I know St. Patrick’s Day isn’t until next week, but Wedding Wednesday fell a week early, so…why not celebrate a week early? Right? Riiiight???
So, I’m not Irish. (I’m actually Scottish, Norman, and German-Dutch.) But I love St. Patrick’s Day. Maybe because I can wear Kiss me, I’m Irish shirts and no one questions it. 😉
Oh goodness. Do you ever watch those wedding dress shows? And you just can’t understand how a bride can spend so much money on two dresses because they can’t decide between the two?
I now understand.
So today, there are two dresses. Just consider the second one to be a reception change.
Isn’t this second dress cute?? And look at the gold sparkles. Perfect for the gold accents that show up a little later in this post! 🙂
So, apparently this week I’m indecisive. Because now I have two hairstyles. Ugh. The dresses call for an up-do, but really? Who can deny this half-up do?
You can’t have a St. Patty’s Day wedding without some Celtic knots! And isn’t this the cutest place for them?!
So for the up-do for the dresses, though, here’s what I found. Braids. Too sweet!
The Bridesmaid dress:
You guys. I’m dying over this one. Dying. I need it.
The one thing that you need to be careful of in themed weddings is going overboard. So nixing the green on the cake helps to up the elegance. (But I have to admit, I’d probably remove that shimmery gold clover.)
I looooove the gold as an accent color with an emerald green wedding. So pretty!
Bonus! The ring:
When I spotted this, I had to include it. Because. Bling.
So what do you think? Would you want a St. Patrick’s Day wedding? What’s your favorite from today’s post?
