Hearts may be the obvious choice to portray love and passion, but are seldom actually used in the décor or attire of a formal wedding. But what better way could there be to represent what your wedding day is all about than to splash a liberal dose of hearts throughout? This will also remind your guests what your day is all about and keep the love alive.

Here are just some of our ideas for your heart-themed wedding:

  • Have big and small hearts made out of felt and satin, gingham, or hessian; stuffed or embroidered and use these as adorable photograph props. If you have chosen a photo booth as an extra feature for your big day, make these fun props available for your guests.
  • Use wooden hearts painted with blackboard paint as place name settings for each guest. This may double as your cute guest favours.
  • Sew hearts onto your wedding gown and / or bridesmaids’ dresses in pale pastels for a pretty look or vibrant colours for a more fun approach. These can be major design features, or can be subtle (think of a cute feature heart on the hem or back, for example).
  • Hang twig hearts around your venue or use them as rustic table centrepieces.
  • Create a stylised heart as a ‘logo’ for you, as a couple, and your wedding. Use this on all of your wedding stationery; including invitations, programmes, and ‘thank you’ notes.
  • Hang little card hearts from a twig arrangement to look like leaves on a tree. Ask your guests to each take a card and write a personal message on it. Then they should hang it back on the tree for you to enjoy when you have a quiet moment together.
  • Ask your florist to create heart shapes out of flowers and greenery, and use these around your dance floor, along your aisle or on your tables.

There are SO many ideas and different ways to use hearts in your wedding. We have put a few photos together, but for even more ideas, make check our out Pinterest board for more heart wedding ideas.
