Celtic wedding dresses are very popular with brides who have a strong
affinity with their Scottish, Welsh or Irish roots.
Or maybe you just love the medieval wedding dress look and style.
Most brides assume Celtic dresses come from Ireland (the majority do), although there are also some very good suppliers throughout Scotland and Wales also.
Don't feel you have to be Irish to wear a Celtic dress; maybe you are marrying into an Irish family or have Irish roots. Maybe you just like the style, if so go for it. An Irish theme is really easy and looks fantastic. Especially when you finish it with Celtic knot rings maybe a Claddagh engagement ring and send out Celtic themed wedding invites.
1. A simple under-dress or bodice with a flowing overdress.
2. A one piece style dress (usually nipped in at the waist).
Whichever style you choose Celtic dresses usually have lots of flowing fabric with loose sheer sleeves. The fabric is normally silk, cotton, velvet, lace or a combination of the four.
Your dress would then either be left very simple or embroidered in ornate thread embroidery in Celtic designs as in the picture above.
The colour of the Celtic wedding gown would historically have been blue which symbolised purity. Now however, white is very common but the beauty of Celtic wedding gowns is that you can choose from a number of rich colours without your guests raising an eyebrow.
Common colours used in Celtic dresses include vibrant reds, greens or blues.
A traditional Celtic wedding dress is very intricate and will usually be a little more expensive than a traditional wedding dress. They can be bought online cheaply but you need to ensure the quality will meet your expectations.
