Could you get the lining of his suit kitted out in his tartan?

Incorporated on the cake

As edging on your crinoline so that you catch glimpses when you move.

A garter in the tartan.

What’s his family tartan?

@Glasgowbound:  I would be inclined to go for the greener one – it will leave you with a lot more leeway in choosing other colours etc for the rest of your wedding. They are both beautiful tartans!  I just did a google image search using ROBERTSON WEDDING TARTANS and there were lots of lovely inspiration ideas.  One got me thinking about having it as a sash for your bridesmaids.

My garter was in our tartan, as well as my husbands kilt.  I’ve also known brides to wrap their bouquets in tartan, have tartan table runners, wrap your favours in tartan ribbon, tartan sashes on your chairs – really it depends how tartan you want to go – heres a pic of my garter which was also my something blue 🙂

@Glasgowbound:  :p Reading comp fail on my part. How about:

Tartan polish:                                  Tartan placecards:

     

Tartan cake tablecloth (replace the sequins with the family tartan):

Tartan ribbons for guests (so that everyone can feel like they are “part of the family”):

If you do tartan chair bows, I think this looks beautiful:

@Glasgowbound:  Right? I happened across it, and I am officially stealing the idea (but with lace). For the sashes, how about only putting them on yours and your husband’s chairs?

There is this place in Edinburgh which incorporates tartan in its wedding cake icing in the most amazing way -> http://www.toogoodtoeat.co.uk/ourtartanicing.htm

Maybe you could get something similar done? 🙂

@Glasgowbound:  haha deal 🙂  There’s so many little ways you can incorporate the tartan into your wedding without it being tacky – sometimes I think people go too far with it lol!  I love the bouquets tied with it thats lovely 🙂
