If you're planning your summer or fall nuptials and are brainstorming potential décor ideas, there's nothing easier or simpler to execute than the classic theme of "Romance." Your wedding day is already a celebration of love... why not amplify it and share the romantic vibes with your guests?

Check out the categories below to help you build your vision on the most romantic day of your life. We hope you love them as much as we do!

1. Attire

The bride is the centerpiece of a wedding reception (oh, and the groom, of course!), so radiate romance during the Big Day with your bridal gown. Instead of picking a polar or ice-white dress, consider choosing a more beige or off-white design. The combination of tulle, lace and beige will create the perfect trifecta for a romantic beginning. Don't forget to pair your look with a darker, or even red, lip!

2. Mood

Setting the mood for "romance" begins with your color scheme. Red is the timeless color of love, but you can spice it up a little by looking through the spectrum and sticking to bordeaux or berry reds. When thinking about deeper colors, don't be afraid to think outside of the box a little bit. Imagine how beautiful a deep red would pair with a peach, light pink, green or event white. This way, you can visually invite your guests to feel the romance!

3. Lighting

The easy and chic way to "dim" the lights is with candles. Hundreds and hundreds of candles! You can go the LED route, our even incorporate pillar, taper or tea candles in every corner of your hall. This way, the natural and romantic lighting in your reception area will get your guests—and you—in the mood for love.

4. Cuisine

Make your reception delectable with a perennial favorite—chocolate! Whether it comes in fondue or bite-sized form, give your guests a taste of love that evening. Take it one step further and incorporate chocolate into your wedding cake (nothing says love like chocolate ganache!) so everyone can savor the flavor of romance.

5. Transportation

Instead of thinking BIG with a traditional limousine, you and your sweetheart can arrive in class with an old-school buggy, vintage car or Classic Limo. The ride will also serve as an über-romantic prop for your wedding photos, too!
