Love is in the air, congratulations to all the newly engaged couples!
With so many soon to brides getting wedding planning fever, A Day Soiree is here to ease your mind! There's something to be said for planning a wedding on an already memorable date. I'd usually steer clear of hosting a Holiday Wedding, except that one special day that takes care the romance and would be the best day to celebrate your love!
No this doesn't have to be a day filled with cheesy baby cupids shooting arrows at your guest or little hearts favors stamped "Will You Be Mine?" But here's how and why hosting a Valentine's Day Wedding could be a great option for you and your true love...and your wallet!
No matter how forgetful you, your soon to be Mr., or your family and friends are, no one will ever forget that you got married on Valentine's Day! You and your Mr. were the couple that gathered everyone together on the National Day of Love to celebrate your special union! No one will ever forget that! With old or newly married couples, there will be love in the air and you sharing that with all of your loved ones will be a celebration to always remember!
Valentine's Day is in the wedding off-season. Planning a wedding during the cold winter months usually calls for discounted rates on venues and vendor services. With February typically being a slow month, many chose not to travel, this will make it easier for your guest to schedule and make it for your big day! Discounted rates and a venue full of love, you can't beat that!
Be the Valentine's Day Savior! With having both single and married friends and family, your wedding can be the Valentine's Day Extravaganza of the year! All of the married couples wouldn't have to worry about planning a special night out trying to find a spot at their nicest local restaurant, and end up waiting in a 2 hour line at Red Lobster just to get the bar seat; and your single friends and family members wouldn't feel bad about trying to snag a random V-Day date with a stranger on a dating app, or just feel bummed out that they didn't have any plans. Your wedding can save the day! Serve yummy treats, leave the bar open and let your single friends mingle! Oh!, and your reception dinner will definitely beat any overly priced dinner at a stuffy restaurant! - How typical!
Christmas is over - January is here, you know what that means right?
VALENTINE'S DAY DECORATIONS EVERYWHERE!
Not only are they everywhere, they're relatively cheap depending on what you're looking for! It'll be hard not to walk into any store and not get hit with V-Day Decor on every corner beginning the day after Christmas (Go in any Wal-Mart on December 26th - Thank me later!) And it will be the perfect time to start racking up!
Well, maybe not Red.....but having a Valentine's Day Wedding is your chance to step outside of the box, and into a different colored dress! Why not?! Yes, I know, everyone loves the traditional white wedding dress, and yes, I know, you don't want to shock your granny coming down the aisle in a fiery red gown! But with a themed wedding such as this, it's your time to change things up a little as far a gown colors! Why not a Pink dress? Stand out! After all, you have everyone there on Valentine's Day to celebrate your love, you might as well shock the crowd!
Hello to easy wedding favors! Remember what I mentioned about Wal-Mart on December 26th?....Yeah that! Finding favors to match your V-Day theme will be the easiest ever! Don't break the bank, be creative and make cute and budget-friendly favors: homemade cookies, chocolate samplers, message candy hearts, and stickers will make everyone happy! And who doesn't like a little box of chocolate?
I hope this has inspired all of you love bugs out there to host a Valentine's Day Wedding - With easy decor options, discounted rates, and a venue filled with love old and new, you will not go wrong! Happy Wedding Planning!
