There’s no month more romantic than February. With images of cupids and hearts everywhere, it’s hard not to think about love. Forget what people say about the commercialism of the holiday—it’s the romance a bride is after. A summer wedding can be great because of the weather, but outdoor venues might be overly crowded. A winter wedding might be beautiful if there’s snow, but if you are in a city like Portland, Oregon where River’s Edge Catering is located, chances are you will simply have a soggy wedding. If you have a wedding planned for February, think of the endless heart, cupids, and Valentine’s Day themes to make your dream wedding come true.
If you are planning a February wedding and looking for Valentine’s Day wedding ideas, consider some from this list below.
Send invitations that look like Valentine’s Day cards, or even use Valentine’s Day cards as wedding invitations.
Decorate tables with paper doylies, candy hearts and holiday decorations.
Accent clothes with red or pink.
Wear red high heels.
Give away boxes of candy hearts or heart shaped chocolates as party favors.
Decorate with red and white, or pink and white themes.
Walk down an aisle that is covered in red rose petals.
Serve a heart-shaped cake.
Cover the cake in red roses.
Select red bridesmaid gowns.
Wear red rose hair fasteners.
Sprinkle heart confetti on tables.
Decorate tables and bouquets with red or pink roses.
Serve red velvet cake.
Select a red tie for the groom.
Sprinkle the cake or buffet table with edible heart sprinkles.
Use Sweet Hearts as accents on the cake.
Plan a wedding shower with a heart theme.
Give the ring bearer a heart-shaped pillow to carry the ring on or a heart-shaped box to carry it in.
Throw flower petals instead of rice.
Play romantic music, whether that is “Romeo and Juliet” by Dire Straits, or “I Will Always Love you”—your choice of the Dolly Pardon or Whitney Huston version. Or maybe your taste is more along the Righteous Brothers “Unchained Melody,” Bryan Adams “Everything I Do,” or Barry White’s “I’m Gonna Love You Just a Little More, Baby.”
