Scotland could run out of kilts this summer with many suppliers already closing their books due to record demand.

With two years of delayed weddings now able to go ahead, along with this year's planned ceremonies, the iconic ceremonial dress is in short supply meaning the unthinkable could happen; Scotland may actually run out of kilts!

David Dalrymple of A1 Kilt Hire said, "We have never seen such a high level of demand for kilt hire. The pandemic has created a record number of wedding bookings for the summer; some people have been waiting since early 2020 to tie the knot, there's also those people who cancelled in 2021 plus couples who had always planned to get married in 2022 all trying to secure a kilt for their big day. Everyone needs one at the same time and although we've managed to accommodate all requests so far, others have already reached their capacity for the whole summer."

A culturally significant garment, the kilt is an iconic piece of Scotland's heritage. For a wedding ceremony, tradition dictates that the groom and groomsmen pair their kilt with traditional eveningwear, complete with jacket, waistcoat, shirt and bow tie.

With shops in Edinburgh, Dundee and Glasgow plus an online ordering service, A1 Kilt Hire offers a wide range of classic tartans and jacket styles suitable for both daytime and evening weddings and has a last-minute hire service for those who are struggling to find a kilt.

All A1 Kilts kilts are crafted from eight yard heavy weight 100% wool and are made in Scotland by the very best kilt maker. Full kilt hire starts from £29 with rental periods of two to three days. To find out more, visit: www.a1kilthire.co.uk
