- Select the Scottish Highland
dress for you, the Best Man, Groomsmen, ushers, and other key
members of the wedding party. Determine whether you want
formal or informal attire. For formal attire select either
the Prince Charlie jacket and vest, or the Argyll (Kilt)
jacket. The Prince Charlie jacket and vest, with its satin
lapels and tails, is more formal than the Argyll jacket.
The Argyll jacket is cut like a blazer, and is more comfortable
than the Prince Charlie jacket and vest. It is made of the
same fine Barathea wool, and has the same silver plated buttons
however. Some Grooms choose to wear the Prince Charlie
jacket and vest, and request all others in the wedding party to
wear the Argyll jacket, to distinguish the Groom from other
members of the party. Next choose the kilt tartan you, the
Best Man, Groomsmen, and ushers will be wearing. Some Grooms
prefer to wear their family tartan, while others want to
coordinate the colors in the tartan with the bridesmaids
dresses, and other colors selected for the wedding. Some Grooms elect to have everyone in the wedding party wear the same
tartan, while others leave the selection of the tartan to the
individuals attending. Note that in Scotland it is common
for everyone to wear a different tartan, usually their family
tartan. For those who do not wish to wear a kilt, they may
consider wearing a tartan cummerbund and bowtie.
