@dynamic_duo:I definitely think the picture on the front should be of you and Darling Husband and not a resort pic. 

It’s difficult to tell you how many pics you should include for your parents’ album…it all depends. Will they want lots of pics of all the relatives? Would they be happy with just immediate fam pics, ceremony, and the staple reception pics?

I’d recommend going through the pics you are including in your personal album and counting the ones you think you parents would appreciate…then decide which you want to take up the whole page, and which you could make smaller (to include 4 pics on one page), etc…

Good luck! They will love it!

I did 8×8 for his grandparents and am going with 12×12 for our parents albums  since I got the $15 for $50 mixbook groupons.  I think 8×8 is a good little size, I use it all the time for vacation albums.  The only thing is that it’s harder to be creative and fit a lot of picture on a page though with such a small book if you still want each picture to be a good size.  I wouldnt recommend more than 4 or 5 pictures/page.  There’s a photobook america groupon today for Boston if you’re another deal.

For a parent album, consider a solid leather cover with maybe your names the date, I would skip the picture.

@dynamic_duo:  Depends on the layout, 8×8 is acceptable, 10×10 for sure.

For our parents we did a 35 page, 8.75″ X 11.25″ from my publisher (same as what we did for ourselves).

For the front cover we did a generic ring shot and then a kissy picture on the back.

I would go up to 6 pictures per page- we did 9 when there was only small portions of different pictures we wanted to feature.

I think the folder of favorites is a good idea. I did something similar (I marked the file names with an additional letter so they would come up first) and it made things a lot simpler.
