Valentine’s Day Ideas 2009

Valentine’s Day 2009 is creeping up slowly! There are so many creative ways you can spend time together on Valentine’s Day without feeling like the day is full of consumerism. So we’ve come up with a list of five ideas to get your creative juices going.

These don’t have to be limited to Valentine’s Day, they’re great for a night out or wedding planning break too!

1. Buy delicious gelato and take a walk along the beach.

Trampoline Caramel Pear Sorbet

You can often find some of the Bridal Survival team lurking at the delicious 7 Apples Gelato in St Kilda who make an amazing blood orange gelato. We also love Trampoline Gelato (We love their lychee and lime!) and if we want something a little more indulgent- we can’t go past Cold Rock Ice Creamery with Picnic bars mixed in!

2. Check out the latest flick in style.

Visit your nearest Gold Class cinema and spend the night watching the latest blockbuster with a glass of champagne, chocolate and great company!

New flicks out in time for Valentine’s Day include Rachel Getting Married, Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Marley & Me and Revolutionary Road.

If you want to make it a little more different, try an outdoor cinema. Melbourne’s Moonlight Cinema will be showing Breakfast at Tiffany’s while Brisbane’s Moonlight Cinema will be showing Vicky Cristina Barcelona

3. Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge

Bridgeclimb are offering special Valentine’s Day packages including photos, a climb and a bottle of sparkling wine and a message in The Daily Telegraph. There’s even a package for those that may be carrying a special ring to the peak.

4. Have a picnic

Packing up your favourite gourmet delights and take a basket to an unexplored place for a peaceful Valentine’s celebration together. Choose delicious foods such as cheeses, dips. smoked salmon, crusty bread and fresh, ripe fruit like cherries. Think foods you can pick up quickly from your local deli for a fuss free affair.

5. Go wine tasting.

Domaine Chandon

There is nothing better than scouting out the best wineries for a taste of their home grown creations.  Spend a day sampling at your favourite wineries, try new ones and stop for lunch at a restaurant overlooking a vineyard. If you’re feeling like spending a little more- consider hiring a limousine for a wine tour. We love Wine Diva’s list of Australia’s wine region tour companies.

Bridal Survival is also offering Valentine’s Day giftwrap for any special treats you might like to gift to your loved one. Using glossy white paper, the gift wrap features pink ribbon and red ribbon with a red heart gift tag. It’s available now in our online store here.
