It's the most popular day for guys to pop the question and it's just as popular to get married on or around Valentine's Day. Everyone is in the mood to celebrate and love and will be more than willing to celebrate while watching new love take flight. It's never tacky to get married around this holiday, it's romantic. What can be tacky is if your decor looks like it came from Hallmark.
Go easy on the hearts, use them for great photo ops to commemorate your day, but keep them to a minimum in your reception venue. Read your own vows off of heart shaped valentines for a sweet, unique and memorable twist. Heart shaped cakes belong in the 80's.
The more flowers, the better. Red roses are plentiful and gorgeous, even in a simple vase or bowl. Pinks are sweet and adds a whimsical feel to your day, while reds are romantic and passionate.
Red & White, Red, Pink & White, Pink & Red, Pink & White you can't go wrong with any combination and black, gold & silver for more depth and elegance.
