It's impossible to overestimate the importance of a wedding album—think beyond sharing your most proudest moments on Pinterest, and imagine instead wowing your future grandchildren with a bound collection of beautiful photographs. These format examples explore the popular album options likely available through your wedding photographer as well as some low-fi DIY choices, plus a few possibilities from specialty custom artisans.

Custom designer album, $2,250

If you're ordering your album through your wedding photographer, you're typically allowed just one or two rounds of design changes—after that you may incur additional fees per page. Working directly with a custom book designer allows you to be more involved in the design process, but the privilege doesn't come cheap. This sleek design features flushmount images and a chic white leather cover. Album by Mac & Cheese Design
