A single heart shape is probably the oldest and most recognizable symbol of love and when used as a detail in your wedding theme can create a sweet whimsical touch. The trick here is not to over do it so you keep the look stylish. I like the idea of a using a single heart symbol in a simplistic way. You can introduce it with your save-the-dates, feature it in your ceremony and reception decor or add an element of surprise to your bridal style. Here is a collection of heart themed wedding ideas for your inspiration. You can also find these plus many more on our heart themed wedding ideas Pinterest board. Enjoy!
A simple heart on white or block coloured card is a always a great combo.
Make a statement and include a heart shape in your bridal style. This wedding gown with a cut-out heart shaped back is sexy and dramatic. Subtle details like these cute red heart shoe stickers add a touch of whimsical style.
A red heart against clean white fondant background makes a striking graphic detail on a modern wedding cake.
Stylish details in the shape of heart add a charming touch to a place setting or tablescape. This heart-shaped place card in simple burlap speaks understated elegance. A votive candle wrapped in a doily with a heart-shaped print cut out and red and white twine makes a perfectly pretty luminary.

Introduce hearts into your ceremony and reception decor. A heart shape marries perfectly with whimsical paper decorations and balloons. Bright red or pink hearts add a pop of colour to a neutral toned rustic or country theme and an interesting or unexpected decor detail (like this vintage heart chair) can become a styling highlight when used in a shabby chic or vintage wedding theme.
Spoil your guest with heart-themed favours that appeal to the sweet tooth or the hopeless romantic.
A gorgeous idea is to incorporate your heart theme into your wedding pictures. Symbolize a romantic moment with a heart shaped prop or balloon. You can even achieve a fantastic arty style image like this photographer who featured the splash of a red balloon against a black and white background – this is one picture you’ll want to frame and hang on the wall.
Sometimes it’s the simplest and smallest of details that make the greatest impact. Just like this heart shape sewn into the back of a bride’s gown for a sweet heart-felt touch or this hand-drawn chalkboard heart welcoming guests as they arrive.
Put some vintage style into your wedding with heart-themed vintage pieces. Add a touch of nostalgia with a heart detail inside a vintage locket, surprise your groom with heart-themed lingerie or a simple heart hair pin could be all you need for a sweet retro touch.
