Western weddings can be anything from really fun to really classy depending on what it is that you want. If you are interested in western weddings, you'll realize you can couple a lot of western elements with your personality for a truly one of a kind wedding. Western dresses and tuxedos can be a great start to your very own western wedding, and where you go from there is really up to you.
Western weddings can be fun if it coincides with your way of life. If you live a western way of life with horses, cows, or a farm, it's fun to infuse your wedding with the way you have chosen to live your life. Planning a western wedding will also come very naturally to you so there will be no regrets or cheesy or dated pictures later on! If you enjoy living this way and want to implement the style into your wedding, why not?
Western dresses can be a lot of fun to shop for when planning your wedding. The dress really sets the tone of for the whole wedding, so shopping for your western wedding dress should be a priority. Shopping for a western wedding dress is no different than shopping for any other wedding dress, you'll need to hit the wedding shops first to get an idea of what you like. If they don't have anything western enough, you can always hit your local western clothing store to see if they can specially order a western wedding dress for you. You can get something really fancy with beads and fringe, or something really simple; it all depends on what you'd most like your wedding to be like. The fancier the dress, the fancier the wedding and vice versa. Once you select your wedding dress you'll be ready to move on to the other elements of your western wedding.
A barn or a farm can be a great place to plan your western wedding. The smell of the hay and the outdoor setting can be the perfect setting for your western wedding. Whether the location belongs to you or someone else, it's great, because it can require little or no decoration at all. If you want to decorate, you can easily decorate with hay bails, cowboy boots, spurs, wagon wheels, and even wagons. If you want something a bit fancier you can mix wild flowers, lace, and even a bit of tulle with these items for a decidedly western wedding with a classy touch.
When selecting entertainment for your western wedding, think about sticking with your western theme. A live country band would be a great option as they can provide additional ambience to your setting as well as great music to dance to! Remind all your guests to bring their dancing boots to your wedding celebration!
For a fun western tradition consider having the bride and groom arrive at their wedding on horses. Guests will get a kick out of this and it will bring a traditional and even romantic feel to your big day. Having the bride and groom arrive in this manner will add even more to the big day, not to mention you could get some great pictures from this type of arrival, too!
Western weddings can be as traditional or as untraditional as you'd like. Whatever your reasoning for a western wedding, have a lot of fun planning it so that both you and your guests can enjoy your big day!
