Twists on a Traditional Scottish Wedding

Wedding twists to make your day unique

Every wedding is special, and there are lots of things you can do to put a twist on a traditional wedding. You can tailor many aspects for a more modern, personalised approach to your big day. Keep the traditions you love and ditch the ones you don’t. It’s your day! Here are just a few ways you can mix things up a bit, when planning your wedding in Inverness

LOVE the wedding season

With twists and turns on wedding traditions, there is a way to make every wedding unique to every couple and create one of the most perfect weddings in Inverness. So, here is a twist on the classic wedding cake. Couples are now choosing wedding dessert selections over traditional cakes. Lots of dessert choices leave guests happy by allowing everyone to get something they like. Especially popular are cupcakes on display. Still beautiful and close to the old tradition, but more selection for guests!

Say YES to the dress

The white dress is a little bit more of a risqué wedding alteration, however some brides are ditching this long held tradition of white dresses and opting for different colour choices, shades such as ivory and champagne. Brides a little more on the wild side have been donning peach, blush and light blue for an extra pop of pizzazz. Bring those jaws to a halt and create one of the most talked about weddings in Inverness.

Twist the tradition

Another twist that could bring the weddings in Inverness into the social limelight is laying down the law when it comes to electronics. Some will say they don’t want any disruption from the outside world on their big day and ask guests to turn off the electronics and let the photographer capture all of their special moments. Others are very open to the idea of spreading the love through social media by encouraging guests to take pictures and use apps such as WedShoots which helps collect and share photos from guests.

The Kingsmills twist
