Scotsmen In Love… and Other Cool Weddings

Sometimes it’s fun to go wandering about on other wedding blogs and take a look at some of the great weddings they feature. Here are a few of my faves from the past week I’d like to share.


First up is a delightful wedding of two handsome Scotsmen in kilts named Chris and Eric, featured on A Practical Wedding.

Kilts, more kilts, a pretty outdoor spot, yet more kilts, people dancing Gay Gordons (and that really is a dance, in fact Mr. Twistie and I did it at our wedding, too) and lots of pretty pictures would have won this wedding a spot on the list anyway, but I love this quote from the grooms most of all:

If you ever wonder how many people love you and how much, have a wedding. You’ll know.

You know what else? That’s absolutely true.


Truly Engaging features the lovely wedding of Beverly and Daniel.

Why did I pick it and why did I illustrate it with the cake? Well, because that picture sums up the awesome attitude of the couple. A few things went wrong at their wedding. The weather didn’t cooperate with an outdoor reception, and the cake topper went missing. Never mind. They just took a flower here and a flower there and created a simple yet lovely topper of their own that fit perfectly with the relaxed feel of the entire wedding. There are some good shots that might inspire you to DIY projects that are both simple to carry out, easy on the wallet, and truly effective, too.

Also? There are a couple great shots of the groomsmen being totally badass. Check it out.


Speaking of badass, when was the last time you went to a wedding where the groom went crowd surfing? Check out the pics and story at Offbeat Bride of Danielle and Gonzalo’s fabulous, fun, bilingual wedding. I’m just sorry I missed that party.

The wonderful thing about a wedding is that it can be so many different things and still be a wedding. Take some inspiration, run with it, and have fun!
