Mad about Plaid.jpg

We have fallen in love with plaid - tartan plaids, to be specific. Steeped in history, these colorful patterns traditionally identified the wearer as belonging to a specific Scottish clan. But you don't have to be Scottish--or make your fiancé dress up in a kilt--to incorporate the rich beauty of tartan plaid in your wedding day. The warmth of the wool fabric makes tartan plaid an ideal material for a winter wedding in particular.
