This weekend is going to be warm and sunny in the NYC-NJ area and it’s also St. Patrick’s Day Weekend! Whether you’re planning to pop the question, or get married, there are so many things to consider!
If you’re not engaged yet, consider using the Luck of the Irish to help you out. Guide your better half to a pot of gold where you can hide the ring. All it takes is a pot from Home Depot spray painted gold and voila! Pick up some shamrocks at their Garden Center to add into the pot and place the ring inside the greens! When she says yes, find a way to incorporate that pot into your wedding day…maybe even as a centerpiece for your sweetheart table!
Getting married on the holiday? No need to have a green explosion when there are way to celebrate…tastefully.
Wildflowers are perfect to use at your wedding and are very popular for Irish ceremonies. You could use them in something simple like your bouquet, or hang them from the chairs in baskets during the ceremony. If you want a more elegant look, consider using calla lillies!
Favors are something that every couple leaves until the end to figure out, but your guests will always talk about them. Why not give your guests some good luck with a rabbits foot? For the true Irish fans, consider giving small bottles of Irish whiskey and have the labels say your names and wedding date on them.
I’m a huge fan of mason jars, and I’d love to see an Irish wedding use some green ones to showcase their flowers. If you really want to get creative, buy enough to make a rainbow down the aisle!
If you’re able to bring in your own caterer, keep with Irish tradition and offer fare like corned beef and cabbage. That said, don’t just offer that as some people might not want it. Make sure you have a wide variety of food for your guests to choose from.
It’s all about luck and good fortune! However you choose to celebrate, whether with a proposal or a wedding, enjoy it! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
