Go to michaels of Joanns or similar store and look for a wedding album kit, should have all you need in one kit. This is a nice easy way to start, and see if you like scrapbooking. We here can't imagine you wouldnt like it! Pop in your photos, embellish, and show off. As you continue, you can branch off with different papers, techniques, etc! Enjoy!! -Chris

I started out that way, Chris! I got kits and made pages for my sister's wedding album. It developed into what it is today! Go for the kits, they give you the supplies you need to create the layouts they suggest for you. You can make changes where you see fit and that gets your creativity going so you can start doing layouts on your own. I still love kits, though, so easy to coordinate!

Welcome to scrapbooking! I started out with a disney trip and that is what started it all! There are so many great artists on here also and look at them for inspiration. One thing I learned is that some pages may take ahwile and some may be quick but dont get frustrated! Good luck a wedding is such a fun thing to scrap!

I have a suggestion, do your first album with copies of the original so if you don't like it, you can redo it later. I have digital copies of all of my pics, so when I want to do something, I run off a pic and make my page.

Congratulations on your marriage! Here is another plug for Creative Memories. They have a great album and coordinating papers for wedding albums. Geezzz you would think I am a creative memories consultant with the way I plug them. You can order online from them and have the products shipped to you.

Pre made kits are good so you don't have to woryy about matching things and papers, etc. Stores like MIchael, JoAnn or Hobby Lobby will have kits with the album as well. Right now they are 40% at MIchaels!

Just a thought - do you have pictures of when you were dating and other pictures to make into an album?

I would start with that so you can see what your style is and what is comfortable for you. Also, you will have more confidence starting your wedding album. And you will have a better feel for what you like if you "practice" on something else.

For me, I could not have jumped in with my wedding album as my first scrapbook. I had to "work up to it".

That's the reason I still haven't done my wedding album, six years later. Still perfecting my style!!

Gret idea about adding photos of the dating time, etc. Funny about still working on the style! Sounds like me!

When I started scraping I liked to buy kits. You can find ones with an album included and all of the embellishments, papers, stickers and die cuts you'll need. They are easy to find, try Michaels or even Walmart. You can also find some really awesome items at the dollar store. Have fun scraping!

Welcome to the forum! A marriage is the perfect occasion to start scrapbooking! How about something like a timeline showing events from your first date until the day you married?
