Choosing My Wedding Invites and Wedding Album
Planning a wedding can bring a rush of emotions. For me it was excitement and joy. This was our new beginning, together as one, and that kept the to-do list simple and fun. Never once during our planning did I allow myself to feel the stress of planning. One of the MAIN reasons was thanks to Mixbook for making it seamlessly simple and affordable to purchase our wedding invitations and RSVPs.
Picking out our perfect rustic ceremony and reception barn, we knew we wanted to carry that theme into our small wedding details. Mixbook has many options to choose from, but it was pretty easy to tell which format was for us. Taking only minutes to plug in our important information, it was enjoyable to play around with the fonts and colors that were available. We loved the idea of keeping the RSVP a postcard and created the opposite side with our home address and a spot to put the stamp. The best part was compromising on the designs and also adding the personal touch of our engagement photos!
The wedding was absolutely everything we have ever dreamt of it being. Once getting back from the relaxing and very indulgent honeymoon, we patiently awaited to receive our wedding photos. Photography is such a huge part of my life, and capturing each moment during a wedding day allows the bride to relive the day in snapshots. Now it was my turn to be the bride and someone else would capture our day. This was a pinch me moment!
The magical moment came and my husband and I laughed, smiled, and cried through the entire gallery. It was almost immediately following, that I started my Mixbook photo book creation. To be honest as we were flipping through each photo, I took a mental record of my "must haves" in the photo book! I mean, what is the purpose of having such beautiful photos if you don't have a place to share them!
One thing I absolutely adore about Mixbook's online site is the amount of options to choose from! We wanted something light and whimsical to display the pastels and flower crowns. Everything about our day seemed like our perfect fairytale and the book needed to reflect that! Having about 10 (and I'm not exaggerating...) options to choose from for our liking, we decided on Boho Chic Wedding. How perfect, right?
The pages are already designed but also extremely easy to change! We had a lot of photos and needed to add many more pages, but the site made that simple to do. As a wedding photographer myself, I adore the small details of the day. You know, the ones that the bride spends hours deciding on. So yes, every detail was shared in our book along with our favorite people. After reviewing our pages for the umpteenth time, I purchased our forever wedding album. I am so happy with the way it all turned out. I'm also so glad I went with a 12x12 Premium Luster Lay Flat book. The thick pages and lay flat viewing is to die for.
