Kilts are often worn instead of a black tie and suit at formal occasions such as weddings. The kilt is a really flexible outfit and can be formal or informal and traditional or modern. The pattern of the kilt and the choice of jacket, shoes and socks can make a real fashion statement.
Bollocks to the info presented here....the kilt has been worn for millennia not since the 16th century....Hmmm thats interesting ....and to add to that tartan cloth has been found in ancient egyptian tombs....add to that that an ancient egyptian princess named Scota lent her name to the land that now calls itself Scotland...Fact.
A Kilt is for life, not just a wedding. I feel sorry for my future husband (and groomsmen) if he/they were not of Scottish or Irish descent....they are all still going to have to wear a kilt because this was always a proviso of mine for my future wedding - my husband at least, would need to wear a kilt at some point; whether it be at the wedding itself, the reception or both, hahaha.
