Those are adorable! I have a little boy, so I don't think one would look right on him, I do have nieces though!....... I do have to bring up.... the barbie is freaking me out, lol. I use to have a my size doll that would walk with you if you tilted her a certain way. Well.... My dad decided I was old enough to watch Childs Play with him (I was 6), and later that night I thought my doll was going to come to life like Chucky and kill me in my sleep, so I dismembered her and threw her down the stairs... lol.
5  UNITED STATES / Missouri / St. Louis Pagan Picnic on: January 19, 2009 07:05:08 PM
Hello my fellow st. louis chickies..... I just wanted to pop in and tell of a wonderful event where some may possibly be able to show off and sell their homemade wares.... hehe (look at me trying to sound all spiffy and professional... is it working? No? Grrrr). I've been attending the St. Louis Pagan Picnic for a few years now (as security staff with my amazing fiance' and last year with our son). So many people come and set up tables and tents with their homemade stuff to sell and just to all around have fun. I wanted to post the link for it in case anyone was interested and wanted to reserve a vendor site (of just go to have fun and see all the amazing stuff that is there) I'll be there again this year with my fiance' and our son June 13th and 14th in Tower Grove Park off of Grand Blvd. not far from I-44. Hope to see ya there!

I had planned on making a large with and sparkly snowflake for my mom's front door ( I still am), but I love this idea. I could probably make an interesting mobile to hang over my son's crib (from the ceiling of course, he's 13 months old). I like the idea of using fabric too. You could probably try using a glue of some sort to coat the fabric squares in prior to cutting and piecing that way they stay in place, and don't flop over. Kinda like when some people crochet angels for the top of christmas trees.

Oh wow! You're wedding was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! I hope you don't mind if I borrow some of your idea's for when me and my fiancee' get married.... one Lindsay's idea's, to another Linsey? lol I loved the flip flop idea for your brides maids. We're going to have a june wedding I (we're going by traditional Irish folklore, and June is good luck) and my girls love wearing flip flops.

I absolutely LOVE that last dress!!!

I'm Irish and we don't really use tartan and kilts are not part of our national dress, thats really just scotland. We dont really have family tartans but you can get tartans that are associated with certain parts of the country.

If your boyf associates his family connections to be more with scotland than Ireland then I think tartan would be so nice particularly if it was a winter wedding.

But if he sees himself as more irish then scottish then you could use celtic knots as the basis for your theme.

this is a picture of the inside of Newgrange, an ancient burial chamber (3200BC)

and this is more recent celtic artwork (well i say recent they think its from 800AD!) this is a page from the book of kells (illustrated versions of the gospels made by monks) It is obviously more "modern" than the work in Newgrange but follow the same celtic themes.

(google image search book of kells for more)

this artwork can be used anywhere you like

dress - modern

old styly
http://www.shelaghm.co.uk/images/celtic%20dresses/celtic-wedding-dress.jpg

and the whole thing can be customised for you as you can design your own patterns (google image search celtic knot for inspiration) When we were in school as kids learning about this stuff they used to get us to make our own in art class.

Hope this was a help and maybe gave you some inspiration for your wedding. Best of luck and congrats on your engagment!

It's not that I don't want him or the guys to wear kilts... he tends to change his mind. When were about 8 months into our relationship I was talking with a friend of mine while he was in the room. I mentioned that if I ever got married that I wanted to have an Irish themed one, He in turn spun around and said "I'm not wearing a kilt!" lol. Now he's saying that he wants to wear one. I think he may end up changing his mind later on down the road.


Black and red tartan is super easy to find.  You can let the guy have his kilts and you could do beautiful dresses in silver with black and red accents.  Tartan table runners and even a plaid cake for the reception! 

I can't find the photo anymore but I had a photo of a silk wedding gown that you could have a small panel of your new family's tartan as a sash or accent.
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Black/Red/Silver Irish themed HELP!!!! on: October 27, 2008 08:25:22 PM
In a year or so, My fiancee' Sean and I are getting married. We havn't set a date yet, but he told me that I can plan anytime I want (he's fully aware that I'm going to be crafting a lot of the stuff for that day). I've always wanted to have an Irish themed wedding, and lucky me, I landed myself a Scotch Irish guy  Grin. Now, he some how managed to talk me into a black and red theme, and I agreed as long as we could have silver in it too. He also want to go with the tradition of the guys wearing kilts (this will more than likely change, lol). Now. I have no clue how to incorprate these three colors into an Irish themed wedding. I need idea's and google and google image search aren't helping me much. Does anyone have any idea's on stuff I can make, or websites reading suggestions etc? I would appreciate it so incredibly much!
