Ooh, good question! I’m doing photobooks for our parents (like you, obvious reasons), and my grandmother because she’s the only surviving grandparent on my side (and FH’s grandparents are no longer with us) and she won’t be able to make it to the wedding. Nobody else is getting on – more so because I think if they want photos of the wedding they’ll be able to get them from Facebook and Flickr and such. I think if I was in a bridal party as a Maid/Matron of Honor it’d be a bit weird to get a photobook of a wedding – even if it was a minibook.

I’d do them for parents/grandparents, but not for the wedding party– I’d be more apt to pick a great shot of us together, or my Maid/Matron of Honor with her husband, and put it in a nice frame, as a gift.

I think mini-books for the wedding party would be a nice touch.  I know the wedding I was in, I am always refering to and sometimes wish I had a nice little flip book to show people.  I would not want a huge or expensive thing though.  I think just a flip book that binds 20 or so 4×6 pictures together would be great.

We’re getting our album of course, but then one for each set of parents and one for each of our grandmothers. The rest of the family/bridal party, I’m planning on making prints for. Our photog gives us the rights to the images, so we’ll be able to print them off at Walgreens or another place for cheap.

In your situ, I would give one to the grandmother who couldn’t come because of illness. The other grandma, eh, not unless she asks. She choose not to come, no offense, but why should you go out of your way to make her an album? Send her a photo maybe, but not an album.
