Green and glamorous: celebrate your Irish heritage with a St. Patrick’s Day-themed wedding day.
This week, on March 17th, we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
Traditionally, this is a cultural and religious day to honour the patron saint of Ireland. Whilst this remains at the heart of the day for many, St. Patrick’s Day has also become an international festival, celebrating the culture, dancing, heritage, and traditions that Ireland has to offer.
Whether you’re Irish yourself, have chosen to get married in Ireland, or have family traditions you’d like to honour, we’re excited to show you this week’s St. Patrick’s Day-themed Monday Moodboard. We’ll show you wedding décor, cakes and outfits all inspired by Irish culture and glittering green.
Firstly, we’re going green with your wedding day attire. Our first bride on the moodboard, from Bridalville, shows you how to look elegant and glamorous in a beautiful green column dress. If you’d like to make a nod to the St. Patrick’s colour with something a little more subtle, go for a beautiful bow or some statement shoes: we love these heels we spied on Christine Olson.
Of course, a St. Patrick’s Day theme is ideal for your wedding flowers, with natural foliage and greenery taking centre stage. We love how relaxed yet elegant this reception table looks (we spied it on Ruffled Blog). If you’d like to include the day’s traditional symbol, the lucky Irish clover, into your wedding, then your stationery is just the place to start. Whether a subtle symbol or a statement design, at least you’ll ensure your guests won’t forget the date!
Finally, we found so many beautiful edible treats that we just had to dedicate our final moodboard to cakes and sweets! From cute cupcakes to luxurious ombre styles (this one, spotted on The Knot, looks so elegant), there are many way to involve colour in your cake. If you’re not sure about a green exterior, take a tip from the Irish Wedding Journal and go for a colourful interior (that’ll also surprise your guests when you cut the cake). Pop across to our (brand new!) website and say hello to our cake crafters who can bring your ideas to life.
