All Irish weddings are organized with the presence of plenty of symbols that relate wedding couples to their traditions and the symbolism brought by these. The same goes for shamrock flower wedding favors that you plan to present as your gift of appreciation for your family and friends.
The symbol of shamrock flower has been around for more than 16 centuries when St. Patrick firstly introduced shamrock, the three leaved clover, as a reflection of the holy trinity: the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. This flower stands as well as a symbol of the three theological virtues such as love, faith and hope. Some might say, that clover comes from a farther origin than the 5th century, namely with the ancient Celts who revered this flower because of its three leaved presence.
These ancient people were very connected to nature showing a great sense of understanding its simplicity. As a result they have come up with all sorts of symbols (triple spiral, triskelion, and others alike) implemented in the interpretation of their beliefs and way of living. Celts have always found the number three as a component of the three important energies time, gods and balance, these ones being important for their people and the nature that surrounded them.
So, presenting your Irish guests with shamrock flower wedding favors, you will do nothing else but offering them with symbols of their tradition related to spiritual growth and well being. The other representation, the four leaved clover, is also considered to stand for good luck since the four leaves plant is rather rare. This symbol comes with a characteristic for each of the leaves: respect, love, health and wealth. And what other wishful thoughts are more recommended than this four leaves-clover that can be represented within your shamrock flower wedding favors?
