Maybe we’re just in love with love, but there is something so heartwarming about a couple getting married on Valentine’s Day!

A Valentine’s Day wedding is not all about the sweets – but the sweet details. Fall in love with these 3 Valentine’s Day wedding trends that will make you want to plan your wedding around the most romantic day of the year. From the delicious Vera Wang pink wedding gown to a sweet red bow tie for the groom, there’s inspiration for every bride even if having a holiday wedding isn’t really your thing!

1. Ombre Accents – This trend is here to stay and we couldn’t be happier! We think ombre looks best in Valentine’s inspired colors like red, pink and purple. Whether you choose little accents in your wedding – like covering the aisle in ombre rose petals (how romantic!) or creating an ombre effect on your wedding cake – or prefer to use the trend as a complete wedding theme, you’ll love this modern twist to your Valentine’s Day inspired wedding.

We love when brides create this effect with their bridesmaids! We have to ask – is there anything that you cannot ombre? Get inspired with even more ombre wedding ideas.

2. Soft Pink Details – The color pink is feminine, flirty and oh so romantic! We cannot get enough of having a pink wedding and we just couldn’t keep all this pretty inspiration to ourselves. To pull off the perfect pink wedding, the key is to mix other pastels – like ivory or soft purple – to create a cheerful and simple wedding environment. And remember: you can never have too much pink at your wedding!

What is more romantic than a pretty-in-pink Vera Wang wedding gown? Join celebs like Jessica Biel, Reese Witherspoon and Anne Hathaway and skip the white dress, going for the blush-colored wedding gown trend instead, for your Valentine’s wedding.

3. Vintage Red Inspiration – We love the simplicity of vintage details that reminds us of good old-fashioned love and romance. Choose classy red lips on your wedding day or wear red shoes to accent your white wedding dress. We love the classic look of these coke bottles with a hint of red on the label, complete with a vintage crate for display. This vintage Valentine’s Day wedding trend makes for a great DIY project. Check out these crafty DIY Valentine’s Day ideas with a hint of old-fashioned fun. Or, complete your reception with a punch – cinnamon candy cider!

It’s the simple things – red roses, red hearts, red bow tie for the groom – that make vintage + Valentine’s Day a perfect wedding theme. After all, Valentine’s Day is an old tradition as is the tradition of a wedding!
