Finishing touches – to name or not to name?
Are you the kind of person who puts a bow on a present once you’ve wrapped it? Do you underline the name you’ve written on the envelope? If you are, then you know all about the importance of finishing touches.
In the world of bespoke wedding albums there are a few ways to truly personalise the album to make it yours and yours only. All the manufacturers I work with give you a wide choice of beautiful fabrics for the cover, and plenty of colour choices within each material. But the real decision is whether to leave the cover plain or put something on it.
There are always a few choices (that’s the nature of bespoke of course), and I’m happy to advise on what will look best to suit the cover and colour you’ve chosen. You’ll have a choice of fonts too, and the choice should match the style of the wedding. (As a very rough rule of thumb, serif fonts if you’re more traditional, sans serif if you’re more modern).
Of course, you can decide to make a statement by keeping the cover plain. This Queensberry matted album is as traditional as it gets, but makes a huge statement by not putting anything on the royal blue leather cover. And why not, when it looks this good. After all, it worked for the Beatles’ White Album didn’t it?!
Ultimately the decisions you take should match your own personal taste and reflect what we’ll see in the wedding photos. What we see when we open the box should prepare us for the journey to come as we go through the album itself.
