It’s hard to differentiate between a Valentine’s Day wedding and any other wedding because, well, they signify the same things: romance, eternal love, a bond between two people, etc. If you want a Valentine’s Day theme–or even just wedding decorations heavy on the heart motifs–we’ve got a few ways you can inject the sweet into your own wedding theme:

Pile on the sweets. Add unique heart-shaped marshmallows instead of chocolate or a sweet lollipop as treats during a bridal shower or wedding reception. Keep it bright with light pink or crisp white.
Artful photoshoot. Have fun with your Valentine’s theme with bubblegum pink oversized balloons and long ribbon. Take your props outside to a picturesque setting a la the field above and don’t forget to take a shot with roses and matching red heels! Wouldn’t these be gorgeous images to remember you + your dress by?

A DIY element. Do you embroider, knit, sew or craft? Now’s the time to let that part of you or your groom’s personality shine. Draw or sew hearts and love notes onto fabric for to personalize your Valentine’s Day theme.
Romantic details. Combine lace and ribbons for a subtle tribute to Valentine’s Day romance. Even if red and pink aren’t in your theme, adding delicate details like the table runner in the photos above will have the same effect.
Pop of red. Choose cherry red bridesmaid dresses that contrast with the white gown. Red channels a cheerful vibe, and succulent bouquets and gold heels keep it unique.
Eclectic color scheme. Who says Valentine’s Day means red and pink only? Go with whatever colors work for your wedding, and add romantic elements like hearts, flowers, texts, and DIY elements we mentioned above. That way, you add that Valentine’s Day element without totally conforming to a cliche color scheme that may not fit your personalities.
