Tying the Knot in a Meaningful and Memorable Way (Without Losing Our Savings or Sanity)

Trying Out Inkubook

I'm taking Inkubook up on their offer for a free book (with only $6.99 for shipping) for first-time members. I think it will make an excellent Christmas present for my parents and my in-laws.

[Editor's Note: Hm...I'm not very fond of the phrase "in-laws." What about "newfound family"?]

I sure hope neither sets of parents are reading this blog right now...

I'll let you know how the process goes. I'm currently trying to upload photos into my account. It's a little slow-going, but the good news is the program let me import pictures straight from my flickr account. That's a huge time-saver! I don't have to save them all from flickr unto my hard drive and then upload them. I have a massive flickr file folder where I asked all my guests to upload their pictures (see a description of that process here).

As a side note, if you're looking for gift ideas, you might consider making a calendar of photos through Snapfish. It's a super-easy process, and I do it every year for my mom. I simply upload 12 photos from that year. Snapfish turns it into a beautiful calendar. She hangs it in her office at work, which gives her fodder for what many mom's like to do: talk about their children with passerbys.

Great ideas, I love the calendar. We used to make one for my grandparents & each month had pictures of people in the family who had birthdays that month. We loved it so much we just pasted new months over the dates each year!

I'm planning to have a photo book of our couple pictures from our trips & things for guests to look through, with descriptions. I've seen ideas where you have the photos on one page & a lined page across from it for guests to sign, a la a guest book!

Thanks for the links AND the ideas - I have just recently been introduced to Photobooks and am trying to find the right one...

(Love your blog too!)
