February is considered by many as a month of love and romance. And how fun would it be to get married on or (near) the day of Love – Valentine’s Day? In the words of Thomas Moore, "Marriage is an authentic weaving together of families, of two souls with their individual fates and destinies, of time and eternity--everyday life married to the timeless mysteries of the soul. I know I am too late to post this as my readers who are going to tie the knots on this day would have already started the required arrangements for the most special day of their lives. But still, if you wish to take some few tips or ideas to add the Valentine mood to your wedding here are a few simple yet important tips to fill love and romance in the air on the day of your wedding. So let cupid work its magic into your lives forever.
Begin with the wedding invitations and get a tinge of Valentine in your invitations as well. You can get the wedding invitation cards decorated with cupids and in intricate gold lettering. Also the invitation can be the best conveyer of the colour scheme of the day. Scream love with a picture of you and your hubby on the card.
Valentine’s Day is a very popular day to take wedding vows, so be very careful while selecting the venue of your marriage. You can select a place, where lots of candles can be lit to really set the mood of the ceremony. Look for a place warm enough in mid-February, to be in a secluded garden, or may be a scenic spot with lush flowers around.
The main ingredient for the wedding decoration is flowers and more flowers. Celebrate with perfectly decorated centrepieces and a table set that shows off your Valentine’s Day theme! Tie up your theme with some conversation hearts made into cookies; small gold cupids in floral arrangement kept on the centre tables or large bows (as per the wedding theme) around the backs of chairs to delight your guests.
Throwing some stress on the wedding colour theme would not be a bad idea. Having the all white wedding with silver or gold accents will give a classic elegant statement to your wedding. Other than this, you can also go with the traditional red or pink, or combo of the two. Strike out in a different direction with maybe Lavender which is a highly romantic colour. To give your wedding the magical and cloudy Valentine’s feel, mix with regal blues, shimmering gold, deep greens and rich ivory shades.
Remember whatever you wear on your wedding should match the colour theme of the day. A white dress with red accents on your Valentine’s Day wedding is always welcome. You can also go for deep red, the colour of love. Wear flowers woven into a soft, romantic hairstyle. Your wedding jewellery should reflect the theme with hearts, roses, doves or cupids. Wear rubies to complete the look. The brides can also go for outfits with varying shades of pink, mauve, and silver. On the other hand the groom can wear red ties with different red and pink boutonnieres.
Music would surely prove to be an added bonus for a Valentine's Day wedding ceremony. Set the stage with some romantic wedding music. Select some evergreen love songs. Slow dance tunes with soothing and romantic music will bring out the romantic side in all your guests making it the perfect Valentine’s Day wedding.
Tying the knot on Valentine's Day has been a popular choice for couples since times immemorial. After all, what can be a better option than to promise and swear eternal love on the day dedicated to love? If you are also one of them who has a wedding planned on this special day, the theme should automatically be that of Valentine's Day!
