Are you searching for wedding theme ideas? Do you want to have something different for your big day? You may consider to have a cowboy wedding with western style wedding dresses. Western wedding dresses have a unique style of their own which are a bit different from the average selection of bridal gowns.
Western bridal wear comes in many styles and textures. Some brides want a formal look while others will prefer something much more casual. Before shopping for your Western wedding dress, decide on how formal or informal you want to be. The bridal party in a western-themed wedding can wear country style dresses and shirts, with accessories such as cowboy boots and cowboy hats. Your style may also depend on the setting for your wedding. A ball gown appropriate in a church or nice lodge, might not work well in a barn or on horseback.
A western-themed wedding doesn’t just need the decorations, cake toppers and centerpieces to get the right effect. The bride, the groom and the rest of the wedding party should wear western-style attire to help set the mood. The couple should also ask the wedding guests to participate by wearing cowboy or cowgirl outfits in the wedding invitations. Formal Western bridal wear gowns include features such as: Boned bodice with delicate lace trim and a full taffeta skirt flowing from the embroidered waist.
Although the bride should choose dresses in the western country style for best effects, the choices are by no means limited. She can find western wedding dresses that are simple and comfortable, or sophisticated and romantic, or anything in between. A very popular Western wedding dress style is the white lace, low slung princess waist, with a skirt that touches the ankles in the back but is higher in the front to reveal the Western or Victorian boots that usually accompany these dresses. Many wedding dresses also have portrait necklines and keyhole bodices.
For western wedding accessories, the bride can wear a choker, a long lace glove or a lace shawl. A white hat or fascinator can also look good, depending on the style of the western wedding dress the bride wears. If the bride feels like it, she can even choose a cowboy hat to get that western bride look. She should also wear Victorian lace-up boots or cowboy boots instead of regular shoes. To top it all off, the western bride can wear a lace garter with a tiny decorative horseshoe or cowboy hat.
At the end of the day, the bride and groom can send the country guests home with western wedding favors as the newlyweds wear their matching western wedding bands.
