Four reasons to get a wedding album

November 23rd, 2013

The first expense to go when it comes to wedding arrangements is the wedding album.  It's cut from the budget because it's cheaper to have wedding photos digital.  While that saves time and money there's nothing wrong with going back to basics.  Having a wedding album is a great idea for traditional reasons.  There are more reasons why a photo album is a hot commodity

Evolving Technology

One of the 4 reasons to get a wedding album is technology.  It's always changing.  What's hot today can become cold and state in a few months.  Transferring things from one digital medium to the latest digital device just to keep up with trends is a hassle that isn't worth it.  Wedding albums stand the test of time no matter how much technology evolves because it's stable and constant.

Technology isn't guaranteed

Just because the photos are online doesn't mean it will stay there.  It will remain there as long as couples do their due diligence and backup their files.  Unfortunately to keep the photos digital backup must be constant.  A DVD, flash drives, and online photo sites have an ending.  DVDs fade and skip with constant viewing.  Flash drives and portable hard drives corrupt and wipe out stored photos.  Computers can be wiped out, corrupted, hacked, infected or stolen.  Online photo sties and cloud sites can shut down at any moment without informing anyone about it.  A wedding album will stay with you through the ups and downs of technology.  You will have something to fall back on when technology doesn't hold up their end of the bargain.


Wedding albums comes in so many styles today.  This is the chance to make it exactly the way you want it to be.  Add personal style and flavor to the front, back, inside and binder side of the album and make it truly unique to your personality.  Show off you and your spouse's individual tastes.  Showing off the personality involves detailed designs and patterns. Being involved in the process brings couples together.  Technology can't seem to evoke the same feeling of personal style the way wedding albums can. 


Once it's online will you go back and look at them?  The answer depends on how easy the access is.  Wedding photos are online because it's easy to store, not easy to access.  Even if it is easy to access the thought of finding one photo out of plenty is tedious.  It's often forgotten about because it's not organized.  It's a lot of unnecessary hassle to pull out the computer and look for the photos.  It's much easier to access a wedding album because it's right where you placed it.

A wedding album is a family heirloom that will be with you for eternity.  It's something you can pass on to the kids and grandkids.  It's something to store more than just photos; you can store invitations, napkins, programs and wedding bouquet petals.  It's something everyone can hold, feel and remember long after the first view.  No amount of technology can take the place of that.  Contact us for more information on wedding albums.
