When choosing a date for their wedding, some brides opt for the most romantic day of all – Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re throwing a huge celebration of love, keeping it intimate, or even eloping, let the sweet aura of Valentine’s Day set the scene for your fairy tale day with these holiday-inspired details.
Red lipstick is timeless, just like your love. Keep the rest of your make-up simple or subtle to keep from looking dramatic – unless that’s what you want, of course. For this look, the stylist chose a ruby red lipstick to compliment the bride’s vintage-inspired gown.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to go all-out on ornate floral decor. Say “I do” under a canopy of pink, red, and white blooms for the ultimate expression of your fairy tale romance, and keep the romance going with voluminous aisle arrangements and a trail of petals leading to your sweetheart. The more fragrant blossoms, the better!
For a classy, subtle nod to the Valentine’s Day theme, give your groom a boutonniere of red and pink flowers with a sweet touch – a small Cupid’s arrow. It won’t distract or feel campy, but it will keep his look tied in with yours.
Table for Two
During the reception, don’t forget to take a moment with your love to enjoy the food. With this lovely sweetheart table placed in front of a dramatic backdrop of cascading flowers, you’ll feel like a princess while you stop for a bite.
