Traditional Scottish Wedding
If you have Scottish connections, you may want to bring some of that heritage to your wedding by adding in some Scottish wedding traditions.. The most well-known and recognisable tradition is that of a tartan wedding. If your family has its own Scottish tartan , The Little Wedding Company can make bespoke tartan products just for you. Or, you can choose one of our popular tartans and claim it as your own for the day.
Whatever tartan you go with, you can choose flowers to match. Some of the best matches are old-fashioned flowers such as sweet williams, wallflowers, and roses. For a rustic, wild feel, add thistle and salvia. And don’t forget to add a sprig of white heather. One of the most common Scottish wedding traditions dictates that a single sprig of white heather in the bride’s bouquet will bring luck and good fortune to her marriage.
Scottish wedding traditions are best suited to a winter wedding theme and your bridesmaids can be elegant as well as warm in rich and luxurious silk dresses. You can have short or long sleeves and for added warmth wear with matching wool cardigans. And to tie into the Scottish theme, bridesmaids and flower girls can don tartan sashes, while their male counterparts will look dashing in tartan britches.
Looking for something a bit magical for yourself? Wear our hooded cape in a strong colour over your wedding gown to keep you warm and ensure you make an entrance straight out of a fairytale.
Let the Little Wedding Company help you create a perfectly magical Scottish wedding – we can match the colours and textures of your tartan pattern to other aspects of your ceremony and reception, creating a beautiful and coherent theme for your special day.
Scottish wedding traditions are a lovely theme to consider, no matter where you’re having the ceremony so you don’t have to elope in Gretna Green to enjoy the warm aesthetic and texture of family tartan and age-old traditions!
