Gorgeous Valentine's Day Wedding Ideas For You To Steal:


Valentine's Day-themed wedding invitations
Pretty-in-pink wedding stationery or gorgeously designed wedding invitation suites dressed up in red bow ties or romantic roses can go a long way to set the mood for your big Valentine's Day wedding. Thematic wedding invitation suites can be the first hints for your wedding guests to your Valentine's Day wedding affair. You can personalize your wedding invitation suites by incorporating a romantic touch like a custom heart-shaped illustration or soft calligraphy or even a red and pink color scalloped border that gently introduces Valentine's Day wedding theme. Be sure to note on the invitation that it's Valentine's Day wedding in case guests don't immediately notice that from the date. 


Select a romantic wedding venue
One of the most important aspects of wedding planning is selecting your wedding venue. And, if romance is important to you, the location of your wedding should reflect that. Do you know how certain areas make you feel romantic? Choose a romantic wedding venue that complements your V-Day wedding theme, whether it's the view, the lighting, or the decor! There are many award-winning romantic wedding venues across the country for you to choose from to host your big wedding day.


Valentine's Day wedding favors
Valentine's Day wedding gift favors can be as quintessential as giving away books or as luxurious as giving away rose bouquets. Valentine's Day-inspired thank-you gifts can be also a no-brainer as pink and gold glitter cake pops. If giving useful thank-you gifts is your thing then you can also opt for heart-shaped cookie cutters which your guests will actually use in their homes. Also giving winter-inspired wedding favors like champagne gummy bears or a gold heart bottle stopper can be great additions to Valentine's Day weddings. Another cute wedding favor idea can be giving away tiny romantic matchboxes with adorable and tiny heart motifs. 


Play romantic and soft wedding tunes
There is no better way to set a mood than through music. Make sure your wedding DJ allows time for some old-fashioned love songs and happy dancing tracks so that everyone may get into a festive love mood. Although your first dance will almost certainly be to a love song, ask your guests to write their first dance song (or simply the name of their "special song" with their partner) on their RSVP card to keep the vibe romantic all night. Including some of those songs in your wedding playlist is a beautiful way of paying honor to them while also allowing them to relive some of their fondest memories.


Simple Valentine's Day wedding details
Little wedding details add up to become big and statement-making wedding ideas. Tender and subtle wedding ideas like a reception table with labels that feature the word "kiss" in different languages can be a delicate wedding detail that goes on to speak volumes! Similarly setting up a wedding photo booth with a cupid's arrow and target décor piece has strong romantic nods. How about a creative toss idea that doubles up the romance level? Here you can distribute flower petals in pages from your favorite love-themed novel. How adorable is that! Or go bold by ordering a shiny red car for orchestrating a dramatic wedding exit that looks straight out of a Ben Affleck movie!


Plan a getaway
Love destination weddings? Combine Valentine's Day and a destination wedding together! Maybe it's time to migrate to a warm destination for your Valentine's Day wedding. Anyone who lives in a cold-climate area knows that now is the perfect time to escape the cold and visit a warm-weather state. Make it an out-of-state wedding in warm states like California or Florida so that everyone can take advantage of the warm weather.


Heart-shaped wedding décor
A Valentine's Day wedding naturally means a lot of heart-shaped wedding accents that are going to adorn the details. Embracing holiday favorites, you can include all the hearts and flowers in the world into your décor along with adding personalized touches throughout the wedding day details. For instance, a floral-decorated truck bed with a custom heart sign that doubles as a statement wedding ceremony entrance and a photo booth at the reception can be a great way to incorporate heart-shaped details without going overboard. Similarly, heart-shaped wedding balloons can be fun accessories to carry down the aisle for your ring bearer and flower girls which can be later incorporated into the wedding reception décor. A modern heart-shaped neon sign can be a cool and funky prop to incorporate into your Valentine's Day wedding details by pairing them with other glitter and sequin wedding details


Go for a romantic bridal look
Why not incorporate some Valentine’s details into your bridal look if you are getting married on Valentine's Day? You can always add a unique and charming touch without going overboard, whether it's your hair, accessories, or bridal shoes. Consider a modest red hairpiece or red roses in your hair. Why not add a splash of color to your bridal look with red bridal shoes? You can even incorporate Valentine's Day motifs into your nail art! Your guests will like the lovely bridal look if you keep it simple and sweet!


Romantic wedding cocktail hour
Romantic cocktail reception seating arrangement with a mix of vintage settees and upholstered chairs in shades of pink or decorating your wedding bar with a little V-day wedding charm can be a great start to set the mood. Inspirational Valentine's Day cocktail hour details and décor can have anything from a mobile bar set up with various romantic styles and textures blended together to pink and red-colored signature wedding cocktails that nod to your romance-inspired wedding theme, inspirations are endless 


Heart-shaped wedding altar or arch
Exchange vows under a heart-shaped arch of flowers! If your wedding ceremony is all about declaring love, then why not go all bold with a heart-shaped wedding arch or altar? A statement-making wedding altar or arch can set the tone for your love-filled event. Red and pink flower petals can also line the wedding aisle that leads to the ceremony structure for a more elevated romantic feel. If your venue happens to have a grand white staircase, you can consider decorating the handrails with red roses for a more upgraded look. You can also decorate your wedding arch with balloons in a red, gold, and pink color palette for a more festive feel. Setting up your wedding arch with balloons can also be easily DIY'd for amazing Instagrammable moments! 


