Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! (Yes, as a wedding blogger I can officially say that to everyone I know and I don’t think I’ll be in trouble – I love you all.) I’ve jumped very firmly from “I don’t do Valentines” into embracing the occasion with everything I’ve got, and can’t wait for a lovely romantic afternoon and evening. (But you’re not invited… 😉

Happy Valentine’s Day!

So what are your plans? Are you going out? Staying in? Celebrating your last Valentine’s Day before you get married? Or maybe you’re a first-time wedding blog visitor (because he proposed over breakfast – in which case congratulations!) – I hope you have the loveliest Valentine’s Day no matter what you’re doing.

There are always newspaper features and stories with a bit of an anti-Valentines focus on the 14th of February – fair enough: it’s not the best day if you’re single. I also understand the argument that it’s an excuse for Hallmark and the likes of Clintons to sell cards. Bah humbug…

I see Valentine’s Day as the perfect excuse to be romantic, to celebrate being in love, to get dressed up and go for a candlelit dinner or snuggle up with a slushy movie…

Yeah, it’s a big celebration where the shops go pink and fill up with hearts from boxing day onwards. But you know what – this year I love it. I’ll be making the most of my Valentine’s Day and I hope you have a great one too!
