Overwhelmed by the post-wedding process of organizing your wedding album? It’s natural – in fact, the daunting task of putting the album together is often postponed or altogether abandoned. Try to tackle it as soon as the photographs arrive.
Most photographers will present you with an online gallery to facilitate the selection process. Edit carefully to keep your budget down and remember that any special effects will add costs.
Bind the album itself in durable material such as leather or fabric and include acid-free paper, matting and taped corners to secure each photograph. For a personal touch, add a monogram or silk ribbon. The sooner you complete your album – the most tangible documentation of the wedding day – the sooner you can show it off. So get started! - XO, Vera

Here's how to make this trend work for your wedding day:
Try a delicate platinum drop earring with stones clustered to look like a flower. Or, incorporate this trend into your wedding band to symbolize the season you were married in, and choose a style set in platinum that evokes the gentle curve of a flower’s petals.
