Valentine’s day is the most romantic holiday of the year. It is an important day of the year when couples devote their time to showering each other with sweet words, delectable dinners, chocolates and flowers. It is the holiday of love.
Valentine’s Day can be a bit over commercialized, most true romantics don’t let that bother them. It is a day for couples to reflect on their relationship and remember why they fell in love. This makes Valentine’s Day the PERFECT day for a wedding.
I’ve thought of a few different options and ideas for a Valentine’s Day wedding and listed them below. Let me know what you think in the comments after you sift through!
If you decide to have your wedding on Valentine’s day odds are your colors will more than likely include some shade of red. Naturally, it is everyone’s first inclination to pick red for a Valentine’s day wedding, but why not try something different and out of the norm? What about purples and pinks? Or even light peach, pink, and cream colors for a delicate and softer look? One popular item trending this year for weddings is lace. Consider pairing lace with these light pink and cream colors for that extra fancy feel. Lace is a great detail to use not only because of how pretty it looks as decor, but also because there are so many different types of lace and you can buy it in large amounts for a really good price! Here’s a good site to check out for some lace by the yard.
Valentine’s day is a fairly easy theme to use for a wedding because there are many options one can choose from. You could decide to go really over the top “Valentine’s Themed” by making everything red; using red hearts everywhere from confetti on the tables, to heart balloons all over your venue, down to having roses and rose petals all over the place. You could also go with the more delicate look I just mentioned; choosing a light pink and cream as your colors, decorating with lace, using crystal glasses and flatware or even crystal centerpieces. And don’t forget those adorable little cherubs. You can definitely find some Valentine’s decorations at your nearest party supply store or even online at amazon for reasonable prices. (Maybe even cheaper than some of the wedding supply websites.)
To stick with a more romantic theme, consider adorning the tables of your reception hall with small boxes of truffles for your guests to take home as gifts. If truffles are too expensive, you could get one box for the whole table to enjoy. Sweetheart candy boxes would make a fun and fairly cheap gift to leave out for your guests. You could personalize these by addressing them to each guest and by including you and your husband’s name and the date of the wedding. And, if you decide to assign seats for the reception, why not use the sweetheart candy boxes as a fun way for people to identify their assigned seats?!
As for your wedding cake, I suggest red velvet! Especially if you are going with the mainly red theme. It looks both beautiful and tastes delicious. And if you really want to follow your color themes to the t, go with some rose for your champagne toast.
I think we all know where I’m going with this one. Of course I am going to suggest roses; the ultimate romance flowers. If you are sticking with the romantic theme, having long stem red roses at your wedding could be key. But if you want something a little different why not try carnations? You can dye them just about any color you want and they are definitely a little easier on the wallet than roses. But if you do decide on roses and a romantic theme, cascading flowers are another popular trend right now, and would look extremely elegant.
