Love is in the Air – Valentine’s Day Wedding Ideas
So you’re hit by cupid’s arrow and finally getting married with the one you love. Congratulations! But let’s get to the point. Everyone dreams of a romantic Valentine’s Day wedding, but you have to be realistic to make it come true. Valentine’s Day wedding leaves you with same old common wedding details. Only a heart shaped cake and garlands are not going to work. How to make your wedding stand apart then? Don’t worry. You’ve to think out of the box. And the ideas below will help you in doing just that!
A Room for Romance
Along with the décor details, the vibe itself should be romantic and intimate. And to do that, fill the reception site with lots of candles to create a cosy setting for guests. And if there’s a fireplace, do not give it a second thought and light it up! It’ll help guests keep the February chills at bay and also create a warm and romantic aura. And when it comes to texture, think of faux fur cushions for lounge area and silk linen for tables and curtains.
Roses are obvious but other blooms can be equally romantic. Lily and Amaryllis are a few dramatic flowers that perfectly complement the snowy season and add a statement to your D Day décor. Mix baby pink roses with pearly white lilies or deep red calla lilies with cockscomb. Suspended flowers will also heighten the dramatic effect. But do not restrict your imagination to flowers. You can always experiment with brooches, crystals, and feathers. Suspend crystal chandelier from the ceiling or hang crystal leis in the backdrop to set a luxurious backdrop.
The Colours of Love
Red is almost synonymous with Valentine’s Day. The least you can do to stick to the traditional palette is think pink. But do not go for an all-pink wedding, it would look clumsy. Instead, add some unexpected details with touches of ivory and white. Think tiered pearly white cake with flower icing and ballet slipper pink ribbon around the tiers. The contrast will certainly look romantic.
Outdoor weddings truly personify romance. From the tress draped with fairy lights to the paper heart garlands, everything will make the scene look whimsical and fairylike. And of course, you can always take things up a notch with flowers petals leading to the aisle. Think white chair covers and pink satin sashes. Tie pink heart shaped balloons at the back of chairs to complete the look. Also, fix shepherd’s hooks on the aisle and hang wooden baskets filled with red and white flowers or portraits of the couples.
Light It Up with Love
Lighting can truly transform the whole scene if used with perfection. Think the type of setting you want to create – purple means passion whilst shades of pink mean romance and love. Dress up your dance floor with a heart-shaped gobo light to set the right mood. Fill cylindrical vases with roses and LED lights to make your tables look wow-worthy and quixotic. And nothing says romance better than candlelight, so don’t forget to use flower-draped candelabras or glass-votive.
Love is a luxury that not all can afford! But that doesn’t mean that you have to go over-the-top to achieve that romantic look. Choosing the right venue can really make a difference. A garden or a courtyard is an obvious choice but if you want to blend luxury with romance, a Livery Hall can be a nice option. The chandeliers, linen, antique paintings, detail engraved ceiling, marble pillars, and what not, these halls have everything to give that romantic edge to a wedding.
But we have saved the best for the last. Nothing can really match the romantic ambience of a venue with a view. Think about a Thames cruiser where you could exchange vows on the deck against the glimmering panorama of the city landmarks. Or a rooftop penthouse with balcony or large glass windows framing views of the city lit up at night. 30° C is it that sandy there?
Themes for the Day
Think of a heart shaped arch. It’ll definitely turn heads, as you’ll walk down the aisle. Heart shaped wreath in the backdrop will evoke love for sure. Heart weddings give plenty of photo opportunities. How about heart shaped frame and umbrella for your photo booth. If you are getting married outdoors, why not carve your initials in a heart onto a tree? Make your love timeless with this gesture. If you really want to go over-the-top, a heart cut work at the back of your dress will look quite pretty.
This can be a good option for if you’re an offbeat bride who doesn’t refrain from trying something unusual. A heart shaped cake with cupid’s arrow piercing it will serve as a delicious décor detail. You can also infix cupid’s arrows on pathway leading to the groom. If you really want to make your guests say, “Wow”, dress the ring bearer as cupid. What can be more romantic than this? As far as your wedding day look is concerned, add wings for an angelic look and complement your wedding hairdo with a bow and arrow shaped silver accessory.
Leave your guests awe-struck as they enter the reception site. There’s nothing more romantic than a love birds wedding as the very theme suggest love and romance. Birds reside outdoors and there’s no better venue than a garden. To set the romantic vintage vibe, suspend birdcages from the trees with real birds so their twitter will make the “I Do” moment even more magical. To complement the theme, you can wear a birdcage veil. Yes, you read that right! Birdcage veils are back with a bang.
If you’ve decided to exchange your vows on Valentine’s Day, ideas are endless. You just need to think offbeat and you’ll be successful in creating the wedding of your dreams.
