@Showers:  I would recommend skipping them for your album, but whatever float’s your boat!

I included one page of all detail shots into my album. I loved the details from my wedding and I really feel as though they help set the scene and tell the story of the day.

I’m probably going to combine both detail shots and actual photos of people in my finished album (I’m designing it myself). All the big, featured images will actually be of people though.

I made almost everything for my wedding, so I’d like to remember those things too!!

We’re doing one page (of 30) of details – dress hanging, invitation with rings, shoes with flowers (shoes had a flower accent so it goes well!), and program cover.

I include details in album designs because the details help tell your “story” and visually break up spreads. Also, like others said there is often a lot of hard work that goes into creating details, especially with as many handmade weddings as there are these days!

i made a big (76 page) album of my wedding and TTD on adoramapix. so i included many if not all the detail shots. although i made them all small. like one spread for all dinner details and one spread for all ceremony details.  the spreads that had less pics on them were more the people pics because i thought they looked nicer that way. I did this album becuase i really wanted an album now and wanted to print a good chunk of my pics rather than just have them on my computer.

In the future when i can actually afford a professional album, i might do one with a lot less pictures – like just the absolute best ones – and in that type of album, shoes and centerpieces will probably be the first thing to go.  I just didn’t want to wait like 2 or 3 years before i had any sort of album as now is the time when i am enjoying it the most and actually looking at it/showing it to people.  And perhaps in a couple of years when i can afford a $500+ album, i may or may not care anymore to  have or make one.  we’ll see.

@Showers: well honestly, i decided to do this after receiving our parent albums, which i had made through adoramapix.  For them, i did a 76 page album because i included the wedding, the week in Jamaica, the formal photos we did back home with family and BMs that couldn’t come to our wedding, and our AHR BBQ celebration.  So to do mine, i started from my mother’s album and it didn’t take nearly as long as it had to the parent albums!  The only new thing was that i put was the TTD pics, the rest was rearranging some spreads to suit what i wanted versus what i had thought our parents would want, and adding more of the details and B&G shots that i wanted.  I did a small 26 page album for our AHR – I did this one now too because it was cheaper on shipping to order them at the same time.  And as crazy as it sounds, i had fun doing it! i discovered i like designing albums!!

I did the same PPs– I have two pages of details (and yes, my shoes are there). I really do like the picture of my necklace on my bouquet and others. I started with our book and I made the parents’ books from that. I agree with

I’m making more because it was so fun (and I snagged some awesome Groupon/Google deals).

I included detail shots in our DIY photobook because they helped tell the story of the day. When it comes time for our professional album, we’ll have to see what photos they include. We won’t be tackling that job with our photographer until our first anniversary since we need to pay for it seperately, and that stuff isn’t cheap.
