St. Patrick’s Day Wedding Weekend

This weekend is St. Patrick’s Day!  The holiday with a nod to the luck of the Irish, we’ve put together a few subtle ideas for a St. Patrick’s Day wedding weekend!  Whether you simply go green or you infuse a Celtic wedding tradition or two (like this handfasting of crossing wrists and hands with ribbon to symbolize the start of marriage – also known as “tying the knot”), or incorporating a clover for luck, a St. Patrick’s Day wedding is surely to be filled with love, luck and laughter!

With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner here in the states, we got to thinking about all the beautiful Ireland destination weddings and those fabulously green and rich wedding details they inspire.  So today it’s all about the holiday!  If you’re hosting a St. Patrick’s Day wedding or one that infuses the theme into the decor and design, then take a gander at some of these gorgeous green goodies.

A green accented wedding dress?!  Who would have thought it would look so chic, but wow!  Or perhaps pair your palette with more white or grey tones to please his sense of style.  The beauty of a green color story is that he’s likely to feel a bit more comfortable with the idea than those pops of pink or purple you may have at one time considered.  A great way to compromise on style and design but create a visual story rich is culture and creativity!
