Have you always pictured yourself getting married in an outdoor setting in the middle of the beautiful countryside? If so, then a traditional country wedding is definitely the one for you. Here are some great tips that can help you plan a superb country wedding.
Make The Most Of The Great Outdoors
There’s no point getting married inside if you want a true country wedding. Why not take your nuptials outside, so that you can make the most of the great outdoors! It’s important that you have some cover, though, so that your guests can get out of extreme heat or bad rain. So, it’s worth considering hiring a marquee. You can speak to a company like Fews Marquees about their range of marquees and prices. It’s important that you know how many people you are inviting to your wedding before you book a marquee so that you get on that will be big enough.
Plan Around The Weather
As most of your country wedding will be outside, the day’s weather could make or break things. To make sure that a rainy day doesn’t spoil your wedding, it’s important that you try and plan around the weather. More often than not, summer and spring will get a lot better weather than autumn and winter, so it’s always worth planning your country weather for these seasons.
Mix Up Your Footwear
As you will be outside for most of your country wedding, there is no guarantee that clean, white shoes will stay clean and white for that long! So, you should consider mixing up your footwear and going for something a little different. For instance, you could add some real fun to the ceremony if you and your bridesmaids were some country inspired cowboy boots. And at least a little rain and mud won’t spoil them!
Go For A Country Decor
To keep the countryside theme going throughout the day, you should consider going for a country inspired decor. After all, it’s always the little details that really count! You can make your own flower baskets for table centrepieces, and you could use cute hessian bows to add a bit of style to the backs of the chairs. Generally speaking, you can’t use too many flowers at a country wedding, so go big with your flower choices!
How country are you willing to go? Very country? Ok, then how about some toe-tapping, foot-stomping country music?! If you have a DJ playing at your evening party, you could ask him or her to stick to some of the biggest hits from the country world. Who can forget Cotton-Eye Joe?!
If you want something a little classier, you could organise some line dancing for your evening entertainment!
A country wedding doesn’t have to be too difficult to organise – all of the above tips should keep you right while you are busy planning your special day!
