Been working on a wedding album. I want to ask you all what you think of the layouts so far. She is a very plain jane kind of gal and her colors are navy blue and champagne with peacock. So odd this combo. I am having a hard time making it simple and nice. I am on a very limited budget too. $80 for time and supplies. It's for my sister to give her bff though so I am not so worried about the time.

Connie, too bad your sister didn't give you any photos to see/use so you could get a better flavor of the day, maybe individualize the reception pages......I find it hard to make a page if I don't at least have the visual cues to ignite the creative spark....the pages are lovely, and I do love the color combo.......was the color peacock feathers, sort of her theme?  I would pull the teal out and use it as accents with the background and mats the champagne and navy.......I love the swirlies as accents, and prima flowers that you can ink or color to match......diecuts of rings, toasting glasses, I love the wedding gown you have.....you can do a lot with embossing and solids and inking to create a lovely look for not a lot of money....for a wedding I would almost stick to solids, with patterns for borders and accents, you want the photos to be the focus anyway...so plain jane works great for a wedding.....I would do several single photo pages, for a larger photo, like one of the two of them coming down the aisle, cake cutting, first dance, a lovely single photo of the bride alone, groom alone.....and with a bigger photo, less need for embellishments, the photo stands out......that is what I have been doing for my wedding photos.......fortunately I have my colors, I would think of the navy and champagne as a black and white.....hope this has been helpful......it is just how I have been doing things....less is more for me.......

In that last layout with the pearls, you really get the effect of navy and champagne.  They are actually quite lovely together.  Seeing that, I would stick mostly with champagne, and use the navy and just a touch of teal for accent colors. 

I like Tobey's idea of designing pages for one large photo.  They can always put two where one large one would go, and it gives the option.

Nice job, Connie!
