    Music? Food? Readings?

    You could incorporate heather (less prickly than thistles!) into your floral displays.

    Maybe include some Celtic symbols into your stationery.

    My partner is also of scottish heritage and we're considering using the family tartan as I'll be taking his name. He won't be wearing a kilt but we're thinking of using the tartan in finer details throughout i.e. on signage, stationary & the bridesmaids throws on their shoulders etc. Love the thistle idea above!

    We’re having bagpipes to welcome guests and I designed a luckenbooth (love token in Edinburgh) to use on our invitations. We are also having thistles. Love the tartan idea!

    Hello Smiley smile

    It's so nice to see people incorporating their Scottish Heritage in their weddings! As a Scot some things that aren't mentioned above is as part of your ceremony you could take a drink from a quaich (Scottish cup/bowl with 2 handles usually silver) I think this normally happens after vows but before the kiss. Another thing you can do is find your tartan in a long ribbon or sash and do the hand fasting which is when the tartan is draped over your hands and then you both pull and it ties the knot, this usually happens right before the kiss too Smiley smile

    Including a bagpiper to welcome guests and having a ceilidh for some fun Scottish dancing sounds perfect.

    Scottish heritage encompasses a rich tapestry of traditions, history, and cultural contributions that span centuries. From iconic symbols like tartan patterns and bagpipes to celebrated figures in literature and philosophy such as Robert Burns and David Hume, Scotland's heritage is vibrant and influential. The country's landscapes, including rugged Highlands and serene lochs, inspire deep-rooted connections to nature and folklore. Scottish cuisine, marked by hearty dishes like haggis and Scotch whisky, reflects a culinary legacy shaped by local ingredients and centuries-old recipes. Scotland's heritage continues to captivate and influence global perspectives on culture and identity.

    Hire a bagpiper? You could also incorporate thistles into your decor. See if you can find the Tartan to match your partners surname, every Scottish family have a unique one x
