You’re a country girl at heart. Along with your perfect wedding dress, you’ll be looking for the perfect cowboy boots to dance the night away in. Or maybe there won’t be cowboy boots — still you know that a country wedding under the stars surrounded by your nearest and dearest is the kind of magic you want on your special day.
“A country wedding is perfect for the bride or groom who enjoy spending time in nature and want to incorporate the natural beauty of the scenery into their big day,” says Virginia Edelson, founder and principal of the event planning firm Bluebird Productions.
Like the wide blue sky, or the golden plains, the country wedding theme has a big range. Depending on the couple’s tastes and vision, it might be set in a rustic or rural location, such as a farm, barnyard, ranch, or an outdoor garden. Or it might be held indoors at a sophisticated country club or lodge.
Country chic or country casual, you can start setting the mood for your big day with the perfect wedding invitation. Here are some examples of country wedding invitations from Shutterfly to inspire your personal selection.
Country Wedding Invitations
So exciting! Your wedding stationery is the first time your guests will get a glimpse of your unique country wedding theme.
Based in the scenic city of Aspen, Colorado, Virginia’s firm is experienced in planning and coordinating countless country-themed weddings. Her advice for brides and grooms is to “design invitations that are reflective of who are and the tone of your wedding: formal, casual, eclectic, or traditional.”
“If you’re going for the informal vibe,” she adds, “unique nature-inspired illustrations and modern loose calligraphy are nice ways to make your wedding invitation reflect a more laid back feel.”
