Favor Ideas and Table Decorations for a St. Patrick's Day Wedding

With lots of laughter, love, luck and blessings, the longstanding tradition of St. Patrick's Day presents many unique and fun opportunities to highlight or appreciate the Irish culture. When planning this special day, the key is to incorporate meaningful and decorative symbols by utilizing vibrant shades of green and gold. Take advantage of the many beautiful imagery associated with this day from pots of gold to shamrocks, while translating them into whimsical elements that lend a hand to creating a warm and jovial wedding reception.

Create Elegant Table Place Frames Decorated with Miniature Shamrocks

The color gold goes hand in hand with representing the meaning of luck and prosperity especially in weddings. To convey an element of luck, use tiny green shamrocks together with the placecards on gold place card frames. Alternatively, you can also express this notion by tying emerald green colored ribbons in satin or organza. Arrange these frames elegantly at a receiving table to welcome guests at a hotel reception or outdoor dinner party. As your guests arrive, bridesmaids can direct them to the frames as they locate their seats at the reception. You can also put up a table seating chart that is placed beside your receiving table - position the frames on this table with a sign that directs guests to their appropriate table. In this manner, your bridesmaids can be attending to other duties, or simply enjoying themselves at the party.
