As a DIY bride, you can feel a little let down and lackluster once your wedding is over. But cheer up darlings because the fun is just beginning! You will absolutely love the process of making your own Premium Wedding Photo Book with Shutterfly! From the double-thick, premium professional-grade paper pages to the storytelling styles, premium designs, and embellishments, these albums are stunning. They can be a more affordable option than a photographer’s album, and extra special because you get to create it yourself. Shutterfly also sells a whole host of other fabulous personalizable gifts that are perfect for your new home as Mr + Mrs… and we’re showcasing our favorites today!
Premium Photo Book Heaven
I honestly can’t say enough about these beautiful, custom photo books. I’m not sure if I like the book, or the experience of making the book more! I absolutely love playing around with all of Shutterfly’s features, making my books and the story I’m telling with them, just perfect.
I created this gorgeous album using my good friend Ashley’s wedding photos and had such a fun time sifting through all her beautiful images, picking the perfect ones to tell her story of marrying Adam.
Shutterfly’s Storytelling Styles are the best thing since sliced bread. They’re a collection of 200+ beautiful, custom themes that include lovely backgrounds, awesome page ideas and fun design elements that allow you to create a stunning and unique book. For this book design I used a theme called Love Grows.
Pick The Path For You
Shutterfly offers 3 different paths for creating custom photo books:
- Make My Book Service: Their designers will curate your photos and make a special photo book just for you!
- Custom Path: The path that most DIY brides will choose, customize your photo book exactly the way you want it.
- Simple Path: Their unique software instantly arranges your photos for you, and then you can edit where you want to.
Ohh The Lay-flat Pages
One of my favorite details is the seamless, layflat pages – nothing is lost in the fold with these beauties! Just look how flat they fold… which ensures that all full spread photos look amazing. The pages of these books are extra thick too, making them look and feel much more expensive than they are.
Custom Gifts For Your New Home
Nothing will excite a new Mrs. like ordering special, custom things for her new home! Which is why Shutterfly.com needs to be your destination, right after you say I DO. Kick those “back from the honeymoon blues” with something pretty + personalized!
Mr + Mrs Has A Nice Ring To It
Since you are now Mr + Mrs, you need personalized champagne glasses… and a vase… and maybe a candle… and all the other things too! Shutterfly has so many darling gifty things that you can personalize for your new home, it’s almost too much fun. It’s also fun even if you aren’t a newlywed, as I ordered these gorgeous etched glasses for my neighbors who just got married and the vase is for me! Ordering special personalized gifts is always a good idea. And guess what!?! We’re giving away a $100 gift card below, which will go a long way!
How Cute Is This Candle
This darling candle smells just as good as it looks! I ordered the Ocean Breeze scent and it smells so good I’m tempted to keep it and not gift it to Ashley, lol. The next time I have a fabulous picture that deserves to be on a candle, I’ll definitely be ordering one for myself because Shutterfly makes the personalization process so fun and easy!
