Embrace Tradition: The Timeless Elegance of Scottish Weddings

Wedding bells are ringing!!

Do you want to tie the knot forever this spring/summer in Scottish Traditional Way?

A Scottish wedding is a celebration filled with tradition, music, joy and most importantly vibrant expression of love.

The first thing you think about when you plan a wadding is attire. When it comes to traditional wedding, you might not want to miss a single little thing.



The bride in her resplendent white gown walking down the aisle to the tune of bagpipes and the groom might don a kilt in his family’s tartan with each design carrying its own meaning and history. The groom usually pairs his kilt with a formal white shirt, a set of waistcoat and jacket. The jacket can vary depending on the formality of the occasion, ranging from a simple tweed jacket to a more formal Prince Charlie jacket or Argyle jacket.

Kilt accessories such as tartan fly plaid matching with kilt, plaid brooch, cufflinks, sporran, belt, buckle, kilt pin, sgian dubh, kilt hose, flashes and ghillie brogues are the little touches to complete the groom’s wedding look.  The bride can also put the clan sash as the same groom’s family tartan on her shoulder.


To tie the look together, the groom might incorporate additional tartan accents into his attire, such as a tartan tie, bow tie, or ruched ties. These elements help to showcase the rich heritage and cultural significance of the Scottish kilt.

Guests often join in by wearing their own kilts or kilt hire or any formal attire.


Scottish cuisine shines at weddings, with dishes like haggis, neeps, and tatties making an appearance. The act of drinking from the Quaich can also be seen as a metaphorical toast, where the couple raises the cup to celebrate their union and express their love and dedication to one another.  Whisky is a staple drink, with toasts and speeches often accompanied by a dram or two.

Last but not least, Scottish weddings are known for their lively receptions, which can last well into the wee hours. Music, dancing, and merriment abound as guests celebrate the newlyweds. Men tend to take off their jacket at Ceilidh Dance time to be able to move easier. A little tip by us when you choose your waistcoat and jacket size is to move around when you are in waistcoat during the try-on. Or else you will miss the highlight of the wedding with your tight waistcoat.
