Scottish wedding style inspiration
Tomorrow the weddings team are jetting off to Glasgow to exhibit at The Scottish Wedding Show, inspiring this lovely collection of pretty that would be perfect for any Scottish or rustic wedding.
Decorate your wedding venue and tables with gorgeous products that have a slight Scottish feel or rustic edge. I’m a big fan of the Bucky The Deer Cardboard Trophy Head by I Love Retro – it would add a hint of whimsical wildlife to your venue and wedding day. Or you could place the Heart Twig Wreath by OG Furniture and Accessories about your venue or use to decorate the back of chairs. For a taste of heritage dining chic use the Harris Tweed Napkin Rings by Jock and Morag for your table settings and the Stag Place Card Settings by Vivi to display your guests’ names.
For wedding favours there really are no limitations. If you’re after something sweet and edible then the Heart Shortbread Biscuit Box by Shortbread Gift Company will be right up your street as they come in a selection of delicious favours. For something more obviously Scottish-related the Winter Woollies Pin Badge by Annon or the Handbag Mirror Wedding Favours by red berry apple would be ideal. Both are available in a number of colours and patterns so can easily be tied into your wedding colour theme. If you’re after rustic-styled favour packaging then the Set Of Ten Rustic Card Favour Boxes by Wedding in a Teacup are a lovely choice and will fit lots of treats.
Cufflinks are an easy way to incorporate the groom’s attire into your wedding day theme, whether it is a certain era or selection of colours. For a nod towards all things Scottish, Hannah Louise Lamb has a selection of intricately designed cufflinks that would complete any cuff. The Silver Wildlife Cufflinks are available in a number of animal designs and the Scotland Cufflinks have a beautiful matt and polished finish, (we have a set on our wedding stand this weekend so if you’re in Glasgow make sure you come and have a look). Other stag-designed cufflink choices are the Rutting Stags Cufflinks by Primrose & Plum or the Wild Stags Pewter Cufflinks by Wild Life Designs, both a great gift for your groom or the wedding party. And finally, for a classic pair with a twist, the Tweed Style Cufflinks by bethany athill are elegantly simple and made with a hand-woven fabric.
For the ladies, a touch of tartan can easily be achieved with gorgeous and creative accessories. Rather than a bouquet, have your bridesmaids hold an Anglomania Gigi Purse by Mademoiselle Bagatelles. They’re finished with a quirky skull and cross bone motif and are a perfect size to fit a small phone and essential make-up for touch ups throughout the day. Another option is pinning a Harris Tweed Yellow Brooch by breagha to the bridesmaids’ dresses for a splash of colour and rustic finish. Or you could incorporate them into a lovely hair accessory that your girlfriends will cherish forever after.
