The most romantic day of the year is coming, and for some, they are going to make it more than just a romantic evening with their partner. Some will say their vows and begin the next chapter of their happily ever after on February 14, and we could not be happier for those couples. If you are planning a Valentine's Day wedding, we've pulled some ideas and themes to help you with the planning process. Valentine's wedding ideas follow the standard color schemes, so if you love pink or red, and the day of love, this may be the perfect option for you.
Valentine's wedding ideas can be as simple or as extravagant as you want.
- Put your bridesmaids in red or pink.We know, red is usually a taboo color at weddings, but not on Valentine's Day, and not when they're in your bridal party.
- Use traditional Valentine's Day flowers in your wedding bouquet. Garden roses, peonies, anemones, and Queen Anne's lace looks beautiful together, and very festive for the occasion.
- Create a specialty cocktail with a perfectly sweet title and color. This is your time to have pink and red drinks everywhere. Develop a signature cocktail that's given a romantic name, and enjoy with your friends and family.
- Mix pink, gold, and burgundy for a beautiful, cozy color scheme that screams romance. Your guests won't be able to resist the beautiful lure of cozy faux fur blankets on a couch, especially with a bit of a nip to the air.
- Give your guests an arrow with their seat number. This is a beautiful way to pay homage to Cupid, and give them a cute little take-home gift that matches the theme perfectly.
- A box of chocolate covered strawberries is a romantic take-home for your guests to enjoy later that evening after all the festivities.
- Make a runway of rose petals for a majestic walk down the aisle.
- Heart confetti can be a colorful and beautiful way for you to end the evening. Give your guests a little heart shaped baggie filled with cut out hearts for them to shower on the happy couple as you make your exit.
- Create X's and O's for your tables. With a mix of rectangle and circle tables, you can seat more people, and have a beautiful arrangement filled with hugs and kisses.
- For the groom and his groomsmen, a heart shaped boutonniere is a great option. It's not quite wearing his heart on his sleeve, but close enough.
- Use different seating. Instead of traditional chairs, offer your guests vintage seats and tufted sofas to sit on for an eclectic mix.
- Put a heart shaped wreath on the door of the reception. It'll make finding the right room easier on your guests, and be a nice touch that you can use on your door the next day when you begin your life as a newlywed.
Making these Valentine's wedding ideas come to life is easier than you'd think. Simply pick a few that go together, and bring your fairytale to life.
