If you or your soon-to-be spouse comes from Scottish heritage, having your groom and groomsmen wear a kilt with the family tartan is a unique way to infuse the winter’s coziest pattern.


Plaid Decoration

Adding some cute rustic details to your reception decor is a subtle way to add plaid to your wedding. Pairing it with your initials can give a further personalized touch.

Plaid Dress

Plaid Shirt

If you really want to lean into the rustic vibe that plaid offers, pairing your wedding dress with a plaid shirt or shawl can be a perfect way to keep you warm.

Not a fan of incorporating that winter pattern into your cake so obviously? Why not go with a dessert that looks inspired by it? Plaid-inspired desserts, like this drizzled cheesecake, are a great middle ground that stick to your theme.

Plaid Shirt

Plaid Shirts

Instead of having your groomsmen wear ties with the colors and patterns of your rustic themes, why not go a bit bigger with patterned shirts? It’s the perfect rustic touch if you’re straying from traditional tuxes.
