It’s the most wonderful time of the year – Valentine’s Day, that is! Let’s start the celebration a little early with a heavy dose of romantic wedding inspiration perfect for the Washington DC area (or just about any area!) with sweet treat ideas from Fête Studio and Rachel May Photography. We know that there might be some of you out there who are getting married around this beloved holiday. (After all, Valentine’s Day this year is a Friday and Valentine’s Day in 2015 is a Saturday!)
But, what if you want to celebrate the season at your wedding and move beyond the candy hearts and boxes of chocolates?! Well, these creative and stylish ladies glammed up the typical Valentine’s Day treats and created a fabulous spread full of wedding ideas, including signature cocktails, meringues, cakelets, truffles and marshmallows! And, be sure to come back tomorrow because they will blow it out of the park with even more Valentine’s Day wedding inspiration!
From Wendy at Fête Studio: We chose to go the direction of romantic and sweet for this Valentine’s Day wedding inspiration. Keeping with that theme, we chose to go with lush flowers playing with the color palette and brought in a romantic feel. There were lots of details through out to make the design sweet and fun!
More from Wendy: Having a red linen just on the dessert table or an accent table is a great way to bring in the red without looking like a sea of red. You can then balance out the majority of your wedding reception tables with a soft accent color. In this wedding inspiration, we chose mint green for the reception tables to accent the pop of red for the dessert table.
Wow and yum! I hope that you are as inspired as we are with this post full of Valentine’s Day wedding ideas for your dessert bar! As we said, don’t forget to come back tomorrow for more Valentine’s inspired wedding ideas. A special thank you to all of the Washington, DC area wedding vendors who contributed to this inspiration:
