I did some writing for Highlander Web Magazine on Higland customs and
there is some information in the articles on weddings. They still
might have them in the archives. Two books which might help
"Scottish Customs for the Cradle to the Grave" by Margaret Bennett
and "Scottish Customs" by Shelia Livingston. Both books will be
included in the our new Internet magazine, Scottish Radiance, in the
book shelf section for sale. The first issue is due out June 1 and
you can not register to get a advanced letter of what is coming in
the first issue at http://www.helping-hands.org/radnew.htm.
If you need more wedding information before June 1, 1997 email me and
I could probably get you the books.
Two resource books I used both of which have Scottish customs in them
