Spicing Up Your Wedding Scrapbook

Photos may be the core of a wedding scrapbook, but there are many other nuances that help document the magic of your big day. Personally, I think journaling is a huge component of wedding scrapbooks. When done correctly, journaling can transform an ordinary wedding scrapbook into a personal storybook that can be passed down through the generations.

When adding journaling blocks to your wedding scrapbook it’s a good idea to add more than a few anecdotes. Rather, consider the questions your future children and grandchildren might ask when flipping through the pages, such as:

*Why did you select the people in your bridal party?

*What special relationships did you have with them and/or what unique traits did they possess to make you want them to be a part of such a special day?

*If you could change one thing about your wedding day what would it be?

*Which guests made your day even more special?

*What, if any, unexpected moments took place on your wedding day?

*Where were you when you first referred to your beloved as your husband/wife?

*How did you cope with pre-wedding jitters?

*What were you thinking when you walked up the aisle to meet your future husband?

*If you could change one thing about your wedding day what would it be?

If journaling is not your cup of tea, there are other ways you can add sentimental notes to your layouts. Simply find romantic quotes and poems that reflect how you felt on your special day. You can copy them in your own handwriting or print them out on handmade specialty paper and adhere them to a specific page design. Another option is to simply copy parts of the love letters you received from your beloved during your courtship. You could also store the letters in their entirety in scrapbook pockets located at the back of your book or at the bottom of certain pages.
