How to Have a Heart Themed Wedding

Like the classic red theme, hearts instantly symbolize love, so they make perfect sense to include in your wedding. But how can you add hearts to your big day without it looking like the Valentine’s Day aisle in the grocery store?  

Answer: Try using a color other than bright red, and using sparingly.

Read on for ways to add hearts to your wedding.

Boutonniere – Ruffled Blog shows a stylish boutonniere fashioned into a heart shape. The small flowers keep the heart simple and small. 

Paper heart decoration – This heart is much larger, but the white color keeps it from taking over the walls of a barn. In addition, both the heart and garland are made from white paper, creating a cohesive look.

Lace Heart Unity Candle – Here’s a unity candle with matching tapers with a heart motif. However, the black lace motif keeps the heart looking fancy rather than cutesy.

Heart Shaped Bird Food Favor – This birdseed favor is both sweet and functional. The DIY project is made using a heart shaped cookie cutter. The birdseed favor works well in garden themed and outdoor weddings.

Hearts are a great way to express love for your fiancĂ©, family and friends on your wedding day, but you don’t want to go overboard. Keeping away from bright red and using hearts in small doses will allow you to add the recognized symbol of love into your wedding.

How would you use hearts in your wedding?
