More and more couples are getting married in the Wild West style this year; and it is one real exciting theme for a wedding.
Here are 5 reasons why we, at Best for Bride say Yeehaa! to the wild west theme.
1.It is a formal theme with a casual vibe
The Wild West theme allows you to have a wedding that is both exciting and fun, but classic at the same time. You can choose to keep it as formal as you like, or opt for an entirely casual wedding reception. Is there another formal theme, where the décor elements can be straw and wildflowers and still be appropriate? Here, the rules are flexible, and this will keep it exciting for your guests, as they aren’t certain of what they can expect.
2.The décor at Wild West Weddings are totally unique
Wild West weddings allow you to play with faux or real antler displays, throw in leather details, sip beer from copper mugs and have attendants and groomsmen frolic around in cowboy hats and boots. This is a chance to bring together a range of textures like burlap, straw and wood, and give them a classic finish. It transports us in time to a whole other place, and this is part of the charm. Despite the various details, the theme can be executed at indoor and outdoor venues, alike. The rustic elements that are highlighted at these weddings are always interesting, simple to do and easy to pull off.
3.They are as versatile as can be
One interesting factor about this theme is that no two weddings can possibly be alike. Whether you choose to get married at a ranch, in a garden or at a hotel, you can use this theme. Dinner can be elaborate or laidback, as you can opt for either a buffet or a plated dinner. Coming to wedding dresses, Wild West brides can choose full-length lace gowns or short frilly frocks with a colorful underskirt and not worry about which suits the theme—because they both do. Brides and grooms can sport cowboy boots and hats, and easily match their attire to the theme.
4.The photographs are one-of-a-kind
How else could it be? After all, how often do we see real cowboys and their brides in real life? When you have a wild west wedding, the rustic elements in the décor and classic style of dressing create the perfect blend for spectacular photographs. With a beautiful setting, and a couple in love, it is almost impossible to not have a great photo album.
5.Wild west weddings are most romantic
If you always envisioned your wedding to be one that is like a dream, it has to be a wild west wedding. Imagine getting married in a scenic location, dancing to jolly old country tunes and riding off into the sunset (or, in this case, to your honeymoon) with your real-life hero….could it be more romantic?
So, what do you think? Is a Wild West wedding for you?
