You’ve been together for the worst of times and the best of times and decided that you want to retie the knot! Some may call it excessive, but we think your love is magical and deserves a standing ovation.

Old West

The wild, wild west is a great wedding theme, as it is both vintage and entertaining! You can have a mock show down, a western square dance, and some good old-fashioned fun.

Any venue can be transformed to feel and look like the old west, especially an outdoor venue like a garden or farm which, would allow you to capture the essence of the old west perfectly. You could also try and rent out a saloon, or western themed restaurant, as they will already have many of the props for you. When it comes to your decorations, the west was all about the brown and ivory color scheme. Feature brown and vintage ivory tablecloths and don’t be afraid to incorporate a third color that you like such as yellow or pink! Your centerpieces should include wild flowers such as sunflowers, carnations, or daisies.

The best part about this theme is that you could really make it an unexpected and fun affair for your guests.

As for your ensemble, decorate your dress with a pair of Ariat cowboy boots and pearls, like this bracelet from http://www.snqueens.com.
