The origin of the Celtic Knot
The celtic knot is not just an attractive design, it is a unique design often used to embellish the celtic wedding dress. Our ancestors created it as a symbol of eternity - the eternity of life, nature and love. Look closely at a celtic knot and you will see that it has no starting point and no end. Truly a design made to endure time and represent the lives and loves now embarking on a life together. Many Brides add the celtic knot to their wedding dress as an embellishment on the bodice.
The traditional white wedding dress is of Celtic origin.
The white wedding dress was made popular by Anne of Brittany in 1499. Before that, a woman wore her best dress. In Roman times, blue, not white represented purity. Todays Celtic wedding dresses bring the old world traditions and blend them with contemporary styles.
