Hi all! I want to make a photo wedding guest book with our engagement pictures (what else are we gonna do with all those pict of us???? :)). Can you ladies who have done this before share a bit about your experience (tips and pitfalls) and recommend a good, user friendly site to make it on? I’ve kind of poked around on blurb and mixbook but am not really liking either… Thanks!

I did mine on shutterfly. It was UBER easy, and there are tons of coupons and deals all the friggin time. I was really happy with it, and our guests loved it.

I originally thought I’d use shutterfly, but I found that I like mixbook better! You can be more custom with where things are on the page than with shutterfly.

I did mine (and the ones for our parents) on PhotoBookAmerica.com. I got a Groupon for a $115 book for only $35. They came out AMAZINGLY well!

I used shutterfly a few weeks ago before they introduced this totally custom path. Now you can make books.. like it says.. completely custom, I wish I waited! I was also planning on using a Photobook Groupon to make it, but I got a credit on shutterfly so I used that instead. (And I dont mean to self promote here now, but I do have 2 groupons for photbook america now that I’m trying to sell: http://classifieds.weddingbee.com/topic/photobook-america-groupon)
Heres’ my page layouts: One thing I learned from this is even if it looks like a lot of space for signatures and messages on the computer screen, it doesnt look like as much in person. My book is a 8×11 and I tried to leave a good half to 70% of most pages blank.

I used Mixbook.com. It was super easy and cheap. I started with a Blank canvas and created my design from scratch. (background, colors, design, # of pictures per page)
I have tried shutterfly before, but between the two I would pick Mixbook. The quality is much better.
Hope this helps.

I haven’t used mixbook, but someone showed me this real example which is amazing:
not sure how hard it would be to make…
