coffeelover23 I've never been to an Irish-themed wedding, but it sounds like fun.
Maybe you can get some of those wedding favors for cheap online.

AnnieQ St. Patrick's Day Wedding Favor Ideas

by Rose Smith, Copyright 2003

Many couples choose to get married on a particular
holiday and St. Patrick's Day brings a wealth of
fun opportunities to incorporate into an Irish
wedding theme. Here are some wedding favor ideas
that you can create for your St. Patrick's Day
(or Irish) themed wedding. If you'd like more
ideas on planning this type of theme wedding,


**Lucky Key Chains**

Give your guests a key chain with a lucky rabbit's
foot, a lucky horseshoe or a shamrock.

**Lucky Four Leaf Clover Pot**

Paint a 2" terra cotta pot green. Decorate along
rim with gold paint or small shamrock stickers.
Seal the pot with acrylic spray sealer. Place
small piece of florist foam in bottom. Glue in
some Spanish moss on top. Paint a few wooden
four-leaf clovers for each pot and add your
names and wedding date to one. Glue clovers to
wire or thin wooden dowels and insert into foam.

**Pot O' Gold**

Buy small cauldrons or buckets at a craft store.
Paint a pewter color if needed. Fill with small
gold-foil covered candies. Wrap in clear cellophane
to hold candies in place.

**Irish Music CD or Tape**

Give your guests a selection of your favorite
Irish music.


Fill Irish themed chocolate molds (either on a
sucker stick or as individual chocolates) and
wrap them in green cellephane with a green curly
ribbon as decoration. Some chocolate mold ideas
are: leprechaun hats, leprechaun figures, shamrocks,
Irish derby hats, lucky horseshoes, rainbows,
chocolate coins, and/or a lucky rabbit's foot.


Don't forget to add a favor tag to your wedding
favors, which include your names and your wedding
date. Here are a few Irish sayings and blessings
to add to your wedding tags:


Wherever you go and whatever you do,
May the luck of the Irish be there with you.

May your day be touched
by a bit of Irish luck,
brightened by a song in your heart,
and warmed by the smiles
of the people you love.


Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!


May your heart be light and happy,
May your smile be big and wide,
And may your pockets always have
a coin or two inside!


May you have all the happiness
and luck that life can hold—
And at the end of all your rainbows
may you find a pot of gold.


May you get all your wishes but one,
So you always have something to strive for.


May the love and protection St. Patrick can give
Be yours in abundance as long as you live.



Here are a few places on the web where you can purchase
Irish wedding favors and decorations.
