To all of the Bees how have made/order wedding albums or photobooks:
How are you pictures arranged in you album? What order of events are they in? Like do you have shots of you and your groom and you both and the wedding party before or after ceremony pictures? What about the family pictures? Where in order do you have detail shots?
I really need to start putting together our flushmount album (I’m ordering it online myself instead of through our photographer) but I had some questions about what order of everything would make the most sense.

i would generally put them in the order they happened. for detail shots, if it’s a shot of your accessories, put it with your getting ready photos. if it’s your tables, put it with your reception photos.
if you did a first look and bridal party before the ceremony, that’s where i would put them in the album. i would put family photos right after the ceremony.

What type of picture did you use to “end” your album? Like, what is on your last page and/or back cover?

I would end the album with a really happy shot of the two of you.

I put ours mostly in the order they happened/were taken. There are a few exceptions but, it’s generally because something was part of a them such as a 2 page spread of guests dancing from various points during the night. I used some details as fillers/accent photos. For example, I have a shot of the cake topper on the same page as us cutting the cake.

We did our in the order they happened. Rehearsal dinner (pro shot), getting ready, portraits, ceremony, cocktail hour, reception. We ended with my husband and I dancing wrapped around one another in the coolest candid i’ve ever seen. It happened at the end of the night, and just felt like a really fitting end.

Here’s my album. With 300 pictures that were a combination of pro photos and guest photos, it took a lot of organizing and strategizing to get the flow right :
