My fiance has a Scottish heritage. His family has been in Canada for several generations, so it isn't very prominent (he isn't wearing a kilt, for example), but I was wondering if there were any Scottish ceremony or reception traditions people know of that we could include. I've looked online a little, but haven't found anything that's jumped out at me.
We are also Christian. It will be a Christian ceremony, but I'm trying to think of some unique ways to incorporate our beliefs (through symbolism, etc) into the ceremony. I've seen where, after the pronouncement, the parents and/or best man and maid of honour, have tied the bride's and groom's hands together with ribbons (each colour symbolising a different aspect of their commitment to each other). We've thought of several things that make the reception unique to us, and I'm sure the readings and songs we choose will make our ceremony unique, too, but if anyone has any of those "little touches" kinds of ideas that they've seen or used themselves (and don't mind passing on!) I would love to hear them.
