We love Ireland (we’re an Irish wedding website, so can you blame us?) and we love it when couples embrace the beautiful hue as an ode to their home country. Today we’re rounding up our favourite real wedding features that include shades of green!

“As we are both self-confessed nerds, there were many geeky elements throughout the day. The main colour of the day was emerald green to match Deirdre’s engagement ring. The bridesmaid dresses were emerald green that matched the leaf of Lorien pins that the groom, groomsmen, fathers, grooms woman all wore (from Lord of the rings).”

Shades of Sage

“We had a small church ceremony in St. Peter’s and Pauls’s Church Crecora, as our faith is very important to us. It was an uplifting ceremony as my brother and his friend, Clodagh sang for us. This was such a privilege.”

Green, White and Gold

“We didn’t purposely have a theme or colour, but worked out that we kept it simple with green, white and gold mainly.”

Bright and White

“As it was a winter wedding we opted for green and white in the church. I think the Connemara room is incredibly classic so didn’t opt for too many decorations here.”

“Once we chose our venue there was only ever one option for the theme; rustic, floral and sage green colours as it set the venue off perfectly!”
