Hello, hive! I’m so excited to be taking part in this new series!
In case you need a quick refresher, I’m the bee blogger who’s married to a guy from Scotland—yes, cute accent and all. We got married in Minnesota where I’m from, and that meant all of Mr. Sword’s family had to travel to us for the wedding. Luckily his family is pretty small and they were up for the trip, as were many of his good friends. Since we live in the USA and since the Scottish culture is so rich and beautiful, I knew from day one of planning that I wanted to incorporate as much of its traditions into our special day as I could.
We had a Ceilidh band at the reception (a staple at most Scottish weddings), we had a handfasting during the ceremony, and we had all the groomsmen wearing kilts.
