Irish people love celebrations and a wedding is one of the most beloved. There are delightful Irish wedding traditions that date back in history, many that still exist in modern weddings today. These traditions were born from folklore and superstition yet understanding the background behind them is as interesting as including them in the ceremony.
Many of the traditions find their roots in nature; several signify the relevance of the times; and most enlist the cooperation of family members and friends. By participating in the delightful traditions of the past and present, a couple's wedding becomes a tribute to their ancient heritage while creating lasting memories to be duplicated by others in the future.
