3 Classic Designs for Wonderful Wedding Layouts

While it's fun to incorporate current trends in our layouts, there's something alluring about the idea of creating wedding layouts that will still be considered lovely and well-designed in 20 years.

Take a look at the following three layouts: each one focuses on an element of classic design-from color schemes to typography to structure-giving you ways to scrapbook wedding layouts with timeless appeal.

Decide on your visual hierarchy to establish the focus of your layout. As you look at your layout, determine the order of importance of the elements on your layout. For a classic look, the most important element on a layout is the photos, followed by the page title, the journaling, and then the embellishments.

Create strong lines. Use patterned paper to create lines that guide the viewer's eye through your layout design. Notice how the vertical line of the patterned paper on the left page of Mandy's layout directs your eye from the focal point photo to the page title and down to the journaling. The journaling block joins the patterned paper strip on the right-hand page and continues to direct your eye to the right, through the photos, to the date, ending at the flower accent.
