# 1 – Choosing the right background. Romantic or whimsical.
Choosing the perfect background will help set the tone for your layout. For romantic pages of your wedding or engagement scrapbook, use a dark shade a red, a scrapbook sheet showing wedding rings, or a one with love birds on it. To add humour to a page, find a design with "XOXOXO" or kissing lips. Large craft stores, as well as scrapbook websites, carry a wide variety of wedding themed sheets. Some sites offer customized options as well! For example, you can purchase a design that has two hearts drawn in the sand with the beautiful ocean in the background. Inside of each heart you and your partner's name will appear. You can also use wedding gift wrap paper for a background.
