five St. Patrick's Day inspired wedding ideas!

St. Patrick's Day is celebrated around the world and is a holiday most individuals would list as a favorite due to its festive colors and celebratory nature. Why not add a little "luck o' the Irish" to your wedding day?

Accessories

Adding touches of green, such as shades of deep emerald mixed with gold, bring a royal air to your event. The earrings below would be perfect for any bride, even if your wedding color scheme is something other than green!

Bridesmaid Dresses

If you would truly like to cast green as a main player in your wedding decor, emerald green bridesmaid dresses would flatter all of your leading ladies' coloring. The white bouquets make the rich color pop and will also allow your beautiful wedding gown to be the center of attention!

Signature Cocktail

Who doesn't love a little bubbly? This champagne cocktail splashed with Midori melon liqueur is a refreshing touch to any wedding. Add a sugar rim and a honeydew melon ball as a garnish and your guests will be drinking them up!

Sweet Eats

Stay Gold

If you're not into the greens, bring gold into the mix instead. Gold is a timeless color that brings out the richness of any wedding color palette. Gold charger plates, gold napkin rings, and gold spray onto your centerpieces will definitely add a wow factor to your decor. The most impressive gold touch I have come across are gold cakes. They are still traditional, yet so different than the basic white wedding cake when you add glitter and a monogram topper!

Bonus Tip!

One of the most frequent songs brides choose to walk down the aisle to is "Somewhere over the Rainbow" by Iz. Not only is this a beautiful rendition played on the ukelele... at the end of every 'rainbow' is a pot of gold!
