Romantic wedding ideas

There are so many fabulous romantic ideas that you can bring into your wedding and, when the day is all about love, we think you should definitely include a few romantic touches. Whether you choose to go for grand gestures or smaller details, it’s time to up the romance levels…

Display photos from past family weddings. These displays always get lots of attention from guests and it’s lovely to share romantic stories on such an important day. On a fine day, set up your display in our gardens as a great centrepiece during your drinks reception.

Get your guests in the mood from the moment they arrive. A super romantic quote handwritten in a frame or on a mirror is the perfect welcome to your wedding.

Remember that romance doesn’t stop when you’re married! Ask guests to contribute their best date ideas for you. This is also a great idea as you’ll have lots to look forward to after the wedding.

Show your guests some love and let them know that you’re both so happy that they’re there to share the day with you. This sign is a wonderful touch for your wedding ceremony.

This giant heart-shaped print is a brilliant alternative to the traditional guest book. Enlarge your thumbprints and ask guests to sign their names – simple and rather romantic!

Tumbling tresses and pretty fresh flowers are the perfect combination for romantic brides. This is a great look for summer weddings.

Speak to your photographer to make sure that you have time for some crazily romantic couple’s photos during ‘golden hour’. These are the wedding portraits that will always make your heart beat a little faster.

Sometimes the simple things are the best and this elegant cake topper is just that. Add a topper and lots of romantic blooms to your cake for a show-stopper that’s all about romance.

There’s something very special about fresh flowers so add a freshly cut bloom to each place setting for a romantic touch.

Write a love letter to your partner for them to read on the morning of the wedding. There’s absolutely nothing quite like a handwritten letter and when it’s so full of love, it’s sure to be the best letter they’ve ever received.

Romantic wedding décor for a barn wedding

When you think about romantic wedding décor, you probably think of pink and pastel colour themes but really, you can create a romantic look with any colour. Romance isn’t just in colours, it’s in the styles you use and the elements that you include. Remember that your idea of romance could well be very different to someone else’s and that’s absolutely fine – include the romantic details that work for you so that your wedding is authentic and unique to you. Here are some ideas that you might like to consider for your barn wedding:

Giant balloons are perfect props for wedding photos and they also make great decorations for barn weddings. They can be moved around the venue too so can decorate your marriage ceremony and your wedding reception.

Wicker hearts are a fabulous finishing touch for the chairs that line the aisle during your wedding ceremony. Add a flower or sprig of gypsophila for a little extra beauty.

This tablescape has it all – cute details, heart shaped confetti, scrabble letters and touches that really reflect the bride and groom. Add faux candles for that all important glow.

Share you own love story by creating personalised table numbers. The number of dates before your first kiss, the number of months before you got engaged, even the number of Valentine’s Day cards that you’ve sent each other could all inspire your table numbers.

Light up letters always look amazing and when they’re bring some sparkle to your dessert table, what’s not to love? We love the rustic style here and this would be a great wedding DIY.

Remember that you can set the scene for your romantic wedding well before the big day arrive. Send out beautifully designed invitations to your guests to give them a hint of what’s to come. We love wax seals as they really show that this envelope contains something very special indeed.
