In honor of St. Patrick’s Day this weekend, we thought we’d share a few Irish wedding traditions. Green is always associated with the luckiest day of the year, but it used to be considered unlucky for a wedding as it might entice malicious fairies and leprechauns. However, it was lucky for a bride if her groom went through with the ceremony. Who knew that Irish men were known for getting cold feet? Guests would have to lock the church doors just in case. With modern modifications, you can incorporate the luck of the Irish with these three ideas:
Be superstitious like the Irish and spread three-leafed good luck charms at each place setting.
Become inspired by upcoming colder weather and the holiday season for your winter bouquet! Seasonal winter flowers include: orchids, roses, evergreens, holly berries, lilies and anemone. Most winter bouquets are full of red, green, black and white, but don’t feel restricted to these colors. By adding vibrant pops of color or subtle pastels, your bouquet will turn into a statement piece. For more inspiration, check out our wonderful winter bouquets photo gallery.
In spirit of the Cinco de Mayo Holiday, I’m very excited to share part one of this fun style shoot. Thanks to Melissa McCrotty Photography for sharing, and for all of the talented vendors who worked together to bring this inspiration together. Tomorrow is part two of the style shoot, say make sure to check back!
This idea is so fun! And it doesn’t have to just be for those of you waiting to ask the “will you marry me” question. This is a fun idea if you and your fiance want to do a photo shoot, post engagement, so you have those pictures forever. And it is Valentine’s Day, so even just inspiration for a romantic picnic in the park (if you’re in a warm part of the world), or a picnic on the floor of your living room! Either way, we loved this and had to share! Happy Day of Love Everyone!
