66 sides or pages?? Sheesh!

My album currently has 20 and I’m hoping not to buy more… but I’m sure I’ll have to. 40 more sides is and extra $500!

Ours has 50 pages, so I don’t know that 66 is crazy. If you like all of the photos in your album, I say go for it! 🙂

We have a choice between 30, 40, and 50. One picture per page. They’re matted, like artwork… I’m so in love with them and can’t wait! I’m worried that I’ll fall in love with more that 50 pictures…

Anything over 50 is too many, because that’s not an option for our album. We will do either 40 or 50 pictures.

Is it possible to get the other photos as prints and not in the album? Or can you order a smaller album and then DIY another album with all 66 photos?

I did a photobook for my sister’s wedding (got an awesome groupon for it!) the base book has 40 sides, her photographer gave her a book with 20. I decided that I wanted to work within 40 pages or I’d go crazy. 

I hope this may help you but what I did when I started was assigned pages to specific things, 3 pages for my sister getting ready + accessories, 1 page for the guys. 2 page spread of the church setup and so on. About halfway through I was able to notice that I wouldn’t have enough pages to do everything I wanted and cut back on some things and shifted others around. 

I don’t know how your book creation thing works, but one page for the reception I had 9-12 different smaller images all on one page, did this again for some candids during the formal shots. 

Its tricky, but you have to cherry pick whichever pictures are the best, perhaps things you are going to get framed should not be duplicated in the book as a rule? I don’t know how big your wedding was, but 60 is probably a resonable goal if you feel you need to cut images.

Usually for pro flush mount albums 15-20 pages is the max (some around 25).  So thats 30-50 sides.  DIY albums can squeeze more in because the page are MUCH thinner.
