Valentines Wedding Theme

Imagine heart shaped cakes, red and white striped straws, red roses on the white four-tiered cake, coffee served with heart shaped milk froth,  the bride in blood red or white with a red petticoat and shoes with red bows, red rose candles…the possibilities are endless.

There is probably nothing more fairytale than a Valentine’s wedding. Your only problem is getting a venue for the 14 Feb. Those tying the knot this year will just manage it as the 14th falls on a Thursday. The next three years’ worth of 14th February fall over a weekend – so make sure you book your venue now!

Not to mention the cost of red roses and other little ‘red’ aspects. For this time of year the price sky rockets and not a (cheap) rose is to be found.

But there are ways to manage a Valentine’s wedding without falling into the commercial trap – we have a few ideas:

  • Book your venue way in advance so that you beat the onslaught
  • The same thing goes for your wedding photographer, officiator, caterer – book them as soon as you know that you’ve set the date
  • Choose somewhere that lends itself to a romantic setting – you want to be able to light candles or fill it with flowers; somewhere you can surround yourself with all the trimmings of a weekend with romance at its heart
  • Think music – a string quartet or an opera singer (if music be the food of love…)
  • Go for something slightly gothic – have a white cake, each tier embellished with black velvet ribbon, topped with magenta roses – it looks incredible
  • If you choose an outdoor wedding, hang gentle wooden or cardboard hearts from the branches of the tree under which you marry
  • Sprinkle red tipped peach and yellow rose petals around red glass candle holders for table décor
  • Send your betrothed a ‘will you marry me?’ card just ahead of the wedding
  • Make velvet roses and stand them in glass jars as centre pieces – you’ll sidestep the rose market and keep them for the rest of your lives (visit Etsy if you can’t make them yourself)
  • Make gothic Valentine’s biscuits – heart shaped with curlicue icing
  • Wear a low-key lacy vintage dress and veil, but add red shoes
