THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO YOUR WEDDING DAY SHOT LIST

Here's a fact. You're going to take an infinite number of photos on your wedding day. Prepare yourself (and your mouth, for the record!) to smile ear to ear from AM to PM. But the great news is that it won't be so hard to do, right?

What may be a little difficult to keep track of is the actual photos you are taking, since that's more or less up to your photography crew. However, as much as your photographer is going to capture every second of the Big Day, it may be a good idea to get a list together of who or what you'd like to take photos of so that no important or special moment is missed. And, it'll also be helpful for your photographer to have this list on hand so he or she could better organize his or her own check list for your event.

17 IRISH WEDDING CUSTOMS AND TRADITIONS

There are many wedding traditions around the world. These traditions vary from culture to culture, nation to nation. Incorporating traditions or customs into your wedding, add meaning and history to your special day. In honor of St. Patrick's Day, we're sharing some of our favorite Irish wedding traditions.

1. Claddagh Ring:

The Claddagh ring is an old Irish tradition. The Claddagh ring is either passed down from one generation to the next or given by Irish men to their girlfriends. The ring represents love, friendship, and loyalties. Single girls wear the ring on their right hand with point of the heart facing the fingertip. When in a relationship, the ring is flipped to face the wrist, symbolizing that the heart has been captured and the lady is not available. When engaged to be married, the ring is switched to the left hand with the point of the heart facing the fingertip. Lastly, at the wedding the ring is flipped to face the wrist! This is similar to the Armenian tradition of wearing the engagement ring on the right hand and moving it to the left hand at the wedding.
