‘Tis the season for candy hearts, red roses, and love-love-LOVE! We are absolutely falling for this Valentine’s Day theme wedding our happy chose for...
The most romantic day of the year is only fitting for a commitment of life-long love and dedication between two people. But if you want to avoid going overboard with a theme wedding, we totally get you. A Valentine's Day wedding can absolutely be subtle - in the most beautiful way. Refer to these 10 simple ways to incorporate all your favorite parts of this romantic holiday into your weddings.
Valentine's Day is all about celebrating love. And your guests will love getting to know your love story better. Consider incorporating the story of how you met, your first date, and the proposal into your wedding day details.
Valentine's Day screams red and pink colors. And while that may look nice in the candy aisle at the store, it can definitely be a little much for an elegant wedding. Instead, consider having a mostly neutral palette with small pops of blush and maroon. Use colors like ivory, white, champagne, or dusty gray as your key colors and add touches of pinks and reds with the florals, bridesmaid dresses, cake, mismatching goblets, etc. We also consider using other hues of pink and red than what you see on Valentine's Day candy - try blush, dusty mauve, and burgundy instead.
Your wedding day will be filled with romance. Let your guests get cozy and feel the love too! You could set up a corner with plush seating, throw pillows, and a blanket for guests to lounge in during cocktail hour. Or consider offering blankets and hot chocolate to guests at your ceremony! And if your venue has a fireplace, that makes it all the merrier.
Roses are red, violets are blue; we love lavish flowers - don't you? Gorgeous flowers already play the star on Valentine's Day, so it only makes sense to go big with the floral decor at your Valentine's Day wedding. We're talking cascading bouquets, lush arch florals, lavish aisle decor, and over-extended table runners of greenery! Ask your florist for suggestions bases on style and color. Roses are an obvious choice. Damask roses add a touch of delicacy and King Protea add a unique pop of pink. For a rich contrast, mix in burgundy astilbe, deep red calla lilies, dahlias, ranunculus or anemones into the bouquets and centerpieces.
Set the mood with romantic lighting. Consider the glow of hanging bistro lights above you - a popular choice among our couples! And, of course, nothing says romance like candlelit dinner. Consider displaying an exuberant number of candles throughout your reception space: on the tables, on the floor accenting your sweetheart table, on the mantle (if there is one). Anywhere you can put a candle, put ten.
A subtle yet meaningful way to play into a Valentine's-theme wedding is sticking to a playlist full of love songs. Start with your favorites, then look up other popular love songs to add. And always ask your DJ for suggestions - that's what they're there for!
It’s Valentine's Day, so there's got to be candy! Consider setting up a candy bar filled with pink and red goodies. Set out plastic bags for take-home use and you've got yourself a wedding element that's both a sweat treat and a wedding favor for your guests.
A Valentine's Day wedding doesn't have to be as cheesy as the 6-foot stuffed bear at the store. Stick to these inspiration ideas and you'll have everyone feeling the love at your classy and chic wedding!
