Valentines Day Wedding Theme
For the last century, thousands of couples rush off each year to
say "I do" on Valentine's Day. There's something so spectacular and
romantic about the month of February. Images of cupid and chocolate
filled hearts make our own hearts flutter with the hope of
If you've chosen to have your own themed wedding, you can select
great wedding decorations, colors, invitations, and wedding favors
to accommodate your Valentines Day wedding theme. Set your budget
and prepare to make a list of all the items you will need.
Think white, pink, and of course-red. White flowers represent
purity. Pink flowers represent passion. Red for everlasting love.
Put the three colors together and you have a powerful combination
that expresses your sweetest sentiments to your spouse and all of
your guests. Different flowers to consider are roses and
carnations, perhaps even white lilies.
You don't want your wedding to look commercialized like the window
display at a card store. Avoid large cupid cut-outs and gigantic
teddy bears. Of course it's a themed wedding, but you still want to
capture intimacy and elegance. For theming your centerpieces, you
can consider large frosted bowls filled with water, lit floating
votives, and red rose petals. The table can be accented with red

It's quite easy to accommodate a Valentine's Day themed wedding
with favors. You can give your guests Hershey kisses in a sachet,
personalized sweetheart candies that say "thank you (last name)
family," Jordan almonds in the shape of a heart, sugar cookies,
chocolate covered pretzels, or a CD of memorable love songs that
played during the night.
The Head table should be decorated with exceptional taste.
Nevertheless, this doesn't mean that you should go out of your
budget. If you can not afford fresh-cut flowers for the Head table,
make a large arrangement of silk flowers (which can look quite
realistic). If you can not arrange your own flowers, have silk
arrangements ordered from your local florist.
If you're not satisfied with the presentation of your
chairs/table, get creative and make them work with your theme. Arts
and craft stores can become your best friend if you let your
imagination run wild. Fabrics, Ribbons, and Pillows can add a tough
of love and comfort to anything. It also shows that you put a lot
of effort into customizing your wedding
