Houston Tartans

A selection that can be grouped for a wedding color theme. It’s built around 'Houston'~ which I just plain like. The four setts could be grouped for a wedding color theme.

The background is an old gold color, but viewed as a whole pattern, the color looks like a shade of kiwi. And from a distance, the eye sees the green stripe as teal.

This combination of sett patterns would be a bold and unusual color-way.

Houston Tartan #WR2290
Australian Tartan #WR611
Austrailian Tartan #WR612
Ottawa Tartan #WR2421

  • WR#2290 would be good for the bride’s attire ~ as a dress or just the skirt or bodice.
  • Australian WR612 or Ottawa WR2021 would make a smart underskirt, if the overskirt were to be a la Polonaise of the main tartan.

  • Ottowa would make a nice sash, rosette trim, a butterfly train, an overskirt on the bride’s attire, or ribbons in flower streamers.

  • The bridesmaids could wear any of the complimentary tartans, with an underskirt or overskirt of the main tartan.

  • The mothers could wear white or colored lace bodices with skirts and overskirts in any of the complimentary tartans.
