Album Phrases

Kari Douma - Grand Rapids, Michigan , May 28, 2006; 08:47 p.m.

Those of you who design digital albums with phrases on the pages... where do you find the phrases? I think adding a few phrases (no... not on every page) can really enhance the album. Adding things like "Forever and Always..." or "This day I will marry my friend..." on the pages really adds to the emotion of the album. I have heard of adding some of the personally written vows, or the words to the song of their first dance. But what else? I want a variety to choose from so my albums are not cookie cutter albums. I have spent the last 2 hours searching for meaningfull phrases or quotes, and have not found many. What do you guys do?

Hi Kari.......nice shot....some that come to mind

Bridesmaids only picture.........

"Girls just want to have fun"

others.... "Love and Laughter, Happily everafter" "you are my love, my life, my everything" "to have and to hold....." "from this day forward....." "for better or for worse....." "with this ring....."

I'm sure I have more up my sleeve, I'll let you know.

Good luck Dolly

Love ... binds Everything together in Perfect Harmony.

(placed on a collage that make the words "resonate")

"Today, Tomorrow, & Always"

"Love never fails...."

"These are the hands..." is from the popular verse that is often read during the vows. I've changed this piece to make it unisex, it had read "his" rather than the "eachothers" I inserted.

These are the hands....

David Schilling - Chicago, Illinois , May 28, 2006; 10:57 p.m.

Ooooops, wrong image. Here's the verse: "These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, for a lifetime of happiness. These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes: tears of sorrow and tears of joy. These are the hands that will tenderly lift your chin and brush your cheek as they raise your face to look into eachotherï¾’s eyes: eyes that are filled completely with an overwhelming love and desire for you."

Thanks guys... keep them coming. I was hoping someone would have that perfect website that had a bunch of phrases on it. Something like a scrapbookers site, or on a website with wedding ideas. I did search, but couldn't find much. I did find some, but not anything great. But, keep the ideas coming!

I'm sorry, but I think phrases like that are sooooo cheesy! In fifty years it's going to be like people saying 'groovy' or something nowdays. Silly.

Kate Rolonson , May 29, 2006; 01:36 a.m.

I like some phrases. ones like "with this ring" can't go out of style. for longer poems I'd stick to what the bride and groom have printed in their programs, recited at ceremony etc. I was also thinking that if they were religious you could use bits from Corinthians about love or scripture used at the wedding. The other thing you could do is more like a story book with titles "almost ready" "throwing the garter" things like this might be okay... like a header even. I'm a scrapbooker myself, and when scrapbooking use someitmes just one word phrases like "smile" or "wow"

David Schilling - Chicago, Illinois , May 29, 2006; 08:36 a.m.

Excuse me,.... just who are we to tell the B/G that a phrase that they like/love/want in THEIR book is cheesy? Just like some of the images that a photographer deems as "cheesy", all this does is offer the clients more options and more choices. Sometimes less isn't more.

BTW, "Love never fails..." is not cheesy, it's powerful religous verse.
