- Wedding gown with irish lace
- A mantilla made of irish lace
- A wedding veil with a Celtic Knot detail
- Flower girl wearing a flower wreath with trailing green and white ribbons
- Carry a hankerchief made of old Irish linen

- A decorated cake (such as shown in the above picture)

- Clover bunches in flowerpots
- Buy or make a black pot and fill with gold foil chocolate coins.

Here are some suggestions on wedding colors:
- Some shade of green
- Gold
- Celadon
- Champange
- Blue (the color is symbolic for good luck for the Irish and was once Ireland's national color)

- Gold foil covered chocolate coins.
- Small terra cotta pots filled with wildflower seeds (decorate pots with shamrocks and rainbows)

- Dance to an Irish Jig during the reception!

- Exchange Claddagh rings. On the Claddagh, the hands mean friendship, the crown means loyalty, and the heart means love
- Irish tradition calls for the bride to carry a horseshoe down the aisle for good luck. Many Irish store sell small horseshoe pins for this purpose.
