I can’t post any pictures because it wasn’t my wedding.. but one of my friends did that kind of theme. the girls wore green dresses with black sashes, she had green converses on, boys had green vests, her hubby had on a white vest. Lots and lots of white flowers and black table cloths.

@Woodstock:  Oh that’s so pretty!

We had an Irish blessing read during the ceremony (May the road rise to meet you) and there was a Claddagh symbol on the back of all our paper stuff: invites, programs, etc. I’ve seen some lovely Celtic and Irish wedding elements sold online like cake toppers, toasting flutes, guestbooks, favors, etc. Etsy can be your best friend to find things like that!

We are using a variety of different shades of green.

We designed our rings with a really cool Celtic-knotwork-and-floral pattern, and we’re using the same design on the invitations, programs, etc.

If you’re having a church wedding, I can pass along some titles of really lovely Celtic sacred music you could use.

If I was getting married in March, and my Fiance was Irish like me, there would be no question/hesitation about an Irish theme for me (plus I live in Boston, no shortage of all things Irish!).  What a great theme, color scheme!  There are plenty of cool Irish traditions to tie into your wedding without making it like the St. Patrick’s Day parade 🙂 Did you check out the book The Traditional Irish Wedding?  It’s packed with stuff.  Some cool things off the top of my head are to wear your hair in a braid- it’s good luck for brides, and signifies the Celtic knot.  The term “tying the knot” comes from the Irish tradition of binding hands (wrist over wrist, and then with a cord or rope) at the end of the ceremony.  Also, ancient Irish brides wore blue dresses for their wedding (that might be a stretch but a cool idea!)  Have fun planning- sounds beautiful far!
