Happy Valentines Day from The 530 Bride! Take this time to celebrate the ones you love, and enjoy all of the candy that comes along with this fun holiday! Cupid works his magic around this time of year, so we aren't suprised we have already seen several couples get engaged this week! While every couple celebrates differently, we believe you can show you care in simple ways and you don't have to go over the top. Whether you are a new couple or have been married for years consider some of the fun gift ideas and activities available in our area.

2. Suprise your sweetie with lunch or his/her favorite coffee
Stop by his/her work with some lunch or maybe a coffee, we bet you will get a smile from ear to ear! Guys: throw in a single stem flower to add a simple and romantic detail to her suprise.
3. Confess Your Love
If cards aren't your style and you have a smartphone or camera phone, confess your love in a short video. Be yourself, if you aren't comfortable in front of the camera consider making a slide show including some of your favorite photos together. Add some music as a finishing touch, and your sweetie is sure to keep it forever.

Dinner at home may not sound like Valentine's Day material, but turn off your cell phones, computer and tv so that you can catch up and focus on each other. Make the extra effort and find a new recipe to make together while enjoying some wine and great conversation.
5. Say Cheese
Valentines Day is a great excuse to get dressed up and snap some pictures, why not have a professional take them for you? Call around to some of the local photographers for a casual photoshoot to capture this romantic day. If you already have photos, choose your favorite and find a beautiful frame.
Last but not least, you can't go wrong with a beautiful bouquet of flowers!
