When it comes to Valentine colour schemes, there are a number of routes you can go down. You may consider opting for rich cranberry red hues, but today we’re using a super sweet mixture of white and pink tones. A white and pink colour scheme works wonderfully when it comes to aisle style. Blush pink wedding gowns are still very much on-trend, and this soft shade really does look divine. However, you can always add a few touches of pretty pink to your wedding day look with Glitzy Secrets’ collection of Paradise Pink jewellery and hair accessories. A subtle shimmer here and there will look beautiful as part of your bridal look. For your bridesmaids, consider mixing and matching with various pink gowns to suit your girls. From barely-there-nude to dusty rose, you’ll find a shade to suit each and everyone of your ‘maids.
Ceremony backdrops are making a comeback for 2017 and there are lots of ways you can create a romantic ceremony space that will leave you feeling smitten. Why not create a floral backdrop using a mixture of pink and white blooms? Alternatively, you could ask your florist to create a heart-shaped floral installation. It’ll make saying ‘I Do’ even more special. Add an extra dash of prettiness to your aisle by adorning the ends of your pews with white wicker hearts – they also make fab chair covers for your reception.

Little wicker or white wooden hearts not only make gorgeous pew end decorations; they work perfectly for place settings. Hand-write or carve each guests’ name onto the hearts and offer them as wedding favours. Your guests will adore the personal touch and they’ll be able to treasure them as a keepsake after your big day. Keep the same theme throughout your wedding day and use a wooden heart as an alternative to a traditional guest book. Ask your guests to sign the heart and write a little message, then you can then use it as part of your home décor.
Incorporate Valentine-inspired details throughout your wedding venue, using pink and white napkins or table runners. Opt for white jugs or mason jars brimming with roses – the perfect nod towards your dreamy wedding theme. There are lots of lovely touches you can include on your wedding day that are subtle, yet sweet. White wooden signs will look beautiful displaying your favourite quotes about love – we suggest using delicate pink calligraphy for an extra dash of romance.
Using lots of shabby chic details will give your Valentine’s wedding theme a contemporary twist and it’s guaranteed to leave you and your guests feeling starry-eyed…
