Let me ask you a question: what would you rather receive for a wedding gift? A set of knives OR a large, beautiful, leather-bound wedding album with thick, hinged pages and your favorite wedding photos on every page?
If you would rather have the latter, then this blog post will make you happy! One of the ideas that I took away from WPPI and that I am starting immediately is the Milla C. Wedding Registry!
The purpose of the Milla C. Wedding Registry is to allow your guests to purchase photo artwork or products as a wedding gift! We will offer professional print sets, photo cards, photo artwork (such as framed prints, canvas prints, and standout mounted prints) as well as full albums and album upgrades on our registry.
What do I mean by album upgrades? For example, our standard wedding albums are either 11x14in or 12x12in with 20 sides. Well, if you would like a larger album or more cover options, guests can give you additional spreads or a size upgrade as a wedding gift! See the possibilities?!
How much more FUN is that than a set of pillowcases?! Heck yes!
This is how it works:
The Milla C. Wedding Registry is free-of-charge for our clients. All you have to do is the following:
1) If you would like to have a gift registry through Milla C. Photography, we will discuss which products you would like included in your registry. Then, I will send you a stack of cards to include in your save-the-dates, party invitations, etc. free of charge. These cards will indicate that you have set up a registry through Milla C. Photography. And, they will give your guests instructions for ordering photo products for you.
2) Your guests will contact us to place their order, and we will send each guest a card (to give to you) indicating that they purchased a wedding gift through Milla C. Photography.
3) After your wedding, we will present you with a list of the products your guests have purchased for you. And, we will discuss how you’d like to personalize them/combine them (for example, if you get two small canvas prints, we can combine those orders so you can have one large canvas to hang over your couch!)
4) We are also offering photo bridal parties – ask me more about it!
Okay… enough information for now? Just contact me if you’d like to start getting this set up for your wedding guests!
Just to whet your appetite, here are more beautiful photos from our album company with some possible updates that your guests could give you as a gift!
Albums can be upgraded to include two or three leather colors! You can look at our samples to decide which colors you like together:
In addition to more colors, you can have more photos on the cover! Ahhhh the possibilities are endless…
Instead of having a leather cover, you can upgrade to an armour cover! Your photo on a metal cover! Awesome.
As usual, check out out all our album options here. Feel free to contact me for information about our other photo products!
