I have 3 $20 giftcards for shutterfly that I received from Davids bridal. I am hoping I can use all of them at once to make a guest book for my wedding with my engagement pictures. I am so lost as to what the layouts should be.
Is 20 pages enough?
How many pictures should I put on a page?
If anyone would “share” their book with me or post pictures of their pages and layouts I would be very appreciative. I did not think this would be so hard! haha

I just did mine a few days ago! I can’t wait til it arrives. I picked the “custom path” because it lets you get a little more creative with multiple pictures on a page. I went with plan white pages (no patterns or background colors) so that the spaces around the photos can be used for writing. I didn’t leave a ton of room on all of the pages so that it doesn’t look weird if there aren’t a bunch of people signing on all the pages. Here’s some examples from mine.

I forgot to say, I just used the 20 pages. I thought I was going to want to add more, but in the end I was wishing I could delete the last few!

@Jennybenny16: I used 20 pages. I did a couple pictures on one side and a blank page (with design) on the other side where people signed. It turned out great!

I made mine on mixbook and it turned out great! It cost $40 for 25 pages plus shipping and was at my door within a few days of ordering it. My photographer was quoting $350 for the same thing after our $150 album credit. I’ve never used snapbook or shutterfly but I’ve never heard anything bad about them. I say go for it!

I did! I used the 20 pages and made it sort of interactive. I put a picture on one page and then a question on the page opposite to it for people to answer when they signed. The questions were things like “futuremrslp, one thing you should know about futuremrsslp is…” and “What is your best marriage advice?” Everyone I’ve shown it to so far has loved it!

Did anyone select the layflat option? It’s $40 extra & unsure whether it’s worth it?

@Jennybenny16: I loved mine. I mixed mine up, some had only one big picture, some had lots of smaller ones. I did 21 pages and it was plenty. 🙂
It was also great quality. I didn’t pay for the extra for the flat book…didnt think it was necessary. But I’m sure it would be gorgeous as well.
