Is there anything more iconic for Valentine’s Day than hearts? It also may be the easiest decor element you can use anytime of year to really embrace that “love is in the air” atmosphere for your guests. Heart-shaped balloons, a flower wall in the shape of a heart, a heart-shaped altar design, sweets in heart form (maybe with a sign that says “love is sweet”) and fun heart-eyed sunglasses for the dance party could really make your theme of love come to life. Go all-in with heart-shaped everything for a true Valentine’s Day wedding, or tone things down and incorporate the shape more subtly throughout the day.
Use Valentine’s Day Colors
Incorporating romantic shades of pink and red into your wedding not only works for Valentine’s Day, but any time of the year. Red is the quintessential color of love. Pink is a very calming and romantic color. And there are endless beautiful in-between shades to choose from! If you want a more outgoing and vibrant theme for your wedding, choose bold and vibrant tones to add a little spice to your wedding. If you’re going for more of an understated look, light pinks and blush accents are a great combo.
Flowers as Favors
Millions of flowers are purchased for Valentine’s Day, but they’re a great gift anytime of year! A simple yet charming Valentine’s Day-inspired idea for wedding favors is flowers. Go green and have guests take some of your floral decor for themselves as they leave your celebration. If you want to step it up a notch, have small arrangements made for your guests thanking them for being a part of your big day!
Neon Wedding Sign
Neon wedding signs are a trendy decor option! Your neon sign could have your last name displayed, Mr. & Mrs, love, or really anything that comes to mind. You can buy these customizable signs on a variety of websites and they make for great home decor after the wedding! Go bold with red and pink signs for true Valentine’s Day feels! .
Romantic Guest Book
Everyone at your wedding will have the chance to check out your guest book, so why not give it some really romantic touches? Instead of the traditional guest book where people just sign their names, make it a bit more personal. Have an art print made that ties into your wedding’s theme and let people sign elements of the art like a tree with their own thumbprint leaves. Find some vintage skis that people can sign and you can display in your home long after your wedding day. Set out a Polaroid camera and a blank photo album so guests can snap a shot and leave you a note! Ask for date ideas, wedding advice, or other romantic insight you can treasure for years!
Express your love for one another with love notes on your wedding day. These love notes could be exchanged in front of one another during a first look or privately if you’re saving that special moment for the ceremony. With these love notes, you can confess your love for each other before you get to spend the rest of your lives together. If you have actual love letters from earlier in your relationship or love letters from family members who have been married for years, consider working them into your decorations! If you’re comfortable, these can be a really sentimental decor option.
Roses are iconic when it comes to Valentine’s Day, but widely available throughout the year making them a great option for your wedding bouquet. Being both simple and elegant, they can be designed in the most beautiful ways where you’ll want to preserve your bouquet for after your wedding. There’s really no going wrong with roses for your wedding day!
Top the day off by serving romantic drinks at your Lake Tahoe wedding. Cocktails like berry rose mojitos and pretty-in-pink mimosas, or a champagne tower would be great drinks that give off the Valentine’s Day vibe without being too cliche.
