Growing up in the South, there is nothing I love more than cowboy boots, mason jars, and sunflowers. They remind me of the slow, relaxed, southern way of life. What better way to celebrate your wedding than to take it right back to your roots? Country weddings create a vibe that allow guests to kick off their shoes and hit the dance floor to boogie! And don’t you worry about having to give up elegance if you have a country wedding- there are plenty of ways to create a chic, romantic, country wedding. Look at how fabulous these country weddings are! Congrats on getting hitched, y’all!
Recently my mom and I had a consultation with a florist in Kansas City and it was so fun to put together our ideas for arrangements, my bouquet, boutonnieres, etc! I am anxious to receive our estimate so that we can move forward!
We are opting for arrangements full of soft romantic whites, raw cotton, succulents, magnolias and garden roses. I really hope to create some Southern warmth in our mid-winter celebration with details such as the cotton bolls, mason jars and candlelight!
Today I wanted to share with y’all some of my inspiration images for our reception. Enjoy! :

I am so excited to see how all of these elements will come together! As you may have noticed, we aren’t using too many bold colors in our arrangements. I’m thinking the pureness of whites and the natural/rustic feel is much more fitting for dear BRS and myself!
Leave some love below and let me know what you think! Add some color? Keep the neutral tones? We’ve got plenty of time to switch things up!
The decision to kick off designer heels and put on a pair of cowboy boots is a growing trend among Southern and Texas brides. Celebrity Southerner Reese Witherspoon even admitted that on her big day she took off her Jimmy Choo’s and threw on some cowboy boots for her reception. Singer/Songwriter Miranda Lambert also sported her cowboy boots with bride at her country wedding. For Southern Belle brides cowboy boots can represent their deep connection to their Southern roots, as well as adding a playful, country touch to their wedding. And let’s not forget all the priceless, sentimental moments that can be captured while rocking your boots! Obviously, these boots weren’t just made for walking, these boots were made for weddings!
