Everything You Need for a Western Wedding Party or Anniversary
When it comes to a family-oriented event like a wedding, anniversary, or retirement party sometimes the very best themes are those that are closest to the heart. Country weddings and western receptions are some of the most fun events to plan and attend. Hospitality is front and center at these events and a rustic setting, delicious buffet, and danceable music is all that is required to make everyone feel right at home. Your western wedding invitations can set the mood as soon as your guests open the envelope – but what comes next? Personalize your wedding, reception, bridal shower, or anniversary with these great western, rustic, and country touches.
Beyond Fresh Floral Arrangements
In many ways, fresh flowers are the most ideal decoration. They go with every theme and are perfect in every season. For western-themed celebrations, consider choosing wildflower bouquets instead of standard mixed flowers. Sunflowers, snapdragons, dahlias, mums, and hollyhocks are some of the familiar country favorites that add a little extra homey touch to your reception hall.
Flowers make perfect centerpieces, too. Make perfect rustic centerpieces with just a few items:
Begin by tying the burlap strips or ribbon around the mouth of a mason jar customized with the couple’s monograms or names. Place fresh flowers in the jar, then fill with water that has floral preservative mixed in. Set one vase on each table.
The Perfect Soundtrack
Talk with your DJ about curating a playlist of traditional bluegrass, blues, or country music. If your family includes many fans of modern country, be sure to mention some favorite artists to your DJ. This will help them create a playlist full of danceable tunes and songs that provide the ideal background for socializing. In no time, your beautiful western-themed reception or wedding will be ready for your guests to enjoy.
