We’ve supported you through the dress buying, the day-of prep, and more than likely have splattered your wedding photos all across our social media feed. While we love seeing your comments or hearing your name when new brides explain how they’ve heard of us, we miss you! So as an ode to our past brides and the romantic holiday quickly approaching, we figured why not suggest a few ideas for this Valentine’s Day to do with your favorite “I do”!
Idea for Wife: Bouquet of Your Wedding Flowers
A bouquet is a pretty traditional gift when it comes to Valentine’s Day. While red roses are beautiful, why not make it a little more interesting & a lot more meaningful by purchasing a bouquet that contains the exact flowers used on your wedding day? Were the tables full of Hydrangeas or was her bridal bouquet bursting with Ranunculus? If you can’t remember the exact names or colors of the flowers, dig up a picture from your big day and head to your nearest flower shop! The florist will likely be able to pin point the flowers you need to make this sentimental bouquet!
Idea for Husband: Recipes of Your Favorite Wedding Day Food
Some fiancés take part in every decision while others only jump in when the outcome is super important to them. From our experiences in the industry and the funny stories our brides share with us, food is a big must on most men’s lists! Did he have a particular dish he wouldn’t give up? Or was the groom’s cake flavor of utmost importance? Whatever his foodie favorite was, treat him to a night of his carefully curated cravings! Perhaps the venue had a kitchen and also serves to the public or you could snag a recipe and try whipping up the meal yourself! If the cake was the crucial component maybe try buying cupcakes from that bakery! Whip out your toasting glasses, best china, and light a candle or two. Tonight’s romantic dinner is served by yours truly!
Idea for Wife: Coordinates Necklace
You’ve likely seen them on Etsy or all over the Internet, but we feel like these sweet pieces of jewelry are so meaningful! Maybe you want to use the coordinates or the exact place you were married or think the reception venue location is the best coordinates to use. Whether the honeymoon or the first house you came home to holds a special place in your hearts, she can wear that love-filled moment on her wherever she goes! Bonus points is you include a sweet card explaining why this is your favorite place you’ve been with her!
Idea for Husband: Movie-Night In…. Featuring Your Wedding Video
Pop the popcorn and build the blanket fort, it’s time for a movie night in! Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be full of fancy meals & expensive gifts. If this is your first V-Day as a married couple maybe opt for something a little less fancy. You have the rest of your lives to do it up big-time! Surprise him by prepping with popcorn and his favorite movie-theater candies. He’ll likely enjoy the quality time and reminiscing together!
We hope these ideas helped prepare you for the holiday to come! We love each and every bride that has walked through our doors and are so grateful that this journey doesn’t end with the dress!
