1. The Style – Flush Mount vs. Layflat Wedding Albums

The style of your wedding album not only impacts its visual appeal but also how you experience the memories within. While there are several wedding album styles to choose from, layflat and flush mount albums are the most popular high-end choices.

Flush mount wedding albums feature professional photo paper mounted on cardboard sheets for luxuriously thick pages that lie completely flat when open, allowing you to showcase panoramic spreads without any interruption by the center seam. This style helps enhance the visual impact of your most important wedding photos and provides a more immersive viewing experience. While layflat wedding albums also feature pages that lie completely flat to display uninterrupted images, their pages are not mounted on cardboard sheets, making them less rigid and more flexible. The choice between the two then becomes a matter of budget and style, with flush-mount albums offering the ultimate in opulence and durability, and layflat albums prioritizing a balance between quality and value.

2. The Foundation – Choosing The Right Paper For Your Premium Album

When it comes to choosing a paper type for your wedding album, you really get what you pay for. Premium wedding albums typically come with high-quality, archival paper that not only enhances print quality but also ensures the longevity of photos. Examples of archival paper include Silver Halide Paper, which offers the widest range of colors and outstanding density, making it the perfect choice for luxury photo albums.  These papers come in a number of finishes such as Lustre (shine with impressive contrast), Silk (reduced sheen) or Art Velvet (a deep-matte tactile finish), so pick one that resonates with your style.

3. The First Impression – Timelessly Elegant Wedding Album Cover Choices

The cover is the first thing that you and others will see when encountering your wedding album. It not only establishes the aesthetic for your entire album, but also serves as a complement to the color scheme and theme of your wedding day, or the décor of your living space.

To elevate your wedding album to an heirloom quality piece, pay special attention to your choice of cover. Genuine leather, with its timeless elegance, offers a tactile experience that evolves over time. For those drawn to a softer touch, linen provides a romantic feel and adds texture to a visual narrative. Velvet adds a touch of glamor and microsuede offers a rich feel. Alternately, acrylic or glass covers embrace a modern aesthetic, for a look of contemporary luxury. Ultimately, your cover choice will be an enduring statement of your style, so make it count.

5. The Unveiling – Preserving Your Wedding Album For A Lifetime

After your wedding album is complete, don’t overlook the importance of protecting it, to ensure that it lasts a lifetime. Try to store your album in a cool, dry environment, away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures, as these may cause fading and deterioration over time. Also remember to always handle your album with clean hands to prevent oil and dirt from transferring onto its pages. Finally, consider protecting it in a hardcover presentation box – PikPerfect’s beautiful wedding album boxes are handcrafted from linen, microsuede, velvet or leatherette fabric, and made to perfectly match your album cover, for yet another layer of exclusivity.
