Thinking about planning a wedding on one of the most lovey-dovey days of the year? You must be a true romantic! You do not have to go all reds and pinks – there are so many options that will look great on your day. You could go vintage, rustic, or classy. Use blush pinks, neutrals or even an entirely white wedding. Any of these options would look great for a Valentine’s Day wedding! Let’s take a look at some ways you can do this without going over the top in hearts.
Incorporate Hearts in a Subtle Way
Yes, hearts are a big part of Valentine’s Day decor but if you go overboard it can start looking tacky instead of romantic! Try giving out heart-shaped corkscrews as favors to your guests or offer small heart cookies as a dessert. Hearts are best incorporated in small, understated ways instead of going for a full heart-themed wedding.
Play up the Romance
This means lovely blush tones and roses. Romantic shades of light pinks combined with warm lighting will give your wedding that Valentine’s Day glow. Roses are classically romantic and can be used in nearly every aspect of the wedding. Use rose petals in the aisle, roses as centerpieces, and even add some sugary roses to your cake! Lace can also be used to add texture and romance to your day. Lace can be used in the invitations, table cloths, and your dress! Do not forget about your lighting. Use candles to light up your venue or string lights in a canopy fashion. This use of lighting will give your reception an intimate feel.
Make sure to book your venue early! Valentine’s Day is an incredibly popular day to have weddings. Try looking for a venue with a garden view or even indoor gardens.
Guys – wanting to propose to your love on Valentine’s Day? Make sure to keep it simple and romantic. Be personal and go to your first date location, eat her favorite dessert, and remember what made you first fall in love.
