Fun Idea Friday: Giddy for Green

This St. Patrick’s Day, I don’t know about you, but we were looking for a little luck o’ the Irish to rub off on us. So this week’s Fun Idea Friday blog is all about ways to add that touch of green into your wedding. Some of you may be looking for a subtle hint of green, and that is lovely, but if you are really looking for a green theme, we have some green pictures that just might knock your socks off.

So if green is your color, or one of your colors for your wedding, please enjoy these green ideas. We hope you aren’t green with envy when you see what other people have done in the realm of green. (what, too many green jokes?)

Ways to “Go Giddy for Green”:

1. Get started early with green engagement pictures

Nothing says green like this wall in Owego

Look at the way her green coat just pops in this picture. Spring engagement pictures look great with a touch of bright color.

2. Go for Green Bridesmaid dresses

3. Think natural green: add a touch of a green to your wedding with grass, trees, and gardens

4. How about a Green wedding cake?

Sometimes a hint of green is all you need

5. Where would your Green Wedding be without some green decorations?

6. Maybe you prefer to be more ironic and have a wedding on the green! (Tee hee, this one cracks me up)

7. Still not enough green? How about giving your wedding an entire Irish theme?

Aren't these flowergirls gorgeous? We think so, especially with all the green ribbons guiding their way

You must have bagpiping with this much green. Must.

Why what are this Bride and Groom doing with this sword at their wedding?

Cutting the cake, of course. We don't know if this is an Irish tradition, but it was cool either way

Why wear uncomfortable tuxedo pants and shoes when you can wear a nice airy Irish kilt to your reception?

Whatever your preference, green is a symbol for life and new beginnings, the perfect accent color for your new beginning as a married couple. And, if a little bit of luck comes with it, so be it.

An Irish Blessing:

May you always be blessed with walls for the wind,

a roof for the rain, a warm cup of tea by the fire,

laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,

and all that your heart might desire.
