Eight weeks, not week, eh. Maybe were instead of are for that line as well. Would hate for you to have it go to print without someone pointing it out to you.

I like it! The lighter pages for the guests to write on – if you don’t want to put some ruled lines on there for people, were you thinking of writing a message of some kind for them to know? Or have your bridal party get the signing started?

I like it! I think “Our Guests” looks better without the ” : “. What did you set the opacity to for the pages you want our guests to write on? I just my book & the opacity was 20% but I wish it was a bit lighter.

Mmmmmm a few things don’t look right to me. I disagree with ‘Our Guests:’ I think ‘Your message to the bride and groom’ would be clearer and better. Also I don’t like the fact that the same picture has been used on both the cover and the first page, yes one is zoomed and one isn’t but its still the same pic.

I also dont like pages 9 and 10, the pic on the left hand side at the top needs to be at the bottom of the page next two the other pic with Goofy, you need to stay consistant with your design. Pages 23 and 24 are the worst, on page 24 you have a small pic covering the other one, it looks weird, make the faded pic on the side smaller and place it next to the other one so the pics are the same size if you really want to include both.

Apart from that not a bad job. Just make sure evreything lines up throughout the entire book. Not sure how many guests you are having but you need to make sure everyone has enough room to write as many people won’t write over the dark pics just the faded ones.

I’m a graphic designer, so I’ve had experience with designing covers and so on and so forth. Anywho, I love this idea! I don’t know why I never thought of it! I’m totally doing it now. I like what you’ve got going so far.

I agree with bridetobe7844 about using “your message to the bride and groom”! Has so much more feeling to it!

I would also suggest a simpler design for the inside. It would make it cleaner and you won’t have to worry about opacity! I would do a collage on the left page of your images with a border around each one. some can even be abstract/zoomed in off another photo to bring more attention to just one or two. I would then leave the right page just one solid color, or reflecting the left, but instead of photos different colors, but keep them pastel. I’d pulled colors from your photos to pull the whole thing together!

love what you’ve got going!

I love it ! But I do have to agree with bridetobe7844 about the wording….( this is my own opinion though – if you love your book then dont change a thing! ) – I am doing one for our wedding and instead of putting “our guests” on the pages, I will be putting something similar to “your message to the bride and groom” – it will make it more personal and people will be more likely to write in it and leave a little message πŸ˜‰

I personally don’t mind “our guests” but if you would like them to write more than their names maybe “Special wishes for the newlyweds…”

I think it looks awesome!

Just a note; I have an adoramapix album, and the texture is a type that I don’t think could be written on with regular or gel pens (like writing on an actual photo) so make sure you buy/test out some options before the big day.
