Valentine’s Day is the most romantic day of the year, so it’s no wonder that many couples choose to get married on or around that date as well. While your nuptials don’t need to be entirely made up of Valentine’s Day decor, there’s a variety of fun ideas you can incorporate to stay on theme for a romantic day. From delicious chocolate to signature cocktails, here are seven of our favorite unique Valentine’s Day wedding ideas.
A Valentine’s Day wedding is the perfect excuse to indulge in delicious chocolates, cakes, and other desserts for you and your guests. A gorgeous cake in red or pink colors is right on the theme – you can also add a heart-shaped topper or decals. If you want to make your desserts even more decadent, add some raspberry filling or other fun additions such as red velvet cake or fresh strawberries to really share the love.
Not only are roses the most popular flower for Valentine’s Day, they’re also great for weddings! Depending on your wedding colors, you can find roses in a variety of colors of your choosing from a classic red to pink or cream. Try adding flowers throughout your wedding decor, such as table centerpieces or to line your wedding aisle.
Colored Wedding Dress
While a colored wedding dress may seem like a break from tradition, it can be a fun way to get creative – especially with the theme of Valentine’s Day. Pastels and blush colors are a great choice if you don’t want to stray too far from a white dress. They also look beautiful on nearly every skin tone! For brides looking to incorporate the holiday, we recommend a blush pink to match the rest of your wedding day decor as well.
What better way to say ‘thank you’ to your bridesmaids for being by your side than with a cute ‘Galentine’ gift? It’s the perfect way to show how much you appreciate them while gifting them some fun goodies. Some of our favorite gift ideas include heart-shaped jewelry for Valentine’s Day, fuzzy robe, spa treatment or even a box of decadent chocolates like this subscription box from Godiva.
End your ceremony in style with a gorgeous champagne tower for everyone to enjoy during your wedding reception. Not only are they classic and elegant, but they can also act as a fun party trick as you or your partner pour the champagne. Just be sure to keep your tower away from the dance floor to avoid any risk of someone knocking it over.
Share the Love
Encourage your guests to get even more involved throughout your special day. Leave a guestbook at the front for everyone to check-in and leave a sweet note for you and your partner. Photo booths are also a great way to give them a souvenir. One of our favorite ideas is having a polaroid camera on hand for your guests to take photos with throughout the night as well. Encourage them to take their favorites or leave them for you two to enjoy and look back on the memories.
Celebrate your love in style with a tasty signature cocktail created just for your special day. Impress your guests with some delicious sparkling wine or rosé along with fresh berries. You can even get extra creative and craft ice cubes with edible flowers inside for a cute surprise or line the brim with sugar for some extra flavor.
