Valentine’s Day Wedding Inspiration

It’s that time of year again – you either love it or hate it – tomorrow is Valentine’s Day.  Media is awash with offers of red roses and romantic meals and whether you choose to celebrate it or not, you certainly can’t avoid it!

What Valentine’s Day does provide though is beautifully romantic wedding inspiration, whether you choose to hold your day on the 14th of February or not.  So I have taken a break from my ‘other’ job as a florist to gather together my favourite Valentine wedding ideas!

The Dress…

Well, you could go full on Valentine and choose to have a red dress…

The Perfect Palette

Or if you prefer just a subtle accent, take a leaf from our Retro Bride’s book and wear a red petticoat to give a glimpse of colour.

The Cake…

There are so many cake ideas that would be great for a Valentine Wedding.  Check out our Pinterest page… we were spoilt for choice!  However, this simple Cupid bow design was one of our favourites.

The Flowers…

As you might expect, red roses are at a premium for Valentine’s Day so it may not fit into your budget to use them for your floral decorations, so how about opting for a seasonal alternative such as pretty pink ranunculus and scented hyacinth?  Mix shades of pink and cerise together with red accents for a truly romantic bouquet.

Venue Decoration…

Choose an area of your venue to create a romantic backdrop for you and your guests to have photographs taken in front of.  Fairy lights, massive letters, florals and fabrics can all be used to transform an empty space.

The Favours….

Everyone loves cookies right?  If you are a dab hand in the kitchen then these are something you could practice doing yourself and then wrap into cute bags with a personalised Love note attached.  Or if you are really dedicated and skilled with icing writing, use the cookies as place settings with your guest’s names written on each one!
