Parent Albums Explained For Brides

Albums

One of the best ways to say “thank you” to your parents for their love and support during your wedding planning (and more) is through a parent album. Your wedding day is such an important day for you and your spouse, but it’s just as important to your parents! As a parent myself now, nothing would make me happier after my daughter’s wedding than to have an album of her wedding day to re-live again and again, and I’m sure any parent would feel the same way. After all, I think you can agree that parents don’t want to sit in front of a computer looking at an online gallery. Parents, more than anyone, value tangible albums that you can touch and feel, and I don’t blame them! Looking through our wedding album is always so special to me.

If you’re wondering how parent albums work, you’re not alone. Some of the most common questions I get from couples is regarding just that. How big are they? How many pages do they include? Are they duplicate copies of the main album? Do my parents get to choose the images? Today I thought I’d share some insight into the parent album process.

Parent Album Options

To start, you’ll want to pick a size for your parent albums. There is no right or wrong size for parent albums. We offer albums in three sizes: 8″x8″, 10″x10″, and 12″x12″ and parent albums can be designed in any of those sizes. Most couples opt for a 10″x10″ or an 8″x8″ for their parents. The three sizes are pictured below in linen:

The Album Design

Once your own wedding images are finalized, you’ll meet with our design team on a video call to customize your parent’s album. This will allow you to ensure the design layouts are to your liking and the photo choices will be perfect for your parents.

The Cover Options

Just like wedding albums, parent albums can be made with a variety of cover options and can include an inset cover photo and/or imprinting. Once your design is finalized, our design team will go over cover options with you and you can choose to add them on if you’d like.

The album design process is very streamlined and completed over a 2-2.5 hour video call. Once the design is approved and the cover options are finalized, we send the album to print and the lab will handcraft your wedding album. You can have the parent albums delivered straight to your parents, or you can have them delivered to you so that you can give it to them in person and see their big smiles when they sit down to re-live your wedding day.
