    Hello,

     

    I was wondering what other DW brides do for parent albums.  I am thinking to include pics from the whole week in Jamaica in addition to our wedding day.   What have you done?

     

    And would you think it makes sense to start the album with wedding pics or end with it?   (I am thinking start).  My other pics are from before and after the wedding.

     

    Last, what should i put on the front cover of a parent album?  a pic of me and hubby?  or something more generic, like a pic of the beach at our resort

      IMO...the cover should be one of your fav shots from the wedding (prob just you and hubby). When you think about it.... The book really is about the wedding. So unless you have some shots from throughout the week that you are madly in love with just have those pics in a sep album. Hope this helps!!!

        thanks. i get what you mean about the book being about the wedding.  but i don't want to make two albums per set of parents! for myself, i  made an album of Jamaica + honeymoon and then i will have a separate wedding day album.    But for our parents, we wanted to get them albums by christmas and since it was like a big family vacation, i thought it would be fun to include some non-wedding pics from Jamaica. i just don't know if that's weird or not.

          Hey this is all about doing things your way. That really will make a great Christmas present. How do you plan on making the books?

            i am going start with one through adoramapix and see how it comes out.  then maybe the other one through mpix.   although, i just did my honeymoon album through shutterfly and if i really like it, i might use it for parent albums, at least one of them,.

              There is a girl on here that posted the most awesome thank you books. She had them made through mypublisher.com and they were amazing. The layout is just like drag and drop. They were really nice for around $10. I plan on using them for thank you books for my guests at DW. Are more of your pics posted on BDW now?

                I think the idea of the whole week to include all those you love and cherish would be a great gift for your parents.

                 

                It would be a memory of the whole experience, not just the one day.

                  i hope others rely with their opinion too!

                      This is a great idea.  I was thinking of just doing a photo frame but an album with lots more pictures from the vacation would be even better. 

                       

                      Would it be cheesy to give a little card to each parent telling them we are creating photo albums for them as a wedding/thank you gift?
