How do you plan a Scottish theme wedding when you don’t know much about your Scottish heritage or the wedding traditions of Scotland or the Celts?

There are hundreds of high quality websites offering advice and merchandise for your wedding. Their merchandise is beautiful, useful, and creative.

But the gowns are mostly off the mark, the flower girls are too sophisticated, the floral arrangements are too modern and sleek, while the decorations are too polished.

Most Scottish theme weddings are a little simpler, a little less sophisticated, and in many cases, a lot more fun!

We’ve waded through the sites, finding the little touches and big splashes that proclaim your Scottish heritage on your wedding day.

Just picture this…

You’ve been dreaming about your Scottish theme wedding …the wedding gown, bridesmaid dress, and flower girl dress all exceed your dreams.

The piper announces your arrival as you step down the aisle on your father’s arm. The bagpipes skirl as ‘Highland Cathedral’ trills over the guests, engulfing them in your wedding music.

With each stride forward, your veil drifts gracefully behind, held in place with a wedding tiara of Celtic knots.

Each bridesmaid, carrying a Saltire, has walked down the aisle to the strains of Celtic music.

The flower girl, in her Scottish tartan flower girl dress, has strewn rose petals in your path. The fragrance of the traditional roses drifts upward as you tread on the petals…
