Scottish Weddings
Customs & Traditions

Luckenbooth Brooch
A Scottish love token, often made of silver and sometimes engraved or encrusted with glass and crystals. The brooch was exchanged by a couple when they became engaged, symbolising their promise to marry. The brooch has two hearts intertwined with a crown on top.

And a Sixpence in her Shoe…
“Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in her shoe...” A sixpence hidden in the bride’s shoe was meant to bring good luck and is a tradition that is still practiced today. In the Scottish borders, a sprig of heather in the bride’s bouquet also symbolized the same!

Blackenings
A fun tradition that might still be enjoyed on a Scottish stag today is that of “Blackenings”! This involves the groom being captured by his friends, stripped of his shirt before being tied up and ‘blackened’ using ash, soot, treacle, flour and feathers!

As if not bad enough, the groom is then subjected to further embarrassment and paraded around the town accompanied by his friends making as much noise as possible, to draw as much attention as possible to him!
