There are various products that are available that can serve as an alternative to wedding albums. One of them is the revolutionary Coffee Table Wedding Photo Book. This consists of wedding photographs of your choice that are printed on your choice of Kodak lab print or digital offset paper. The pages are then sewed and bound in the form of a book. They are called coffee table books as they are bound in such a way that when they are opened, they open flat just like the glossy glamour magazines you get in salons.
The second alternative is Video DVDs. With the advent of DVDs more and more couples are opting to document their wedding with sound and video. You can customize your video the way you want. This method is the cheapest option. However, whichever option you choose, you need to get a signed release from your photographer. He must give you permission to use those images. If you are intending to use these alternative options later, then make sure you get the permission before hand to save on time. Some couples buy their negatives on the spot to save future hassles.
