The Celtics were originally from Europe. The Irish, Scottish, Welsh and the Europeans follow the Celtic tradition. Their tradition is rich in luck symbols, art, and crafts. Their wedding signifies love and commitment for the entire lifetime. In ancient times, the Celts used to dress up in colorful gowns and kilts. They had their traditional wedding dresses, but at present Celtic wedding dresses are designed by professional designers for wedding ceremonies.
Celtic wedding dresses are rich in color, fabric, trimming, and embellishments. They can be informal, formal, an elegant one-piece, or a simple dress overhung by silk linen. For the bride, it is usually a full gown with unique boutique designs and the works. The wedding gowns have lots of fabric work on the sleeves and neckline and can be made up of fabrics like silk, lace, satin, cotton, or velvet. They can either be ornamented with heavy decorations or can be simple and sleek. The gown can also have a headband decorated with flowers and frills. For a Celtic wedding, the groom should also have a similar garb. For the groom, the dress can be formal with tunic pants and a full-sleeved shirt with a bold collared neck. A velvet coat, waist coat, or a jacket with a silk neck tie and broad leather belt will add glamor to the outfit. If the groom wants a traditional Celtic outfit, then it should ideally be a bright colored silk or velvet long cloak, breeches or long sleeved tunics, kilts, tartan and sporran, ornamented with bright designs.
