Planning a wedding, but can’t decide on the date? Why not choose to tie the knot on the most romantic day of the year – Valentine’s Day!
A Valentine’s Day wedding is the cherry on top to celebrating love and there are so many ways to incorporate the holiday into your wedding, from decorating everything in red to quoting Shakespeare as part of your speech – showing how true of a romantic you really are!
Here are some inspiration Valentine’s Day Wedding Ideas to get you in the mood for love this February.
Red for Romance
Red is the colour of passion of course, and it could be part of your wedding in small or big ways.
Red could be the theme of your wedding, the colour of your florals, bridesmaid dresses, dining cutlery, the wedding cake itself – the possibilities are endless!
The heart is an iconic symbol for Valentine’s Day and to make everybody’s skip a beat, use heart-shaped invitations or name cards to share the love.
Or, spread the love with heart-shaped confetti for guests to throw as you and your partner walk down the aisle. You could also bake some sweetheart biscuits for an afternoon tea or to be used as wedding favours to snack on later.
Speaking of food, spice up your menu with oysters, chilli peppers, asparagus and for dessert, chocolate-coated strawberries – all aphrodisiacs to help send the sparks of love flying.
Let the music transport you into the land of romance with classic love songs playing at the helm of the DJ’s booth or at the string of a guitar with popular acoustic versions of your favourite songs!
You could even sing a romantic duet to show how harmonious you and your partner are vocally and in life.
All in the details
It’s the little things that make a big difference and what makes every wedding unique is how couples take this moment to tell their love story.
Create a scrapbook of all the photos, memories and mementos of the places you’ve been together and the things you’ve done. Let everyone know you’ve been struck by cupid’s bow by engraving a bow on one ring, and a heart on your partners for a little romantic touch.
Decoration wise, name table’s after famous romantic couples or place a chalkboard in the venue for people to write personalised messages to the happy couple. If you want to go for something more traditional, then pay homage to one Valentine’s Day tradition by placing bay leaves on the tables to bring luck and love.
Set the tone with soft lighting, such as candles or fairy lights to turn up the level of romance at your wedding. Our contemporary courtyard is the perfect place for you to create a truly bespoke and romantic atmosphere to sweep guests off their feet.