Keeping things chic not cheesy
We noted that when it comes to decorating a wedding, it's easy to go overboard. Stores, establishments, restaurants, and even your office will be decked out in red and pink hearts, cupids with bows, and Valentine's Day-themed banners in the days leading up to the big day. You may not be a fan of heart decorations or the colors red or pink, but as your wedding approaches, you may develop a taste for them. If you have a wedding event planner, make sure you go through everything with them. To avoid the obvious decoration, add Valentine's Day themes such as hearts on your accessories or shoes if you are going DIY with the wedding decorations. Just be certain you don't overdo it!


Romantic wedding jewelry and accessories
Heart-shaped wedding jewelry can be a great addition to your 14 February wedding. Imagine wearing a red heart-shaped earring while walking down the aisle that can add a pop of color to your bridal white. If you want something subtle for your ceremony you can also go for heart-shaped diamond stud earrings or a charm bracelet. Your groom wearing "his heart on his sleeve" or his lapel as a heart-shaped groom's boutonniere can go a long way to celebrating your romantic wedding theme. You can also carry a heart-shaped bridal bag on your V-day wedding or a normal-shaped bridal clutch with heart-shaped motifs to keep it subtle. 


Share your love story
To begin, consider Valentine's Day and what it means to you and your partner. Look for ideas in your own romantic story, such as where you met, how you proposed, or what are your favorite activities to do together. If outright Valentine's Day decor isn't your style, include a few personal touches into your wedding theme. Heart-accented shoes, a Cupid's arrow bowtie, or a secretly engraved ribbon bouquet wrap offer seasonal flair without overwhelming your bridal look.


Rose bridal bouquets
You deserve the best and most romantic bouquet! That’s why you deserve nothing less than a bouquet of red roses tied in a bunch with a white bow. Carrying a rose-filled bridal bouquet is almost a must-have on your Valentine's Day wedding. Rose bridal bouquets can have long-stemmed roses in a light color palette which are arranged in a modern style, like being tied with a ribbon or lots of greenery. You can carry a bouquet of roses in any color that fits your palette, or go with red for a classic look. You can personalize the bridal bouquet with custom pink, red, and gold ribbons that are tied to the length of your bouquet.


Create cozy places and lounge areas for chilling
Create cozy and romantic corners all over your reception area. A few faux-fur pillows or throws in the lounge or cocktail areas will soften and warm the ambiance. A lounge area is also a perfect spot to showcase pictures of family members of their wedding days, which is a sweet way to honor all the love stories from previous generations. If you have access to a fireplace or fire pit, light it, or give the idea of a lit fireplace with lots of candles.


Red bridesmaid and groomsmen attire
Dressing up your wedding party in vibrant reds and pinks is a great Valentine's Day wedding idea. Let your team of bridesmaids embrace the wedding theme by dressing up in pink or red bridesmaid dresses or dress up your adorable flower girls in thematic Valentine's Day wedding colors like blush pink or red. You can also add subtle touches to your wedding party attire by planning for plain white bridesmaid dresses with heart prints for a whimsical touch. Crimson red and powder pink formal and casual tuxedos for groomsmen can be an excellent way to bring romance into the air too.


Valentine's Day wedding cake
Your wedding confection does not have to be boring! Go for a traditional white wedding cake dressed up with decorative little red hearts by asking your caterer to cut tiny red hearts out of the fondant for a cute wedding cake decoration. Or go for a statement-making heart-shaped wedding cake topped with monogrammed details. Or as a wedding cake alternative, you can also serve red and pink cupcakes for sweetening up the wedding dessert table even more. 


Set mood lighting
Set the tone with ambient wedding lights. The soft bistro lighting creates a romantic atmosphere, while the brilliant LED lights on the dance floor's edge keep the attention on the music and dancing. Nothing says "romance" like a candlelit meal, which will sparkle even more if you use sequined or silky table linens. Choose ornate, flower-draped candelabras for a more traditional look, or go for a more modern look with floating tea candles in sleek hurricane vases.


Include heart-shaped photo props
Including heart-shaped photo props or other heart-shaped accessories for your wedding photos can be a festive idea for an incredible Valentine's Day-inspired wedding photography session. From heart shapes made out of olive branches to delicate heart-shaped wreaths for the ring bearer and flower girls to carry down the aisle can double up as great wedding photo props that are romantically charmed. A heart-shaped escort card display in a tender blush tone which can also double up as a photo booth and valentine-themed wedding favors can be a great DIY wedding idea that is romantic as well.


A Valentine's Day wedding does not necessarily have to happen on the actual holiday; instead, you can plan a romantic wedding with a Valentine's Day theme. It all comes down to choosing how to embrace the selected wedding theme. There are numerous particularly romantic wedding details that can be incorporated into your celebration, from looking through real wedding photo galleries inspired by Valentine's Day to curating your own section of chosen V-day-inspired wedding ideas. Planning small and cozy wedding details that subtly nod to your romantic wedding theme rather than shout about it is one of the simplest ways to incorporate the Valentine's Day wedding theme into your celebration. For example, incorporating reds and pinks into your wedding color schemes can be a great way to subtly plan a 14 February wedding.


The sweetest homage to the most romantic holiday of the year and how it makes your poetic hearts flutter is to host a winter wedding on or around Valentine's Day. To show how much you appreciated everyone who attended your wedding or sent their best wishes for your new life, there are a few gestures and wedding ideas that go a long way.
