Kilts are becoming more and more popular as a choice for mens wedding attire so we thought we would do a little feature in this weeks blog.It is no longer rare for whole wedding parties to opt for kilts even if there is no Scottish connection.There was a time when we found the only groups interested in Tartans were Scotish people marrying in Ireland or Irish going over to the land of the thistle.

The history of the kilt can go back as far as the end of the 16th century. It was a full length garment that had an upper half that could be used as a cloak when you draped it over the shoulder and pulled up overhead.

The 11th edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica says the kilt is a Scandinavian word in origin; the word kilt comes from the Scots word kilt that means to tuck up the clothes around the body.

The kilt comes from the Norse settlers who had a similar garment and the Scots word derived from the Old Norse kjalta. When you were in battle, it was customary that you take off the garment or the kilt beforehand and set it aside.

The exact age of the kilt is still under debate.The earliest written source that definitely describes the plaid that was belted or great kilt comes from 1594. The great kilt is mostly associated with the Scots highlands but was also used in lowland rural areas. The widespread use of this type of kilt continued into the 19th century and some still wear them today.

For weddings the obvious attraction is that the grooms clan can be represented by his tartan of choice.Many stores can provide tartans that represent some of the more popular family names or clans but for a family that has an unusual name you might have to go for a more generic kilt.These would include household names such as Bonnie Prince Charlie,Modern Douglas and Royal Stewart.The groom can attire himself differently to the rest of the party or perhaps opt for his own family tartan while the other members of the party can all have a different tartan.At the end of the day it is all about having some fun so there are no strict rules and regulations.

Waistcoats for gay weddings

Different coloured floral waistcoats for the new couple


In a gay wedding, same sex couples have the choice to either dress in a complementary or contrary manner; whether the theme is formal or informal. Since, both parties are members of the same sex, it really doesn’t matter who wears the pants.!Some of the gay couples we have dressed have gone for safe options but when we write these blogs we like to show off our more daring suggestions.Not every gay couple is into jaquards and floral frock coats but if you are adventurous enough to opt for those kind of styles we would like to think we can cater to those tastes.Some of our Tziacco and Prestige ranges have everything from frilly retro style shirts to flowing diamante patterned long jackets.

For better or worse, there is no precedent for apparel at gay weddings. So, if you look at it in a positive manner, there are lots of great choices. Take, for example, the wedding of designer Narciso Rodriguez and his partner, Thomas Tolan. This handsome couple had a June wedding in New York; one wore a black suit with a skinny tie and the other wore a similar outfit in white. Or you can take the wedding of television celebrity Ellen Degeneres and movie star Portia de Rossi as another example. Ellen wore a vest, shirt, and pants- all in a pale pink, while Portia wore a pale pink gown. Still another example is that of Michael Kors and Lance Lepere, who both wore jeans and went barefoot when they were exchanging their vows of love.

If you must go with a designer, it is said that you cannot go wrong if you don apparel by Gucci, Prada, or Tom Ford. Although these labels cost a pretty penny, it’s fun to spend a little extra to get the day that you’ve always dreamed of. However, gay couples can wear whatever they like; anything goes, just like straight weddings nowadays.

If grooms would like a classic and traditional style wedding, a great option would be with a formal black bow tie and tuxedo. For brides who would also like to go the traditional route, there are many gown selections available from designers like Carolina Herrera, Vera Wang, Oscar de la renta, and Valentino. Whatever option you choose, it is important to note that wearing outfits from one designer is a great way to celebrate your union and individuality because it keeps the theme consistent.

Still, others believe that gay weddings should be unconventional. Style guru Simon Doonan wore a floral shirt with a Thom Browne jacket when he married his partner Jonathan Adler, back in 2008. In his opinion, being gay is a great way to express idiosyncrasy. In other words, a gay wedding is the best excuse to splurge on designer outfits without all the guilt.

Your gay wedding theme can be as unique and special as your union. This is the perfect opportunity to showcase your loved one for everyone to see. So, why not stand out from the crowd? Gay weddings are usually flamboyant and are the perfect excuse to go wild in a creative way.

If you would like to go the more conventional route, then perhaps, you should pick a more traditional and classic outfit and theme.A Silver grey suit in a finely tailored cut is a current favourite and this season also promises an abundance of blue. In a gay wedding, anything goes and there are many suits and accessories available in different shapes, styles, and colors to suit the taste of you and your partner.
