Western Wedding

Bride and Groom

To get a western feel, use fonts like the ones seen on "Wanted" posters. Dull colors add to the effect.

Small floral print sundresses are perfect for the bridesmaids. Mix and match, and add cowboy boots to top it off.

Have the groomsmen wear brown vests and cream shirts. If you wanna go all out, add cowboy hats!

Who needs a floral bouquet? Get original and use dried wheat for an untraditional look.

For the ceremony, use bails of hay for seating. Have the ceremony in a barn, forest, or field for beautiful scenery. Using old barrels adds to the western look and feel.

Place Cards
Attach each place card to a horse shoe or put them on old carriage wheels for a fun seating arrangement.

Guest Book
Have a picture printed of the happy couple and cut it into pieces. Have each guest sign the back with a message and then have them hang it on a board to put the picture together again. (You can number the back so that people know where each piece goes.)

Mix christmas lights, chandeliers, and candles with wood, hay, and iron for a beautiful western feel. Use natural colors for the table settings and decorations.

Old barrels make great table bases. Put a few next to each other with a piece of unfinished wood on top to create a cool table.
