@Harrisonlake:  Kilts are their own statement, especially if he’s wearing his family tartan, however you shouldn’t let any fear of clashing stop you from choosing colors that you love and want, because face it, you’re going to be in white, he’s going to be in his kilt and the rest of the colors just aren’t going to interfere….

@Harrisonlake:  Congrats on getting engaged! I think that taking the colors from the kilt would be awesome to kind of center your theme around. That would be really neat for a fall wedding. I decided when I first started planning not to worry about the colors being matchy matchy but really centering things around a theme, that way I could include all sorts of different things. So maybe something centered around the kilt theme, just a thought 🙂

@Harrisonlake:  Which tartan is it so we can look it up? I really don’t think his kilt has to be a primary consideration when choosing colors.

When we got engaged DH was all about wearing his kilt.  His is dark with blue and green.  So I just decided that we would use blue and green.  He ended up wearing a grey suit at the wedding instead though but I still liked the colours.  I would try to incorporate something from the tartan.

Is he planning on having the GM wear kilts as well?  Or just himself?  I think Navy or hunter green would look nice given the colours in the kilt.

@Harrisonlake:  Go for blue or green!  We’re using my FI’s tartan, too (Blackwatch/Campbell — love it!).  Have fun!

I think this is something that will be separate from wedding colors, it’s like having a pink wedding and the men wearing their military dress, it doesn’t look weird, it just is what they wear. You should plan the wedding per what you actually want, the kilts will stand out alone as separate from the theme imo.

@Harrisonlake:  A kilt is pretty standard (in it’s own sense, like a classic black suit, or a white wedding dress) so I don’t think you need to go out of your way to match it with anything.
