Valentine Red Bridal Dos & Don’ts.
1. Add something RED to your ensemble. A red garter. A fantastic matte red lipstick. A classic bouquet of red roses.
2. Make a fabulous Valentine’s Day play list.
Think classics like My Funny Valentine. Frank Sinatra. Ella Fitzgerald. Everytime your guests listen they’ll remember the most romantic way they ever spent Valentine’s Day.
3. Add a Valentine’s Day candy bar. It is the ultimate day to indulge in candy. Heart shaped red velvet mini cakes. Truffles. Red Jelly Beans. All in beautiful crystal displays. Adding a bit of whimsy to this extra romantic day is key.
4. Have your bridesmaids wear pink or red dresses. A gorgeous burgundy satin or a pale oyster taffeta are tasteful for their ensembles.
5. Set the mood for your Valentine’s Day Wedding. Opt for old Hollywood Glamour with candles. Deep romantic tones. And an elegant lighting scheme. You definitely want to make the day romantic for everyone.
1. Nobody wants to see red undergarments. Do not wear them.
2. Keep your decorations tasteful and elegant.
3. It is not a prom. Do not buy heart shaped balloons.
4. Red stains on a white dress are no bueno! Do not drink too much red wine.
5. Do not forget that it is your wedding day first and foremost. Have fun.
