The title explains it all, My Brother and his newly proposed fiance plan to wed in 2008. The wedding theme is Celtic-esque at best with the color scheme of Lavender and Cream Green.

We have several Ideas but... we need some more help.  Any Ideas would be greatly appricated.

They should incorporate the celtic knot in creative ways.  Maybe, have it be their main theme like, using it on the invites, and on the cake.  And the bride could wear a celtic knot necklace or something.  Gimme time, i'm sure I can think of more!

are they useing those cladah (sp?Huh the hands holding a heart ring design) designs as wedding rings? its and easy motife, and you can get cakse toppers.

Also, you can put embroidery on her dress in knotwork designs. oh, and that spiffy tree design you see everywhere. i dunno the name.

and there are calligraphy fonts what would go well with a theme like that, especialy when they have the realy fancy capital letters. That could go on the guestbook, invites, and so on.

you can also get celticy looking candal holders.

not very creative, i know. mabey you could be more specific what your looking for?

just, please, ask them not to have a freind sing at the wedding, and throw gaeilic lyrics at them at the last minute, when they dont know anything about it. it makes singers cry. Oh! what abour harp or violin music in that vein?

There are lots of little details that can be added to a Celtic wedding. Having a Celtic knot on invitations as a watermark or other element would be nice, without being overbearing. Somewhere on the boards was a beaded tree of life pendant - do a search and you should be able to find it. That would be neat for the bride's jewelry, or even for decorating candles as centerpieces. Just because I'm into cross stitching right now, a neat idea for a gift would be a cross stitched Celtic-style border with their names and wedding date inside. Here is a Celtic style pattern generator that you type your phrase into, and then it produces it in a Celtic style cross stitch pattern.

Our wedding had some Celtic/Renaissance elements to it ... Here are a couple of pics that show that:

Ryan got his clothes at a Renaissance faire, and I got my dress at David's Bridal.

I hand-wrote our invitations and used "old-timey" words and style.

Our cake topper was purchased at the Renaissance faire as well.

Forgive all the pics, I like showing off our wedding!  Wink
