That’s so awesome! I think the kilt is very sexy and manly!

Can’t wait to see your recaps. 🙂

That is awesome! I love kilts. I attended a wedding where all the groomsmen were in kilts! They all looked handsome!

That’s really cool! I told Fiance that he could wear a kilt if he wanted (since he’s Scottish) but I don’t think he wants to. Smart of you to use that tartan though, the colors are so nice together! My Fiance family tartan is not so pretty (yellow AND red AND green AND blue? Not so great all together, especially when yellow is the dominant color…)

@Scc6a: Is that the only tartan associated with the name? My fiance and I had a long chat with our kiltmaker and there were at least 25 tartans that our two names linked to.

There’s usually a Modern, an Ancient, a Muted and a Hunting variation of any major tartan and quite often further variations such as Dress (as in formal dress rather than what we ladies wear). It gets quite complicated, but any name with one tartan will probably have a lot more.

Here’s the one my fiance will be wearing (with a blue-grey tweed jacket and a gorgeous powder-blue jacquard lining).

@SpecialSundae:Sounds like your Fiance will be looking awesome! I especially like the sound of the powder-blue lining, that will look great.

Also, you have a good point–there is a hunting version that I’m aware of that is much more attractive. It looks like this:

If he doesn’t want to do the kilt, we could always incorporate in another way–maybe a ribbon around the bouquet? Anyway, just brainstorming here, but it sounds like there will be some handsome men in kilts getting married soon!

@Scc6a: He’s bwwn really enjoying the process. We had loads of different swatches of tartans, tweeds and linings at home for him to dither over.

My FH is also wearing his family tartan.  I was not thrilled about the idea, but have come around to it now. 

His groomsman are wearing black kilts (as my girls are in black dresses).

We are using the family tartan for the cake table cloth and on the girls flowers.

Should be interesting to say the least. 🙂

I’m so excited for you guys to be using kilts!! Fiance put the kabosh on that since he’s not scottish at all and i’m only a little.  BUT I did find hair ribbons in our family’s plaid to tie to the flower girls dresses and to wrap around my bouquet.

Omg we’re doing the kilt thing too! I’m totally excited about it. but no its not controlling my colour scheme. He’s gonna wear his family one (if we can afford to get it made for £700! since its not commonly rented out) or the Scottish national one, which is easily available to rent, really just depending on how he feels at the fitting and if he wants to keep it forever.  But he’s changing into a dashing tux in the evening xx
