@laekna: A big thing for favours here is Scottish tablet. It’s like a crystallised fudge and is incredibly sweet. Also, why not have a selection of Scotch single malt whisky available at the bar?

I’m assuming when you say that you don’t want a “Scottish” theme that means no ceilidh dancing? πŸ™

@laekna:  I’m from Edinburgh. Other side of the country, albeit only a couple of hours’ drive.

 My husband is from the north west of England (so not Scotland, but yay north west!). Going through the visa process is actually what inspired me to write for weddingbee, so I get where you’re coming from. πŸ™‚

I think it would be neat to have scottish sweets passed during the reception (like passed hors d’oeuvre ). Every holiday we spend here I always try to make sure we have things that he would have if he were at home. So, christmas crackers, yorkshire puddings, pavlova, banoffee pie and sticky toffee pudding have all made appearences at our gatherings—are there similar equivalents? Could you change the menu to have a Scottish nod?

Mrs D’orsay: Is your husband from Cumbria or not quite that far north?
