Western Wedding Themes - A Popular Choice

Apr 26, 2008
One of the most popular wedding themes here down in the south are cowboy weddings. I know personally two or three in my family, and plenty among family and friends who have wanted a western wedding theme. Not only for rednecks, cowboy themed weddings can be charming, and a more casual wedding choice for everyone involved. If you've decided that you want to have a cowboy themed wedding, here are some great ideas to help you incorporate cowboy wedding ideas into your wedding.

Cowboy Wedding Invitation Ideas

If you are having a cowboy themed wedding, you'll want to let people know in your wedding invitations. Include something like, "wear your jeans and boots", or "wear your best cowboy duds" to let people know that it will be a casual cowboy wedding and they won't come dressed up and feel out of place. There are lots of wedding invitation themes out there, and plenty of them are cowboy themed, so that shouldn't be a problem for you. If you like, with the casual wedding theme, you could always print something off of your computer. It would be a little cheaper for you, and with a casual wedding, anything goes.

Cowboy Wedding Ceremony Ideas

If you have access to an outside area for a wedding, such as a field, barn, or ranch house, this works the best with cowboy weddings. If you are getting married outside, rent some benches and decorate modestly. Fill a small washtub with your wedding programs and/or wedding favors. You can still have your wedding dress and groom's tux if you like, (there are more Texan looking tuxes out there as well if you like). For a more cowboy looking wedding party, have the groomsmen dress in cowboy shirts with pearl snap buttons, blue jeans and boots, and a hat or bandanna if you like. For flowers, really anything works. Daisies are great, but roses are still classy.

Cowboy Wedding Reception Ideas

Inside a barn or other large room is the best place for a cowboy wedding. Decorate with hay bales that people can sit on. If you want to have tables for a dinner, use red gingham and see my article on Themed Table Centerpieces for more ideas on Western centerpieces. If you have dancing, consider square dancing lessons for at least part of the dance part of the reception, if not all. If you are having a wedding DJ, have him play only country music. If you like, you can try to hire a nearby rancher or someone to teach people how to lasso.

Cowboy Wedding Favor Ideas

Definitely use your imagination with this one. You can fix up a great "cowboy snack" such as trail mix, beef jerky, or some other treat, and wrap them all in bandannas. The possibilities are endless.

Cowboy weddings make for a great casual wedding, and people really do have a lot of fun at them. You won't typically find any of your guests uncomfortable at the wedding, and they'll definitely remember them more than the hundred weddings they go to where everything is the same.
