    my family doesnt have there own tartan. i was thinkin of using my dads old regimental tartan of the argyll's and sutherland highlanders. its very important to my family as my dad, his 2 brothers and my grandad and were all in the same regiment.

    No idea my dress is red :)
    I'd guess green would go quite nicely, as long as it was a dark green. You could ask your girlfriend to go with you to help you pick she knows best.

    If it would make your family proud then wear that. I can't see it mattering if you tartan matches the dress to be honest, it's not an episode of 'What not to wear' :)

    Go for a Blackwatch tartan, it's easily available and looks the business.

    I've no idea if that will compliment your missus' dress, she can easily wear a different one if not. ;)

    Not just women in Scotland, girls from all over love them, wore one to a wedding in Italy and I was beating them off! American girls love them too.

    If it’s a hire kilt I would wear a pair of boxers, you never know who was wearing it before you. If its your own then true Scotsman all the way!

    My favourite tartan has to be Earl of St. Andrews, this pic doesn’t really do it justice but it looks the business.

    I have a kilt, and any time I've worn it, it's got a lot of attention. Wore it to my cousin's wedding and almost upstaged the groom, as everyone was well into it. Some Dutch couple kept taking pics of me, it was crazy. At my end of uni ball, there were quite a lot of people wearing kilts, but people still took notice. Bit weird having a South African lad grab my arse to see if I was going traditional, but there you go!

    My wife loves men in kilts, so was well made up that I got married in one. More recently, my brother has started going out with a girl who also loves kilts, so she wants him to borrow mine one time. Might let him, so long as he takes care of it and doesn't get goodness knows what on it :eek:
