Ok I am not having a very country wedding, but I did go to one recently and my bff/MOH will have a very country chic wedding someday!

She is in LOVE with sunflowers, and I think something about them looks very country 🙂 They are beautiful, and since they can be kind of big you can always have bridesmaids carry just one or a couple and they make a statement!

Even though a lot of brides are using mason jars, they definitely still work! Think of cute ways to dress them up.

Twine and burlap. Dressed up or prettified with lace. And cowboy boots!!!

If you are going to have your guests sit on haybales, PLEASE make sure you cover them with pretty blankets or quilts. I was at a wedding this past June, and they didn’t have anything over the hay bales. Their ceremony was short (and quite beautiful) but scratchy! So scratchy!!!!

The venue that they had their wedding at was at their own farmette! It was SO beautiful. The whole wedding had a down home country vibe feel, probably because in large part it was at their own home farm… also, they served a comfort food, bbq style buffet. SO yummy. And my Maid/Matron of Honor who wants to have a country wedding… also going to be at her home! They have gorgeous views of fields out of their backyard. (She wants a more intimate wedding so that will work for her lol.)

I hope any of this helps!

Oh, P.S… the wedding that I went to in June also felt country because a fair amount of her guests showed up with stetsons and cowboy hats 🙂

ours was a souther BBQ wedding!  the rehersal dinner, ceremony and reception all took place at the same B&B.  Its an old plantation house built pre civil war, its just amazing!!!

The ceremony took place in a pecan oarcherd, and the reception was in an old carriage shed, there was an old silo attached which is were the bar was set up!  We had lights and candles everywhere it was so beautiful and magical 🙂

we kept the tables simple.  The bridesmaids had watermelon daisies, wore watermelon dresses!  It was beautiful, simple and elegant.  I will have to up load more pictures from home.  These arent the best ones to show how beautiful our southern wedding was!

all the drinks were served out of mason jars!!

well- my wedding was country fried to the core— I don’t have all of my pro pics back, but here are a few for ideas!

shoe shot:

our toasting glasses!:

cake topper was a mason jar:

my garter my maw maw handmade with her lace and pearls from her wedding dress.. also my something blue:

we did the string lights:

We had it at a city park that has been redone from old rustic buildings and barns.

The bridesmaids wore boots and carried a mixture of wildflowers, and my dad wore his cowboy hat and  boots– he looked so cute!

 

 

he said a quick prayer with me before we walked down the aisle:

we draped burlap and tulle around the pavillion where we stood in front:

we lined the aisles with shepherds hooks, mason jars, ivory tulle  and babys breath

 

Sorry for all the pics! We also used a variety of country songs. The parents/g-parents walked to:

– “Make You Feel My Love” by Garth Brooks

Bridesmaids and Groomsmen walked :

– “Free Intro” and then into ” Free” by Zak Brown Band

I walked to:

– “Memories of Us” by Keith Urban

We exited to:

– “Honeybee” by Blake Shelton

We also had a BBQ catered reception with pulled pork, chicken, brisket, baked beans, potato salad, cheese bread, mac and cheese, coleslaw, tea and signature drinks centered around Jack Daniels Whiskey

For the reception we also had DJ lights and top 40 songs mixed with country and we also used country for a lot of the “special” things like dad/daughter dance, line dances and cake cutting:

I took strips of scrapbook paper, and doily punched the top/bottom and wrapped it around soup/veggie cans and put flowers on them. I put them on the beams of the barn. You can google soup can flowers for ideas.

My guests are drinking out of Mason Jars with Handles. If my budget was bigger, I would have gone with the boot shaped Mason Jars. They are super cute.

I would tell you to google photographers that have done country weddings.

I eloped in the TX hill country…I’m a city girl, but my hubs grew up in the country. So we figured this would be fun for us! Though we didn’t have a reception, we added country touches. My bouquet was made of purchased wildflowers that I wrapped in burlap and a ribbon. We both wore cowboy boots. I made a burlap bunting. I brought an old quilt and we used that in several photos.

 

Here is the sneak peek from the photog with some of the ideas.
