You've been busy selecting your signature cocktails, the perfect dress and the most beautiful florals for your bouquet. Another important task—finding a gorgeous photo album to chronicle your wedding journey—can sometimes get lost amidst the other priorities. This is especially true since we tend to think of getting a photo album after the wedding—and even then it can fall through the cracks. That's why it's a great idea to get ahead of it all and find an album that inspires you to organize all your photos and create a special keepsake at the same time.

Beyond your professional photos, you’re probably going to want something to look back on that’s a little more concrete than just the highlight reel on your best friend’s Insta story. A beautifully bound book—filled with a mix of images from your photographer, candid shots from friends, and fun photo-booth pics from the reception—is something you'll cherish for many years to come. A wedding photo album is also a great personalized gift for friends or family members who are getting married themselves—they'll think of you every time they open it.

Here, the best wedding photo albums to help preserve your favorite photos.
