Scrapbook Layout: Wedding Scrapbook Rehearsal & Dinner Layouts

Wedding Rehearsal ScrapbookAlright folks, this is it for pre-wedding layouts.  I can’t believe it!

This section of my wedding scrapbook is finished off with our rehearsal and rehearsal dinner.  It was absolutely necessary to use a ton of photos, so I knitted a bunch of them together on an orange background.

Originally, I was going to put the rehearsal on one page and the dinner on the other.  Orderly.  Instead (so very unlike me) I mixed everything up because the rehearsal pictures all together would look sort of boring.

There is a ton going on here and I’ll point out some of the features.  First, a headline cut out with the Silhouette.  I decided to put it directly over the picture.  Trust me, it’s easier to read in person.

Wedding Rehearsal ScrapbookThere are 2 separate blocks of text, one about the day in general and one about the gifts we gave to our wedding party and families.

Our invitation was a PDF (more on that later).  I shrank down the PDF to print 4 pages on one sheet:

Wedding Rehearsal ScrapbookWrapping it all up, here is the finished product.  I’m happy with the nice mix of people, decorations, the gifts we gave and all the fun:

  1. With that many photos, I would be frantic about visual overload, but I think you struck the right balance here. Well done! I especially love the black and white photos along the bottom; they add a “frame” to the page. You are making me want to go back and redo my own wedding album 🙂

    • No, don’t redo yours! I never look back on projects and even though so of my old stuff isn’t as refined as my new stuff, I just chalk it up to it showing the evolution of the craft.

  2. I just love all the details on this page– the booklet, the black-and-white photo strip… And the way you surrounded your photo “grid” with whitespace really makes it so elegant.
