You might associate Valentine's Day with bright pink and shocking red as the colours of love, but don't worry - that doesn't mean your romantic valentines themed wedding has to be as gaudy! Try some alternative colour schemes to help your wedding pop!
Your colour scheme can be used for the seating and table decorations, name place cards, wedding favours, balloons, flowers, buttonholes, wedding arch, invitations and more!
If you really want to stand out and be unique on your valentines wedding, you could even swap out the traditional white wedding dress for a ravishing red valentine's day dress! Perhaps controversial, but a bold move you won't regret when your wedding pictures are unlike any of your friends.
Your marrying partner and wedding party could even wear red buttonholes to match the dress!
You didn't really think we'd give heart shaped accessories a miss, did you? The classic symbol of all things love - how could your valentines wedding be complete without heart shaped paraphernalia!
Some ideas of heart shaped wedding accessories include:
Everyone knows the cake has to be perfect, so what a great opportunity to bring your theme home! Here you can really use your own (or your baker's) creative license, but here are a few ideas for some valentines wedding cake inspiration!
What says sickly sweet valentines wedding more than, well, sweets!?
You could have a giant chocolate fountain, sure to be a hit with guests, and surround it with Valentines themed dippable snacks such as strawberries, heart shaped biscuits and pink marshmallows.

Combine this with sweet and fruity pink drinks to get your guests feeling bubbly and full of love!
Hopefully this has inspired you to get planning your beautifully romantic Valentines themed wedding!
