Happy Valentine's Day from the Outer Banks Wedding Association
It's February 14th—Valentine's Day—the one day specifically designated to the celebration of love and affection (other than your impending wedding day, of course!). It's no wonder it's an extremely popular day for engagements. Nearly six million people are likely to get engaged on Valentine's Day!

In 18th-century England, Valentine's Day evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, what has now become a symbol of love.

The tradition of a bride carrying a bouquet has evolved over the eras. From signifying new beginnings and hope, to strong smelling herbs and flowers that would ward off evil spirits, to the more modern bridal bouquet made up of flowers representing different sentiments. Brides now select flowers for the beauty of their colors and shape. We love the element this ads to a wedding day, and how it is a way to showcase the brides personal style and taste.

Of course we love the symbolism of flowers, but we also really adore YOUR love between one another. So a romantic day like Valentine's Day has us all gushy for sweet moments from Outer Banks weddings.

We even love to see your happy dog friends! 9 million people will buy their pet a gift on Valentine's Day, so there's no questioning why many couples incorporate their furry companions into their wedding day.
