Along with all of the pictures that capture the special moments and people of your big day, journaling add a lot to a wedding album.  As years pass, you may not be able to recall some of the things that happened that day, so journaling in your wedding album can be especially important.  Of course you will want to include who is in the pictures in your album, but here are some other questions you may want to answer to add some interest:

bulletHow did the two of you meet?
bulletWho popped the question and how/where did it happen?
bulletHow long was your engagement?
bulletHow did your family's react to the news of your engagement?
bulletWho did you tell first?
bulletHow did you decide to get married on the day you did?
bulletHow did you choose the place for your wedding?
bulletWhat kind of day was it?

bulletWho were your attendants and how do you know them?
bulletWhat special songs were played during the wedding?

He Said, She Said
Sometimes it is interesting to include "He Said, She Said" pages in your wedding album.  This may be especially interesting if the two of you don't agree on exactly how things happened.  You may want to try this for the following:

bulletWho popped the question and how it happened
bulletWhen you first fell in love with each other
