Valentineā€™s Day, February 14th, is already a special day when we celebrate those we love, so why not get married on or around this romantic holiday?

The story of Valentineā€™s Day dates back to the 3rd century when Saint Valentine ignored the emperorā€™s orders and married couples in secret so that the husbands would not have to go to war. And though these weddings were performed in secret, your Valentine-themed wedding can be a day of celebration and romance shared with all your friends and family!

Weā€™ve rounded up some of our favorite Valentineā€™s wedding inspirations filled with a color palette of blush and pinks to get your romantic wedding planning juices going!
