to want to do wedding album now, straight after wedding? DH says wait 6 months...

Post wedding am feeling excited. One of the gifts was a really expensive album, you know the kind... made of unicorn hair and rabbit's dreams.
DH saus we need to wait for six months to carefully pick photos as people change their mind after wedding. The thing is the gift allows fifty photos but I want 70 which we'll need to pay extra for.
Am I just caught up in post wedding excitement?

Why does your DH want to wait 6 months? What does he think you'll both change your mind about? Whether you still like your guests?!!
I hate to tarnish your new marriage, but I think your DH just can't be arsed and is trying to come up with good reasons not to do the album.
Don't get the 50/70 thing.

Been married years and years and years, but 'the album' still gets looked at occasionally, more in later years, and especially around significant anniversaries.
I think DH is probably a bit 'weddinged out' at the moment so why don't you make a start and ask him to have look when you've got on with it a bit, rather than trying to engage his enthusiasm straight away.
Having said that, 70 photographs!!!!! IMO way toooo many. You might enjoy looking at them, but your audience will have gone to sleep, gone home, gone to heaven before you're a quarter through. 20 good ones and a few funnies is plenty.
Congratulations on your marriage.

Ours sits forlornly under the bookcase, occasionally retrieved by the kids to ooh and aah over!
I can't see why you'd need 70 pictures of your day in an album, unless you did lots of those swoony pictures up against trees and wandering through meadows looking longingly at each other.

Do it now.
If you can afford it - go for the 70 photos.
I kept my expensive album at the specified limit (can't remember what it was now) but then made a second (cheaper) album online myself with all the other photos.
Don't wait to do it either. If you wait it will never get done. Which is why, almost 3 years later, I still haven't made an honeymoon album.
