With more than 16,000 people celebrating an anniversary on Valentine’s Day each year, it’s one of the most popular months for a wedding. With romance in the air, it’s also the perfect time to celebrate your love. From fresh roses to romantic treats, here are some of our favorite Valentine’s Day ideas for a February wedding.
Colored Wedding Dress
Colored wedding dresses have become quite popular in recent years, with many brides skipping the traditional white gowns. We recommend choosing a subtle blush shade for a February wedding, or a bold maroon to make a statement. You can also choose similar shades in your bridesmaids dresses for a more cohesive color palette.
Red + Pink Roses
February is the month of love, and what better flowers to represent that love than a beautiful bouquet of roses. From your centerpieces to venue decor, incorporate your favorite color roses wherever you see fit. You can also add in some lighter shades such as blush pink or cream for some extra pops of color.
Themed Photo Booth
Give your guests a souvenir to remember with a romantic themed photo booth at your reception. Gather your favorite funny props such as heart-shaped glasses, silly hats, mustaches and other easy ideas. You can also create glitter props with your names or initials on them, or keep it simple with paper hearts for guests to hold up in the photos as well.
Valentine’s Day is known for its tasty desserts like candy hearts and boxes of chocolate. Get creative with the sweet treats for your own February wedding with heart-shaped candies monogrammed with your initials to hand out as party favors. Macaroons are also a fun nod to the holiday and come in a variety of colors and flavors. For the adults, we recommend serving a whimsical cocktail such as a cotton candy martini or champagne with fresh berries.
