DIY Wedding Album Search

All the photos are in and thanks to all the photographers out there, we've over 1,000 photographs of Jenni and Jose's wedding!

Now, what to do with them?! We've decided to make our own album online; the only problem, how to choose!

Picaboo has some really beautiful albums, a variety of options and easy-to-follow instructions. You can incorporate double-page spreads, custom backgrounds, collage pages and more. Prices range from $19.99 - $349.00, depending on the size and style.

But I'm not sure we need so many bells and whistles; I'm thinking of a clean and simple design and layout; something that will showcase the beauty of that day--the summer colors, the beach setting, the gorgeous flowers, and of course, the bride. The wedding was classic and simple--I think the album should reflect that as well.

Shutterfly had more of the simple and elegant design choices I'm looking for. Just look at the fun and casual feel of the cover below! This better matches Jenni's style and the mood of her seaside summer wedding.

They have a "storyboard" feature that helps you design your album and choose the best layout. The only thing is, I'm not sure if the page count is limited and it doesn't tell what options might be available. Prices start at $19.99 and all albums are 20% off until September 23. What I like about Shutterfly are these soft and simple color choices.

And, so the search continues for the best DIY wedding album--stay tuned!
