Wedding Day Checklist: Planning a Valentine's Day Wedding

Birchwoods Banquet FacilityFor people who consider themselves true romantics, there may be no better day to get married than Valentine's Day.

Planning a wedding around Valentine's Day allows for a lot of creativity. All you need is imagination and a carefully constructed budget.

Here are some ideas and ways your perfect day can have a true Valentine's feel:

Create a red and white color scheme. This can start with the bridesmaid's dresses and groomsmen's outfits. Perhaps the bride can wear red shoes with her white gown.

The red and white scheme can also translate to other items in the wedding. How about red and white place settings? Have Valentine's Day candy hearts available at each table at the reception. Talk to your food provider about something sweet and creative, like red velvet cupcakes with white crème frosting. Think about those wedding invitations. Craft wedding invitations that are red and white and shaped like hearts.

Talk to your band or DJ about any Valentine's Day-themed music you want performed at the wedding. Maybe plan a dance just for the married couples in attendance. Contact your florist about creating Valentine's Day bouquets for the tables. Perhaps feature red, pink and white flowers.

Give your favors bags a touch of romance. The bag can be a Valentine color of red. Include things like red candies or mini-boxes of chocolates.

If you are thinking about planning a Valentine's Day wedding, plan in advance, as far in advance as possible. Valentine's Day is one of the busiest days of the year for restaurants and banquet facilities.
