Valentine’s Day – the perfect excuse for romance!

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!

  • Make it personal. If you want it, do it, if you don't you shouldnt feel you have to. Have fun, it's your wedding so talk to each other about what you want, your biggest dreams and also your biggest fears for the day. Build your wedding together and when the day comes relax. Nothing will be 100% what you planned but it won't matter because all your favourite people are in one place and you will be married and that's all that matters. ~ Michelle & Gavin Photo @linusmoran Venue @axnoller Bridesmaids @mixbridalboutique Entertainment @alist_band #weddingblog #bride #wedding #weddingday #weddings #picofday #picoftheday #bride #instamoment #realmoment #weddinginspiration #weddingplanner #weddingseason #weddingplanning#bridal #gettingmarried #futuremrs #justengaged #love #dress#instabride #isaidyes
