Not just reserved for Valentine's Day, hugs and kisses — XOXO! — are also a sweet sentiment to express on your wedding day. Here are some of our favorite XOXO-themed ways to spread the love.

Balloons (above): Get creative with your wedding portraits shoot by adding a few whimsical props, like these oversize mylar balloons.

Marquee Letters: Greet guests as they arrive to the ceremony by displaying a set of vintage-style marquee letters at the entrance.

Oversized Letters: Or, you could set up a pair of giant XO letters at the reception entrance to help direct guests to the celebration.

Chair Decorations: Make your seats at the reception stand out by hanging a pair of XOs studded with fresh flowers.

Macaron Cookies: Have guests help themselves to a dessert buffet featuring French macarons decorated with edible-gold Xs and Os.

Cake Toppers: Dress up a simply frosted cake with gold alphabet toppers from Lisa Leonard.
