If you are looking through the various wedding kilts that are available and struggling to choose one for your special day, then look no further. We are here to help! Your wedding day is probably going to be the most important day of your life, so it is important for your you to select the best kilt for this special occasion.
Wedding Kilts – Which One to Choose?
If you are looking for a modern and fashionable look for your wedding, we would recommend a kilt with a tartan featuring your family tartan, or a tartan with close links to Scotland, such as the Black Watch tartan. The Black Watch tartan is probably the most popular Scottish kilt tartan for a wedding. If you have some Irish blood, we would recommend that you take a look at the various Irish kilts for sale.
In terms of kilt jackets, Argyll jackets (such as those featured in the photo above) tend to be more popular for weddings at the moment compared to traditional Prince Charlie jackets. Although, a tweed jacket may provide a nice edgy look, but then again, it could be seen as a little informal for your big day!
A nice clean white shirt with an Argyll jacket, with a ruffled neck tie, can provide a sharp look. A bow tie is also an option, but this may be more suited to a Prince Charlie jacket. It is recommended that you wear a formal sporran with your kilt, in order for your outfit to remain as authentic as possible. There are so many different sporrans available these days – but selecting the right one can add that extra pizzazz to your kilt.
Dark kilt hoses (kilt socks) are recommended, although white socks are the traditional option. To be honest, it is really up to you as to what socks you choose, as there is no right or wrong answer!
Ghillie brogues (kilt shoes) which are dark and well polished will look fantastic. It is possible to add little accessories such as a sgian dubh (pronounced “skiandu”), which is inserted down your kilt sock. We would recommend a real sgian dubh, as opposed to a cheap plastic option. Although, make sure if you are having your wedding abroad that your sgian dubh is not included in your hand luggage if you are flying, or you could be in real big trouble and miss your wedding!
Another possible look to consider…
This example is a man wearing a modern style kilt, with a formal sporran, a 5 five buttoned waistcoat, complete with a Prince Charlie jacket (as opposed to an Argyll Jacket in the previous example). You will also noticed there is a wing collared white shirt with a ruffled tie. While not overly common, you could wear a sash (which matches the tartan of your kilt), held in place by a brooche.
It is entirely possible to mix and match these examples to create your own unique combination. If you need help while browsing the various wedding kilts that are available, please do not hesitate to contact us, as we are on hand to help you select the best wedding kilt for your special day.
