Country Ranch Wedding

There is something so sweet and sincere about a country wedding. An intimate venue, the laid-back style and the warm earthy colors all add to the obvious charm. Here's a little inspiration for a country ranch wedding with an equestrian flair:

Simple wildflowers make gorgeous bouquets for a country-styled wedding -- Green Wedding Shoes

Opt for a selection of homemade pies instead of a fancy wedding cake -- Style Me Pretty

The perfect accessory for a true country bride is a horseshoe shaped ring -- It's a Jaime Thing

For a soft glow during the ceremony or reception, place candles inside hanging glass jars -- 100 Layer Cake

If the venue is a farm or ranch, consider holding the reception inside a beautiful barn -- Martha Stewart

For wedding favors, consider horseshoes or wildflower seeds. Wrap favors in cotton bags printed with a horse motif for added style -- Style Me Pretty

A classic cowboy hat is the perfect prop for photos. Hang a few hats from the backs of chairs inside your reception venue for guests that are feeling festive -- Style Me Pretty

Western-style boots are perfect for dancing the night away at a country wedding -- 100 Layer Cake

Horseshoes are great for a sweet photo op -- Style Me Pretty

When invitations are considered, choose a simple style with a horseshoe shaped motif. Horseshoes are often considered to be lucky and protective.
