Valentine's Day is just a few days away, and thankfully, this year's Lover's Day happens to be a Saturday.

Still haven't gotten the message? How about tying the knot on the most romantic day of the year?

Yes, it is possible and with a well planned agenda, you'll have a memorable ceremony.

Here are a few tips to guide in planning a successful Valentine's Day wedding:

  • Valentine’s Day-themed invitations: When choosing invitations, consider sending out Valentine’s Day-themed invites, and play up the theme of hearts, cupid and love. This will give your wedding guests a sense of what is to come on the big day.

  • Red roses: Red roses are often given on Valentine’s Day. Consider using red roses in bouquets and center pieces. If you feel the cost of real roses is too much for you, then artificial silk roses will do just fine.

  • Red or pink colour scheme: Red and pink are colours typically associated with Valentine’s Day. Consider using those two colours when choosing your accent colours. You could also tell your wedding guests to dress in white with a touch of red or pink for harmony of colours at the venue.

  • Valentine’s Day candy: If you’re having a dessert table at the reception, consider filling it with classic Valentine’s Day candy, like candy hearts and heart-shaped chocolates. Valentine's Day inspired cupcakes are also a good treat to include for cake lovers.

  • Love letters: Share the romance of the day with your guests. Distribute stationary for your guests to write a love letter to their significant other on Valentine’s Day. You can also invest in colourful sticky notes with romantic words inscribed on each page.
