This gorgeous summer wedding was personal, full of sunshine, full of friends and family, and came with a western styled look. Between the horse drawn carriage and the backyard setup overlooking the valley and the mountains, it was a stunning setup.
For other people who love the western styled wedding look, draw some inspiration from these photos and feel free to go over some of these ideas to help you decide on what you want to do!
Venue: Consider a rustic barn or a western-style ranch as your wedding venue. You could also choose an outdoor location, such as a beautiful meadow or a scenic canyon, or even a backyard can be turned into something beautiful!
Attire: For the bride, consider wearing a lace or embroidered white dress with cowboy boots. For the groom, a western-style suit or a shirt could work, and don’t forget the cowboy hat!
Décor: Use hay bales, hats, and boots to decorate the ceremony and reception areas. You could also incorporate western-inspired elements such as horseshoes, antlers, and vintage lanterns.
Music: Hire a live band to play country music or have a DJ play your favorite western tunes. You could also consider hiring a square dance caller to teach guests traditional dances if you want to go all out!
Food and Drink: Serve western-themed food such as barbecue, baked beans, and cornbread. For drinks, you could consider serving local craft beer or homemade root beer for the little ones.
Transportation: Consider renting a horse-drawn carriage or a classic western-style stagecoach to transport the wedding party or the bride as she goes to the aisle! Here’s a link to a company that you could use in Northern Utah to accompany you with a horse-drawn carriage!
Overall, a western styled wedding can be a fun and memorable way to celebrate your love and commitment. Be creative and have fun with your planning!
