Inspiration for Your Valentine's Day Wedding

Any day that you choose to marry the love of your life is bound to be special but what could be more enchanting than saying “I do” on Valentine’s Day, when love is celebrated all over the world. Your anniversary will forever be aligned with the day of love. We can’t think if anything more romantic!

From delightful pink bouquets to heart-shaped décor, we’re here to inspire you with a plethora of ideas for your Valentine’s Day wedding, ensuring a celebration as unique and timeless as your love.

2. Dress to Impress

While a traditional white dress exudes timeless elegance, consider a red dress for that unforgettable ‘wow’ factor! If red isn’t for you, a blush pink dress adorned with romantic floral appliqués or delicate lace will certainly make your partner blush as you glide down the aisle. 

For the suit enthusiasts, elevating your look with a coloured tuxedo is a surefire showstopper. Alternatively, if there’s already enough love in the air, a red boutonnière or tie is the perfect touch.

4. Dress Bridesmaids in Pink

Pink has long been associated with romance and femininity, making it a timeless choice for weddings, particularly those that fall on Valentine’s Day. Embrace the love in the air with blush-toned dresses and accessories to match. Consider affording your bridesmaids the choice of a range of pinks and reds to create a stunning visual palette and express their individuality.

5. A Momento For Your Bridesmaids

Valentine’s Day is of course about celebrating romantic love, especially on your wedding day, but let’s not forget to cherish plutonic love. Dried flower invitations provide a lasting reminder of your love and appreciation for your bridesmaids. 

6. A Love Letter That Lasts a Lifetime

Add the perfect loving touch to your special day with a personalised heartfelt note to your partner. Exchanging Valentine’s cards is of course a must for any couple on the day of love, but seeing as a wedding is in order, an extra dash of romance can’t hurt!

Love at first bite! A wedding would be incomplete without a sweet treat for you and your guests to enjoy. A Valentine’s Day wedding calls for something extra special and we love the idea of incorporating fuchsia and crimson roses to add a romantic touch to a traditional cake.
