If an outdoor wedding is your desire, you can’t beat a backdrop like this. The castle’s stature and age reflect the elegance of your enduring love.

Kilts

Every wedding you’ll attend this spring will have groomsmen in pastel colors. It’s time to buck the trend and go full kilt!  Get it, full tilt? Kilt? Anyway, your groomsmen will be memorable and far more comfortable in this traditional garb.

Green is a polarizing color for bridesmaids. Adding accents of red provides contrast.

Wedding Ceremony Chairs and Arch

With such a beautiful location, minimal adornment is needed. Having a natural backdrop adds to the green theme. Bright whites are ideal for the chairs at your ceremony.

Handfasting

Celtics know this tradition as hand fasting. This tradition derives from Old Norse: hand-fiesta and binds the couples hands with ribbon or a cord. This is a public symbol of the couple joining hands, bargaining their relationship together, and symbolizes their marriage vows. a sort of “lets shake on it” deal. Each color has a different meaning and connects the couple in their marriage contract.

These chair decorations are really a no-brainer.  Sheer fabric is inviting and not flashy.

Every little detailed covered in green.  Against all these greens, you really can’t overdo the baby’s breath.  The tiny white petals look like they were just freshly picked.

Wedding decor

A beautiful toasting table overflowing with pale purples and whites reflects your taste for elegance that eschews the noisy and indulgent.  Moss makes for a perfect presentation of the rings.
