FI wants to wear a kilt...ON THE BEACH!

Recommended Posts

Okay, about 15 minutes ago, FI drops it on me he's thinking of having his grooms men..as well as himself wear kilts for the wedding. I forced a smile and said, it's your day too honey! Immediately walked in here and I'm freaking dumbfounded! First off, honey...your like 20% scottish, let's get real here! I'm like 5% English and I do not plan on having a freakin TEA PARTY instead of a cocktail hour. Secondly, I do think that if we were getting married in a traditional church or whatever I would be completely okay with that. But honestly, on a beachhuh.gif And his dad is his best man..and it's going to be hot, and god knows I do not want to think of what will be sweating it's you know what off underneath the damn thing.....

 

Am I being neurotic here??

lol. I think that's funny. Sorry! :-)

 

Are they going to wear the full she-bang with the nee socks and all. Boy that would be HOT (heat wise, I'm not thinking very sexy, lol).

Yeah, I'd think you need to be atleast 50% scottish to wear a kilt at your wedding. What about coming up with another way for him to celebrate his scottish heritage? Green beer? Clovers in your boquet? Sorry, I only know the st patricks day version of scotland.

I guess if he feels strongly about it - I say let him! But it doesn't seem very comfortable to me at all! Are you having an AHR, maybe he could wear the kilt there?

I think in order to wear a certain plaid, you have to be able to prove that you are of that clan. My stepdad got one in Scotland of his grandmother's clan. He wore it in a cruise and some scottish guy came up to him to make sure he knew something about it.

OMG...that's too funny. I'm sooo sorry hun. I know you should want to honour your FH's feelings about what he wants to wear on his wedding day but to be honest I think if it were me I'd beg and plead for him to not wear the kilt. I would go as far as saying I don't find kilts on men attractive at all and does he really want to turn me off on our wedding day.

Oh dear. How can you tell him that you think its a bad idea? Because you've undoubtedly (if you're anything like me) all but dictatated everything thus far, and now that he wants to add his two cents, its not like you have a right to cut him off. Ugh.

 

But, I'd let him know that maybe you're not fully behind the kilt thing, and bring up a few reasons - heat, what plaid, the real significance of kilts (do some research first), etc.

 

Maybe you can dissuade him (because it sounds like its a bit of a random thought to him right now), but I'd act fast before the kilt thing takes hold.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
