Plan a Western Themed Wedding
Whoever said that planning a wedding had to be serious and stressful?
With a western themed wedding, you can experience a whole new idea together
while making it as unique as you want it to be.
For a western themed wedding, location is everything. Think about having
your wedding in an “old west town”, which are located throughout the
Midwest and usually offer wedding packages at a cost. You can also find
an open prairie and use tents and backdrops that you have designed yourselves.
Or just decorate an old country church and reception hall. The important
thing is to find your own style and preferences and then incorporate
them into your wedding.
Decoration will be your visual focal point for this type of ceremony.
To create the ambiance of a western themed wedding, use gold bows, which
can be found at Christmas time. You can also use hay bales for guest
seating, drive away in a horse drawn carriage and use country music
or western movie themed music at your ceremony.
Once you have the ceremony details worked out and you know for sure
this is what you both want, began thinking about your attire for your
western themed wedding. Watch old western movies to see what brides
wore, such as heavy fabrics, long sleeves and a lot of lace. For the
groom you could go simple with blue jeans, a brown vest and a brown
jacket, of course worn with a hat, boots and spurs. For the bridesmaids,
western themed weddings are known for keyhole, dark dresses usually
worn with lace up boots. Instead of having them hold a big bouquet of
attendant flowers, hand-make headbands adorned with flowers and ribbon.
To decorate your guests’ tables, use your imagination to create the
western theme. Buy cowboy hats and line the insides with fresh flowers
and baby’s breath, or buy old cowboy boots at a thrift store and let
sunflowers dangle from the tops. Adorn small items on tables with things
like sheriff’s badges or replicas of old medicine bottles.
Incorporate your western theme even on the dance floor by using kerosene
lamps or lanterns hanging from posts instead of the usual string lighting.
You can also hunt through antique shops and flea markets to find old
wagon wheels and wooden trellises, which can be lined with wildflowers
Another original idea for guests to enjoy your western themed wedding
is to have a corner of the reception hall set up for photos. Find western
clothing at thrift stores or western supply stores. And instead of a
dollar dance to raise money for the bride and groom, offer them black
and white western photos of themselves to take home as souvenirs. You
can pay your own photographer an extra fee to take the photographs.
While planning your western themed wedding, have fun and enjoy. The
more fun you have planning your wedding as a couple, the more memories
you’ll be making that will last a lifetime.
