Step 1: Consult People Closest to You
Before deciding on photographs that you want to add to your wedding album, consult your spouse, friends, siblings or parents. This will give you a wider perspective of what people want to see in the wedding album. But never lend any of the wedding photos to any persons however close to you. It may sound anal but things go missing!
Only you will be able to care for the pictures like they were your own children. And you don’t want to end up resenting anyone either. Lending your wedding pictures or album is bound to lead to loss or damage – we could even write a separate post on this alone, due to how many times we’ve heard of wedding photos going missing.

The pictures should be arranged in the same sequence as the wedding occurred. The cocktail, wedding ceremony, cake cutting and other special moments should all be separate in respective folders.
Make one wedding photo book for each folder. When selecting pictures, pick the images you are most attracted to. Don’t hesitate to compare the pictures as this will lead to clouding your mind. This is the best way to get to a desired shortlist.
Now move on to insert the picture in respective albums. The number of images to be set in to each folder will depend on the size of the DIY wedding album and the number of pictures available. Remember, not all wedding picture will be appropriate to put in a wedding album so you will need to start with the best of the best!
Dot stickers are great if you have a large number of pictures and need to number them to maintain sequence. Never use permanent markers as they will damage the picture. Pencils could also be used but mark only lightly to avoid denting and damaging the pictures.
