I did a couple on Shutterfly.  I thought they came out nice – but I’d love to do something on one of the more professional ones to compare.  I wasn’t very impressed by the flimsey paper Shutterfly uses.  I guess I can’t complain much though since they were almost free (combination of coupons and discounts)

there is a really good post on here somewhere about doing professional-looking books on your own. evidently most places will only work with pros, but there are some sites that will work with individuals.

ill see if i can find it. thought i had it bookmarked but apparently not. it is incredibly extensive and detailed.

I used Mixbook for our guestbook using photos from Aruba, where we got engaged.  I just received the book today and it looks great.  The photo quality and layouts are beautiful.  It is very similar to a coffee table book you would buy at Barnes and Nobles.  The paper is the same type of quality and the hardcover is the same type of quality.  I am not sure if I would do my wedding album with them but they were perfect for our guestbook and possible honeymoon album.  Here is our album you can view online.  I paid $30 for a gorgeous guest book.



I did go to a bridal show that had  the London Photo Book Company.  They had really thick pages.  We are thinking of using them for our actual wedding album.  But they arn’t nearly as cheap as some of the others.

I used Shutterfly for an album of vacation photos. I was really happy with the quality other than two really dark photos that looked pixel-ly.I did a 5×7″ soft cover book, 32 pages and it cost $12.99 including shipping to Canada. I had a combo of coupons and discounts as well. Can’t beat the price!

I’ve heard Blurb.com is really good. Let us know what you choose, I’m going to do our wedding album this way as well. Our photographer wants $1000/book! Ya right!

I love Blurb. I made a couple of albums for other family events and they look very nice and professional. Some people told me that mycanvas.com is also good, but I have never tried it

I love this post! I have used Shutterfly, for scrapbooking stuff, and was pleased with the quality (again, for scrapbooking stuff). I’m considering using them for our guestbook, but am hesitant to use them for the actual wedding. I know that the Road to the Aisle blog had a cool post about the wedding album she herself designed.
