Creative Ways Of Incorporating Valentine’s Day Into Your Wedding

Valentine’s Day is all about love and bliss. The best way to bring color and love to a wedding is borrowing a valentine’s theme into a wedding. Below are ideas on how best to chip in a Valentine’s Day feeling into a wedding: –

Shout Valentine’s with flowers

Valentine’s Day is all about flowers, and gifting them, so a wedding can easily catch a Valentine feel by incorporating lots of red and white rose flowers. Another option can be making use of non-flower pieces, an example of the glamorous red-tinted Integrifolia, which is usually a narrow red foliage.

Play sweet love music

Music can be played from a record, or the wedding planners can hire a live music band. The music should be smooth and not as loud as music from other events. This music creates a love ambiance, which is the main characteristic of Valentine’s Day.

Borrow color combinations from Valentine’s

The main valentine day colors are red and pink, which are used as the primary colors for love. Wedding planners can use red or pink as the theme color of the wedding, including all the floral parts such as the centerpiece. They can then throw in a black with a red tie and pocket piece for the groom. These colors not only give the wedding a valentines touch, but also the feeling of love.

Add creative lighting

Lighting can be done creatively, such as glass covered candles lining up the center of the dining tables. The candles can be complemented with red roses for the completely natural look, and also the candle-lit dinner touch. One can also incorporate lightly glowing LED lights, especially in the dance area.

Invitation card

The first way of creating a Valentine mood is incorporating the feeling in the invitation card. This can be done by the design of the card, choosing pink or red as the predominant color, and giving the card a heart shape. The message on the card should be smooth too, such as “Come celebrate love with us” instead of the usual “We invite you to our wedding”.

A Valentine-themed menu

Normal wedding menus have heavy meals, but a valentine themed wedding should incorporate valentine like meals. This includes incorporating a lot of finger foods, such as chocolate bars, cupcakes, and oyster bars. These foods can be laced with chocolate and candy bars in red or pink wrappings for the ultimate romantic table.

Tiny gifts for guests

During the evening party, the couple can make tiny gifts such as chocolate pieces wrapped in a red or pink wrapping. This wrapping can have a special romantic message, thanking the guests for the visit.

Red or pink balloons

Weddings have ballooned as a form of decoration, though they are often round shaped and mixed bright colors. A Valentine-themed wedding can involve heart-shaped balloons, which are either pink or red in color, which gives the wedding a general Valentine’s Day allure.

Incorporating valentines into your wedding should be more exciting than confusing, if these points were to be followed.

“Music is the language of the soul,” so one quote goes. And it’s true. Nothing quite captures the mood we’re in more than lyrics accompanied by an infectious melody.

When we’re down, we either play music to accompany the emotions we’re going through or use it as a pick me up, listening to ditties that make us cheerful and happy. Likewise, when we feel as if we’re in love with someone, nothing sums up that expression more than love songs. Continue reading
