Valentine’s Day falls on February 14 every year, and if you’re anything like us, you like to plan for the holiday well in advance!

Whether you’re in your single era, are dating, engaged, or even married, celebrating Galentine’s or Valentine’s Day is a fun way to get together with friends, loved ones, and those closest to us. So why not look amazing while doing it? This Valentine’s Day we plan on looking our best ever, and that means showing up in a red or pink dress. On our same level? Continue below to get a look at some red and pink dresses that are perfect for Valentine’s Day, along with a little history lesson as to why we wear those specific colors!

Because It’s Symbolic!

Red and pink are colors we often associate with love. Red is symbolic of more of a romantic type of love, while pink represents friendships and family love. 

Because There’s Lots of History

Saint Valentine was a patron and Christian martyr that historians believe was present around A.D. 270. It is because of him that we celebrate Valentine’s Day today, and wear red likely because it was the color of choice for cardinals and popes.

Because It Just Looks Good

In today’s modern age, red and pink are thought of as traditional Valentine’s Day colors not only because of the symbolism and history they offer, but because they evoke romantic, loving feelings. So here a couple of Pink and Red Dresses that are perfect for Valentine’s Day:

For a truly showstopping moment that’s quintessentially Valentine’s Day, might we suggest our Hannah dress? The red hue is truly out of this world and is Cupid-approved, crafted with the highest quality satin with feminine draping. Whether you’re going out on the town with your girls or are celebrating Lover’s Day with your partner at a fancy dinner, this dress paired with some sky-high heels is sure to get you lots of love and affection.

There’s nothing we love more than a unique neckline, and our Elise dress is serving just that. With an asymmetric strap, draping sleeve, and even shawl detailing, it looks picture-perfect paired with a fully boned corset that will leave you looking snatched. Our favorite part, though, has to be the diagonal front split skirt, which gives off an air of sensuality that was made for the holiday.

Love the look of the Elise dress but prefer it in red? Lucky for you, we have it in a bold red hue, too! Designed in the same way as the above fuchsia pink option that features a shawl neckline, we can’t help but love anything in red, especially for Valentine’s Day. 

If you’re into more of a minimalist look when it comes to your evening attire, we think our Lilou dress is just what you need. Using silk satin that drapes across the body in a truly effortless vibe, this spaghetti strap dress in a stunning fuchsia pink color can be worn on Valentine’s Day and beyond. The double cross-over straps on the back give it some much-needed edge we adore, too. 

Going for a red look this Valentine’s Day? Our Lilou dress also comes in red! Designed in the same manner as the above pink dress, this hot number deserves a spot in your dress lineup.

Now that you know what to wear this Valentine’s Day, it’s time to start planning for your upcoming bridal activities! Take a look HERE for some Little White Dresses For Your Bachelorette Party, After-Party, and Beyond.
