Red and pink are the traditional colors for the Valentine’s Day. You can choose to stick by them or do something unexpected. For instance, a black and white palette with small accents of red and pink would look elegant and unusual. Whatever you choose, just remember to stick by the palette in every aspect of your wedding.
Say It with Flowers
Flowers are by definition romantic, so use them is abundance. While roses are classic, other blooms can be just as romantic and stylish. Tulips, freesia, hydrangea, and amaryllis are some great options for Valentine’s Day wedding.

A heart cake is always great for weddings, but for a Valentine’s Day wedding, it’s even better! As you cut the cake, a big heart in the center would be a nice surprise for your guests. You can get more creative by adding different colors but make sure to stick to your color palette. Alternatively, a heart pattern embossed into traditional white cake would equally serve the purpose.
Set the Mood with Lighting
String soft red or pink lights everywhere to set the romantic mood and warm up the space. A heart shaped gobo spotlight would look stunning up your dance floor. And of course, nothing says romance more than candles. Go for heart shaped floating candles and place them in clear crystal bowls on tables or create a more contemporary look with frosted glass votives.

It’s likely that your first dance will be on a love song. But if you want to keep the romantic mood running all night long, create a list full of love songs. It’s also a great idea to ask your guests to fill in a song of their choice on their RSVP cards. Alternatively, a string quartet or an Italian opera singer is worth considering.
Say Thank You
Though they are details often forgotten, favors are a great way to thank your guests for their attendance. Send them home with a tiny box of chocolates or a cute heart shaped cookie cutter. Another great option is this elegant rose ball candle favor made of tiny rose buds from the knot wedding shop.
