Scrapbook Wedding Layouts : 5 Beautiful Ideas!
Scrapbook wedding layouts are almost as stressful to create as the big day itself!
But whether you recently got married or perhaps came across your wedding photo album from years ago, a wedding scrapbook album is a creative way of displaying some of the very best photos from your special day. The album will highlight the special parts of your big day.
If you need some scrapbook ideas for wedding, then here’s five fast ideas to help you make a layout or album that you’ll cherish for many years to come.
Idea #1. Create a Beautiful First Page For Your Scrapbook Wedding Layouts!
Use a heart wedding scrapbook layout as you begin your scrapbook.
To create a stunning first page, begin with a solid background, using a color from your wedding.
Adhere a 5″ by 7″ wedding photo in the center of the page. Take a second sheet of scrapbook paper, either white or a pale version of your background paper, and create a border around all four sides with a heart shaped punch.
In the center of the page, carefully cut out a heart so that the opening can be used to frame the photo. (You might want to cut a heart out of stock paper and trace around it.)
Adhere the heart cutout page to the background paper. Center a tiny bead or sequin in every other heart of the border. Using a thin white ribbon, create a border around the large heart.
At the top of the page, put “Our Wedding Day”. At the bottom of the page, put the date. If you don’t want to do the words free handed, type out the information on clear labels and adhere.
Idea #2. Embellish Your Scrapbook Wedding Layout With White
Choose a wedding themed background paper for your layout of photos of the bride getting dressed.
Mat each photo with black card stock. Trim each mat with lacey white ribbon. Also create black journal boxes and journal with a silver marker. Trim the journal boxes with ribbon as well. Embellish the page with white buttons, white tiny flowers, and/or white hearts.
Idea #3. Introducing Mr. and Mrs
Capture the moment of sealing the deal!
Begin with scrapbook paper that has kissing lips, “I love you”, or some other wedding related theme. Across the middle of the page adhere three matted photos: bride and groom exchanging vows, bride and groom kissing, and the announcement of being husband and wife.
Using silver sequins and tiny die cut hearts, create a scalloped design toward the top of the page, widthwise. With die cut letters or ribbon, create a large “Mr. & Mrs.” and center above the photos. Under the photos journal about the ceremony.
Idea #4. Make it fun (show your personality!)
For a clever wedding scrapbook layout of your wedding cake, enlarge a photo of your wedding cake and carefully cut around the cake. For the wedding topper, cut a photo of the bride and groom and place it on top of the cake.
In the bottom left and right corner of the page, adhere two matted photos of the couple cutting the cake and feeding the cake to each other. Use a solid background that matches one of the colors from the cake and a scalloped white border. Add your journal writing and you’re done.
Idea #5. Accent each of your scrapbook wedding layouts (but don’t go overboard!)
For a special wedding scrap book, choose background paper that is white/gray/black. For example, you might choose white paper that has “I love you” written across the page in rows in gray. Use the same background for each spread (the two side by side pages).
Most weddings have at least one color for the bride maids’ dresses, but quite often two colors are used. Using the colors from your wedding, accent each page by including the color(s) in your borders, mats and embellishments. These accents will make the color from your photos really pop.
Scrapbook wedding ideas are endless. For more ideas, go online and do a search.
The next time you’re at a craft store you might find a free brochure that shows a couple of wedding scrapbook layouts. You can also check out a craft magazine. The important thing is that you create each page or spread in a unique way that reflects your personality and style.
Before you begin adhering items to your page, lay everything out first. Move things around until you’re satisfied with how the page looks. Lastly, remember to keep things simple. Unlike a photo album that is page after page filled with photos, your wedding scrapbook will highlight a handful of photos that you believe captures your special day. Go easy with the embellishments and keep your pages in sequence.
And finally – don’t forget to spend some time on your journaling 🙂 There’s a helpful article we’ve written here to help you.
Utilize these ideas and you’ll create one very special wedding scrapbook!
