"Would you like to be buried with my people?" will take you on a light-hearted walk down the memory lane of Irish wedding traditions. Lifting the veil on the past, this book will acquaint the modern bride and groom with their rich cultural heritage. From matchmaking to speed-dating, strawboys to gatecrashers and jaunting carts to limousines, the face of Irish weddings has changed dramatically over the centuries. Irish wedding traditions are here traced back to their roots and explored, as well as updated for the modern Irish bride and groom. Connecting the old with the new, both romance and marriage in olden-day Ireland are described alongside various traditions, proverbs, and the fun and frolics that accompanied the couple up the aisle.
