Good Luck Charms
Many Scottish wedding traditions are popular worldwide but some remain exclusive to certain areas of Scotland. We’re here to make sure your marriage is lucky through true authentic experiences.
In certain regions of Scotland, people hide a sprig of white heather within the bride’s bouquet to give her good luck and happiness in the marriage. Similarly in northeast, Scots believe placing a sixpence in the bride’s shoes on the day of her wedding would bring the marriage luck.
The wedding scramble is still a beloved tradition in parts of Scotland. As the bride steps into the car, her father throws a handful of coins for the children to collect. This is believed to bring about financial good fortune.
Other Scottish traditions occur at various parts of the day, including jumping the broom, a grand march and ending the reception with everyone in a circle, holding hands singing auld lang syne. Let Tartan Weddings share these traditions and incorporate them into your big day.
