Choose a location that sets the tone. For this style, a beautiful barn or ranch house is going to fit the bill.
Decorate your truck. Add a Just Married sign or drape your truck with lights for some after-hours smoochin’ and great photo ops!
Serve your guests picnic style with big banquet tables outdoors. Let them fill their plates with fresh fruit, delicious cheeses, chili cornbread, tacos, potato salad, and barbeque.
Wrap a rope around your cake. Or, decorate it with bright southwestern colors.
Design a rustic arbor. Decorate it with fresh or dried flowers in bright, beautiful colors.
Add cowboy hats to your wedding fashion. Traditionally won by the groom and his guys, all guests are welcome to bring their cowboy hat to a country style wedding.
And don’t forget to wear your cowboy boots! There is nothing like them for dancing the electric slide, the double D, and the Cowboy Cha-Cha.
Get the band to play country music. From folk to bluegrass to country western, let your guests kick up their heels to oldies but goodies and new songs from the country scene.
Roll in the hay. Or, just get your photo taken in front of it.
Dress up your dogs. Add a bowtie to your furry friend and watch your guests smile.
And let the animals roam. Getting horses in the picture can make for a uniquely country touch.
Ride an electric bull. And please be careful!
Set up a big bonfire. Sit around the campfire with friends, drinking beer and singing songs.
Get your portraits taken out under the stars. An experienced wedding photographer will have everything they need to take a photo that captures the night sky. Be sure you choose your photographer carefully, to get all the shots you want of your country style wedding.
