Wedding Invitation Ideas
Of course, red cardstock is essential for a Valentine’s Day wedding invitation.

Add two hearts on the cover of the invitation between your names to represent the special day!

A heart image can still be added so that it will look like a custom wedding invitation made for your Valentine’s Day wedding.
If you have a very small budget and are looking to make wedding invitations yourself, you can consider wedding invitation companies that offer do it yourself invitations supplies or packages.

In this case, you have the freedom to create your own valentine heart or cupid graphic to print. Look for companies that supply pocketfolders in pink or red cardstocks to show off your Valentine’s Day theme.
For your wedding invitation wording, you can include romantic phrases from Shakespeare, or other famous quotes from poets. Print these quotes at the top of all the text in a calligraphic font for added effect.
Valentine’s Day Wedding Decorations
The decor at the reception hall should match the colour and style of your wedding invitations. The most ideal flower to use are romantic red roses. Keep the lighting dim with lots of candles illuminating the wedding reception area to create an elegant atmosphere. The choice of fabrics should also be soft and diaphanous. For an added touch of customization, add red or pink bows tied around the chair of each guest. Instead of table numbers, you can have Valentine’s Day related names for each table such as “Love”, “Cupid”, “Hearts”.
