To Scotland With Love!

Jump to last reply

My handsome man of Scottish descent proposed to me and I said Yes! We wish to marry in Scotland or Ireland, where my family has roots. We are leaning toward Scotland as neither of us have been to Scotland, but both have traveled extensively. The idea of Scotland is most appealing because of the family connection and the ease of travel for the family and friends we shall bring to the event.

We are planning the event for November 2013. Yes, we realize it may be cool, but, we are an hardy lot. Some members may choose to journey on to warmer parts of Europe after Scotland, but, we do desire the UK for our wedding.

We journey to Paris for a break soon and may stop for a short time to start the process of finding the right location, the small village or area that calls to us with an atmosphere of Romance. We thought we would start in Edinburgh!


Appreciated input of:
Beautiful places we must see for a week of travel around Edinburgh.
Is there another area we should consider other than Edinburgh?
A charming small church for our ceremony
Scottish customs unlike those of the States
Small villages where we could host our family members that they may enjoy a walk in the village, auto in the near sites and scenery, short day trips could be taken, castles visited and so on.
Cultural sites
Scenic

We welcome your thoughts and suggestions as we begin our journey to Scotland with Love!
