My husband and I are wanting to renew our vows. We eloped when we got married so we want to have an actual ceremony. But we are wanting to do a Celtic themed wedding. I am having a very hard time finding anything for it. Most of the dresses I have found cost in the 5-7 thousand dollar range. I have found nothing for a cake idea. Can someone help me with finding somewhere to look online?

I'm making my daughter's celtic theme wedding dress, along with the bridesmaids.

This can be a gift from someone. If someone wants to get you something special, let them know. It can keep your costs down.
Have a flute player, or guitar, etc. We plan to have an outdoor wedding. She's talked about a pig roast, or at least a cookout. Where do you live? Some areas have lovely B and B's that have lovely scenery for a beautiful celtic themed wedding.
Have fun with this. it is your dream wedding - that has finally arrived. My daughter, due to the in-law family making all sorts of remarks, is at the point of eloping herself, but we are trying to encourage her to have the wedding as it is a celebration for the couple, not the family.
Anyway. Good luck with all this. It is fun!
An acquaintance was telling me that her niece had one. During part of the ceremony, the couples hands were bound together with a wide ribbon--where the term "tying the knot" comes from, is actually a celtic tradition. She also had a young girl from a dance studio do traditional dances for the guests.
Weddingstar has Celtic Accessories. Here is the link.
Up here in Canada, the Scottish Shops often will rent the tartans, and other traditional garb for a few hundred dollars. Maybe check with a costume shop as well, might be much less expensive. Check also at the Highland Games in your area, there are usually vendors that can get you set up.
I have seen wedding invitations with a celtic love knot design on them or a claddagh ring. Here is a link to one that Carlson Craft does
Best of luck!
