Glorified Cleveland Inspiration Board: St. Patrick's Day/Irish Wedding



Best Season for this theme: Spring or Fall

Cleveland Venues that would work well for this wedding style:
Legend Lake Golf Club
Hoyt Block Atrium at Blue Point
Club Hillbrook

Music:
Other Ideas:
  • Irish brides often carry a horseshoe for good luck, incorporate a porcelain one in a bouquet or a fabric one in a bracelet but make sure to have it turned up so its luck doesn't run out
  • Use different shades of green in your decor- emerald green, forest green, and mint green can be a beautiful combination
  • Use a custom seating board and place tables in the shape of Ireland
  • The chime of bells is thought to keep evil spirits away, restore harmony if the couple is fighting, and remind the couple of their wedding vows so instead of rice pass out a tiny bell to ring after the ceremony to celebrate with the couple
  • Specialty drinks: Guinness, Irish coffee served after dinner, or a cocktail that contains Bailey's Irish Cream, for example an Irish Ghost (Bailey's, Kahlua, Irish Mist herbal liquer, and cream) or an Irish Paddy (Bailey's, creme de cacao, and green creme de menthe)
  • Include English Lavender in the brides bouquet it symbolizes her love and devotion
  • Consider using shades of gold and brown as your accent color, using it in chargers, table easel's or reception stationary
  • Brainstorm with your caterer and serve traditional Irish style hor's d'oueveres
  • Placing decorative herbs in the brides hair stands for her fidelity to her new husband
  • Favors could include tiny chocolates in the shapes of shamrocks or claddaughs, personalized Guinness mugs or tiny loaves of Irish soda bread!
  • Use a custom made guest book where guests can write their "luck" to you
  • Incorporate the idea of lucky in love, possibly including the phrase "We are so lucky to be in love" in invitations or save the dates!
St. Patrick's Day is considered the luckiest wedding anniversary date in Ireland!
