A Valentine’s inspired wedding doesn’t have to mean hearts and chocolates, and other things (cheesy or otherwise!) associated with Valentine’s Day. If you have your heart set on a wedding inspired by this day that historically signifies the celebration of romance and love, look no further.
Pink and red are the colours usually associated with Valentine’s, and incorporating details in these shades into your wedding celebration is a combination that works well whatever time of year you’re marrying in.
Gathering ideas and thinking about the things you both love and reflect your love story are unique ways of including the romance of Valentine’s Day into your wedding. This could be anything from taking a detail of the first Valentine’s card your partner gave you and using it in your wedding stationery; to choosing the same flavour of cake from the slice you first shared together; to combining your favourite cocktail ingredients to make a cocktail designed especially for you.
This inspiration board I have put together uses shades of pink and roses, and is an example of how you can bring together modern and elegant ideas without being obvious that Valentine’s Day is the inspiration.
An abundance of roses in shades of pink, paired with gold cutlery and tableware are modern and elegant; the brides bouquet with added pops of colour and pink ribbon is romantic and the simple cake washed with watercolour detail continues to tell the story.
