Have any of you ever seen the movie Easter Parade with Fred Astaire and Judy Garland? I watched it yesterday for the first time, and let me tell you… 5th avenue in NYC on Easter… is not your traditional Easter Parade. In fact… it’s the complete opposite.

After a super delicious brunch at Sarabeth’s we headed over to St. Patrick’s Cathedral for mass… but not before passing the spring edition of the Village Halloween parade out front.

This was a far cry from the pink and green patterns at sunrise mass on the South Carolina coast, that I’m used to. But it was hilarious and super entertaining. I can’t figure out if the characters strutting up and down 5th avenue were tourists (some had their children dressed up in ridiculous hats too … those poor kids!) or native New Yorkers. My guess is a little bit of both.

Either way… I was inspired (kind of) by the Easter parade. After all if you can’t wear a hat on Easter, when are you going to wear one? People in London get to wear hats all the time to weddings… except there they’re called FASCINATORS. Fancy right?

So, I’m proposing a serious hat comeback in honor of Judy, Fred and all the Easter bonnet wanna-be wearing New Yorkers.

My friend E is getting married in November and has decided that hats are definitely necessary for a seriously fun time. So… I’m on the hunt for the perfect hat.

(Just don’t come to my wedding in a 5 foot high hat covered in butterflies please and thank-you) I’m talking SJP, not SFU (Seriously freakin’ ugly).

Here are some contenders…

I hope you were all a little bit more lucky in life and love today! After all everyone really is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. Make those little green leprechauns hiding in the shadows send some of that luck your way! In honor of my Irish half here are some of my favorite green Etsy items for you brides out there (and I personally know at least one) incorporating lucky and lovely shades of green into your wedding world! Green Weddings! So fun!

A word of caution: Don’t incorporate ALL of these things into your green wedding world. Often…less is more.

This is adorable from Etsy Seller LuckeyU. You can absolutely do this on your own too. A little spanish moss, branch basket and ribbon (local craft store) and you have your very own DIY ring pillow. OR you could just invest in this fabulous one.

No secret I love me some pink and green. But green works well on its own with weddings because it matches all your flowers- more or less- and it’s almost a “neutral” color when used sparingly as an accent color with other neutrals. These super cute polka dot ties from Etsy seller Me and Matilda, would be great with a khaki colored suit. Very casual, very backyard, very good near water. Love them!

Subtlety can go a long way… ditch the bright green bridesmaid dress and opt for shades of green that COMPLIMENT each other. Don’t make me come find you…
