Our own Valentines Day traditions –
“My husband and I have started a Valentine’s Day tradition where we give each other experiences instead of gifts. Last Valentine’s Day, we planned our amazing trip to Hawaii and this year we are planning a road trip from Texas to California! It has become such a fun tradition for us and we’re always excited to plan our next adventure!” – Becky’s Brides Owner, Becky Baker

“My fiancé and I started a tradition a couple of years ago that we were going to boycott going out to a fancy restaurant for Valentine’s Day. We’re both self-proclaimed pizza connoisseurs so we decided our Valentine’s date night would consist of our favorite pizza, sweatpants and t-shirts and a good Redbox movie! I look forward to it every year!” – Becky’s Brides Planner, Taylor Tryon
