Colours for a Heart Wedding Theme

Colours play a big part in setting the scene to any big day, and when it comes to a heart wedding theme there are two colours which stand head and shoulders above the rest - red and pink. Epitomising love and romance, reds and pinks will not only help to add a warm feel to the proceedings as a whole, but will also work perfectly well with ivory's, cream's and gold's to create a wonderfully romantic feel to the whole affair.



Stationery for a Heart Wedding Theme

Traditional wedding stationery is a good bet, or for something a little different, opt for heart shaped stationery across the day. To help emphasise your heart wedding theme, look to adorn your invites, orders of service and more with symbols of love and romance throughout - cupid, hearts etc. Condsider including a small love poem, quote or romantic verse on each item of stationery and, for those wordsmith's among you, why not write your own!



Transport for a Heart Wedding Theme

You will struggle to come up with a more romantic form of wedding transport than the Horse and carriage. Characterising love, these vehicles are perfect for short journeys and even better with the top down!


For longer road trips, any form of red or pink vehicle will work well - red Ferrari's and pink Cadillac's to name just a few. For something a little more daring, how about a stretched VW Beetle - after all, it is the original 'Love Bug'!



Outfits for a Heart Wedding Theme

A traditional wedding dress is one way forward - ivory or white in colour and adorned with red crystals or embroidery. For any Bride who dares to be different, a deep red down with accompanying white stole, a black gown with deep red stitching or a pink A-line wedding frock are just some of the options. Whatever you choose, look to put the Bridesmaids is suitably matching outfits.


For the Groom, a formal black tailcoat is a good option, or why not opt for a white tux instead. Finishing either option off with traditional cufflinks and accessories and opt for contrasing, yet complementary outfits for the Groomsmen.



Flowers for a Heart Wedding Theme

Think flowers and romance and chances are that one flower towers above all others - the rose. Form the Bride's bouquet to table centrepieces, incorporate red roses wherever possible, and affordable! Where money is a little tight, red or pink carnations make a wonderul cheaper alternative, yet still carry with them sufficient character to co-ordinate well with your heart wedding theme.



Venue for a Heart Wedding Theme
A large stately manor house is the perfect venue, though barns, and castles are equally as romantic. Pay close attention to the interior of any venue and if in any doubt opt for a marquee then accessorise it yourselves.



Food & Drink for a Heart Wedding Theme

Food and drink offers a couple a perfect way to incorporate any theme effortlessly into the proccedings. With this in mind, why not consider the following food and drink options for your heart wedding theme.

Welcome Drink: Pink champagne or pink lemonade for the kids

Reception Starter: Oysters with an avocado mousse.

Reception Main Course: Medallions of pork served with asparagus.
Reception Desert: Heart shaped chocolate mousse with a raspberry coulis.
’Evening Do’ Food: Canapes and petite finger food.

The Wedding Cake: A heart shaped multi-tiered cake decorated in white, pink or red icing adorned with red roses or personalised love hearts.



Decorations & Favours for a Heart Wedding Theme

There are so many romantic options available it's hard to list them all. Whilst something elaborate like an ice sculpture in the shape of cupid is one option, there are plenty of cheaper alternatives. Heart shaped red balloons, tea lights, candles, red, pink and white streamers, and balloon arches are just some of the choices available. With regards favours for a heart wedding theme, personalised Love Hearts or heart shaped chocolate dragees in red and white boxes tied with contrasting ribbon are a popular option. Sticks of rock with the name of the Bride an Groom running through them add a cute romantic touch.



Music & Entertainment for a Heart Wedding Theme
A fireworks display set to a piece of romantic music provides a lovely end to the day, whilst Chinese sky lanterns (upon which each guest would write a good luck message to the couple before releasing them into the night sky) are a quirky, yet great idea. A s
wing band playing music from the likes of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jnr provides a great musical backdrop to any romantic wedding.
