Description


From matchmaking to speed-dating, strawboys to gatecrashers, and jaunting carts to limousines, the face of Irish weddings has changed dramatically over the centuries. Connecting the old with the new, this overview traces the path of both romance and marriage from olden-day Ireland up to the present era. The various ceremonies and proverbs associated with marriage are discussed, and the antics that traditionally followed the couple up the aisle are also addressed. Humorous and lighthearted, this beautifully illustrated exploration also contains advice on how to hold your own traditional Irish wedding.
