Ask the MB: Scottish Wedding

Ask the MB: Scottish Wedding
Q: My husband is walking his sister down the aisle and the groom/groomsmen are wearing blackwatch plaid kilts. Not interested in the kilt thing, but what about a blackwatch plaid necktie with his black suit? Thanks.

A: Nicole, your instincts are strong. That's the perfect nod to a tradition that's best left to real Scots.
