Top Five Valentine's Day Tips For Engaged Couples

With the season of love in full swing, all of the buzz is around how to make this Valentine’s Day special. As newlyweds, you want this day to be equally as memorable as it is romantic. If you want to look beyond the heart shaped boxes of chocolate, these tips are sure to help you exceed all measures of romance… Of course, a little chocolate still never hurt 😉

Check out these top FIVE tips on how to make your Fiance V-Day as special as your blossoming relationship:

1. Pack Your Bags

Nothing screams romance like breakfast in bed with the love of your life on a beautiful Valentine’s Day morning. We’re in luck with the holiday falling on a weekend this year so nothing is stopping you from sneaking away with your sweetheart for a love infused weekend getaway. Maybe something domestic like Maine?

2. Rub Out All That Tension

Everyone loves a little downtime to unwind and relax. Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to hit your favorite spa with your other half and just unwind. If you’re looking to spice things up, perhaps try giving one another massages at home. Light some candles, stay in and let Cupid do the work.

3. Put A Ring Name On It

You’ve already put a ring on it. If you’re looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your special soon-to-be, look in to something personalized. Whether it be catered to solely them with their name or initial or you both as a couple, this is a gift that could send Cupid’s arrow straight through the heart. Some examples are jewelry (wink, wink), video/photo albums, and even ties or cuff links for him.

4. The Fastest Way To The Heart Is Through The Stomach

Along with Valentine’s Day being the day of love, it is also a day of good food. Take this opportunity to make reservations at that new restaurant in town that everybody is raving about. If you’re looking for something more low key, try making dinner together at home. But don’t forget to leave plenty of room for dessert!

5. Something Sexy

This is for the ladies. If you’re trying to keep the soon-to-be newlywed romance at its peak, a great idea for a Valentine’s Gift is… you! Think about doing a romantic boudoir photo shoot and giving the end result to your fiance. Sexy and classic.

Wedding Salon Kicks Off the New Year with a Sparkle

Hundreds of engaged couples gathered in Beverly Hills and New York City in January to plan their upcoming destination weddings and honeymoons at Wedding Salon. Guests were stunned by the fashion forward, modern and unique wedding displays, along with some significant ways to plan domestic, traditional and exotic destinations for their nuptials.


1. Culturally-inspired accessories and clothing:

Bridal gowns and accessories alike with cultural inspiration were represented at both showcases. Mirage by Samar pinpointed South Asian culture, drawing people in with gowns that captured stunning creative impulse. Accessories brand Ellen Hunter NYC wowed the couples with visually-intriguing accessories and head-pieces.

2. Pre-travel beauty enhancements:

Couples were excited to see options to enhance their outer beauty. Yes for the men too! Spray tanning, by Vita Liberata, made the pairs feel comfortable adding a little color to their natural glow. For the ladies in New York, Lancôme at Bergdorf Goodman celebrated nudes and natural makeup trends at their trial station and O2living featured amazing juice cleanses to keep healthy.

3. Traditional and Domestic Locations:

Travel resources were abundant in both showcases with extravagant tourism boards such as Mexico Tourism Board, Aspen CVB, Cape Cod CVB & many more. Couples were provided with displays so vibrant and lively they could picture their stress-free planning and relaxation ahead. Luxury resorts like Fiesta Americana, Shoals Club on Bald Head Island, and Ritz-Carlton Florida beautifully highlighted their abundance of options.

4. Exotic Destinations:

In addition to the locations couples love and adore, to their own surprise, they found themselves also drawn to places that are attractively out of the ordinary. Exotic destinations represented by Zulu Nyala South Africa, Three Tomatoes Italy and Aruba Tourism Authority, could be exactly what couples are looking for and all that needs to be done is a little exploration!

5. Shred for the Wed:

With many destination weddings including swimwear and fewer clothes, couples are eager to discover ways they can “shred for the wed”. Pure Barre and Bar Method put future brides and grooms in awe, with the most exciting ways to get their bodies into shape.
