My birthday is a few days away and this year, I’m getting inked — relax, it’s only temporary. I love those sweet little tattoos you see popping up everywhere: you know the kind, the tiny black heart, infinity symbol, ampersand, ‘love’ — but I’m way too scared to ink it for real. Ouch, you guys, and talk about commitment. That is forever-ever. Marriage is forever, too, but when you’ve found the right person (I have!), marriage forever = the best thing ever. Tattoos, not so much, if you’re like me anyway. For instance, I said to Andrew, “If I got a heart tattoo, I’d put it right here“, showing him the underside of my wrist. So, for a week, I used black marker and drew on the cutest little black heart. It took, eh, maybe three days until I was all, “GET THIS OFF OF ME” so at least I know temporary tattoos are more my style. When I did a little investigative research into cute, non-kid-like temporary tattoos, I was very impressed, even more so at the temporary wedding tattoos I found, which I’m super excited to share with you today. So, if you’re planning to freak out your parents just a little bit with a freshly-inked (temp) tattoo pre-wedding (don’t do that), want to do a trial run to see how you’ll probably get tired of the same design when you’re ninety-five (or not, which is cool, too), or paint the town red with your gal pals and matching tats (even just for the night), you’ll want to get inked with these beautiful temporary wedding tattoos. Check ‘em out!
So, lovelies… which of these temporary wedding tattoos is your fave? Does it make you want to get inked, if even just for the day? I want ALL OF THESE. I’d have to say that #1 is still my favorite, though. Share yours below!

There are so many amazing wedding themes out there (speaking of, have you seen this yet?) but heart wedding ideas are often overlooked. Maybe it’s because some of the heart decor you see out there is overly Valentine-y, or maybe it’s because you didn’t know just how gorgeous modern heart decor can be. Whatever the reason, today we’re inspiring you to get creative with your heart-adoring self and steal these twenty-one heart themed wedding ideas. Read on for more… plus, you could win won of these heart themed wedding ideas from Harvest Gold Gallery, Giveaway #19 in our 31 Giveaways Series! Enjoy!
Heart Themed Wedding Ideas
1. Heart Wedding Chair Decor
Up first, take a look at these adorable heart chair backs! Oh, and I may or may not be partial to this as the first selection because of the huge E & A (you know, me + hubby) on the back wall. Where was this for my own wedding?
2. Metallic heart pillows at your sweetheart table.
Up next, let’s incorporate some cute, modern, totally-comfy metallic heart pillows into the mix. How do they fit, you ask? On your chairs at the sweetheart table, of course! It’s another way to identify your chairs as ‘reserved’ and will make for a comfortable dining experience.
This unique concept — the “drop top guest book” — is one of favorite heart wedding ideas! Guests write their names on wood hearts and drop them into this guest book display. Looks like fun for guests to do, too. Does this remind anyone of Plinko?
This heart is hidden as a carving on birch bark and can be used as rustic aisle decor. Add a mason jar chock full of baby’s breath and a votive candle and you have an entirely easy diy decoration that looks amazing.
Last but not least, you didn’t think I’d forget something cake-related, did you? These cake pops are one of my newest crushes. Yes, cake pops have been around for awhile now on the trending board but seriously, how cute are these with the pops of hearts?
Now that you’re well-versed in amazing heart wedding ideas, it’s time to win one! We’ve teamed up with Lynda from Harvest Gold Jewelry to give away one 14k gold bouquet charm (a $75 value!) in the winner’s choice of color, as shown below. Get the full details!
