I printed off a photo album from Walgreens, and I hear shutterfly has deals often as well.

I made my own on Costco’s photo web site.  Cost me $60 and I had A LOT of pages. Hundreds of photos.

@Stiletto13:  I ordered a custom lay-flat book from Snapfish.com. I am very happy with the quality. I was able to fit about 250 pictures on 100 pages by using different layouts: some single shot, some collages. It looks great. I paid about $90 for it by using one of the many deals they offer.

My photog sent us prints if all our photos so I went to home goods and bought albums for about $10 each and put them in (each album I bought holds 400 photos, smaller albums were cheaper). 

 

If you wanted something printed, I have ordered books from both snapfish and shutterfly and find them comparable. Use a site like retailmenot to find coupon codes before ordering!

I make my albums with shutterfly. I just ordered a high quality one with 25 pages (11×11) and was able to fit a ton of pictures in it. You can edit it and use their suggestion pages as well as save as many pictures as you’d like to use on your “project” and save it to come back to work on it later. The one I just ordered (not for wedding pictures yet, but a gift for my groom!) turned out AMAZING – so very happy with it!

@Stiletto13:  I found a livingsocial deal for a site called picaboo— i got $150 to spend only paying $40

I wound up getting a GORGEOUS book with a leather cover and about 200 photos inside. I was able to position them as I wanted, some pages have 5 photos, some its a full spread between the 2 pages. All said and done I think the book is about 35 pages, front and back, nice quality paper is used, also.

I was sure to design it very simple, with all of the photos on a black page, I have done other books before on snapfish (and sites like it) with the fun borders, etc. but as my wedding album I wanted it to be classic and simple. (although this site also has the option to do borders, etc)

Quality is great, so watch for some coupons!!

Another suggestion on how to use wedding photos, get a nice canvas made. I found another livingsocial deal for a site and only wound up paying $30 for a 20″ x 24″ canvas (typically it costs $80 on that specific site)

We get a lot of compliments on the quality/size of it when people come over, its a nice way to display photos outside of the traditional photo frame/ album style =)

Two of my friends used shutterfly. And you can get coupons to use on the site. I have only seen one’s album. It was good enough for me! My photographer charges $350 and up for albums. I would hate to pay that much when I can get one for a third of the cost or less.

I like Mypublisher/Adoramapix for press books the best with upgraded paper. I find most others a bit junkie, specially Snapfish. I think their coloring is off.

@Stiletto13:  I filled out a Survey for TK and got a free Shutterfly album, sure it’s not as fancy as one from a photog but I’m not one for albums anyway.

Picaboo has some really nice flush mounted wedding albums. I haven’t ordered one of the flush mounted albums, but their regular albums are awesome, so I’m sure the wedding ones are even better. They usually have pretty good discounts and specials here: http://picaboo.evyy.net/c/79453/105676/2307
