A Valentine’s Day Wedding

Valentine’s Day is one and the same with romance and if you’ve chosen this day to marry, you must exude love and romance. Set the stage for your Valentine’s wedding with a tantalizing theme of soft love.

The location for your Valentine’s wedding must provide the feeling of intimacy, a good choice may be a country inn, bed & breakfast or winery.

It does not need to be small, but will ideally provide nooks, alcoves and romantic “hideaways” for guests to rekindle their own romantic flames. Candles and lots of them, soft lighting, comfy sofas for guests to relax in will all set the stage. A romantic country inn, bed & breakfast or winery are all great choices.

On the other hand if your aiming more for a dramatic look full of lusciousness and sexiness, try scouting for castles and historical mansions.

Red is the obvious and dramatic color of Valentine’s romance – the traditional color of the heart. You can play on this color without being limited to the bright red of Hallmark Valentines. Deep burgundies and maroons are just as romantic.

You can also choose a different color scheme for your flowers, bridal party attire and décor. Deep colors tend to be more dramatic like shimmering gold and rich ivories.

Valentine’s Wedding Attire
For your gown, think about what feels romantic to you.  Whether you have a dramatic satin or velvet dress with a plunging neckline, or a tight bodice with a tremendous skirt, always dress to capture the essence of the mood.

For the groom, a traditional black tuxedo with a red rose boutonniere or a deep red tie is dashing. Or a more 1940’s twist may be up your alley.

Floral designer Joe Massie and his Valentine's Day flower dress really caught our eye!

Valentine’s Wedding Decorations
Candles, candles and more candles!!!!!!!!!!  Candelabras will also help set the mood. Any lighting should be low, and fabrics should be soft and light.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
