The Queen officially opened the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow last night and so it seemed appropriate to dedicate today’s worldwide wedding inspiration to bonnie Scotland.
Scenery couldn’t get much more atmospheric than that of Scotland, with its breathtaking landscapes of the rural Highlands, the exposed and windswept lakes, the grand and magnificent urban architecture and the elegant castles fit for a fairytale. Sounds wildly romantic right?
Whether you’re Scottish at heart and want to incorporate your heritage into your big day, or the brooding, sullen skies and the rich culture of Scotland would create the perfect destination location for you, you’ll find all the Scottish wedding inspiration you need right here.
Include family crests, kilts, bagpipes and earthy, autumnal hues (inspired by tartan colour palettes) into your wedding theme for a traditional feel.
Add touches of The Scotch Thistle and Scottish Heather to bouquets and boutonnieres or use Whiskey barrels to display floral arrangements to exemplify rustic influences. Of course a Scottish shindig wouldn’t be complete without Scotch Whiskey favours, or a whiskey bar, some serious Ceilidh music and dancing, or Highland dancing!
