Have your heart set on a Valentine’s Day wedding but want a unique theme to accent your special day? We’ve got some ideas that can really play up your Valentine’s Day wedding with a unique theme that is completely, uniquely you:
Love Dove Valentine’s Day Wedding
Invitations: Think birds, feathers or any play on your love dove theme.
Accents: Use feathers in your centerpieces, wedding dress, bouquets (even your hairpiece!) and décor to show that “birds of a feather flock together.” Create a sign or short video with that title with photos of your time together for display.
Food ideas: Cupcakes that look like birds or a cake with a tree design play up your love bird theme.
Centerpieces: Trees with branches (which you can use to put favors on) for centerpieces decorated with your colors, decorated bird cages or vases with tree branches (either neutral or with sparkle) all play up your love bird theme.
Colors: Though the traditional colors of Valentine’s Day are red, white and pink, your love bird theme gives you a bit of leeway. Consider white doves and gold or silver branch decorations for a neutral palette or a burst of color with a peacock themed reception hall with blues and greens.
Preparation. For a classic love or vintage theme, think through what specific tone you want to set. Are you a couple in love with a specific era? Or do you want to give your wedding a classic, elegant (think Jackie Kennedy or Grace Kelly) feel? Would you like to fashion your wedding around an antique or motorcycle? Or do you want a classic theme that demonstrates your love will last throughout time?
Invitations. Depending on what era or specific tone you want to set, consider an invitation that shows your love can last through the ages by finding a vintage invitation. The look of lace on an invitation can give your wedding a classic, elegant feel, or an invitation with a classic car. If your wedding is set in a specific era, find invitations with a faded look for an old-time feel or a peppy sock hop feel that matches your preference. Vintage wedding items are very hot right now, so take your pick from many options.
Centerpieces/table: Choose a reception hall that is traditional and historical or a neutral background for your vintage reception, such as 1451 Renaissance Place. Think lace tablecloths with a touch of a vintage color (for a Valentine’s Day touch use faded red or pink), or a clean, neutral palette for your décor with red or pink accents. Use daisies, small lamps or flowers to really capture the feel of your chosen era. Depending on your chosen era, pearls can give your cake and reception hall a classic feel.
How to bring Valentine’s Day in: Color and hearts will bring your Valentine’s Day date in to your wedding. You can also highlight your Valentine’s Day in your dessert choices and favors.
Invitations. Think bling, silver or gold for your invitations and wedding décor. Look for invitations with foil, crystal, diamond and metallic accents to give your guests a preview of the glow of your reception.
Centerpieces. Lighted centerpieces or candles with (red?) crystals can set the lighting with a unique glow your guests appreciate.
Food: Choose a cake or desserts with crystal accents, and place settings that match.
Décor & accents: Choose crystals, candles and uplighting that accents your romantic glow. Use metallic accents to reflect and give your reception a soft shimmer. Highlight your special day with your name in lights, or uplighting behind your names or Mrs. & Mr. letters.
