The classic colors for Valentine's Day are of course red, white and pink. Most people who get married on this romantic holiday include red in their décor and their flowers and many use heart accents. Heart shaped rhinestones in the bride's and the bridesmaid's bouquets as well as in the groom's and ushers boutonnieres are good examples of a classy way to integrate hearts in your wedding flowers. Other ways to include a heart theme at your wedding are: A heart shaped cake topper, a heart shaped balloon arch either at the reception hall entrance or behind the head table.

As for centerpieces, you could go with simple balloon bouquets composed of red and white balloons with heart prints on them or you may choose a floral centerpiece with heart shaped accents flowing out of the bouquets. A final touch to your centerpieces would be heart confetti on the guest tables, the head table and the cake table.

Flowers represent romance and therefore should be an integral part of your Valentine wedding. Obviously, the most popular romantic flower is the red rose. Symbolizing love, respect and admiration, the rose is the ideal flower to choose for your wedding bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres and centerpieces. If you decide to go with balloons for centerpieces, you can include rose petals as accents on the tables. As for the flower girl, she should be holding a basket filled with rose petals to scatter down the wedding aisle as she paves the way for the bride's grand entrance. (Check with your wedding venue to make sure they allow fresh petals, if not, they would probably be O.K. with silk petals.)

What if roses are not your thing? There are other flowers that would also do a wonderful job at setting the tone for your romantic valentine's day wedding. Carnations, orchids, lilies, daisies or tulips would all be acceptable substitutes for the rose if you are anti-rose. However, the fact remains that the ideal wedding flowers for a Valentine wedding would definitely include red roses, possibly combined with pink roses for a splash of light pink or a few white calla lilies to add even more class to your Valentine bouquet.
