I used both Mixbook and Shutterfly. They frequently have 50% off sales which makes them more affordable. I was happy with the quality of both. I used Mixbook for the albums we made for our parents and Shutterfly for the ones we made for our grandparents. I ended up using Shutterfly for our own wedding album because I liked thier layouts more.

I haven’t made anything like a wedding album book but I would highly recommend blurb.com!

You can make photo books using their site and their quality is TOP NOTCH. Like professional artist/publisher-quality and they have advertised that you can use their services to make a wedding photo album.

Source: I have used them for my design and illustration portfolios to present books to clients/potential employers/at art shows and their books are flawlessly made and the images are crisp, clear, and vibrant. I will most likely use their services again for future wedding/keepsake photo albums 👌🏻

I just made a photo book from Shutterfly. I got a Groupon for $75 for $150. Then there was a 50% hard cover photo books sale. So I created a HUGE 12×12 71 page book and other than the Groupon, I only had to pay $25 for shipping. 

I received it four days after I created it. It is super high quality and worth the $300 it usually is. I already ordered a 10×10 for my Mother-In-Law while the sale was still going.

littlecats :  So, I love photos, but I really like doing something a little more personal and textured. I made this over the course of some months as a project from the book “Calling In The One” The author advises making a “visioning wall” a physical and visual representation of the future relationship. 

I love a collage. Especially with a wedding, there are so many things in addition to photos; invitations, favors, even napkins… They can all be added to a canvas or poster board and framed or made into a shadow box. That way you can hang it for display all the time, which might lead to seeing it more often than a book you’d have to open. 

I kept this hanging in my study for months. It was lovely to look at, and it made me really happy to work on, too. I’m absolutely planning to do another one for the wedding.

😊

I used mpix.com and I’m super happy with mine. The quality is great, they have canvas covered lay-flat books and they ship really quick. Their editor is also really easy to use so I got to completely customize the book how I wanted.

I love Shutterfly! I used them to make a photobook for our engagement shoot. We got a promotion for a free hardcover photo book so ours was 20 pages (we did 1 photo a page out of preference) and we only paid for shipping (approx. $8). 

They have so many deals so if you time it you can get a really great discount.
