Nothing says Hallmark romance like giant teddy bears, candy hearts, and every florist in town being completely sold out of roses! Valentine's Day is amazingly cheesy by itself, so it's no surprise some people can be hesitant about planning a wedding on baby Cupid's day. The same is true with every holiday, but the holiday of romance ironically seems to be the biggest culprit. However, If you play your cards right, a Valentine's wedding can be beautiful, fun, and oh so romantic.

Remember, just because you have a wedding on a holiday, doesn't mean you can't still make it personal to you. If you're having a Christmas wedding, no one expects you to walk down the aisle holding a small spruce tree in lieu of a bouquet. The same goes for Valentine's Day! This is your day to celebrate your love with that special person, and the date that it falls on is only one element of the whole picture. A holiday doesn't stand a chance of overshadowing your big day, but rather adds the extra touch of sweetness that you so deserve!
