Incorporating hearts into your wedding decor can be tricky business. Going too overboard can cause your wedding to look like a second-grade classroom adorned for Valentine’s Day. But a few carefully chosen hearts can add just the right amount of sweet and whimsy to your celebration. Check out some of our favorite heart-shaped ideas for your wedding decor.

Bouquet: If you’re feeling bold, a bouquet made entirely of hearts and feathers packs a contemporary punch.

Programs: The red-and-pink ombre chevron pattern elevates these heart-shaped ceremony programs into true works of art.

Mirror: A vintage-inspired frame with a cheeky heart drawing serves as a fun backdrop for an escort card or dessert table.

Topiary: We love the contrast of the heart’s femininity and the natural, almost edgy-looking, moss. Hang from the ceiling or on the doors to your ceremony venue.

Dress: Mix sexy and sweet with this Hayley Paige gown, featuring a heart-shaped cutout in back.

Real Wedding: Valentine’s Day

Posted by acursaro on Feb 12, 2010

Last year, I (along with the rest of the baci team) had the pleasure of designing a gorgeous Valentine’s Day wedding for high school sweethearts, Casey and Josh.  Everything went so smoothly and the couple could not have been happier (they had originally intended to elope to avoid the wedding planning hassle, but after speaking with baci changed their minds)!!  An extra-added bonus for this holiday fête – the entire event was planned in only eight weeks with a budget of $1,000!!!

Valentine’s Day Inspired Wedding Bouquets

Posted by tkau on Feb 11, 2010

Even if you don’t plan to hold your wedding on Valentine’s Day weekend, you can still have beautiful, romantic bouquets in multiple shades of pink and red. Accent with deep purple or peach for something a little different. Adding ostrich feathers makes a dramatic and glamorous statement. And little sparkling rhinestones glued onto roses and calla lilies or just placed between the flowers add a little bling bling edge.
