Anyone who has ever wanted to ride into the sunset on a horse with their cowboy beside her will have a fantastic wedding day with this western theme.
The key to a western themed wedding is the location and decoration. If your budgets allows, look for an old western town with the original saloon made from wooden logs and the quaint white washed chapel that has a bell tower. This can be the perfect venue for you and it needs little or no decoration to enhance the ambience.
As part of interesting western wedding ideas, have your guests park their cars at the saloon and arrange for them to take a horse drawn carriage to the chapel, where they can sit on traditional wooden pews waiting for the bride to arrive. Afterwards, everyone can celebrate your commitment in the saloon with an authentic country singer, and men can ask the ladies for a turn on their dance card.
Decorating a hall or your home in a western style for your wedding is also a possible western wedding idea - this only needs some creativity and visit to a few farms.
Spread bales of hay all over and cover a part of the bale with brightly colored checked table cloths; this way, the bale can be a seat as well as a table. Hang cowboy hats and fans all over the walls and provide genuine horse saddles for some people to sit on.
How about food for western wedding ideas? Catering is quite easy as you can prepare dishes of fried chicken, mashed potatoes and vegetables that only need to be warmed up before serving. Serve the food in big ceramic bowls with checkered patterns and have your guests dish up their food into metal plates. No need to worry about everyone breaking glasses because you can use metal cups for them to drink their preferred drink out of.
Then, there is the entertainment part of western wedding ideas.
To keep everyone busy, happy and on the dance floor, hire a line dance band that will teach all your guests the steps and moves to become professional line dancers. A fun activity for the men to do is to hit a pinata that is made in the shape of a horse. Fill the pinata with small plastic sachets of whiskey, brandy, southern comfort or any other kind of alcohol to get everyone in good spirits.
There are plenty of companies that hire party and amusement rides, and most of these companies have the famous raging bull which, when you are on, simulates the actions of a rodeo. Supply some rope and other interesting accessories for your guests to wear while on the raging bull and this will make excellent photos for your wedding album.
Your wedding day should be the day that you have fun, relax and enjoy the company of your family and friends while they celebrate the union between you and your loved one. The western themed wedding has all the makings of an exciting adventure that will have everyone laughing and dancing the night away. We hope you enjoy these western wedding ideas and suggestions!
