There’s something about a country wedding that is so disarmingly charming and appealing. But shoddy planning and lack of creativity could well turn out to be a dampener. So here are a few tips and suggestions that we believe would help you bring out the inherent charm of a country wedding effectively.
The venue obviously needs a countryside backdrop to make it authentic. A barn would most likely work well as a venue. You can accentuate the settings by improvising on guest transportation. You can get the wedding party to the venue via a hayride. You yourself could arrive on a horse drawn carriage.
Décor and Furniture
The décor sets the mood for the day more often than not. Stick to hues that are easily identifiable with the country side, preferably yellow, golden and cream. Checkered tablecloth, candles, lanterns etc would make the location ambient.
The countryside usually witnesses very high temperatures. Three piece suits and gowns would really get uncomfortable to wear for both you and your guests. Asking your guests to wear lighter and casual materials such as khaki, linen, denims etc would be a good suggestion if you really want them to enjoy the day to its fullest.
This one’s a no-brainer but still well worth a mention. A country wedding with reggae music doesn’t quite sound right, does it? Arrange for local music artists to provide live country music. Ask them to play a few originals but also include hit numbers of country icons like Garth Brooks, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and Dolly Parton among others.
With these suggestions concerning the 4 major aspects of a country wedding, and a few of your own, you could rest assured that neither you nor your guests would ever forget your country wedding.
