We asked Ling Warlow, of Merseyside's Dragonfly Couture Stationery how to capture the spirit of Valentine's Day without getting carried away with clichés.
We’re getting married on Valentine’s Day. How can we capture the spirit of the day in our invitations without going overboard on heart motifs?
Valentine’s Day is the ultimate romantic wedding date – you’ll never forget your anniversary! So, if you’ve chosen this date to say “I do,” you need to embrace it!
Why not choose a simple, elegant heart motif that can be echoed throughout your stationery, and put a ban on hearts anywhere else, or simply avoid red or pink. You could also plump for the simplicity of a single red rose or the cheeky appearance of cupid on your seating plan echoed in your cake topper.
The best way of all is to stay true to yourselves. Celebrate each other and the people you love. Your wedding day, regardless of the date it falls on, is a celebration of your love.
