Valentine’s Day Wedding Inspiration

With Valentine’s Day falling on a weekend this year and next – it is a popular day to tie the knot! Take the most romantic day of the year and kick it up a notch with these 7 tips for creating a beautiful and elegant Valentine’s Day wedding:

Figure out What Valentine’s Day Means to You

Before you start planning, think about why you decided to get married on Valentine’s Day. What does that day mean to you? Was it the day of your first kiss or a romantic getaway? Find inspiration from your own love story, and incorporate it into your big day.

Say It with Love

Sending out romantic wedding invitations is the perfect way to set the mood for your wedding. Go all out with beautiful invitations covered in hearts and glitter galore, or create more subtle invitations with hints of romantic details.

Decide on the Perfect Romantic Color Scheme

Don’t be afraid to use red, white or hot pink as your color theme – after all, it’s Valentine’s Day! You can integrate these vibrant colors in your napkins, table runners, flowers or cake décor. However, it doesn't mean that you have to go with this traditional color palette. Try choosing one color (pink or red) and pairing it with another complimentary color. Red and white, pink and orange, or black, white & pink are some great options. If you want to be really subtle about it, try incorporating red or pink into small details like your wedding shoes, ties, bouquet, or centerpieces. This gives you the opportunity to use these romantic colors without being overwhelming.

Bring the Love into Your Dessert

Dessert (in our opinion) is one of the best parts of Valentine’s Day! Go all out with love-themed macaroons, cupcakes, mini cheesecakes, and more. Jewel Hospitality specializes in all kinds of delectable treats, and can decorate them any way your heart desires!

Incorporate Romantic Details into Your Décor

From candles, flowers, hearts, and more - pick a few key romantic details and work them into your fabulous décor. Enhance the mood with soft pink light or candles everywhere. Fill the room with divine smelling flowers; roses are a Valentine’s Day staple, but that doesn't mean other flowers can’t be used. A Valentine’s Day wedding should be filled love and romance.

Music Sets the Stage for Romance

Sit down with your husband or wife to be and brainstorm a list of romantic songs to play at your reception. Was there a song playing the first time you said “I love you” or kissed? Is there a certain song that always reminds you of them? Include those (and many more) on the wedding playlist. Remember that the song you have your first dance to really sets the mood for the night, so pick wisely!

Toast it with a (Pink) Drink

Any Valentine’s wedding deserves its own fabulous signature drink, and incorporating a drink that goes along with your color scheme is even better! Try classics like a Cosmo or a strawberry mojito, or make up your own delightful drink.
