This year Valentine's Day falls on a Saturday and as luck would have it, Saturday is also the most popular day for weddings. For those brides and grooms who want to have a truly momentous day to cherish as their anniversary, Valentines 2009 is the perfect day to say, “I DO”.
For colors, incorporate various shades of reds, pinks, and white. Roses are the most popular flower associated with Valentines Day, but will be significantly more expensive, opt for tulips, orchids, and carnations instead. For your bridal party have your bridesmaids wear red and the groomsmen in winter white tuxes with red ties and boutonnières. For your grand walk down the aisle, use a beautiful white monogrammed aisle runner lined with red rose petals and candles.
For the reception, go with white floor length table linen, red overlays, and white chair covers with a red sash. As a centerpiece, incorporate various shades of pink, white and red flowers and again use lots of candles to give it that romantic touch and feel. A beautiful white cake accented with red flowers and a signature red or pink martini is something your guests will be sure to enjoy. One of the most important details that shouldn’t be overlooked is your candy or dessert bar! How can you have a Valentine’s Day wedding without allowing your guests to indulge themselves with various pink, white, and red desserts that will be sure to keep their attention?
With all the love and whimsical romance associated with Valentine's Day not only will you enjoy your wedding day, but your guests will too.
