    Just wondering if I should use picaboo, snapfish, shutterfly, mixbook, etc.  Anyone have a great experience or a not-so-great one they're willing to share?  Important to note is that I'll need really fast processing and shipping (I'll pay for overnight), since my shoot is only a couple weeks before our wedding, so if you ordered one that took forever to process please say that, too!  Thanks!

    I used Shutterfly. I did a black background book and would use their crop tool to create little peek-a-boo pictures... it was great. Fast processing and the finished product looked awesome!

    I had a great experience with both Shutterfly and Snapfish. I used Shutterfly to create my guestbook, I did a hard cover book through them, and I also made a softcover book through Snapfish of just random pics of my fiance and I. I was quite please with both, but I think for the boudoir book I will use shutterfly, only because I like the little black book template that they have. I haven't checked out mixbook or any others though!

      Thanks guys!  Someone else told me they were happy with Shutterfly too, so I think I will go that route!  Your input is much appreciated!

        I used Mixbook and LOVED how the final product turned out. I did a black leather book and used a discount code I found online. The one that really drew me to Mixbook was that they had a ton of layouts and options along with an easy to use setup.

          I used My Bridal Pix and my book came out awesome. I chose their lay flat book which had thick pages and panoramic spreads so I did not have the fold of the book down the middle of my images. What I liked most was they had templates that were just for boudoir books so my book was really easy to lay out and it looks so professional.

          @agm04 For two different weddings I was in, us BMs did books for the Bride with pictures and stories from us. We used http://www.milkbooks.com/about.aspxand they came out AMAZING! I highly recommend them.

          eek! A couple weeks isn't much time! Is that even enough time to get the shots from the photographer?
