We are having a very country western fall wedding. I am wearing boots as well as my girls and he and his guys are going to be in jeans. So the atmosphere of the wedding is very casual. I am also on a budget. My worry is that my wedding doesn’t have enough elegance. How do I make it look like a wedding instead of a barmwarming without breaking the bank? Any suggestions girls?

Have you looked at any blogs that have done country weddings? There are a lot of neat ideas out there. I don’t know what your set up is but one is having hay barrels for the ceremony seat but cover the top with fabric.
I also like using a neutral table cloth with a couple different colored patterned napkins.. maybe in a plaid or paisley. Use wildflowers as bouquets. We actually had a western party once where we took children’s cowboy boots, painted them and stuck flowers in them like a vase for the centerpieces and it was really cute. You could use horseshoes somewhere in the decor also.
If your doing a country wedding it is suppose to be relaxed. I wouldn’t worry too much about the formality as much as making sure everything is cohesive with the look you want. You want things to pull together well and not look random.

Check out some of the Blogger Bee’s recaps. Several of them had country chique weddings. I would also check style me pretty. They have alot on there also. If you are looking for inspiration photos, check projectwedding.com.

Also you can include some things for guests to do like anniversary cards (cards for people to sign that you will open on different anniversaries 5, 10, 15 etc), homemade photobooth, a creative guest book, games in the yard like horseshoe, croquet etc,

You might check out Bakerella’s wedding, it was more rustic chique, but it was stunning.
