As the date for our next Indie Wed event approaches, it is hard not to think about all the couples who will be getting not only married, but those who will also be getting engaged. The holiday season is the most popular time of the year for engagements! After the holidays pass, we fall pretty quickly into Valentines Day. Did you know that February 14th is the single most popular date for weddings in the U.S.?
For anyone who is looking for an uber romantic wedding idea for V-day nuptials, the Empire State Building is hosting their 20th annual Valentine’s Day Contest. Not one but three lucky couples will win a wedding (or vow renewal) atop the Empire State Building. (Any Sleepless in Seattle or Affair to Remember fans out there?) Our friends with Red Envelope, along with Pro Flowers have been asked to be the lead designers for the three weddings.
In anticipation of the contest, Red Envelope approached Indie Wed to curate a collection of our favorite items from their wedding gifts collection. We happily obliged, picking items with the theme “Date Nite At Home” in mind.

personalized cutting board, stoneware bowl set,
8-piece beer tasting set, eco pillow – happily ever after
I could totally imagine a night home with your sweetie, cooking dinner together then curling up on the couch with some beer and popcorn for a late night movie. While these 5 items were chosen from their wedding collection, honestly there are so many interesting gift ideas throughout the whole site, many of which are created by independent designers in the U.S. (check out their rotating Meet the Makers section)
To enter the Empire State Building Valentine’s Day Contest, simply head over to their facebook page for more details. Entries must be submitted by December 5th.
Note: Indie Wed received no compensation of any kind for this post. The items selected were based on our own opinion of fun and useful gifts for a newly married couple.
