Ceremony. Before Christianity found Ireland, couples at the wedding ceremony practised hand fasting. This ritual was known since Pagan times and is the Celtic ceremony of unity. During the ritual the couple hold hands, right hand in right hand, and left hand in left with their wrists crossed. Ribbon or cord is then wrapped around the wrists in a figure eight to represent infinity.

Ceremony. Blessings and toasts. When the guests congratulate the couple the first person to offer congratulations to the bride must be a man. Traditionally a male member of the groom’s family will be the first to congratulate the bride and welcome her to the family.

Customs. Throwing a bouquet. The custom of the bride throwing the bouquet to the unmarried guests dates from the 14th century and probably originated in France. The woman who catches the flowers is supposed to be the next to marry.

Customs. Carrying the bride over the threshold. There are two explanations for the tradition of carrying the bride over the threshold when entering their home as a married couple for the first time:1) to protect the bride from evil spirits that were thought to be lying in wait under the threshold,2)in Roman times it was believed that if the bride stumbled entering the newly married's home for the first time, it would bring bad luck and harm to their marriage.

Customs. Throwing the rice and confetti The origin of throwing confetti over newlyweds predated Christ since it originates from the ancient Pagan rite of showering the happy couple with grain(cereals) to wish upon them a 'fruitful' union. Pagans believed that the fertility of the seeds would be transferred to the couple on whom they fell. The throwing of rice has the same symbolic meaning.

Customs. The word confetti has the same root as the word 'confectionery' in Italian and was used to describe 'sweets' that is, grain and nuts coated in sugar that were thrown over newly weds for the same Pagan reason. In recent years, small pieces of coloured paper have replaced sweets, grain and nuts as an inexpensive substitute but the use of the word confetti has remained.
