I never saw any kilts in Ireland or North Ireland. I did see a wedding party in Scotland wearing kilts. It’s native Scottish dress. Although a native of Scotland did tell me the ones who wear kilts most often in weddings are the Americans lol.

MrsSapphire:  no, there is nothing satan about kilts!  I am catholic and my fiance is wearing a kilt in the church (which is catholic).  The priest knows this and has no issue with it.  If it were a “satan” thing there is NO way the church would be ok with him wearing it.   Sorry, it is simply ridiculous and honestly very disrespectful to his culture.  Kilts are Celtic (worn by Irish, Scottish & Welsh).  I’m 3/4 Irish and have never ever heard such a thing.   Is your mother from Irish, Scottish or Welsh decent? 

If she is truly concerned, any priest can put her worries to rest.  Our priest is actually from Ireland.

Your mom is being ridiculous. Don’t pay attention to her. The only thing that would give me pause in your situation is if your fiancé isn’t Scottish or of Celtic heritage, wearing a kilt at your wedding could come off a bit costumey/cosplayish. If you guys are comfortable with that, go for it.

EDubbs:  Sorry.  British humour.  Unfortunately the post didn’t give my slightly exasperated expression, eye roll and raised eyebrows as I said it.

MrsSapphire:   I am very curious to hear the answers you get.  Who knows, maybe there is some historical thing I don’t know about.  However, in today’s world there’s nothing satanic about it to my knowledge.

Your mom is pulling things out of her butt because she thinks kilts are weird. That’s all it is.
