4 days shipping or whatever.

 

I was really happy with the quality of the book and the overall look of the finished product. I'm trying to post a link to the book so you can see it, but MyPublisher isn't being very coopoerative even after I sing all this praise about it. :-p

 

OK so I finally got the share thing to work, but I'm not sure this will work:

If you have a MAC you can have beautiful photobooks made and ordered through iphoto...definitely worth the cost!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
