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.

TALAR'S STORY: BUYING ALCOHOL FOR OUR WEDDING

Our venue, Metropol Banquet hall, similar to many other halls requires us to bring our own alcohol. Some may think that this is an easy task, but I can assure you that it isn't. First, there was deciding what type of alcohol we wanted. We knew we wanted vodka and whiskey, but didn't know if we wanted red or white wine, or both. We decided on red wine only.

FAVORS OR NO FAVORS?

As the old saying goes, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." The same could be said about wedding favors.

On one hand, your guests have dedicated their time and money to come celebrate you, and something that says "thank you" should be in order. But finding a creative way to do so is a challenge many couples find themselves facing during the wedding planning process.

Some of today's weddings are going beyond the traditional box of candy or chocolate in each place setting, leaving guests with a more fun, yummy or feel-good kiss goodnight. Here are a few ideas to consider:

Photo or GIF Booth

It's a compact, easy gift (and an often wallet-friendly option for you) to leave your guests with. Bonus points: You can leave cutouts of your faces as props to add a more personal touch.
