Valentine’s Day is the poet’s holiday.
Ted Koosner – Poet
If you are planning to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Boca Raton and South Florida there are many things to do and enjoy from free and cheap to super pricey! I have put together some ideas for you no matter what your budget including gift guides to help you plan something special to celebrate the 2019 season of “love!”
Thinking of Getting Married
Sharon R. Bock, Esq., the Clerk & Comptroller for Palm Beach County, is once again teaming up with the National Croquet Center in West Palm Beach and other community partners to give 40 loving couples a Valentine’s Day ceremony to remember. Registration is now open .
Hiring a Wedding Photographer
Halle Alessia of Halle Alessia Photography suggests you research different photo styles to see what suits your wedding vibe. Are you boho or classic? Do you want a casual look or is elegance your main objective. Hit Pinterest and Instagram for inspiration and don’t be afraid to ask questions. www.hallealessia.com
Choose a Wedding Planner
Kelly McWilliams wedding planner extraordinaire says hire your floral designer early! If you are doing a Valentines Day wedding pink and red flowers are in high demand and skyrocket in price so place your order sooner than later.
PS… it appears, via my unscientific Facebook poll, that the beach is still a popular South Florida wedding choice to exchange vows or get engaged.
If Valentine’s Day includes a shout out to champagne toasts and rose all day then check out one our favorite gifts to give and get! A wine basket never disappoints! Toss in some chocolates and beautiful fruit and who needs to go out for dinner!
Eat in and enjoy some our South Florida seafood! My hubs and I love to make a double box of Kraft Dinner, split a couple of stone crab claws or a Florida lobster, watch a movie and just spend some time together. He cooks and I clean! Now that is romance!
If you need some great yet inexpensive or even free ideas of things to do on Valentine’s Day (or any day frankly) buzz by Living on the Cheap and 14 Creative and Cheap Valentines Dates for some major inspiration!
Head To The Florida Keys
You can certainly do a stay-cation or day-cation to Miami or up to Palm Beach or even a quick trip to Key Largo (it is under 2 hours from Boca by the way). Or you can do one right here in #SoooBoca…sooo many great choices to choose in regard to hotels and things to do!
Unique Suggestions for You!
