CROWDFUND YOUR WEDDING ALBUM!
A beautiful wedding album
gifted to you by your wedding guests!
Album Registry is a simple way for your family and friends to contribute to the memories of your wedding day.
You are given your own personal Album Registry Account that family and friends contribute money too that they already were going to give you as your wedding gift.
Then after the wedding, you use those funds to put towards your Wedding Album.
“We wouldn’t have forked out two grand for a wedding album,
it’s a luxury item at the end of the day.
Being told that our guests can fund our wedding album,
it just seemed like the best idea ever.”

“If I was to give money for a page in someone’s album,
I would feel like I’ve given them something so much more meaningful.”
WHY IS A WEDDING ALBUM IMPORTANT?
Throughout history, albums have served as an essential record of a family’s history. Nowhere else can a person find so many authentic photos of relatives and friends engaged in a day full of romance or significant events. By creating an album and printing your photos, you will be contributing to your family history by ensuring that future generations have a tangible record of how their family came to be over time. While it may be hard to imagine your children and grandchildren so far down the road, it is likely that your wedding album will one day be passed down to them.
BUT DIGITAL IS THE WAY TO GO, A USB IS FINE. RIGHT?
It’s hard to believe that only 10 years ago that VHS video was phasing out. In the last couple of years DVD drives have been removed from Mac computers. How long before USBs are phased out too? The world is already moving to Cloud storage. The digital age is changing so quickly, which means, while we are storing things on smaller and smaller devices, and the risk of harddrives and media devices failing, we run the risk of losing our digital files and precious memories. More people are using their mobile phones with smaller screens to view online content including their wedding photos. An album is a beautiful, tactile way to view, share and remember your special day.
WHAT’S THE BENEFIT OF USING ALBUM REGISTRY?
Most couples already live together these days and have all the household items they need. To save guests from the heartache of what wedding gift to get you or worse get you a gift you don’t like and will never use, make it easy for your guests and get the wedding gift you want – an album full of your wedding day memories.
The added bonus of Album Registry, allows family and friends who would like to send their best wishes but can’t attend the wedding day, to still be apart of the day through their contribution to your Album Registry account. For example with an album, we print the names of the people gifting you in your album.
Think of Album Registry as a secure way to accept gifts from your family and friends in the form of money, allowing you to get an album that you necessarily couldn’t afford otherwise. Its really simple to setup and a beautiful way for your family and friends to contribute to something you really want. You are already burdened with the expense of putting on the wedding, this simply allows your guests to fund your wedding album or wall art to hang on the walls in your home.
HOW DOES ALBUM REGISTRY WORK?
Album Registry works a little like the traditional wedding gift registry, but more inline with modern technology, so no need to have cash lying around on the wedding day.
On registering with Album Registry, you will be issued with a unique link for your personal Album Registry account, along with a quantity of custom printed cards containing your link, that you can include with the wedding invitations. The link can also be easily shared online.
Family and friends simply enter the link into their web browser and after entering your wedding date, it will direct them to your Album Registry account where they can then contribute any amount of money.

AFTER THE WEDDING, WHAT HAPPENS?
After the wedding, all funds contributed can then be put towards any of our products – a wedding album, parent albums, wall art and so on. View one of our beautiful wedding albums below.
“We’ve got everyone’s names that were part of the wedding in the book,
that are always going to be part of this gift.”
