A Scottish Wedding in the Borders of Scotland

Scottish weddings have long been popular with couples who are of Scottish heritage but their popularity is growing worldwide.

There is something mystical about the Scottish highlands and Celtic symbols that attract admirers from all over the globe.

Many couples are now deciding to have a Scottish theme to their wedding, even if they are not getting married in Scotland, and Scottish wedding invitations are an essential part of the special occasion.

Everyone can now add that touch of Celtic tradition by sending Scottish wedding invitations. There is no set format for a Scottish wedding invitation but there are some traditional aspects that you can incorporate to add that authentic feel.

The most obvious of these is Scottish tartan. Each Scottish clan, or family, has their own unique tartan design associated with them and no Scottish wedding invitation would be complete without a piece of this Scottish heritage.

It is worth researching some of the other Scottish wedding traditions before deciding on the final design and content of your Scottish wedding invitations.

Any wedding invitation is intended to give the guests a feel for what type of event the big day is going to be. Perhaps you want to include some Gaelic script, or incorporate the Celtic knots into the perfect Scottish wedding invitation.

The thistle, for example, is the national flower of Scotland and is often seen emblazoned on crests and flags.
The cross of St Andrew, with the white cross on a blue background, is well-known as the national flag of Scotland and can often provide the inspiration for the colours of your Scottish wedding invitation if you are undecided.

Top photographers can be expensive and you should "cut your coat according to your cloth".

Guests always carry their own cameras with them and they should be asked to email their photos to you. File sharing sites like "Dropbox" can also be useful for this type of purpose, maybe more suited to the more technical among us for opening an account and for signing in and uploading / sharing your files
