Wedding Dress Shopping Scrapbook LayoutWedding dress shopping!  This is why I’m so happy to be including pre-wedding stuff in my wedding scrapbook.

Challenge 1: I had a ton of pictures from trying on wedding and bridesmaid dresses.  I wanted to create a sense that I tried on a lot of dresses without overwhelming the page.

Challenge 2: Some of the pictures were just okay.  I wasn’t that great at taking pictures back then.  Plus, I have some pictures of my bridesmaids in pretty random dresses and I know they would appreciate it if I didn’t blow them up to 5×7″.

Solution?  Lots of little rectangles.  This is very similar to the discussion I posted about using lots of little squares in a layout.

Wedding Dress Shopping Scrapbook LayoutI created a long vertical grid and cut the pictures to 1.8 x 1.25 inches.  To keep it interesting, I mixed in a few black and white ones.  The large color picture near the top is me trying on the dress that I ended up getting.

Fitting in Keepsakes:  This included the business card from the salon where I bought my dress, a swatch of my bridesmaids dresses, and paint chips that I picked up that day to match my wedding colors.
