When you’re planning your wedding, one of the most important things to consider is what kind of album you want to commemorate the event. A professional wedding album design service like Good Times Albums can help you create a beautiful and memorable wedding day album that will last for years to come. In this article we’ll cover some of the main reasons to get a wedding album and some of the questions you may have before starting the design process…
Cherish forever with the ultimate keepsake
Your big day is one of the most important days of your life. It’s a time when you and your partner commit to spending the rest of your lives together. And, it’s a day that you’ll want to remember forever. A wedding album is the perfect way to keep those memories alive.
We know that photos look great on a screen, but we think there’s something extra special about an album. Having something tangible and physical which captures precious moments should always be printed rather than stored digitally – don’t let your memories disappear! Wedding albums are the ultimate keepsake.
Wedding Albums are great for anniversaries
Not only do wedding albums make great keepsakes, they’re also perfect for anniversary gifts. If you’re looking for a unique anniversary present that will really wow your partner, a wedding album is the way to go. You can relive your wedding day all over again and see how much both of you have changed in the years!
Let’s get on with the answers to a few of your questions…
Will my wedding photographer supply me the wedding album?
Many wedding day professional photographers do offer album design services, but it’s important to confirm this before you book them. If they don’t offer this service, they may be able to recommend a reputable album design company. A typical price they may charge for a wedding photo album can start from £500. If you decide not to use your photographer for your album, make sure you receive the digital version of your photos, so when you are ready, you’ll be able to get the wedding photo book printed.
How many wedding photos should I purchase for my wedding album?
This is a difficult question as it really depends on how large you want your album to be and the kind of look you are going for. A good rule of thumb is to purchase around 100 – 150 photos, however some couples prefer to have more, so it’s really up to you.
How can I pick my favourite photos?
If you’re finding it difficult to narrow down your photos, we recommend asking your photographer for help. They will be able to guide you through the process and offer their professional opinion.

What other options are there for the perfect wedding album creation?
If you’re not quite sure that a professional wedding album design service is for you, there are other options available. You could create a photo book using a website like Milk Books or Cewe, or even print your own photos and create photo albums yourself. However, creating an album yourself can be time consuming and often other services are not hand made and won’t use high quality papers.
Why use a wedding album designer?
A designer will be able to work with you to create a beautiful and unique album that captures your personality as a couple. They will also be able to help you choose the right photos and provide guidance on how to arrange them in the album. Album designers have years of experience in creating stunning wedding albums, so you can be confident that your album will look fabulous.
How are wedding albums made?
The album design process starts with you selecting your favourite photos from your wedding day. Once you have chosen the photos you want to use, your album designer will work with you to create a layout that tells the story of your big day. They will also add any text or captions that you want to include in the wedding album. Once the album design is complete, your album will be printed and bound, hand made using only the finest materials.

What is the average cost of a wedding album?
The cost of a wedding album with Good Times Albums will vary depending on the size, style and materials used. A simple album can start from £80, but if you want something more luxurious, the price can be upwards of £600.
How many photos should be in a wedding album?
This is completely up to you, but we would recommend between 100-150 photos.
Whats the difference between a traditional album and a contemporary album?
Traditional wedding albums are typically made from leather or other high quality materials, and are often embossed with the couples names and wedding date. Contemporary wedding albums are more likely to be made from a photo book style, with layflat pages that give a seamless spread of photos across two pages. They may also come with custom slipcases and other finishing.
When should I order my wedding album?
We recommend ordering your wedding album within 3-6 months of your wedding day. This will give you time to choose your favourite photos and design the perfect album.
How long does it take to receive a wedding album
The design process usually takes one week, but once you have signed off the design, it will take around 2-4 weeks for your wedding album to be printed and bound. So, all in all, you should expect to receive your album 5 weeks after ordering. Start your order today, please browse the range here.
What size album should I go for?
This also depends on the number of photos you want to include, but we would recommend an wedding album size of 30cm x 30cm to give that true coffee table dream album. Check out our traditional square wedding album here.
Can I add more photos to my album after I have ordered?
Yes, you can always add more photos to your album at a later date, as long as it’s before the signed off design. Just get in touch with your album designer and they will be happy to help.
What if I can’t see a wedding album style that I like?
We have a wide range of wedding album designs to choose from, but if you can’t find what you’re looking for, Good Times Albums can create a bespoke dream wedding album for you. Just get in touch and let us know your ideas.
