Irish Wedding Traditions

Bells- Irish Wedding 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.

Celtic tradition: oathing stone. Celtic Oathing Stone: “The couple holds or puts their hands on a stone during their vows to “set them in stone”

Create a plywood wall with cut outs and nail frames for guests to take photos in... Super different but kinda neat :) :) Would be neat for halloween parties.

Ancient tradition of Handfasting, this is where the phrase "Tying the knot" originated. Works beautifully in modern ceremonies.

Handfasting Ceremony is a simple & traditional ceremony used in Irish, Scottish, and Welsh weddings, which goes back to the medieval period. The ritual includes a loose binding together of the couple’s hands, which also gave rise to the slang phrase “to tie the knot”..

There is an Irish wedding tradition where the bride carries a horse shoe down the isle...Western Wedding Bouquet Charm Horseshoe by KeepsakesByKatherine.

They actually tied a knot. They tied a fisherman’s knot. It’s the strongest knot. The rope will break before the knot comes undone and the knot only gets tighter with pressure. Frame the knot and vows as a keepsake. WAY better than the usual candle or sand elements. :)

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.
