I’m not sure about the first two but the riding boots would be a cute touch!  People wear a lot of different shoes under their dresses and you want to be comfortable for that hike in the woods!

1.  What about saying take a stroll through the woods with us.  And then have an enclosure card that says Please feel free to dress however you please but note that the ceremony site is a short hike.  Bring your tennis shoes for the hike and dancing shoes for the reception.  We had a friend get married in a field and they did a small enclosure card that said to dress casual and expect a little mud on the boots.  They made it sound cute.

2. Not sure on the flowers from Costco. But I’ve seen those at Sam’s and they are nice.

3.  Wear what you want to wear!  And especially if you are having to hike boots would be better anyways.

1) I would put this information on an informational insert in your wedding invitation, or at least put this info on a wedding website and provide the link to it on your insert.  I don’t think there is anything wrong in explaining to people exactly what you posted here, so they know what to expect.

2) I’ve heard good things about fiftyflowers.com if you want to go the DIY route.

3) I think it’s a great idea!  If you really want to do it, don’t worry what others think!

For the first one, I would make sure that everyone attending will actually be able to make the walk.  I know that several elderly guests at my wedding would not be able to walk 1/2 mile there and back. 

And I think riding boots are fine…I’ve seen several pictures of brides doing that.

Is there a possibility of renting golf carts or some other from of minor transportation to the ceremony site (I only say this in case you have elderly guests or those that may not be ale to get around as easily)?  I would say just put the information on an information card in the invites warning them about the walk (I would be annoyed if I showed up in heels and had to walk half a mile lol).

I don’t know about the flowers….

I think the boots are an awesome idea!  Women do converse, customized cowboy boots, designer shoes, etc all the time!  Do what you want and have fun with it!

@shaydenise: I was thinking golf carts too!

Please please go with @vintage2010’s idea for question #1!!! It gives your guests the information, while making it a fun adventure! As a girl who is not even a little bit outdoorsy I’d be pleased with reading that in an enclosure card.

My attendants carried a bouquet of dark red carnations and they were beautiful and cheap!  For an October wedding chrysanthemums come in all sorts of autumn colors too.

Maybe include a cute little memo on the invitation itself or perhaps on a separate reception card about wearing your dancing..erm hiking shoes!

We used potted Home Depot orchids for centerpieces and red & white Costco roses and a few other mixed bouquets we picked up the day before for bouquets, bouts, etc.  Attached you’ll find pics (and those were just the mock-ups!).

Um boots make for great shoe shots–a lot of Bees wear boots!  You do what you want honey!
