I could not let Valentine’s Day pass by without a post dedicated to it completely. From wedding color palettes and wedding flowers to table linens and uplighting, continue to read below to learn some wedding ideas and tips for a stylish Valentine’s day inspired wedding.
- Wedding Color Palette: Red and pink – to me, they represent two of the most romantic colors, and they are the easiest way to infuse this holiday into your wedding. However, I love including deeper shades to create rich texture and warmth and lighter shades to incorporate a feminine feel. To truly enhance any palette, I also include secondary colors. With the holiday in mind, I would take shades of gold, silver, ivory, and white weave them throughout the palette. What may come as a surprise is how brilliantly black can be incorporated for a completely modern, opulent look!
- A wedding inspired by Valentine’s Day simply must include candles (and lots of them!). An aisle lined with red or pink pillar candles looks gorgeous and so elegant for ceremonies set in the evening because the light casts such a romantic glow. Plus, tablescapes are not complete without candles, such as votives for a more casual celebration or tall candelabras for a more elegant soiree, set on top of dupioni or velluto table linens and napkins.
- To enhance your ambiance, even more, consider adding pink uplights to cast a soft Valentine’s Day glow!
- Wedding flowers: Valentine’s day flowers are known for its beautiful bouquets and arrangements, and your wedding should be too! I envision designing bouquets filled with lush blooms, like red garden roses, anemones, ranunculus and offset by organic foliage and greens. For your tables, tall arrangements of antique green red hydrangea and crystals will forever be classic, but I also love modern designs where a variety of heights and sizes are represented through the vases.
While today’s post is in honor of Valentine’s Day, today’s design is not just limited to the holiday! Shades of red and pink, elegant candle-filled tables, and lush wedding flowers are always in vogue in any season!
