Irish Wedding Customs, Superstitions, and Lucky Traditions


We have all heard the expression “the luck of the Irish”. When a bride begins planning a wedding based on Irish customs, it is very true that much of what she does will be based on trying to bring good luck to the marriage and to shun bad luck at the same time. Irish weddings are rich with traditions, some of which are very familiar to Americans, and others which may not be. From Claddagh rings to beautiful marriage vows to mischievous fairies, this is a look into the wedding customs, superstition, and lucky traditions of Ireland. Continue reading

How to Deal With the Elements of Winter Weddings

DSCN0340White wedding in the forecast? Sounds beautiful — just make sure you’re prepared for the winter weather.

By Anja Winikka


Dress Appropriately

You don’t have to forgo outdoor photos just because you’re getting married in the winter. Just make sure you’re prepared with warm attire to avoid shivering your way through your photo session.

  • Find a warm shawl or a winter coat to go with your gown. (This could even be your “something blue.”)
  • For shoes, go for a close-toed style. And if there’s a chance it’ll be icy, opt for a pair of white snow boots that you can change in and out of for traveling between venues.
  • Also, consider adding white gloves, extra-warm tights, and even fuzzy white winter ear muffs.
  • Don’t forget the groom! It would be a shame for him to have to cover up his slick, black tux. Instead, he can wear formal black coat to coordinate with his attire. For an added punch of color, have him pick out a cool scarf that goes along with your wedding colors and style.
  • Include your bridal party when you’re considering winter attire too. We know one Aspen, Colorado, bride who bought all her bridesmaids matching white down coats for the festivities. Give the groomsmen coordinating scarves and ask that they wear formal dark coats.

Winter Wedding Cakes 5 ways to give your wedding cake some winter shimmer.

Wedding Cake Flavor

For your winter wedding, pick a cake that tastes like winter. What does winter taste like, exactly? Think rich flavors — and don’t be afraid to stray from the traditional white cake. Consider a caramel spice cake filled with caramel and a buttercream frosting, or an orange chocolate cake with dark chocolate filling and decorated with flecks of orange. For a lighter cake with a taste that still reflects the season, go for a white cake with cranberry buttercream frosting and filling.

Wedding Cake Color

Color counts for every wedding cake, and nothing says “winter” better than a palette of whites, icy blues, and deep reds or rustic greens mixed with brown. Add a hint of winter color with a simple chocolate ganache-covered cake trimmed in light blue, or an ivory buttercream cake trimmed in red. Or let the winter colors pop with an ivory cake covered in red sugarberries and green sugar holly leaves. See what real brides chose as their winter wedding colors.

Wedding Cake Flowers

Match your wedding cake to your bridal bouquet by asking your baker to create sugar versions of your flowers. For a modern wedding, ask your baker to make a few large graphic sugar calla lilies for your cake tiers. If you’re going for a more classic look, find out whether your baker can “paint” small stephanotis flowers along your cake using an edible dye. Find your winter wedding flowers.

Wedding Cake Shapes and Add-ons

When it comes to a winter wedding cake, snowflakes, pinecones, and other winter elements made out of chocolate, sugar, or gum paste are an obvious choice. But you don’t have to go overboard with these add-ons to get a wintery look. Instead, you can order a white cake with subtle white sugar snowflakes. The tone-on-tone look will up the elegant factor and still give you the same seasonal effect. See more winter wedding ideas.

Wedding Cake Sides

Whether you’re already set on a wedding cake design or you’ve decided to take your wedding cake in a not-so-seasonal direction, consider serving a winter-inspired side with your wedding cake. Serve cake a la mode with black walnut ice cream; add a handful of starlight mints to each plate; or indulge comfort-food lovers with warm chocolate pudding.
