If you and your fianc� are trying to arrange your wedding day, but so far have not been able to agree on a location locally. Thus, you decided to draw up lists of the places that you would like to get married, and if both of you agreed on a place, then that would be the location. While comparing lists, you both realized that a Western wedding is what you both would like.
Western Weddings Can be Local!
The two of you might have decided that a Western wedding would be the best idea for the both of you, but that does not mean that you have to trek West to have one! After all, your family and friends will want to be at the nuptials, and a destination wedding is much more expensive for everyone.
Thus, it is important to remember that a Western wedding can be planned in you hometown area. The first thing that you need to do is decide on the sort of wedding you wish – are you and your fiance going to have a ceremony of a certain religious affiliation, or will it be a non-denomination ceremony?
When you have the ceremony sorted out, you can turn your attention to working out how to decorate for your Western themed wedding! To add to that overall western feeling, it would be a good idea to hold the reception in a local barn – many such places are available for rentals for just such occasions!
Once the barn has been selected, the next step is to consider the Western wedding decorations that you would like. A popular such decoration is corn husks, which can be tied together and placed throughout the barn.
Another idea is to think of Western colors, and include those into the usual wedding decorations. For example, the tablecloths could be brown, and the favors, instead of wedding bells, could be a pair cowboy boots tied together!
Of course, one of the main decorations of the reception is the wedding cake. So, why not have the top of the cake be a cowboy and a cowgirl, with the cowgirl roping the cowboy? This is just on of the many suggestions that you can include into your Western wedding reception. I’m sure you can think of many more.
And, you can have your master of ceremonies dress up in a cowboy outfit instead of the usual tuxedo.
