February weddings have a special charm no matter what the weather is where you live. You could have a sparkling, snowy ceremony or a warm beachside reception, but either way, February is the month many of us associate with love, and the perfect time for a wedding.
Just like every other month, February has a lot of symbols and is associated with beautiful gemstones like amethyst or flowers like violets. Whether you choose to use these in your wedding or not, it’s always interesting to learn about the month that will be meaningful to you from your wedding day on to forever!
In Scandinavian countries, February is known as the “month of the pearl.” This is taken to mean that you and your husband will have a rare and valuable love throughout all your days. Marry in the first half of this month, between February 1st and 15th, and it’s said that your future children are sure to be devoted and caring toward you. Tie the knot in the last half and you will supposedly have good luck throughout your lives together.
February is a unique month because of the possibility of a leap year. A wedding on February 29th is considered especially lucky, along with nuptials scheduled for February 6th or 18th.
The stone of February is amethyst – as you’ll know if you have a friend or family member with a birthday in this month. Wear it on your wedding day and it’s said to bring you clarity, tranquility, and wisdom, along with helping you leave the past behind and embrace your new future.
If you’re looking for bloom inspiration, the flower of February is the violet. The symbols say when using violets in your bouquets or decorations, you’ll be known for your sympathetic and patient nature, which will carry with you into your marriage.
