    I thought I would start a thread on Scottish Wedding Traditions (maybe I missed one that had already been created, so if I did, sorry!)

    My fiance is Scottish and we wanted to incorporate that heritage into our ceremony. So far we are doing the following. I would love to hear other ideas as well!

    - Kilts- my fiance will be in his family tartan and the groomsmen in the colors of Scottland
    - Handfasting- we will probably do the handfasting ceremony within our ceremony. This is where they wrap the couples hands together with the family colors.
    - Luckenbooth Brooch- Traditionally, the groom gave this brooch to his bride on their wedding day. Then, when they had a child they wrapped the babys blanket and pinned it with the brooch to ward off evil spirits.
    - I also found these handkerchiefs with the Luckenbooth and had one embroidered for me and my fiance for the day of the wedding:

    - we are using tartan fabric to sew our own ring pillow

    Ok- I think that is it for now! I would love to hear other creative ideas!

      Oh! I also think I will have a bagpiper meet us at the airport when we get home since we can't find one in the Dominican Republic!
