If you would just like to include Celtic symbols on your invitation, you should first consider their meaning. The number three is important to Celtic culture and represents a combination of forces.

  • Arwen – these three lines symbolize the male and female, with the third representing the balance of these two energies

  • Spirals – they are one of the most ancient symbols and represent internal and external spirituality as well as the flow of energy.
  • Triple spiral – a symbol of female power, it represents transition and growth.
  • Celtic knots – these endless designs represent the eternity of love, life and nature

If you’d like to be more specific to the Celtic nations, here are some ideas:

  • Ireland – the color green is very important to this country’s symbolism
  • Wales – love-spoons, a traditional gift from a man to his lover, are inspired by Celtic designs, especially endless knots
  • Scotland – what about a touch of tartan as a background to your Celtic symbol
