A Pinch of Saint Patrick’s Day Green for Good Luck

By, March 15, 2013

This Sunday is a great day for the Irish! Though many Americans often use Saint Paddy’s Day as an excuse to drink green beer, look for rainbows, and dress like a leprechaun, the holiday actually has many special meanings and customs. For instance, in Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day is considered the luckiest day of the year to get married!

If you decide to tie the knot on (or around) March 17th, you may want to incorporate a few Irish good luck charms, and bring in the good fortune. You can set up horseshoes to play during the cocktail hour, incorporate Irish lace into your veil, dress the tables with accents of gold, or hire a bagpiper to play the processional music. We’ll call it “Shamrock Chic”.

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we’ve gathered photos from recent weddings that incorporate the color green in a major way! We hope you have a wonderful holiday, complete with good luck and a drop of green food coloring.



Day 1 of 12: Green wedding color inspiration

By, December 19, 2011

Today’s spotlight color is Green! Green is the color of nature, balance and life. Did you know that green has long been a symbol of fertility, and was once the preferred color choice for wedding gowns in the 15th-century?  Green also symbolizes learning, growth and harmony, and is often used in decorating for its calming effect. For example, guests waiting to appear on TV often wait in a “green room” to relax. Green is thought to relieve stress and help heal.

In recent weddings we’ve photographed, as you’ll see in the images below, green has been used prominently in bouquets, backdrops, bridesmaids’ dresses and more. 

We hope you find inspiration in our color of the day.  Be sure to check back tomorrow for our next featured color – Pink!
