Irish couples are waiting to wed

It looks as though couples on the Emerald Isle are waiting to say "I do."

According to IrishTimes.com, weddings in Ireland are as popular as ever, but the average ages of brides and grooms appear to be on the rise.

In 2007, more than 66 percent of guys headed to the altar were over the age of 30 - that's up from 42 percent in 1996. Brides are aging at a similar rate - 28 percent were over 30 in 1996, climbing to 52 percent in 2007.

Perhaps couples these days are finding it smarter to wait - but are they as intelligent with their wedding decor as they are with big life decisions?

Using contemporary square glass vases is an affordable and classy move that will allow you to re-use and re-fill with flowers, plants, stones and water pearls.

Personalized wedding fans will also be appreciated by guests for their effortless style, especially if the wedding takes place on a balmy, hot day. Couples can even have hand fans monogrammed or printed with their wedding programs for an interesting way to remember the day.
