Are you planning an Irish wedding? A modern Celtic wedding incorporates traditions from the past, here are a few ideas and sources to get you started:
- Irish brides used to carry a real horseshoe for good luck, modern brides now carry porcelain horseshoes or one made of fabric worn on the wrist.
- The chime of bells is thought to keep evil spirits away, restore harmony if a couple is fighting, and also remind a couple of their wedding vows. You could have your greeters hand out tiny bells to your guests to ring during your procession or at the reception in lieu of clinking glasses.
- Dark green wedding invitation with vintage artwork and an embroidered Celtic wrap, $1.22 each from Formal-Invitations.com, order at http://www.formal-invitations.com/AR-FORS-CELT.html
