The Wedding Guide
A Celtic Wedding has become extremely popular in North America , as more couples want to make a connection with their past, and follow the old traditions and customs of their ancestors. The resurgence of Celtic jewellery as the preferred wedding band, is due not only to the quality craftsmanship in the intricate knots and designs, but that the jewellery has meanings and stories behind them.

The Ardagh Chalice
The Ardagh Chalice was made by the Celts in Ireland in the eighth century, and is considered one of the finest examples of Celtic craftsmanship. It was buried intentionally to hide it from the Norse invaders, and a thousand years later it was uncovered; the design is now used in a series of wedding bands that are carried by The Scottish and Irish Store.
Silver Sixpence Display
The well known wedding rhyme “wear something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue,” has more of the rhyme that isn’t as well known: “and a silver sixpence in her shoe.” The tradition over the centuries has evolved that the father of the bride gives his daughter a silver sixpence, which she wears in her left shoe during the wedding ceremony for good luck in her marriage.
A visit to our Bells Corners store will provide you with a variety of items that will contribute to that special wedding day, and if you need information or ideas on customs and traditions we have resources you can access.
