With the internet and digital storage, you may think that having a traditional photo album for your cherished memories is a thing of the past. But having a physical album that you can flip through someday when you’re old and grey is something else, and nothing can truly replace that.

Don’t know how to make your special wedding album? Fret not – here are some tips you can get from us.

1. Avoid overcrowding each page.
Though you may think that there should be spaces enough for all those hundreds of photos you took on your photoshoot, less is more. Give each page about two to three photos so that each photo could have its own voice.

Having too many photos can confuse your eyes and make you dart around the page too quickly because they compete for your attention. This ends up with none of them getting the attention that they deserve and the story gets lost in the process.

2. Embrace the negative space.
Part of not overcrowding your photos includes the negative space. This is what gives each picture the focus that they need so that your eyes will linger on each one. It’s also much easier to design each page when there are fewer pictures that compete for your attention.

3. Minimize fluff (and pick only your absolute favorites).
There’s sure to be dozens of pictures that your photographer has taken during the wedding, but they may feel a little repetitive. Each spread should have its own theme or portray one particular event. Pick the best three or four that showcase each theme or event, and place them in the page.

You should also take it easy with the spreads. Much like magazines, albums are made up of spreads that relate to each other by content or style, and helps to connect the album as a whole. If it helps, think of it as the “poetry” of the album, where is just as important as the order.

4. Keep it clean and simple.
Take it from us: the elegant/minimalist/“clean and simple” design is the only design that’s guaranteed to stand the test of time. You can add extra graphics, photo layering, and even fading to your photo album, but keep in mind that design trends are exactly that – trends – and they come and go with the years.

However, if you do decide to add graphics to your wedding album, make sure that they also share the same theme as the pictures themselves.

  • Wedding photography is perhaps one of the biggest investments that couples make in every wedding. It’s one of the first things to be prioritized and hiring a photographer (or a studio) can be quite expensive.

    But now that the wedding is over, what do you do with your photographs? Of course you need to get them printed and save a back-up in a flash drive, but what do you do with them afterwards?

    Well, you’re in luck. Here are a few creative ideas on how to use your wedding photographs:

    1. Cards
    Why not turn your favorite wedding snapshots can into great thank-you cards and holiday cards? Personalized greeting cards can be great for giving to friends and family on different occasions to remind them of the happy couple on their special day.

    Be sure to talk to your photographer if you’re not sure which pictures to choose.

    2. Calendar
    You can also make your gifts a lot more personalized by turning them into calendars or photo books. Take the opportunity to customize and have fun when choosing photos and grouping them together.

    Be sure to use artsy shots for your calendar or photo books, such as close-ups of your dancing shoes or your bride-and-groom fingers if you want a great shot of you showing off your rings.

    3. Art
    Don’t let the digitals sit on your hard drive! Print them instead and put them on display – one advantage to professionally taken pictures is that the high quality allows for them to be enlarged and hung on the wall like the works of art that they are. Before you go ahead and print the pictures that you want, be sure to take inventory.
    You won’t need to have a museum, but a chosen few favorite memories of the most special day of your life will be sure to lift you up and put a smile on your face whenever you look at them, especially when you’re having a bad day.

    4. Traditional Photo Albums
    And lastly, who could forget the traditional photo album? Though they’ve become a thing of the past these days because of the internet and digital storage, there’s just nothing like flipping through snapshots of memories that you can cherish for a lifetime.

    Whether you opt for special leather-bound albums to give to your wedding guests as memorabilia or have one made just for yourself, a physical album is something you won’t regret having – and you can even pass it down to the next generation as an heirloom.

  • You must have put quite a lot of effort in planning your most special day. You already have the dress, the bouquet, and the venue, but what about the wedding emcee? Hiring someone to make sure everything in your wedding reception runs smoothly is as important as searching for the perfect wedding gown. From making the speakers feel comfortable, to managing the flow of events in the program, a wedding emcee Singapore takes charge of everything so you can relax and be the guest of your own affair.

    So how do you make sure you hire the best wedding emcee? What are the points to look for? Here are a few tips to help you with the process.

    1. Voice and Presentation Skills

    This is something so simple, but the tone and pitch of voice can already differentiate a good emcee from a bad one. A wedding emcee with a squeaky or scratchy voice, or a very hard-to-understand accent, will only sound annoying to everybody’s ears. On the contrary, a deep and modulated voice will certainly catch attention and make a compelling atmosphere throughout the event. This is the reason why you should not book an emcee without first meeting him and talking to him at length.

    2. Sense of Humor

    Humor has always been a universal entertainment. A professional emcee should also serve as an entertainer who has the talent to encourage laughter and amuse people. Your emcee should know that laughter is the best way to unite families and friends that have not met for a long time and/or have not met at all. Being a humorous entertainer does not necessarily mean that the person should be able to throw a punch line every minute, but being able to build and sustain a warm and happy ambiance for everybody in the room.

    3. Calm Under Pressure

    A professional emcee is calm and composed at all times. When something unexpected happens, your wedding emcee should be able to react and handle the moment with finesse. For instance, filling the time with anecdotes, relevant stories, or sensible jokes as the next speaker readies himself for his turn. Notice the speed of corazon wedding emcee in Singapore and manner of talking as he answers your questions during the interview. Ask him complex questions and see how he reacts to these. From there, you will have an idea how he handles moments of surprises.

    4. Experience

    For this special day, hire someone who is already an established speaker. Though it doesn’t have to be in the field of weddings, it would still help a lot. Those who have experienced hosting events, or emcees who work in radio, certainly have the talent to speak to large crowd with ease, as well as charisma needed to set the mood of the room.

    5. Homework

    During the interview, ask him of the preparation routine he makes before a gig. His answer should include something like getting to know the important people involved in the event. A professional Singapore wedding emcee does his homework by knowing the family of the bride and groom so that he’ll be able to state factual matters and jokes related to the subject of the event. If the wedding emcee is familiar and in tune with the people in your reception, it will create an intimate atmosphere that brings your guests closer together.
