Another symbol which is also intricate in its displaying is the Dara Celtic knot, the word ‘dara’ coming from the Irish word for ‘oak tree’, this specific tree considered to be sacred and at the same time oak tree being the carrier to deliver messages in the lives of Druids. The oak tree symbol represented by three-armed spirals signify power, wisdom, destiny, strength, endurance another reason to be included in the Celtic edging for wedding gown of a bride ready to commit herself to the man of her life, this symbol having within itself the exact features that the act of marriage carry along with the wedding ceremony.
