@Glasgowbound:  If you decide to do ribbons on the table, you don’t even have to sew them on. You can simply lay them out in a pattern you like.

If the tartan ribbon is expensive, you could buy ordinary solid color ribbon and duplicate part of the tartan  with the way you lay out the ribbon.

Or, you could use a runner in one of the colors from the tartan, and edge the runner with the ribbon.

@Glasgowbound:  Is FI’s family still in Scotland?  It may be cheaper for you to order from the UK, get it delivered there and then they can send in one bulk everything to you, OR keep it until you arrive in Scotland.

I just had a look and http://www.scotlandshop.com/c-5-for-wedding.aspx has some ace things!  Fantastic shoes for the bride and groom – that would do for such a cool picture!  Ribbons are a really good deal on here as well.

Its such a shame you can’t convince Fiance to wear a kilt – I think men look amazing in kilts!!! Very rugged and manly lol 

How about doing a tartan ribbon on your favors? Are your favors going to be traditionally Scottish?

@Glasgowbound:  Well, kilts obviously. But otherwise you listed all of my possible suggestions. And ermm. Thistles at place settings. NOT on chairs, that’s just asking for it. 


Oh! For favours, you can stick a little jar of shortbread at every table and trim it with a tartan ribbon.
