Here at Wedding Ideas HQ, we love a bit of romance so here’s part 2 of fabulous feature on how to add a romantic touch to your day!
Rose petals are beautifully romantic. Get your flowergirl to scatter them down the aisle in front of you as you walk, and use them as throwing confetti after the ceremony. This will make for fabulous photos, too.
The colour of love
Perhaps an obvious choice, but a red colour scheme is a great way to add a little romance to your day and tie all your details together. Deep red bridesmaid dresses will look fab in autumn and winter, while a brighter shade would work well in warmer months.
Your venue can really set the tone of your day, so think carefully before booking. A castle venue is the perfect backdrop for your fairytale ending. If you can’t find a castle within budget, look for romantic gardens or venues with lakes – all great spots for photo opportunities.
Create that Valentine’s vibe at any time of year by using cherubs as a symbol on your stationery and other details.
The current trend for all things vintage lends itself nicely to adding romance to your day. Ruffles, lace, feathers and embellishments, all give your stationery and other details a soft and romantic feel. See Lovely Favours for instant inspiration.
Letters of love
Start the day by letting your h2b know just how much you love him. Give your best man a present and a love letter to hand to him on the morning of the wedding as they’re getting ready. Thoughtful touches like this will make the day even more special.
Many brides and grooms are breaking with tradition when it comes to the wedding cake. Our top tip? Spread a little love by having individual cupcakes decorated with hearts, roses, and cherubs and personally hand them out to your guests as favours.
Complete your aisle style with some must-have heels. Our favourites for creating a romantic look are Vivienne Westwood’s ‘Lady Dragon’ peep toes, complete with heart details. Just gorgeous!
Love is all around
Spell out your love for one another with wooden letters dotted around your venue or on your top table. From ‘Love’ to ‘Mr and Mrs’ it’s easy to symbolise your marriage.
Say it with flowers
Finally, have a bridesmaid or wedding co-ordinator take some flowers and Champagne to your room during the evening reception. When the the celebrations are over, you and your new husband will be able finish your day in romantic style.
