Giving a bell as a wedding gift is another Irish tradition. The chime of bells is said to keep evil spirits away and also remind the married couple of their wedding vows. A nice modern twist is to hand out tiny bells to your guests to ring as you ‘tie the knot’ or when you exit the church instead of throwing confetti.
For their rustic DIY outdoor wedding reception, Amanda and Brian created a beer bar drink station complete with 24 ounce frosted shatterproof cups personalized with the wedding design 'To Love, Laughter and Happily Ever After' on one side and their names and wedding date on the other side.
