Get heart shaped grapevines wreaths to use instead of carrying normal
bouquets for the bride's maids. They can be covered with flowers and
greenery or just do the tops with a rose or two and a spray of ivy and
ribbon loop handle. This would also be an effective pew decoration. This
could also be done in dry or silk and kept as a keepsake.
Looking to dress up your ceremony or reception site? Designed with
hydrangea petals accented with clusters of beads, these heart-shaped
wreaths add warmth and charm to any location. Great for doors, walls, pews,
or even the tail of your getaway car.
Get a heart mold for the ice in the punch and freeze it with organic flowers
or candy hearts in it. White flowers don't look good frozen or dried. They
tend to look brown. Heart sandwich cookies filled with red or pink jelly or
cream would make nice favors. Or a cookie with no cut out and write names on
them in icing for place settings.
Get or make a large wire frame heart or two large ones intertwined and cover
with white Christmas lights. Hang as a great focal point.
Get a large Foam core board and cut out "grade school" looking hearts out of
construction paper and paste them to the board. You can put photos of the
couple together and growing up in each one or leave some blank for the
guests to sign.
Cut out homemade hearts out of colored paper after you print on it with your
computer for wedding invitations, programs or menus. I believe around
valentine's day you can find heart shaped paper napkins.
Make a heart shaped cone to put your rice or rose petals or wedding favors
in. Get paper cone favors and notch the top to look like a heart.
Adorn each table with interlocking heart centerpieces and accent them with
table decorations, you and your guests will treasure these for ever!
Get a great heart stamp or two at the art store and you can stamp all kinds
of things such as napkins, your invitation envelopes, the photo poster
board, the paper cones, place cards, paper table cloths.
I have seen a heart shaped rose petals in a magazine but I do not know how
easy they would be to find.
Get a heart shaped hole punch and make confetti for tossing or decoration.
If you can't find a pretty
heart shaped cake topper, you could get the bakery to make two cream
puff that can face each other on top of the cake and "make" a heart. (like
the Swan stamp at the post office right now.)
Get or make a
heart shaped guest book.
Have the Ring Bearer carry a
heart shaped ring pillow
