This season the catwalks have been awash with Tartan and its still making a statement in a big way on the high street, and personally for me I love it.

I am fiercely proud of my Scottish roots and have been known to dabble in a wee bit of tartan wear myself.


For a Scottish Wedding there is nothing more lovely than celebrating your heritage in some small way.

While going wild with tartan could be seen as overwhelming,  a few well chosen touches can accentuate.


So here is a few ways you could use Tartan in Weddings –

Tartan Ribbon could also be used to tie Favour boxes, to accentuate the Wedding Cake, as an addition to floral buttonholes or as wrap on the handle of your Wedding Bouquet.


Consider using tartan cloth to bind when used in a Handfasting Ceremony.


You can use Clan Tartans or whatever ties into the colour scheme of your Big Day.

For an additional Scottish touch add Thistles to bouquets, centrepieces etc.


I hope this feature on Tartan in Weddings has given you some inspiration for celebrating your heritage or just incorporating Scotland into  your own Event.
