Valentine’s Day is well known for being the perfect day to propose. It’s also a popular day to get married and has become a popular theme for many February weddings. Often, people use decorations with hearts, small cupids and other fairly common icons of Valentine’s Day. But Valentine’s Day is more than just lacy hearts and roses. Couples who want to use the Valentine’s Day theme but avoid more commonly used decoration ideas simply need to consider the deeper meanings of the holiday.

A History of Love

Love letters between infamous couples can make a great jumping off point for a theme. The letters between couples such as Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning, Abelard and Heloise as well as Marie and Pierre Curie can be used to immerse guests in the rich history of love. Excerpts from these letters can be used in the invitations, place settings and even incorporated into the decoration. Love letters from the couple themselves or ones they have in their own family can also be used to tie the theme together.

Keeping Cupid Company

Valentine’s Day has made the Roman god Cupid a mainstream hero well into the 21st century. Brides and grooms who want to use this theme in their own wedding can give Cupid some company by incorporating other gods from Greek, Roman and other mythologies who also represent love. Potential companions can come from any culture’s mythology, including:

  • Venus – A companion to Cupid in Roman mythology, Venus is the goddess of love
  • Aphrodite – Greek goddess of love and beauty
  • Hera – Greek goddess of love
  • Rati – a Hindu goddess of passion
  • Aine – the Irish goddess of love
  • Cliodhna – a Celtic goddess of love and beauty

Fun with Favors

A Valentine’s Day theme means wedding favors can be fun and colorful. Drawing on childhood connections to Valentine’s Day such as candy hearts or brightly colored cards can get everyone in the mood not only to celebrate your wedding, but to reminiscence about their own love stories as well. Candy hearts with the couple’s name can be given to guests and heart shaped chocolates, decorated heart picture frames and small plush animals can all be customized as keepsakes for guests. Invitations, venue cards, menus and programs can be made in the style of Victorian valentine cards, scrolls for weddings with a mythology theme or feature the Valentine’s Day story connected to the couple.

Valentine’s Day themes for weddings can be a fun and creative way for couples to celebrate their own connection to the special date or simply as a way to immerse all the guests in a celebration of love. By tapping into the wider history of the holiday, couples can use infamous love stories, cultural icons and mythology and even simple childhood connections to the holiday as a way to celebrate their own special day and to encourage their guests to relive their own love stories as well.

A Different Kind of Beach Theme Wedding, Coral and Waves

Our client came to us and wanted something a little different but her wedding invitation had to include waves, coral shapes and a monogram for her and her future husband. She loved the look and feel of letterpress and wanted texture and a touch of gold foil. With that in mind, we inserted a design pattern of waves into a quatrefoil border which raised the center panel giving this set the desired textured. Now that the main invitation design was complete all we had to do to pull it all together is add some design elements to the other cards including coral inks. You have to admit everything looks better when it is letterpressed.

Recently we decided to play around with the way that we display our invitation designs on the web and thought that stop motion would be a fun experiment. There’s sound to this video so if you’re in an office make sure your speakers are turned down as to not alert your coworkers that your searching for the perfect wedding invitations.
