It’s important for your wedding to be perfect. When you are planning an Irish wedding, there are several ideas to consider, ranging from the dress to the wedding singers. Additionally, you want to consider some of the various venue choices available to you in Melbourne. Here are some Melbourne Irish Wedding Ideas and Popular Venue Choices.






Ideas for Your Irish Wedding

There are a lot of different ways for you to incorporate culture and style into your Irish wedding. You have to decide whether you want to honor your Irish heritage in a traditional or more modern way.

Claddagh Ring

The most well-known tradition in the Irish culture is the Claddagh ring. It’s worn on the right-hand so that the point of the heart faces the fingertip. Once a woman is engaged, it moves to her left hand and it is flipped at the wedding to show that her heart has been captured.


There is a Celtic tradition where the hands of the happy are tied together so that it’s symbolic in joining in matrimony. It’s where the “tying the knot” phrase came from.

All throughout your reception, you may want to consider Irish culture as well. Consider having a corned beef carving station and even potato and leek soup for your entrée. You may also want to stock the bar with such things as Bailey’s Irish cream, Jameson, and Guinness.

You may also want to carry a horseshoe, such as having it incorporated into your bouquet, as it is a sign of good luck on your wedding day. A smaller, porcelain version, may also be sewn into your wedding dress.

Popular Venue Choices

When you start looking at wedding venues, you need to consider how they are going to affect your ability to host an Irish wedding. You will be able to find a wedding singer without a problem regardless of whether you want an indoor or outdoor wedding.
