A Saint Patrick’s Day Inspired Wedding for the Luckiest Bride
Whether honoring your Irish roots or looking to tie the knot on the luckiest day of the year, a Saint Patrick’s Day wedding is perfect for brides looking to add something green to their special day. Adding a hint of Irish charm to your bridal party, decorations, and menu can create an unforgettable holiday wedding.
The Dress Code:
Some Saint Patty’s Brides opt for a single shade of green bridesmaid’s dresses, but if you really want your wedding to shine try utilizing a current wedding trend: Sombre bridesmaids dresses all in green. Have your bridesmaids find dresses in shades that go from a deep evergreen to a light pistachio. Together the gowns will create a rainbow effect in the chosen Irish color, without being too overpowering.
Add a hint of Saint Patty’s Day pride (and luck) by making a bouquet of clovers, or working clovers into your already chosen arrangement. Tied with a lacey white ribbon, a clover bouquet can be subtle, tasteful, and bring your special day that extra burst of luck. This is also a great way to bring green to your decor. Arrange cascading clover center-pieces mixed with other flowers of lighter shades to create a beautiful field of clover effect to your reception or rehearsal dinner.
On The Menu:
Corned beef and cabbage is, admittedly, not the wedding food of choice for most brides. However, your guests can still enjoy the traditional dish by offering creative corned beef appetizers. Bite sized meat pies, wraps, and dozens of other recipes are available online. Take the opportunity to offer your guests a taste of the holiday as they mix, mingle, and celebrate your day.
Drink O’ the Irish:
An Irish drink menu is one of the most fun (and simple) ways to bring a taste of Saint Patty’s Day into your wedding. Serving classics like Guinness and Jameson is a given, but there are dozens of other fun Saint Patty’s day mixed drinks and shots that can get the party started. Toast to the future in style and spark some extra Saint Patty’s Day fun.
