Many couples planning February weddings tend to shy away from a Valentine’s Day Wedding theme. However, if done correctly, incorporating touches of the most romantic holiday of the year can add an extra touch of romance and magic to a wedding. Here are some of our favorite ideas for a Valentine’s Day wedding.
Add Some Valentine’s Day Love to Your Programs
Traditional wedding programs can be plain boring. We love the idea of incorporating the holiday of love into your wedding ceremony programs. Two beautiful ideas include these playful, heart-shaped programs (that double as fans!) and these delicate ombre invitations that subtly incorporate red and pink into the mix.
Embrace all Things Red and Pink When it Comes to Drinks
Opting for a Valentine’s Day themed wedding means incorporating as much red and pink as possible into your ceremony and reception Aside from the more obvious items like flowers, bridesmaid dresses, and table settings, we love the idea of adding unexpected pops of red and pink into your big day — especially with fun drinks! Some unique drink ideas for a Valentine’s Day wedding include these pink cosmos with a strawberry garnish, these romantic Blushing Beauties, or this pomegranate-infused True Love’s Kiss.

Incorporate the Holiday into Your Bridal Accessories
Another cute way to add a touch of Valentine’s Day to your wedding is by opting for bridal accessories that give a nod to the holiday. One easy way to do this is with a pop of red on your feet (we adore these “love” shoes and these heart heels). Some other romantic accessory and attire ideas for a Valentine’s Day wedding include adorning your head with a beautiful flower crown woven from red and pink florals, creating heart-shaped boutonnieres for your groom (and groomsmen!), and outfitting your bridal party in red dresses (and red ties for groomsmen).
