Honey Beekeeper
  • Wedding: November 1999

You could include the green and brown, or copper, without the leprechauns.

There was another post today by a bride using a beautiful fern bouquet. If you picked up on that idea, you would have green but subtle.


In your case substitute the celtic knot for the fern in your paper items.

Here are a couple of links:

Other than that, it depends on how far you want to take it:

favors- the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow-little clay pots with gold foil covered chocolate coins

accessories -An Irish bride carries a handkerchief, the “magic hanky,” on her wedding day that will later be stitched into a christening bonnet for her baby.

The bouquet-English lavender symbolizing love, devotion and purity is used in the wedding flowers and a shamrock may be tucked in for extra luck.

The guys-The groom and his groomsmen dress in kilts, traditionally worn without undergarments. *grin*

The drink-Serve mead, traditional wine made from honey, to guests at the reception. Irish newlyweds then drink it daily for the next month to keep away the evil fairies; this is where the term “honeymoon” comes from.

The Toast- The bride and groom lead a toast, “Friends and relatives, so fond and dear, ’tis our greatest pleasure to have you here. When many years this day has passed, fondest memories will always last. So we drink a cup of Irish mead and ask God’s blessing in your hour of need.” And the guests respond, “On this special day, our wish to you, the goodness of the old, the best of the new. God bless you both who drink this mead, may it always fill your every need.”
