I used blurb last December and was really impressed with the finished product.
I have used Photobox and Tescos as well, Photobox when I used them was all done online which I found a pain in the backside to use, Tescos photobook software I found to be incredibly slow (even on an I7 based PC) and inflexible.
Blurbs software seemed far better than anything else I tried and offered some good standard layouts as well as the ability to do custom ones although this is going back 10 months ago so things may have changed.
To me there are two factors the quality of the final product and of course the ease and flexability with which the book can be put together.
Having shot a wedding myself it is a lot of work to put the photos together especially in a book to tell the story of the day so you want to be able to concentrate on just that without battling with software.
I am not sure what formats these companies will accept the books in, as I understood it the blurb process rendered the document as PDF and uploaded it so I am not sure with all these companies whether you have to use the software they supply or whether there are alternative methods.
Before you make your final decisions it maybe worth trying the software they supply.
