Country girls like things simple, but when it comes to their weddings, they might like to spice things up a little. Country weddings are often held outdoors, in the sweet air of nature. Outdoors in a field or garden, or indoors in a country church or farmhouse, country-themed weddings are dynamic in character.
Outside in the open air of the country, have picnic tables set up as your reception tables. Cover them with plaid table cloths for a classic country look. Decorate with homemade bottles of colorful peppers tied with corn husks. If you are having a fall wedding, spread beautiful fall foliage, gourds, or carved out pumpkins with flowers.
For country-themed wedding favors, your options are limitless. Is your wedding taking place on a farm? Spring for rooster favors in various forms. Any farm animals would work for this theme including cows, horses, pigs, ducks, and sheep. Place these critters on your wedding reception tables and they are sure to be a hit with your guests. To keep your guests mosquito free while they enjoy the reception, purchase outdoor repellent candles or tiki torches.
Homemade edible treats are always wonderful wedding favors to send your guests home with. Jars of jelly or jam with a piece of calico fabric tied over the top are excellent, rustic country wedding favors. Horseshoes, cocoa mix, lemonade mix, brownies, cookies, candies, bread, or any other homemade baked good will make quality, tasty homemade wedding favors.
Having a country winter wedding? Inside by the roaring hearth you can celebrate with your guests in a quiet, cozy setting. Spray paint or roll pinecones in glue and glitter for your guests. Tie tags to them with each individual’s name on them. Your guests will be honored to receive a craft like this one. Hand paint Christmas ornaments that can be used for years to come by your guests. They will always remember how beautiful your winter country wedding was.
For a fun time, consider having a hayride to be sent off by. On the back of a pick-up truck, throw some haystacks or pine straw down and the newlyweds ride off to their honeymoon destination (or at least to their car.)
