You've dropped big bucks on the photographer of your dreams and spent countless hours planning your wedding ceremony and reception, so it should stand to reason that you'd want to showcase the beautiful photos of your big day. What do most couples do though? Create a classic white album that sits on their shelves only to be reviewed a few times a year. But we're here to let you in on a secret: Big day photos as epic as yours should be on display. In addition to creating a gorgeous album, here are six cool ways to show off your favorite shots everyday.
