The Perfect St Patrick’s Day Wedding
14th March 2018
St Patrick’s Day is just a few days away so no doubt our news feeds will be flush with green, white and orange. This got us thinking about a St Paddy’s Day themed wedding! Without further ado, let’s get into how to bring that Irish flavour to your wedding day.
The perfect tone of emerald looks amazing on most skin tones and can create a bold look like in the picture above. However, if it’s a bit too strong for you, consider putting your maids in different shades of green to create a lighter, eye-catching look.
Leafy, Elegant Bouquets
A St Patrick’s Day wedding needn’t be over the top and floristry is one of the areas where you can reign it in. keep your bouquets leafy with plenty of flecks of white for a universally elegant aesthetic.
We love these cupcakes for their simplicity as well as injection of fun into the day. You can go really kitsch with shamrock cookies or keep it simpler as in the above. Your favours are where you can really show your personalities!
A simple exterior can really shine with this kind of wedding then you can experiment with a brightly coloured filling! Perhaps you could make an Irish flag in the flesh of the cake which will really wow guests when they get their slice!
Wedding Dress Inspiration
You could keep things simple and stick to an ivory dress and bring the colour through your bouquet and bridesmaids. Alternatively, why not switch things around and embrace the ’emerald jewelled hues’ yourself? Keep all of your other accessories simple and add in neutral colours and splashes of copper through your hand-tied bouquet. Gorgeous!
Tables and more…
There are no rules to say you have to include a shamrock in your stationery and your tablescapes, (however, we do like the addition on the Guinness’ below!) so keep bang on trend by adding greenery in the form of succulents and change the vibrant orange to coppers and peaches.
A Shot of Guinness
How cute are these little shots of Guinness?! It’s a great way to bring in the beer without offering a full pint it is quite an acquired taste! If the drink is not for you, Guinness fudge or chocolates make the perfect wedding favour.
A Ceilidh band is so fun at a wedding as the music gets everyone involved and dancing. Very traditional but if you’re into it, it’s a great addition to your St Patrick’s Day wedding!
That’s it for now! 8 elements to create an elegant but fun St Paddy’s Day wedding! What do you think?
