VALENTINE THEME WEDDINGS

Valentine’s Day is one of the most romantic days of the year and combined with a romantic wedding – it couldn’t be any more perfect! Below are some ideas on how to create a Valentine Themed Wedding:

ATTIRE
– White or ivory dress edged in lace
– Bridesmaids dressed in red or pink
– Men wear red or pink accents with their attire (red or pink tie, red or pink cumberbund, etc.)

CAKE
– A tiered, heart shape cake with pink or red accents
– A champagne fountain either under a tiered cake or on the cake table adds a romantic touch
– A heart-shaped cake toppper.

CENTERPIECES
– Vases of flowers in your wedding colors.
– Heart-shaped floating candles.
– Heart-shaped topiaries.
– Red and white balloon centerpieces

FAVORS

– Heart-shaped chocolates wrapped in white tulle, then finished off with a red ribbon.
– Heart-shaped candies wrapped in tulle, placed in a glassine bag or a small decorated gift box.
– Pass out single long stemmed roses to all the female guests (one suggestion we received said that they handed them out during a slow dance!).
– Heart-shaped cookie sandwiches with white, pink or red filling (this suggestion came from someone who said they made approximately 3 for every person, and they were gone *very* quickly!)
