For my cousin's 2006 wedding, my gift was a wedding scrapbook.
2 years and 4 months later... I FINALLY finished! I loved being able to give them this book. They got their wedding album as a Christmas gift this past year.
It turned out great, but I am never going to do that for a friend or family member again! It was so much work and so stressful. How would I know if they liked what I was doing? Getting all the digital photos from their family and friends turned our to be more difficult than I had originally imagined. Not to mention printing the images and organizing the photos. I think I would have felt more confident in my work if we lived closer to one another and the bride could see the work as it was being done. But she lives 1100 miles away and we only got to talk about design on the phone.
Anyway, they loved it! I'm so happy to have gotten it finished. :)
