A converted barn is the ideal setting for a country wedding. But a beautiful field or backyard can also suffice.
Whatever the setting, wild flowers, natural colors and cute rustic details will help set the stage for a kickin’ country wedding.
Country wedding attire is as varied as the couples themselves. Some bridal couples want to wear traditional wedding attire and have a formal country themed wedding.
Other couples like a more casual approach and implement buffalo plaid, cowboy boots and cowboy hats into their wedding attire.
Instead of the traditional flower basket, some brides have their flower girls pull petals out of a cowboy hat. Ring bearers can wear outfits that match the groomsmen and carry a rustic sign that has a clever message printed on the front or could carry the rings in a cowboy hat to match the flower girl.
Seating can be as formal as fancy fabric covered chairs or as casual as bales of hay with lace or burlap seat covers. If you are hosting your ceremony and reception in the same location, think strategically about how to arrange your seating so that the space can be quickly converted from ceremony to reception.
If you want to go with an even more casual feel, provide pretty blankets so guests can comfortably sit on the grass for the ceremony. Serve guests their evening food or appetizers in small picnic baskets. Allow guests to sit on the blankets and have an old fashioned picnic.
Set-up corn hole games and encourage guests to play in teams. End the evening with a little line dancing or full on hoedown.Make sure that your song list includes all your country favorites.
