If she asks again either tell her he’s wearing one and it’s not open to discussion, or just say you don’t know what he’s wearing. It doesn’t affect her life one bit.

Huh……I’m going to take a wild guess and say that Irish Catholic men have worn kilts to their weddings? I was raised Catholic and have never heard your mom’s concerns, but I’m certainty no expert.

This is silly. Your mom’s statement is not legitimate. It’s your wedding and your Fiance should wear what he wants.

cdohertyx3:  I would be telling my parents that if they can’t even be bothered to provide some supporting evidence for their crazy ass opinion then me and my Fiance wouldn’t be taking any notice of them. What a stupid thing to randomly say.

cdohertyx3:  No. This is ridiculous. I would try not to pass along hurtful things your parents say about your husbands heritage. There was no reason for you to tell him what they said, knowing he wanted to wear a kilt.

I would just ignore this craziness.  You do not have to give reasons or back your choices up to your parents.  If your Fiance wants to wear a full body leotard and you are okay with it then that is all that matters.

Also, as an aside, is it just me or – is a man in a kilt a bit turn on!? I love love love a man in a kilt.

how absolutely bonkers. They come from traditional Scottish dress.  over here in British Isles its not unusual for Scottish chaps to wear their kilts for weddings and formal black tie events, usually in the tartan on their clan/family name. The Celtic link travels to Ireland and Wales and there are Irish and Welsh tartans too. 

I think you’ll just have to roll your eyes and do whatever makes you and your husband happy.

I am a conservative Christian, and I have never heard anything like that. There are a lot of things in this world that are evil, but I do not think kilts are among them.

What absolute nonsense. Your mother is looking for the word Scottish, not satanic.
