The Claddagh has been in the Celtic culture as a symbol of the heart, friendship and loyalty. You can easily incorporate the sentiment 'With my hands I give you my heart and crown it with my love' that the Claddagh symbolizes as your Irish wedding theme.
Another popular and long standing Irish symbol is the shamrock that is considered a sign of good luck and can also be added throughout your wedding decor and into the favors. For a little flair and inexpensive creativity, place individual terra-cotta pots of clover at each table setting to carry the shamrock theme and add color to the reception tables.
Tradition is very important to the Irish and will undoubtedly be for many generations to come. Enjoy planning your Irish themed wedding with accessories and favors that will keep your guests feeling lucky and as blessed as you.
