@Diamondgurl:  I chose to put photos that I wasn’t going to print out otherwise in the album….things like detail shots, funny pictures with the bridal party, and other random moments (like dancing with our parents, getting ready shots, and some ceremony moments). I didn’t put in a lot of family pictures or more formal portraits because I know that we’ll be printing out and framing a lot of those ones, so I wanted to save the album for those fun shots that wouldn’t otherwise have a place to live.  

The good news is that there is no right or wrong way to do it! Just choose the shots that are your favorites, most important, or just moments that you want to remember.  And remember- you can always make more than one album!  There are groupons all the time for photobooks- I know it won’t be anything as nice as the one you get from your photographer, but if you want to make an album of just you and your husband in the future you totally can.

@Diamondgurl:  I choose 70 photos that outlined the day well, mostly pictures of hubby and i, family pictures, bridal party (as a whole pictures), ceremony, intoduction, first dance, cake cutting etc,  I was also allowed 15-20 background pictures and used pictures of the flowers, venue, rings, cake, cake topper, etc as those.

Then I went on shutterfly when they were having a 50% off sale and made a much larger second album of all the pictures I wanted. (bridal party one at a time, family members one at a time, etc)

I picked my absolute favorite pictures of my husband and I and made sure those were in there.  One page for details (flowers, tables, reception shot, ceremony setup, etc) and then I made sure I included me and my bridesmaids, my husband and his groomsmen and then a pictures of us with our families.  I also made sure to include one picture from each of the “events” (cake cutting, grand entrance, first dance, toasts, bouquet, garter).  I had a hard time deciding on pictures so I actually saved copies of each of them on my computer, divided them into categories, and started deleting ones I knew for sure I didn’t want.  Then we tried to figure out how many from each category we wanted and sat down and picked the best one or ones left.
