Ideas for A St. Patrick's Day Wedding Party


Since St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, I thought that I’d jump start things for those planning a party with some truly unique invitations and more.

INVITATIONS

For a person planning a fun-filled affair with both genders, these cute beer-shaped invitations are great for a couple planning an engagement party on St Patrick’s Day. Try these from announcingit.com:




CAKE

For an engagement party cake for the couple, you can buy a mold in the shape of a shamrock and decorate it with green sugar crystals, while using a simple buttercream frosting. Try Confectionary House:



ATTIRE

In the area of fashion, you don’t have to dress like a leprechaun because there are dozens of beautiful dresses in a lovely shade of green. This gorgeous bridesmaid dress from Jenny Yoo in a pretty sage green color is so elegant yet it doesn’t look ostentatious at all. From Flutter Boutique:



FLOWERS

Go with classic calla lilies or vanilla cream roses for a stylish bouquet or centerpiece. Visit Martha Stewart for some really great examples!


GUEST FAVORS
Ah, what to take home? Use a dainty organza bag decorated with embroidery, and fill it with some goodies! You could give any of the following items or all of them if you want to be extra generous on this day:

Green M&M’s® - my personal favorite



Gold Jordan almonds
Gold or green foil wrapped chocolates in the shape of coins or shamrocks
Miniature chocolate leprechauns
Shamrock shaped cookies

I learned so much from your post. I didn't know people had weddings on St. Patrick's Day but it's something to consider isn't it! What a great idea!

Thank u for the great article for sure it will be of help to all the women who wanted to become a bride and to all men who wished to become a groom too.

I'm planning a shamrock/Irish themed wedding for the weekend before St. Patrick's Day. I'm using shades of pale green and pink accents. For favors, I'm giving potted shamrock plants with irish well wishes scrolled on paper placed in the pots. Just some ideas to share!

If you go through the business side of the custom M&Ms site, you can have them print your wedding monogram or logo on them!

I got a wedding monogram from www.truelovelogos.com -- and their ideas page gave me the idea of printing it on M&Ms! They came out so cute and it was great to see people marveling at them!

I used small pale green bags with ribbon and used the kelly green M&Ms -- I love tone on tone effects!
