- Wedding: October 2012
I know this is something debated on, OFTEN on this board, but I am in a unique situation.
I am the bride who has champagne taste on a beer budget. My cousin, did our photos for our October wedding and they turned out incredible! We have them all in hand, and have no clue what route to go.
Myself, I want a professional grade flush mount couple thousand dollar album, as we spent pennies for our amazing photographer, why not splurge on an album? However, we don’t have $1,000+ to spend on an album, we don’t even have $500+ to spend on one.
With this, my husband and I argue everytime we chat about our album. He wants to just “order one from costco” and there is NO WAY in hell, I will just “order one from costco”. And I cannot convince him that “splurging” on one would be worth it. We end up fighting and I end up in tears, and frustrated.
My cousin recommended “blurb” and I know they can offer pretty good albums for good prices, with a little thicker pages, but not what I desire and before we get into this, no way would our parents chip in on one, they would think I am nuts as well to spend that much.
I want my grandbabies and great grandbabies to look at the album. I do know that my parents, nor my grandparents had professional quality albums, they printed out photos and slapped them in the old photo albums (like scrap books) and while yes they are a little yellowed and old, I still love looking at them, no matter the quality. So that doesn’t bother me, I am just afraid the cheaper albums won’t even have that going for the, they will completely fall apart.
Anyone have a solution, or anyone run into this problem?
