Valentine’s Day is all about LOVE. If you plan to get hitched on the most romantic day of the year, here are a few dreamy ideas to inspire your special day.
Decorate with plenty of red. Red is the color of love! Therefore, Valentine’s Day is marked with all the red flowers, boxes of chocolate, and teddy bears you can imagine. But, why red? Psychologists have found both sexes to be more attracted to a mate when they are wearing this brilliant color. So, bring it on and don’t be shy. Show it off with bridesmaid’s dresses, flowers, tablecloths, centerpieces, and anything else you want symbolize love. Be sure to also accessorize with red so your hubby-to-be will be in awe as you walk down the aisle.
Incorporate hearts. The main theme of Valentine’s Day…and your wedding… is love. And what symbolizes love more than a heart? Along with the red accents, use hearts throughout your décor to create a focus on your theme. And don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Heart shaped cakes, balloons, and table decorations are just a start. Sprinkle your reception tables with candy hearts and even create an oversized heart backdrop for the dance floor.
Watch out for cupid! According to classic mythology, Cupid is the god of love who carries an arrow filled with lovestruck desire. If you are hit with his infamous arrow, you will surely fall in love on the spot. He is portrayed as an adorable, chubby boy armed and ready to send his love arrow flying. If you want your Valentine’s Day wedding to symbolize love at its finest, hang cupid in all four corners of your venue. Perhaps he will even create a new match at your reception!
Light it up with candles. Have you ever imagined a romantic, dim evening surrounded by the glow of beautiful candles? This is the perfect setting to bring on the romance at your wedding. Use it to light up the aisle before you make your appearance and set one on each table at your reception. With a brilliant balance of candles and mood lighting, romance will surely fill the air.
