a comeback on the runway this season, drum roll please... plaid! Yes
the pattern once worn by Britney Spears and Mel Gibson alike. Since
fashion is ever revolving, designers often look to the past for
inspiration, resurrecting said motif. So embrace your 1.0% heritage and
rock the pattern on your wedding day!
Scottish clan pride by incorporating your tartan (clan pattern a.k.a
plaid) in your wedding invitations! Give your guests a first impression
of your theme with these plaid invites.
You can carry your clan's colors throughout your day with these subtle plaid place-mats atop
natural table cloths. Plan a lavish banquet feast for your reception!
Seat your guests at community tables to encourage discussion and serve a
hearty dinner of rustic homemade bread with stew served in individual Le Creuset cocottes. Feel like a princess at court by treating your guests to a traditional Highland dance performance by Shot of Scotch!
I think of Scotland, I think of all the beautiful castles. Luckily on
Long Island we have the perfect setting for a 21st century Scottish
wedding, Oheka Castle! With
grounds that would rival most Scottish strongholds, what princess
wouldn't want a castle and gardens as a backdrop for their photos?
romantic would it be to see the bride gliding into the gardens at
sunset on the arm of her father, walking towards her dashing groom to
the sounds of "Scotland the Brave"? The NYC Piper comes
decked out in traditional garb and sounds absolutely amazing. It just
doesn't get more perfect than a bagpipe. I vote YES!
Onto fashion... This Vivienne Westwood gown
reminds me of Merida from the Disney movie Brave! The ivory grosgrain
corset with a silk jacquard organza skirt and natural waist nods to a
more historical look. I love that the dress is accessorized with a gold
belt, contributing to the Merida warrior princess look. Add to that a
lush natural looking bouquet in green tones, keep the makeup natural and
voila your Scottish princess look is complete!
you don't want to dress the men of your party in the traditional kilt
and epic free-flowing style of conqueror's like William Wallace;
desiring more comfort throughout the day, as well as a modern take on
men's garments? Not a problem. Try this Joseph and Feiss classic one button tuxedo from Men's Warehouse. Spice this tux up with feathered boutonnieres and a swatch of your tartan!
In the words of the clan Matheson, "Fac et Spera- Do and Hope". Bring your Scottish wedding dreams to life.
