Here are four ways that A La Carte Albums will rock your wedding album needs #Sponsors#discount#wedding albums May 15 | Megan Finley meganfinley This business paid a fee to be listed on @offbeatbride because they feel their products and services are a great fit with offbeat philosophies… and we agree. Learn more about our ads. Even action figures in love choose A La Carte albums! Since we introduced you to sponsor A La Carte Albums back in November 2010, there have been a few awesome additions to the business that we're excited to tell you about. If you recall, A La Carte Albums' approach is kind of like album couture — they start with a (free no-obligation) chat about what you want from your wedding album, and then the owner Jane comes up with a number of different options to fit your vision. There's no fitting your album into template A or template B. (That's the "à la carte" part of A La Carte!) Keep reading to see the four ways A La Carte Albums will help you will make the daunting task of creating wedding albums a cinch. (Spoiler alert: one of them their special discount for Offbeat Brides.) Photo by Lilia Photography 1. Get the styles you want A La Carte offers a wide range of album options: A multitude of vegan/vegetarian cover materials Five different kinds of books, from the very traditional matted album to cutting-edge flush albums with metal covers And a design-only option for people wanting to use a budget-friendly service like Blurb.com. 2. Keep it within your budget A La Carte is committed to working with a wide range of budgets, from tight to luxurious. And always working within your chosen budget to get the effect you want, rather than trying to up-sell. As Jane put it, "You're going to be looking at your wedding album for a long time, I don't want people to look at it thinking 'if only I had made extra car payments instead.'"

Yup, from just basic improvements all the way up to major retouches (most popularly, wardrobe malfunction fixes — bending over to cut cake + strapless dress = a little more show than a lady wants.) Since that feature has become super popular A La Carte has now added the more-a-la-carte "DIY assistance" services for people who need just retouching, or just help editing their hundreds of wedding pictures down to a reasonable number for a book. 4. Save money OFFBEAT DISCOUNT: A La Carte Albums is still offering their 10% design discount for all customers who mention they found them via Offbeat Bride. So while there is total creative freedom when you create an A La Carte album, there is also a lot of hand-holding to prevent decision fatigue.
