Seven Ways to Have an Irish Wedding

 

Honor your Irish heritage in ways romantic and clever with these great old traditions. Add them to your ceremony and reception to remind you of the Emerald Isle.

The key to pulling off a coordinated event: Evoke your theme throughout the affair, it should be the subtle thread that ties everything together. Your location, invitations, flowers, menu, cake, and favors should all cleverly reflect one common concept. Then, get as creative as you can!

Harvest Knots

According to history, Irish men declared their intentions of marriage by giving their fiancée harvest knots of straw decorated with flowers or bells to wear in their hair or around their neck. Make a harvest knot to wear on your wedding day, or place one in your bouquet to symbolize your Irish heritage.

 

Flowers

The traditional green flower for Irish weddings is Bells of Ireland. Add green Limon Roses, green Hydrangeas, green Carnations, green Mums & green Calla Lilies.

For table centerpiece, use a bunch of Bells of Ireland placed in clear glass tower vases.

Lace!

A way to incorporate Celtic pride into your wedding attire. Known for its intricate patterns and zenith quality, wear a veil or carry a handkerchief made of this intricate Irish decoration.

Playin' o' the Pipes

Although bagpipes have Celtic roots, they are traditionally Scottish. For a truly Emerald Isle affair, locate an Irish uillean piper to lead the processional or recessional.

Irish Wedding Feast

The customary wedding feast in Ireland was a potluck hosted at the bride's family's home. Each guest brought traditional Irish dishes such as soda bread, coddle, and stew. Even if you're having a more formal reception, you can still celebrate this Irish tradition by having a "feast" for your bridal shower or rehearsal dinner.

Giving the Claddagh

Two hands holding a heart underneath a crown is the Irish symbol for "Let Love and Friendship Reign". Share your Irish heritage with your attendants by giving them Celtic-inspired gifts marked with the claddagh. Give your maid of honor a candle gift engraved with the "faith ring", or jewelry made of claddagh. Buy claddagh wedding rings, or wear the Irish symbol around your neck on your wedding day as a reminder of your heritage.

Tie the Knot with Handfasting

Ever wonder how the saying "Tie the Knot" originated? It was derived from the ancient Celtic tradition of handfasting in which a couple's wrists were loosely tied together during their wedding ceremony to symbolize their commitment to each other. Whether you're Irish or not, you may want to include Handfasting Ribbons in your ceremony.
