Valentines Day Wedding Ideas
Are you getting married on Valentines Day? You can't get more romantic than that! Even if you don't tie the knot on that actual day, you can use a Valentines day theme which will still have that romantic effect. You can use some of the following ideas to help fill the air with romance:
Book early if your date is Valentines Day as it is very popular! Find a church or country hotel that allows candles, soft music, lush flowers and a late evening ceremony. If you use a hotel you can use it for the ceremony and reception. February is also ski season, so you may even find some great deals at ski resorts for your wedding ceremony/reception!

DecorCreate a romantic atmosphere with candleight and if the location has a fireplace, make sure to use it! Feburary is a cold month, and a warm cozy fire will add to that romantic mood you want to create! Put photos of you and your fiancé on love hearts and put them on the tables. Place red and white candles on the tables and scatter heart shape confetti around them. Instead of using table numbers, name each table after famous couples, such as: Romeo and Juliet!
Walking toward your groom on a blanket of rose petals. Have your florist place five shades of petals, spread out on the aisle. Make sure to seat your guests from the sides so you and your bridesmaids are the first to set foot on them.
