For the last century, thousands of couples rush off each year to say “I do” on Valentine’s Day. There’s something so spectacular and romantic about the month of February. Images of cupid and chocolate filled hearts make our own hearts flutter with the hope of everlasting love.
If you’ve chosen to have your own themed wedding, you can select great wedding decorations, colors, invitations, and wedding favors to accommodate your Valentines Day wedding theme. Set your budget and prepare to make a list of all the items you will need.
Think white, pink, and of course-red. White flowers represent purity. Pink flowers represent passion. Red for everlasting love. Put the three colors together and you have a powerful combination that expresses your sweetest sentiments to your spouse and all of your guests. Different flowers to consider are roses and carnations, perhaps even white lilies.
You don’t want your wedding to look commercialized like the window display at a card store. Avoid large cupid cut-outs and gigantic teddy bears. Of course it’s a themed wedding, but you still want to capture intimacy and elegance. For theming your centerpieces, you can consider large frosted bowls filled with water, lit floating votives, and red rose petals. The table can be accented with red silky fabric tablecloths, which can be cut from a fabric store. A small table can hold everyone’s place-setting. In the center of all the cards, a large fishbowl can hold two beta fish. The fish are meant to add a relaxing element. Although fish aren’t exactly considered romantic-it represents the idea of a “two” in harmony.
It’s quite easy to accommodate a Valentine’s Day themed wedding with favors. You can give your guests Hershey kisses in a sachet, personalized sweetheart candies that say “thank you (last name) family,” Jordan almonds in the shape of a heart, sugar cookies, chocolate covered pretzels, or a CD of memorable love songs that played during the night.
The Head table should be decorated with exceptional taste. Nevertheless, this doesn’t mean that you should go out of your budget. If you can not afford fresh-cut flowers for the Head table, make a large arrangement of silk flowers (which can look quite realistic). If you can not arrange your own flowers, have silk arrangements ordered from your local florist.
If you’re not satisfied with the presentation of your chairs/table, get creative and make them work with your theme. Arts and craft stores can become your best friend if you let your imagination run wild. Fabrics, Ribbons, and Pillows can add a tough of love and comfort to anything. It also shows that you put a lot of effort into customizing your wedding.
