    The Covenanters were forced by persecution to hold their religious observances outdoors in remote locations and, in the circumstances of the time, would most likely be armed in the event of attack by their persecutors. I cannot believe that weapons would have played any part in their services as suggested in this OP then, and most certainly not now.

    For my first wedding (not kilted, tartan waistcoat, in church) my basket-hilt was used to cut the cake at the reception held in the adjacent fellowship hall. There were no weapons in the church.
    For my second and LAST wedding (kilted, outdoor) I had my sgian dubh, but no dirk or sword present. Our ceremony included a Native American hand washing ritual, embracing my bride's Lumbee heritage.

    As ctbuchanan already suggested much earlier in this thread, pinning of the tartan is appropriate once wedding vows have been exchanged.
    I am not aware of any tradition involving a sword at a Scottish wedding.

    This thread has hung on for over then months now and the OP long ago decided to skip using the sword in the service, instead relegating it to cut the cake, which I suppose is not that unusual although a dirk would serve just as well. Can we let it die now?
