Valentine's Day Inspired Wedding Ideas
February 2nd, 2016 Wedding Ideas, Tips and Inspiration
Hors D'oeurves: If you plan on having a cocktail hour during your wedding this is where you can get creative with your wedding hors d'oeuvres. Speak with your caterer and wedding coordinator to see if you can incorporate some heart shaped foods into your wedding day. Typical canapes and appetizers get transformed into the perfect Valentine's Day finger food. Your guests will fall in love with savory treats like heart shaped grilled cheese paired with tomato soup shot glasses. Love ravioli's? Seasonal winter favorites like Winter Squash stuff ravioli's can be cut into a heart shape and fried making it easy for guests to eat. Salmon on toast points can be re-imagined on heart shaped toast. These bite sized treats are delicious and trust us these savory treat won't be around for long.
Flowers: Say it with flowers and don't worry you can never have too many. Just because February is chilly doesn't mean there won't be any selection for flowers. Be sure to consult with your florist and ask for seasonal flowers and you will get beautiful results and an added bonus is your wallet will thank you. Some great flowers that are available in February are tulips, snap dragons, magnolia's, hydrangea's, and the increasingly popular ranunculus. Peony's have been on every brides must have list and are perfect for the summer bride, but the ranunculus is the perfect alternative for February and has that same lush petals of a peony and come in a variety of shades.
Dessert: Love sweets? Then it is time to indulge. From chocolate covered strawberries, mini red velvet cakes, to cupcakes with heart shaped decorations the options are endless. We love the idea of a dessert bar where guests can help themselves to heart shaped cookies, berry filled heart shaped hand pies, and lemon tarts. If we are talking about dessert then we can't forget about the cake. A naked red velvet cake would be perfect as your wedding day cake because minimal decorations are necessary and it is in the perfect color scheme of red and white. If traditional is more you style then a white butter cream of fondant cake accented with pink or red sugar flowers would be perfect. Don't forget about the cake topper! Heart shaped toppers would be the perfect touch to your cake.
