A wedding celebration is all about love, so it’s no surprise that some couples want to tie the knot on the most romantic day of the year: Valentine’s Day! Of course, the key to a beautiful Valentine’s Day wedding is to use a light touch when referencing the holiday — no baby cupids running around (unless you really want them, of course). Luxurious and romantic fabrics like satin and velvet, a few decadent sweets, and classy shades of red and pink will turn any space into a romantic oasis that will have everyone feeling the love.
Psst... my favorite detail is the neon sign paired with the centerpiece. If you’re looking for some V-Day wedding inspiration (or a few ideas for the best date night ever), check out the ideas below!
“As far as style goes, I dig our Mystic Blue with red or blush. But I would not hesitate to rock ANY of our Black collection with blush or a light pink. Either way, be sure to have a pocket of candy conversation hearts. Be cheesy all day with your bride and surprise her. Randomly placing a “Hubba Hubba” or “Be Mine” in her hand will make for fun memories.” – Nathan Bellah, Director of Marketing at Generation Tux
“Valentine's Day is all about the details and small touches. From special treats to cozy fireplaces - anywhere you can supply an extra pop of pink or red will make it extra special!” – HoneyFitz Events
“A romantic palette of bold reds and pale pinks sets the lovey-dovey mood and is perfect for a Valentine's Day wedding.” – Lisette Gatliff Photography
“We love a good holiday wedding, but the key is to not go too literal with the decor. We like keeping the references fun, for instance with neons woven into the florals, a sparkly dress to evoke bohemian romance and palette that is soft and pretty.” – Jamie Kostechko, Wild Heart Events“It's a fine line between classy and cheesy when it comes to Valentine's Day decor! I suggest focusing on a few focal pieces to really grab your guest's attention, rather than spreading hearts everywhere.” – Nora Sheils, Founder of Bridal Bliss “Go all out with burgundy or red bridesmaids' dresses! Adding a red palette into your flowers and mixing it with some blush tones to soften it will give you that romantic Valentine feel without going overboard! – Erica Trombetti, Infinite Events "There is nothing cheesy about beautiful florals in shades of pink and red as a nod to the most romantic holiday. Whether they are accents on your cake, in your bouquet, or within a stunning hanging floral installation, this is the perfect way to incorporate a traditional Valentine's Day palette.” – Morgan Childs of Moana Events
"Soft and natural colors are the perfect way to refine your Valentine's Day design. For decor inspiration, focus on pinks and reds while including some muted tones helps to ensure that your design and color story won't be cheesy.” – Sarah Strausser of Embark Event Design
“Nothing says celebrating sweet love like eating a ton of sweets! Get dressed up and head out to a pink bar with custom cotton candy drinks!!” – Vanessa Hicks of Vanessa Hicks Photography
“Be playful with the furniture vignettes at your Valentine's Day Wedding! Set the scene with sofas and soft goods in shades of pinks and ivory. Pair these with coffee tables and decor in shades of gold to finish the look. It also wouldn’t hurt to offer some yummy bites like pink marbleized donuts to fulfill everyone’s sweet tooth craving! “– Sterling Social
“Valentine's Day is the most romantic holiday of them all so bringing the love into your wedding details is always a great idea! Using deep shades of red in the flowers and details against a sophisticated wedding dress or backdrop of black helps the red stick out and be the most noticeable.” – Valarie Falvey of Kirkbrides
