The Irish believe in custom and tradition, not to mention curses and superstition, so it is easy to understand how Irish wedding traditions are passed from one generation to the next.
The Irish Gift House offers several Irish bridal gifts that reflect ages old Irish wedding rituals, such as the bride carrying a horseshoe or an Irish sixpence in her shoe, both customs are for good luck.
In days of old, an Irish bride would carry a real horseshoe for luck. This horseshoe would later be hung above the home's door for continued luck throughout the marriage; always keeping the horseshoe upright or the luck would run out. In modern Irish wedding ceremonies, a lighter decorative horseshoe is often substituted for a heavy metal horseshoe.
