Your wedding is one of the biggest moments of your life, so of course planning it isn’t always easy. So many details, and you want every last thing to be perfect. Even if you hire a wedding planner, which is a great idea, you still have a lot of work to do to create a day that represents you and your partner, where you are from and where you are going together.

Relax. First, there are no absolute rights and wrongs. You can chose a secular or spiritual celebration. You can have half a dozen bridesmaids or none. You can wear a traditional white wedding dress or rock a vibrant color or unusual cut. It’s a day for the two of you. Second, we’re here to offer a little help. Yes, Shanore sells stunning engagement and wedding rings, but we also want to help you enjoy the day and add a few special touches to celebrate your love of Ireland. So we’ve prepared a short guide to help you plan your wedding.

Shanore’s Guide to Wedding Planning

Shanore’s wedding planning guide is an overview of the basics of preparing for your marriage ceremony and reception and working in some Irish traditions and themes. It covers the practical aspects and adds some flair and whimsy to make the celebration your very own. Learn about some fascinating Irish wedding traditions and take your ceremony beyond simply adding a few shamrocks in the decorations. After all, joining two families together and starting a new one is the ideal time to really think about your heritage and what it means to you, what role you want it to play in your new life together and what new things you can learn about and appreciate together.

With so many practical details to consider, it is easy to overlook even very simple ways to weave Irish wedding traditions into your day. Looking for something different in a wedding dress? Did you know that wedding dresses in Ireland were once normally blue? Want an unforgettable cake instead of a bland tasting one? Irish wedding cakes are dark and heavy with fruit, although they look the same as North American ones on the outside.

You can start incorporating Irish traditions into your wedding from the start – there are beliefs about getting married in each of the 12 months of the year will influence your marriage. And if you are worried about the budget, you’ll be glad to know that these beliefs give you a good reason for choosing a less popular month such as September or November. June is not a bad choice… if you like to travel!

Whether you’re considering a destination wedding in Ireland or looking for tips to bring the spirit of the Emerald Isle to your ceremony, we’ve packed what you need to know to get your planning started into a few pages. We hope you enjoy learning a bit more about Irish wedding traditions and that you find a few new ways to celebrate your heritage at your wedding.
