Undoubtedly one of the most fun celebrations, St Patrick Day is full of merriment, good humor and of course, luck. It should therefore come as no surprise that more and more couples are opting for this day to say ‘I Do.’ In fact, more superstitious couples believe that tying the knot on this special day is bound to bring them good luck through their entire lives, while solidifying their relationship. Green, of course, is the St Patrick Day color by excellence, so, it’s important to really infuse this hue as much as you can in your decoration theme. So, read on to learn how to very easily have a green-themed wedding on St Patrick’s Day.
Don’t forget that your bridesmaids are really going to stand out on this day, so, an extremely easy way to bring a St Patrick Day theme to mind is by dressing all of them in green frocks. Of course, it goes without saying that you can opt for several shades of green: from lime green to a darker forest-like shade, the choice is all yours but just remember to keep the dresses on the classy side. Knee or floor-length are the best ways to blend in with the overall St Patrick cheer. Alternatively, the groom can also don an elegant dark green tie with four-clover leaves printed on it.
Green St Patrick Day-related wedding favors are other touches that your guests are going to appreciate. A great example would be to go for candy favors such as sugared four-clover leaves, green cookies with leprechaun-shaped icing and other such treats. You don’t have to limit yourself to candy: don’t hesitate to think outside the box: handing each guest a four-clover pin and a small glass of green melon liqueur prior to the ceremony are touches that are always quite appreciated.
To really stay within the theme of the day, it’s best to hold your wedding outdoors. You may certainly have an indoors St Patrick Day wedding but then, it might lack that special atmosphere which this particular occasion seems to bring. Most importantly, a lush outdoors wedding will require very little decorations and accents since nearly everything will already be green. It’s recommended to favor venues such as gazebos in the middle of gardens, parks or forests. Several of these locations normally require a license so be sure to take care of all the paperwork beforehand. If you’re on a limited budget, don’t forget that your backyard- or a friend’s for that matter- will work just fine as long as there is plenty of green scenery around.
