Tips for the Reception
The wedding reception requires lots of details and takes the largest portion from the budget. A Valentine’s Day wedding reception should whisper romance from every nook and cranny of the venue. Tables, round or rectangular, donned in red or pink cloths with a white lace covering, look elegant and romantic. Use antique Valentine’s or new ones for place cards. Place candles of every shape and size all about the hall. Stay away from red cardboard hearts or cupids unless you’re seeking a silly Valentine theme. You want your wedding to reflect romance, not art project.
Consider placing a pair of love birds or white doves in an ornate cage adorned with a wreath of red flowers. Surround the table with large potted trees lit with white lights as a focal point. Use statues of cupids or cherubs to define the head table. Intertwine garlands of red, pink, and cream flowers about the cherubs with candles adding romantic lighting such as candles in hurricane vases.
Favor options for your romantic Valentine’s Day wedding are limitless. Hearts rule the day. Tie heart shaped cookie cutters together with a rich red ribbon and write a nice phrase or thank you on a small card and punch a hole into it. Tie the card into the ribbon. Cut place cards into hearts and tie them onto a box of chocolates.
