Happy Valentines Day my loves! I hope your day is filled with love, laughs and a ton of chocolate.

Speaking of love, I am in love with this vintage dress. I snatched it up as soon as I saw it over at The Vintage Valley. A red dress with poofy sleeves was perfect for a Valentines day lunch! Do you know what else goes perfectly with a Valentines day lunch? Adorable heart shaped desserts from a little bakery on Davie St.

So, In honor of this day of love, I decided to share some of the most loving world records ever.

Most couples married underwater - simultaneously
On 14 February 2001 (Valentine's Day), 34 couples from 22 countries simultaneously exchanged wedding vows 10 metres (32.8 ft) underwater near Kradan Island, Southern Thailand. This was organized by Trang Chamber of Commerce and Thai Airways International.

Most couples kissing simultaneously
The most couples kissing simultaneously was 6,980 (13,960 participants) at an event organized by Radio Kameleon in Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina on 1 September 2007.

Largest group hug
The largest group hug involved 6,623 participants who gathered in Chamizal Park in Juárez, Mexico on 25 September 2005.

Longest kiss
The record for the longest kiss was achieved by James Belshaw and Sophia Severin (both UK) who kissed continuously for 31 hr 30 min 30 sec, in an event organised by PMW Communications, at the Plaza Shopping Centre, London, UK, on 6-7 July 2005.

Most couples hugging simultaneously
The most couples hugging simultaneously is 1,451 at a World Children's Day charity event organised by McDonalds Restaurants, Taiwan at Taipei Arena, Taipei, Taiwan on 18 November 2007.

I'm kind of competitive so I'm going to try to organize the record for the most people hugging and kissing while getting married under water simultaneously. I'll assume all of you are in!
