Are you looking for wedding venues in East Texas for your fairytale spring wedding? Have you considered a fairytale winter wedding – one that happens on Valentine’s Day? There really is no other day of the year that’s so linked to romance than Valentine’s Day and there’s no other day of the year that’s better for an impossible-to-forget anniversary than February 14th. Once you make the decision to have your wedding on Valentine’s Day, the possibilities for creating the perfect romantic setting for your special day are almost endless.
♥ Stay with traditional Valentine’s colors and carry a bouquet full of pink, white and red peonies, roses, ranunculus and sweet peas. Use the same color palette for the flowers in your groom’s boutonnière and for the flowers you use to decorate your seating area and arbor.
♥ Your decor can also include Valentine’s pink, red and white; but you can add some visual interest with complementary touches of gray, coral, silver and even black. Crystal candleholders on shimmery table linens coupled with pink-hued ambient lighting will add a warm, romantic glow to your reception area and dance floor.
♥ Instead of a guest book set out pink writing paper and pencils or vintage children’s Valentine’s cards and ask guests to write “love letters” to, or about, you and your groom or about their own wedding day experiences.
♥ Make sure the playlist for your reception is full of romantic songs that will have everyone dancing cheek-to-cheek. Ask your guests to send some song ideas to you along with their RSVPs so that you can have at least a few songs playing at your reception that will honor your guests and show them how much they mean to you.
♥ Pile on the sweets. In addition to a heart-covered wedding cake filled with fresh strawberries, make sure your baker supplies your wedding guests with cupcakes with pink frosting, individual flourless cakes drizzled with raspberry sauce, and chocolate-dipped fruit.
♥ Dress the part for an old-fashioned, romantic wedding. Choose a dress and veil with lots of lace or find a dress that reminds you of 1950s movie star dresses with fitted, sleeveless bodices and full skirts. Consider a color other than icy white; try on a light pink dress or an ivory dress with a pale, pink sash. Choose varying shades of pink for your bridesmaids’ dresses and ask your groom to wear a pink tie.
