By Jamie Miles for TheKnot.com

It's a given that there will be plenty of ring photos in your wedding album -- particularly when you're exchanging rings at the ceremony. But if you want a clean backdrop to showcase your newlywed bands and your dreamy engagement ring, consider playful props like piano keys, flower petals, cupcakes or even golf balls to add some personality to your ring shot. Your photographer can help you stage a creative backdrop tying into your wedding theme, or you can borrow some ideas from these couples for out-of-the-box ways to display your ring.
