Choose Your Colors
While it may seem easy to choose colors for a Valentine’s Day wedding, it’s also easy to go a little overboard. Whether you choose to go the traditional route of reds and pinks, or even purples, we recommend keeping your color scheme around 2-3 colors. Once you’ve chosen your favorites, add in a little pop of sparkle with gold or silver accents throughout. Coordinate your colors with details such as centerpieces, flowers, gift bags – even the food! You can also incorporate them into your bridal bouquet like the photo above by Yonder House Floral.
Dress to Impress
A wedding on Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to try new things and put aside tradition if you’re willing! With so many fun colors associated with the holiday, why not incorporate them into your wedding attire as well? Blush pink wedding dresses are an easy and elegant way to get creative on your big day, as seen in the gown above from Leanne Marshall. Whether it’s a long flowing gown or a simple lace bodice, there’s a variety of ways to add a pop of pink to your wedding dress. If you don’t want to fully commit to a colored dress, try adding a colored accent instead such as a pink bow or pink lace overlay.
Coordinate Your Sweets
One of the staples of a great wedding is a great wedding cake. Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to take this a step further by adding in some extra sweets. From heart-shaped cakes and macarons to colored cupcakes and cake pops, your dessert tray will be both visually appealing and delicious! We recommend throwing in some traditional shades of red and pink to keep with your Valentine’s Day wedding theme as well. Don’t be afraid to add some extra hearts and sparkle to your treats too, like this cake from The Sugared Saffron.
Use Natural Light
Since Valentine’s Day is already such a romantic day, your wedding should be the same! Natural lighting is one of the easiest ways to create a more warm, romantic feeling – no matter how large your venue. One of our favorite ways to add more natural lighting is using candles. From adding them to centerpieces or even lining the aisles, add a candle to any place you need extra lighting. String lights are a great alternative if your venue is larger and you don’t want to worry about so many candles. The dim light is also the most flattering so your photographer will thank you later! Be sure to check with your wedding venue ahead of time to ensure candles are allowed, especially if you plan on using several throughout.
