Stylized invitation cards are the first and important step. Let the guests prepare a little for the upcoming «time travel». A postcard with figures of a cowboy and his gentle lady, a cardboard box-hat with a message inside, drawings and pendants in the form of colts, a lasso and even a horse harness. Great if you equip «postman» a groom dressed in the best traditions of the Wild West and, of course, on a horse! Also, invitations can be issued in the spirit of famous leaflets. «a reward is promised for the head of the criminal». The wedding portal www.articlewedding.com advises only to modify the inscription - «for the presence at the celebration promised a reward» - sparkling fun and a riot of emotions. And don't forget to mention the dress code!
By the way, about the dress code
For newlyweds - a wide range of images. A cowboy and his broken girlfriend, a cowboy and a beautiful princess of an Indian tribe, a sheriff and a noble lady. By the way, if you think that at least on the official part you need to look dignified - choose wedding dresses of the 19th century. Strict frock coats and starched shirts, floor dresses with lush crinolines, woven lace veil. But you can change clothes for a banquet. Plaid shirts, denim in all its forms, chintz dresses, corsets, Cossack boots, traditional Native American outfits interspersed with moccasins, headbands, feathers and combat «painted».
Your guests will also find where to take a walk. Representatives of the law in the person of the sheriff, cutesy dancers of the corps de ballet in magnificent dresses, elegant representatives of high American society, various Indian tribes, and, of course, seasoned cowboys and their companions.
For those who do not plan to transform completely, you can offer accessories: red scarves, invariable stetsons, colts, lassos, star badges, leather loafers.
The main idea for the design of the banquet, of course, is the famous cowboy saloon. Squeaking entrance doors, wooden signs, horseshoes, cart wheels, wildlife skins on the walls, «decayed from time» maps of gold mines, wooden furniture. Replace traditional flowers with cacti of all sizes and styles.
A win-win option - to make a wedding banquet out and arrange it on a personal plot, previously «make-up» under a typical ranch. Shelter for dressing stubborn stallions, bales of fragrant straw instead of furniture, carelessly scattered saddles, harness. The bar can and should be stylized as the famous wagon with an awning top. The zigzag wigwam figures, miniature tomahawks and totems will add a twist.
Despite the fact that wild prairies abound in cacti, bright flowers can also be found in them. The site www.articlewedding.com recommends focusing on armfuls in wooden tubs and «jagged» clay pots.
Best «neighbor» Cowboy Wedding - Country Style. This is especially true for musical accompaniment. Traditional five-string banjo, soul-stirring sounds of folk guitar, violin accompaniment. This choice is perfect for a themed Western wedding.
Menu «Wild West»
So that zealous cowboys did not get to the shootout for a place at the counter, arrange banquet cards in advance. Wooden plaques, yellowed pieces of paper on the spines of small cacti, cart wheels, «hides» coyotes.
A great idea would be to combine banquet cards and bonbonnieres. Make them in the form of cowboy hats or famous and Native American loafers, or even «gross» burlap sack tied with twine.
Checkered tablecloths and wooden or «old» metal utensils are perfectly complemented by signs with the names of dishes. Soak them in a common theme: «old native american», «meat loafer», «sheriff star», «fireworks», «cowboy drinker». There is a place for fantasy. And, do not forget to arrange the main dessert guest. Wedding cake in the shape of a cowboy’s boot, marzipan themed figurines, calfskin colors, cream lassos and revolvers.
The company of your saloon will be delighted with such a sweet masterpiece. rest assured!
