Celtic Knots would be an excellent design to use on your Irish wedding guest book. They would look especially nice embroidered on your Celtic wedding gown. Originally Celtic knots did not really have any meaning assigned to them. They were just a form of decoration. I think they are really cool decorations though. Now people like to have meanings for the knots. The Celtic Love Knot is one used at weddings today. It is suppose to represent two lives intertwined in undying eternal love. It doesn't get any more romantic than that, does it?
The Irish Harp is a good theme to use on your Irish wedding guest book. It not only is a symbol for Ireland it is also a trademark used by Guinness beer. In the old days the Harpist was considered the aristocrat of all the Irish musicians.
I think it is almost a requirement in an Irish themed wedding to use Gaelic. The Irish take great pride in their native language. You can look up some meaningful Irish phrases, sayings, blessings or proverbs to fit in with your theme. You can show the English translation or not. Gaelic can be used on your Irish wedding invitations, too. If Gaelic is a little too much for you then you can always use Celtic script, in English, and still keep your theme.
