It’s one of the most romantic days of the year, and it’s right around the corner! Valentine’s Day began in the year 496 and has since evolved into a romantic day of Hallmark cards, expensive dinners, and passion. If you are a bride-to-be, utilize Valentine’s Day to make your wedding unforgettable. Whether you’re holding your actual wedding on February 14th or taking advantage of the lover’s holiday for other creative reasons, there’s no end to the fun you can have with Valentine’s Day.
Have Your Cake, and Eat It Too
If you’re celebrating your wedding around Valentine’s Day, embrace the theme with a red velvet cake and a heart-shaped dessert bar. And what better table decorations than sweetheart candy? You could also break tradition and choose a heart cake rather than a tall tiered cake.
Send Your Save the Date or Invitation
Perhaps you aren’t getting married until June, but Valentine’s Day would be such a fun time to send out your save the dates or invitations. The timing allows you to have fun with the design and color of the cards: heart-cut invitations tied with red ribbon, anybody?
Add a Splash of Red or Pink
Whether it’s your actual wedding, bachelorette, or bridal shower occurring around Valentine’s Day, add a splash of red in with all of the white. Try sexy red heels, a red hair pin, or even have your groom wear a red tie and socks. Have fun with it!
Go Crazy with Décor
With Valentine’s Day as your inspiration, there’s no limit to your décor possibilities. Consider dressing up your dessert display with garland and red foam balls hung on fishing line, or add a heart-shaped wreath of flowers behind your dinner table. Better yet, revolutionize the standard guest book idea with Mad Libs-style love letters.
Don’t let this day pass you by. Have fun with the many possibilities it offers for your wedding celebrations.
