Our photography package with our destination wedding didn’t include any prints/albums, just the CDs of all the photos our photographer took that day. In all, it’s about 1,200 pictures.
On top of that, we had a professional photographer for our at-home reception which occurred a few weeks after our wedding. We haven’t received those back yet, but our photographer has promised them this week.
Seeing as it’s quiet this week, it seems like a good opportunity to put together a photobook of our favourites from both the actual wedding and the at-home reception. I’m obviously not going to use ALL of the photos, but with that many to choose from, there will likely be a lot of photos.
Does anyone have any recommendations of good sites to put together a nice wedding book?

I love Shutterfly. Sign up with them and they will email you TONS of coupons and deals 🙂

My personal and professional experience for press books are MyPublisher, Adorama, and Mpix. I think Blurb and Snapfish are horrible.

I just put one together on Shutterfly and am awaiting its arrival. I opted for the top-of-the-line book for our personal copy (the coupon didn’t apply, unfortunately), but I was easily able to migrate that book over to a second version with the second-fanciest cover and page options, and we’re getting two copies of that one for the two sets of parents at a 40% off discount.
Shutterfly is relatively user-friendly; it can be a tiny bit glitchy (sometimes the backgrounds don’t load on the first try, etc.) I liked all the options for customizing.
I’ve also heard good things about Adoramapix, although I haven’t tried them.

I love Shutterfly, and Snapfish is also good for photo books. I have used both before

I just made my first photobook on Shutterfly and I was really happy with how it turned out. Especially since I had a coupon that took a lot off!

Unlike everyone else I had a super hard time with Shutterfly (it seemed very glitchy for some reason and hard to navigate) so I used Mix Book instead, and I couldn’t have been happier. We did hard cover coffee table books for each of our parents, and they turned out absolutely gorgeous. I don’t know if Mix Book has any coupons though. I ordered mine on Cyber Monday and got a heck of a good deal.

I like Costco Photo products. I think their photo books start around 30 dollars.

I love Mixbook. I have ordered calendars from them, as well as our wedding guestbook, and just created (and received) wedding photobooks for our parents. Extremely happy with how they turned out!

I used both shutterfly and myPublisher. Both books turned out great. I think Shutterfly was a bit easier to use and has some really nice pre-made designs to choose from. Also since you design the book online you can access it anywhere. MyPublisher requires you to download a program, create the book on your computer, and then upload the final file, it took me 3 tries to get the book to upload.

I haven’t made one yet but does anyone have any pictures of their albums ?
