If you have a limited budget though, you may just take the wedding photos yourself. If you are not the type to take the center stage and take their pictures, try to search for their photos and put them together. You can try and do the AVP by showing everyone how their love story happened. For added humor, you may slip some fun but wholesome pictures of the two.
Thanks to the help of digital photography since doing this does not mean you will have to scramble through the pages of old photo albums inside the attic. Once you have all the pictures ready, just produce copies for the album or the scrap book. You can even give your gift after the wedding if you want to add the pictures of the wedding itself.
if you want to take it to the next level, you may want to use a handycam instead of a digital camera. After all the messages have been recorded just put this in a CD and ready to play during the wedding. You may also print copies of covers for the DVD case. If you still can, ask for the help of the wedding photographer.
No matter what gift you give to the couple, make sure that these are things or actions that they will certainly enjoy. Your gift is perfect if you do so.
