These beliefs are the origin of the old marriage song:       Marry when the year is new, always loving, kind, and true.      When February birds do mate, you may wed, nor dread your fate.Who knows, maybe it will be possible to be married at the Rock of Cashel or the Hill of Tara - that really would be incredible.
USING AN IRISH HERITAGE SITE FOR A WEDDING CEREMONY In a marvellous development the Irish Government is now allowing couples to hire out some National Monuments and buildings for their wedding ceremony!
Incredible as it may seem you can now get married at: The Casino at Marino, Dublin Castletown House, Kildare Barryscourt Castle, Cork Desmond Hall, Limerick Kilkenny Castle, Kilkenny The Blasket Island Visitor Centre, Kerry The Ceide Fields Stoneage Visitor Centre, Mayo It seems certain that other sites will be added.
In Ireland today most weddings, but by no means all, take place on a Saturday. This is usually to facilitate visitors to the reception who would otherwise be at their place of work.
While it is not at all unusual to have a wedding during a weekday, it can often be inconvenient for guests. HANDFASTING - TYING THE KNOT Handfasting is an ancient Celtic tradition that involved tying the hands of the betrothed together well in advance of their actual wedding day.
Perhaps a hairdresser or make-up artist would be employed to help.
Collection of the bride from her home in a fancy decorated limo is often greeted with car-horns and cheers from passers-by.

As the decades and years rolled by and as the Catholic religion developed and reasserted itself in Ireland, the choice of Sunday became frowned upon as it was often seen as a mark of disrespect.
Similarly, it became unusual for a couple to be wed in May as this was the traditional start of Summer and was marked by a Pagan feast: Bealtane.
Marry in the month of May, you will surely rue the day.
