Be Inspired: St. Patrick's Day Themed Wedding

Do you want to incorporate a theme into your wedding but have no idea how to fit it in? If you are having a March wedding, naturally a St. Patrick's Day theme will fit perfectly and you can execute the theme without your wedding looking cheesy. Selecting an appropriate color palate is the easiest way to get creative with your theme. Emerald is a very popular shade of green this year and would perfectly accent any venue or you could really make things pop with a more neon green like our #FavoredCouple Salai and Matt.

Another way to tie in the St. Patrick's Day Theme is by picking a signature cocktail. Guests can enjoy your delicious green or Irish inspired drink during Cocktail Hour or while dancing the night way at the Reception. Signature drinks are also a great way to save money on the bar. Offer guests beer, wine and a signature cocktail in lieu of a Full Bar to cut costs while still having a variety of drinks to chose from. has a great list of St. Patty's Day Drinks, but below are two of my favorites.
