These twelve wedding ideas will get your creativity going for scrapbooking wedding albums.
Creating gorgeous "wow" factor pages for your engagement, ceremony, and reception photos has never been more simple or more exciting. It will astonish you how easily your gorgeous bride and groom photos can be put together on a page with the Mosaic Moments® system. The grid is the basis for perfectly aligned wedding pages. And the sky's the limit for what you can design. Take lots of photos of your lovely bride, groom, family, and friends; then try some of these great examples.
Keep scrolling to see them all.
1. Feature the Bridal Portraits
Okay, this first idea for scrapbooking weddings is obvious: make a bridal layout.
But there's much to note, especially with this great example above. Look at how the bridal photos are balanced on the page and in the actual composition of the photographs. On the top of the page, you have three pics of the bride. The right and left photos are very similar to one another, and they frame the focal photo of the bride. Below this, the bottom photo is centered and is unique shot of the bride and her bouquet. The horizontal photo focuses on other details as well, like the trim on the waist of the bride's dress and her nails, for example. This photo composition adds balance and interest to the layout.
That's one of the great things about Mosaic Moments® - there's lots of room for interesting photos and details.
2. Do a Layout of the Groom
"The Groom" by Jodi Benson
Your groom deserves a spot in the sunshine on the big day too.
A Groom layout looks great with strong lines and graphic dies with masculine colors that compliment and/or match the wedding colors. Jodi used a dark grey/blue grid, the Craftsman Dies, and (green, gold, & white) cardstock colors that all fit this bill. Mosaic Moments® scrapbooking makes masculine pages so simple with the perfectly aligned grid paper and strong graphically designed dies.
So, don't leave the men out of your wedding scrapbooking even if you're the mom of the bride. 😉
3. Include the Parents of the Bride & Groom
Your Mom and Dad will definitely need a pic or two on your wedding layouts.
If you have been married for a while, you know happily ever after includes navigating a relationship with your in laws. By placing them on your wedding layout, you are making a great step toward the wedded bliss you imagined. The parents play a huge role in both the bride and grooms's life and they need a spot on the page too!
4. Use Photos of the Rings
Take a good photo of the symbols of forever: the rings.
Eternity seems too short when you get married to your soul mate, so be sure to take interesting pictures of the bride and grooms rings for an epic wedding scrapbooking page. Jodi made the ring photos just as large as the other 3x5 (3.25x5.5 inches) photos on this layout. This adds to the interesting and eye catching composition of this page.
Bonus: the center row of bridal shots look so stunning - you can do this idea with your favorite 2x4 die!
5. Make a Layout Worth Framing
A layout like this one, would be a wonderful gift for a newly wed couple or 1 year anniversary.
Sometimes, you need only one or two photos for a page worth framing. Jodi has a gorgeous long shot of the young couple with the lush greenery in the background. She also has a few close up pics of the colorful blooms that were on site. She used the flower photos as a mosaic to frame the focal photo of this happy couple. She then finished the layout with detailed pattern paper and embellishments.
This wedding scrapbook page is frame-worthy despite being very easy for you to recreate with your own bride and groom.
6. Make a Mosaic of the Bouquet
Be sure to get a few close up photos of the bride's bouquet - they'll make excellent mosaics.
Jodi used 1 inch squares and the T-Square Corner Cut-Out dies to make a mosaic frame with her bride's bouquet around the two large 4x6 photos. This stunning layout looks like it belongs on an easel. A page like this is a work of art, and you'll love it as much as you loved making the memories.
7. Make Daybreak Your Go-To Die
If you are looking for the best die to add pizzazz to your wedding pages - be sure to grab the lovely Daybreak die.
The focal photo looks so stunning framed in the Daybreak die design. We love how Jodi added the orange-red on the sides and the green pattern paper. You can simply add a 4x6 block behind the daybreak die or add in different papers in the little sections. Either way the bride & groom will love it!
8. Place Portraits in A Row
A great technique to use for your wedding pages is to place same sized photos in a row across your layout.
You'll be able to capture a time sequence, and be able to see all the differences in your photos which will add interest to your layout. On the layout above, Paije used the Arches die set to frame her 2x3 grid sized (2.125x3.25 inch) photos. You can see all the different poses and expressions of the bride and groom so clearly when they are placed together like this. You don't even have to think about excluding any of your wedding shots with the Mosaic Moments® scrapbooking system.
It's such a sweet memory to capture on one page in your wedding scrapbook album.
9. Use Black & White Photos
Black and white photos still make a big impact on your wedding layouts.
They give your wedding scrapbook a timeless feel. When you use colorful elements along with your black and white photos, it will add a beautiful contrast to the layout. Paije used floral paper cropped in large 2.125x2.125 inch blocks with a coordinating title and pattern paper strips to add color.
Black and white photos with colored pattern paper will be a technique you'll love for your wedding photos.
10. Feature the Guests & Family
The guests celebrating the bride and groom need to be remembered too.
Looking back, you'll wish you had a page of who was there to support and celebrate the young (or young at heart) couple. Take lots of pics of the guests and your family that attend because with Mosaic Moments® scrapbooking, you'll be able to use all of your photos to make art. Jodi used the Sweetheart dies to frame and weave its way with heart shapes through her photos of the guests and venue at the wedding.
You can create many similar pages with your family and guest photos.
11. Make a Layout for Grandma
You'll love featuring your Grandma and Grandpa on a wedding page.
There's a special bond between grandparents and their grandchildren and it'll be a treasured keepsake in your album or on display in your home. Jodi made sure to include the bride and bridesmaids as well as the beautiful couple to tell the wedding story. All photos are framed within the Soleil circle on this layout.
12. Create a Panorama on Your Wedding Page with a Specialty Die
If you haven't tried making a wedding layout with the Cathedral Dies you are in for a treat.
These are Adventure Level (L3) Dies that are perfect for an elegant wedding scrapbook page. If you don't have this set, the same idea can be done with other dies as well. Here, Paije used the Cathedral dies to crop three photos to make it look like one full page width panorama photo. She carefully aligned the horizon of similarly distanced pics, and cut each photo with the dies. She cut her pattern paper with the same dies too, to get that little extra bit of color. The top section of the page unifies with the bottom, where the large 4x6 focal photo is matted with the same paper. It creates a stained glass effect with the little diamonds of pattern paper and the photos in the rest of the design spots of the die.
Bonus: Notice how the three center photos are set at an angle for an extra pop of interest to this dazzling layout.
This Layout Features: 12x12 Rain Grid Paper (Lazy Days Collection), Cathedral die set, Flower dies from Scallop Frame Plus Die Set 3x3, Layering Die Bundle, and the Basic Die Bundle. Pattern Paper from Carta Bella™.
