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!

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.
