    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 beach 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.

              i think he should really wear the kilt at your AHR if you have one....I agree with the previous posts :)

                I don't have any real advice- but your post made me laugh out loud- for real...your FI sounds hilarious! Definitely would make a good story- hehe....

                  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.
