Scottish Wedding Trends
The latest Scottish wedding trends
Whilst many of us have had our wedding days planned since we were 6 years old, there are always new ways to plan and prepare for the big event. So from the latest fashion advice to tips on saving money and sustainability, here are some recent Scottish wedding trends to help you plan the perfect day…
Wedding fashion trends
Check out the latest bridal fashion trends of 2023! We’re seeing ball gowns, separates and mini dresses. So whatever your style, you should be able to find the perfect wedding dress. For bridesmaids, the trend is towards mixed tones and shades. So you may choose to have your bridesmaids in different colours and textures, in styles to suit them individually, but that tone together beautifully. For the groom and groomsmen, the kilt never goes out of fashion here in Scotland. Here are some of the latest trends for Highland groomswear.
Sustainability is an important consideration for many people when putting on a special event, whether big or small. We are all becoming increasingly aware of the impact humans have on the environment. So, we’ve put together these green, sustainable wedding tips and ideas, to help you plan a more eco-friendly wedding in the Scottish Highlands. Here, we cover choosing the right venue, shopping locally and seasonally, recycling and re-using, off-setting carbon emissions and more.
