futureMrs.Owens:  Def sounds like a country wedding ho down.

I think it flows together for sure. My FSIL did something very similar last fall, all of the GM and the G came in on quads. As long as your wedding represents you and your FI I think it’ll be perfect!

Congrats on setting a date and picking a theme!

It seems a little mismatched, and if that’s what you’re going for, that’s great!

Here is a picture of chocolate brown w/ black tuxes, it seems a little dark for me, but it might be perfect for you!

when you say shell bouts, are you talking shotgun shell bouts, or like actual shells? I first pictured actual shells and that would seem weird with an outdoorsy/country wedding.

I think camo vests could be really cute, but I do think there are classier versions such as :

vegetables lining the aisle could be okay or weird for me? pumkins and squash would be okay, while other not so fall vegetables would be a little strange for me.

All in all, just remember that it’s your wedding, and no matter what you do SOMEONE will have something to say about it. So do what you love!

futureMrs.Owens:  I like it except for the hay bales. They get uncomfortable after a while.

Can I come?!  Sounds fun…THe brown and black though…I don’t particularly like those colours together, especially after seeing the photo a PP posted.

LOVE IT!!! Depending on what area of the world you’re from make sure you take the weather into consideration, have umbrella’s, blankets, bug spray, sunscreen etc available  for guests…. CAREFUL with bugspray on yours and the BM’s dresses.

If you have any elderly/physically handicapped people coming have chairs instead of the hay bales set up but have them labled for those people only.

Check out pinterest, theres tons of “tips” on there for problems that might come up.

GOODLUCK!!

FI and I are invited to a wedding this weekend that is pretty much your theme! However, I have a bridal shower that afternoon and won’t be able to make it. He is still going, as she’s a co-workers of his and will be going with another co-worker and his wife.

I know that guests were asked to come in jeans and sweatshirts. The ceremony is outside at a friends house, and everyone will be sitting on haybales. The reception dinner is something smoked on a grill along with some sides. There is no dance, but rather yard games… and BYOB.

I know the guys in the wedding are wearing jeans, and I’m not sure on what she is having her attendants wear – but I’m sure it’s something casual.

futureMrs.Owens:  sounds like it would all go well together. I would just make sure to somehow tell guests to bring an extra set of clothes for the mud events.
