Although wedding season has come and gone, there are still many weddings coming with the rest of the year. Fall is a great time for couples to be joined into unity for many reasons. The weather is nicer, not so hot and humid. The leaves are changing colors, the stars come out sooner, and it’s a great setting for a western wedding.
A great thing about a western wedding is you don’t have to have your ceremony at a ranch or outdoor style setting (although that is a great location). There are so many ways to give your event that western feel because creativity with decorations goes such a long way. From whiskey barrel tables to hay bales as seating, adding horseshoes, or having your guest see you use your new family brand, the options are endless. Where ever you decide to say your nuptials can easily be transformed into your ideal theme.
Lace is a great go-to when picking a wedding dress for this season. It has a romantic feel and goes well with a rustic western theme. Paired with the right flowers, anything from eclectic to handpicked wildflowers will make a statement, add a tooled bouquet wrap and you have a solid look. Your groom will be easy, a cowboy hat, boots, and possibly a vest or belt buckle will easily suit your theme. Adding cowboy boots and hats to the wedding party’s attire gives a nice western feel as well. Turquoise jewelry is always a go-to add-on! A pop of color and a great aesthetic will make you feel fabulous.
A budget big or small can make your western wedding dream a reality. These simple additions to your day can achieve the ideal look without having to go to a ranch or farm or even break the bank. As long as you’re with loved ones and celebrating your love, your wedding will be amazing.
