So what are your plans for the feast of Saint Valentine?
I’d always thought that Valentine’s Day was too commercial, with its overpriced novelty gifts and 3 course set menus with inflated prices. That was when I was single without a secret admirer in sight.
Do you remember your first crush?
I suppose it’s like any other “special” day when you’re single – it’s no fun and, quite frankly – it sits on the verge of being downright depressing. And I for one was not amused by the anonymous card left in my in-tray (and that of every other single woman) by the department lothario…after all, I was single, not desperate!
How romantic will you be on Valentine’s Day?
Whether you’re dating, engaged or married, do you use Valentine’s Day as an additional opportunity to spoil your loved one and show them they are special to you? It doesn’t need to be a big gesture – I’d be perfectly happy with a romantic card and my favourite chocolates. Hint hint. So whether you prefer a pizza delivered or a lovingly home cooked meal, the essence of Valentine’s Day is the romance… and of course, the excuse to do a bit of extra wooing!
Is that the sound of Valentine’s wedding bells…?
If you’re looking to add that extra romance into Valentine’s Day and are planning to get married on February 14th, I’ve put together a Pinterest board with some perfect ideas on how to create a Valentines themed wedding – why not see the whole board here? In the meantime, here are some ideas to get you started:
- Pick some pretty pink and red blooms and you’re half way there. Whether you like vintage pink, pink ombre or deep red – flowers = romance and the bare bones of any beautiful wedding theme.
- Choose some key words with romantic meaning and use these in your stationery and for those little decorative details. It’s all in the detail. They also make great photo props for your official photos and if you have a photo booth.
