2. Infuse Your Palette with Passionate Colors
Any shade of red or pink is the go-to color scheme for a Valentine’s day wedding. Go bold with dark reds like mahogany and scarlet, or delicate with soft pink and blush hues.
3. Carry a Captivating Arrangement
Even though roses for Valentine’s Day are a staple, don’t be afraid to try other blooms for your bouquet. Carrying orchids and carnations can be just as picturesque.
4. Delight in Chocolate
Chocolates are a given for this day, so let guests indulge in a dense chocolate wedding cake. A red velvet cake with rich frosting and red berry sauce is sure to leave your guests glad they sinned on their diet.
5. Sport a Princess Gown
Bubblegum pink might not be your bridal gown color of choice, but there are so many other shades that make great alternatives to the traditional white. My Wed Style recommends wearing tinges of dusty rose or pale blush to make your dress pop even more.
6. Rock with an Ombre Veil
If sticking to white seems like a better choice, yet you still crave a bit of Valentine’s color, consider adding a touch of dewy pink to your veil. An ombre effect will do the trick and add that dash of romanticism you’ve been looking for.
7. Jazz Up Your Table Settings
Incorporate elegant details into your table settings such as delicate china and silverware. Sprinkle rose petals and pine sprigs for a scented, candlelit meal.
8. Serve Sparkling Cocktails
Make a subtle nod to this love-filled holiday by creating a Valentine’s day themed signature drink. Don’t know where to start? Think pink and fizzy – like raspberry champagne or strawberry mojitos.
9. Offer Valentine’s Candy
DUO Venues recommends handing out boxes of heart shaped candy to your guests for a genuine Valentine’s Day gesture. Personalize each box for a charming – not to mention budget friendly – wedding favor idea.
10. Dress Your Venue
Make cupid swoon by decorating your space with rose garlands. Allow the aroma of the blooms to fill every corner of your reception.
11. Make Your Backdrop Sparkle
For an easy yet gorgeous wedding vow backdrop, hang light strings against a simple wall. Adding florets to the strings will make for a cute, whimsical aesthetic.
12. Include Romantic Decor
Set the tone for a romantic affair by placing candles and colored petals along your wedding aisle. The glimmering light will make you look stunning as you walk down to say your vows.
13. Keep Memories For Years To Come
Immortalize the memories of your nuptials by letting guests sign a fairy-tale inspired guest book. After all, your love story is one for the books.
14. Incorporate a Romantic Kissing Booth
Play matchmaker at your own wedding and watch as couples fall in love in a DIY kissing booth. Break the ice by giving it a try as newlyweds and inviting other guest couples as well. Who knows? Maybe that’ll be the start of some new love stories.
