Our Favorite Romantic Movies

myflorist_movie
Valentine’s Day is full of all things romantic, including romantic movies.  There are a lot of different movies that fall into this category, but here are some of our absolute favorites.  Are they your favorites, too?

Breakfast at Tiffany’s.  This classic Audrey Hepburn film has been a favorite of romantics for years.  It still tops lists of favorite romantic films even today, decades after its release.

An Affair to Remember stars the handsome, dashing Cary Grant.  He whisks away a beautiful singer played by Deborah Kerr for a romantic cruise from Europe to New York, even though they’re both engaged to others.

Casablanca.  Even if you’ve never seen this classic movie, you’ll recognize a number of quotes from it.  Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman are the quintessential romantic couple.

Dirty Dancing.  “Nobody puts Baby in the corner!”  This romantic musical starring the late Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey will forever be known for its amazing music and dance sequences, especially the finale choreographed to the song “The Time of My Life.”

Emma.  Gwyneth Paltrow stars in this adaption of Jane Austen’s novel.  Emma’s well-meaning attempts at match-making lead to some humorous misunderstandings but end with Emma herself finding love.

These five romantic movies are classics.  What other romantic movies should be on this list?

Planning the Perfect Romantic Evening

romantic dateValentine’s Day is almost here.  Do you have your romantic weekend planned?  If not, you need to get on it—things book up and sell out pretty quickly.  Some of the most in-demand, romantic restaurants may already be full.  If you want to have an amazing Valentine’s Day, you’ve got to have a plan so you don’t miss out on a restaurant, activity, or that special gift you’ve been meaning to buy but just haven’t yet.  Here are a few tips for planning that perfect romantic evening so nothing goes wrong.

Make your reservations as early as possible.  If you don’t, you may have to go with your third or fourth choices because things will be sold out.

Think through the entire evening.  If you’re going to a fancy restaurant, make sure what you’re doing after dinner doesn’t require different clothing.

When are you planning on giving her gifts or flowers?  It can be romantic to do it at dinner, but is she then going to have to carry things around with her for the rest of the evening?  That can be awkward.

Don’t forget to factor in extra driving time on Valentine’s Day.  There’s likely to be more traffic, and finding parking can be a problem.  Be ready to pay for parking in some areas.

If you plan on returning to your place at the close of the evening, make sure you’ve cleaned up.
