The Ultimate Romantic
Are you the hopeless romantic that INSISTS on having your wedding day on/around Valentine’s Day? If so, YI is here to help. We have listed some tips and tricks to keep your special day on the classic end and away from the cheesy side:
For invites, go with calligraphy! Nothing says classic like the personal touch of calligraphy. Don’t know how? There are a ton of tips and tricks (ahem, calligraphy fonts) that your wedding planner can assist with. And don’t limit yourself to just the invitations. You can add the feel throughout your wedding to the table numbers, favor tags and even your place cards.
Not one for red shoes with your ensemble? These heart-shaped shoe stickers are a cute accent for your wedding day outfit…and can double as a slip-resistant aid! Fabric hearts can also be incorporated with the groomsmen OR just the groom. What better way to give him your heart?
A bouquet of classic roses can venture on cliché; we suggest incorporating burgundy dahlias and red and white ranunculus for a crush worthy alternative. Not a fan of reds and pinks? Add lavender sprigs. Red and Purple are a gorgeous color alternative and less expected.
Looking for something more subtle than bright red and heart décor at your reception? Adorn birdcages with floral blooms and lovebirds, another classic love symbol that will feel right at home at a Valentine’s Day inspired wedding. Or incorporate hearts into your theme in an eclectic way. These crafty centerpiece ideas are sure to make your guests swoon.
Let your guests know how much you appreciate them spending THEIR holiday with you! Place these adorable heart shaped lollipops at each place setting. To exude romance (and less cheese), wrap your menus in strips of lace or floral patterned fabric. OR you can send them home with heart adorned baked goodies to warm their heat and soul.
And for that small touch of whimsy, send your flower girl or ring barer down the aisle with a sling of heart arrows. You are sure to hear a chorus of awww’s with this one!
