I like to think that there’s a little bit of country in all of us… no matter if you’re from the city, suburbia or the wild, wild west. Who doesn’t love to have a good time? And, weddings should definitely be a good time!
When you add a western flair to our country wedding theme from last week’s inspiration, you will most likely see ten gallon cowboy hats, boots, lassos, and even horses or other livestock. Think about the last time you went to a rodeo, and visualize all that dust, drawl and drama transformed into a true country and western wedding theme!
You can go all out for this home-on-the-range themed wedding or just rope in a few favorites like the boots, hats, denim and, yes, just good old-fashioned barbeque. I recently attended a wedding where they served barbequed chicken, ribs, and corn on the cob! It was such a reflection of the couple and of course delicious.
Find a bride and cowboy cake topper like singer Jewel and her cowboy husband Ty Murray did. And, how about some fiddle music ~ that sweet sweet sound of the bow gliding across the strings one moment, and the next the end of that bow moving every which direction and smokin’ fingers hopping wildly from note to note! Can a person really resist getting up and dancing? I think not!
