With Valentine’s Day approaching, and couples tapping into the season for wedding themes, we thought to give some tips. A Valentine-themed wedding can be romantic and memorable, but it takes careful planning to ensure it doesn’t become cliché.
We’ve come up with some tips that’ll ensure your Valentine-themed wedding is memorably un-cliché.
Instead of using only the usual white and red, adding other subtle colours will tone down the obvious Valentine colours. Love-themed but subtler colours like rose gold, pink, cream. e.t.c. are excellent for this. You can also choose a classic black and white palette and subtly add hints of red or pink in the florals.
Everyone will expect to see an overflow of flowers at your wedding because is it even a Valentine wedding without those? You can, however, break the norm by using balloons, big candles, or sparkly liquid in glasses.
Show some love
Most couples just hand out valentine-themed invites and have a hall that resonates with Valentine. You can go a step further and in the spirit of Valentine, give out chocolates, or leave love notes on tables.
Some couples get carried away and have everything in the hall with a love-shaped image on it. It’s a season of love, so why not…right? You can tone it down a bit and have love shapes in the most subtle places…like your hair!
We endorse that you play every romantic song you can find, lol. Don’t forget to personalise it and add songs that mean something to you and your spouse. You can also give your guests a few minutes to slow dance with their partners alongside you and your spouse.
Now that you’ve gotten the key to an un-cliché, fun wedding, here’s how to plan it without breaking down.
