Scottish Wedding Traditions - Creeling the Bridegroom

An ancient Scottish custom was called “creeling the bridegroom.”

  • This custom required the bridegroom to carry a large basket (a creel) filled with stones on his back.
  • He had to carry this weight from one end of the village to the next and continuing carrying it around the town until his intended bride would come out of her house and kiss him.
