Weave Celtic Inspiration Into Your Day

Categories Resources

Everybody is a little bit Irish on March 17th {wink, wink} but what about the Scottish and Welsh in you that wants to share your heritage with your guests on your big day?  Rich in beautiful music, storytelling, color and symbols, infuse a little or a lot of Celtic influence into your wedding.  Your guests will love to know about your heritage and those special aspects that are important to you.

Give guests a taste of the highlands~  Opt for the kilt.  Charm them with emotion-stirring bagpipers. Explain any traditional customs you’re participating in and/or include a proverb in the program.

Another way to celebrate and carry a Celtic theme is through a variation of the beautiful Celtic Knot, which symbolizes love, life and commitment.  You can easily carry this time-honored symbol throughout your wedding.  Some ideas…

your wedding stationery…


as embellishment around your wedding cake…



all throughout  your decorations

… including the guest book… and of course your wedding rings!

Doesn’t a Celtic-inspired wedding sound romantic and fun?  What do you think? Any having one?

    I had a celtic themed wedding which pretty much dictated the colors of my wedding. I went by the purple, navy and green in my husband’s tartan, colors I would never have combined. They did however look stunning.

    I went to a wedding in which the groom ordered a kilt in his family plaid, and the groomsmen had basic black watch plaid kilts (rentals, who knew you could rent kilts!?). They looked awesome. Bagpipes in the brick/tile chapel were also amazing. So fun to have their heritage be part of the ceremony
