Lots of brides this summer are turning to inspiration from the prairie for their upcoming nuptials. To pull off a Wild West-style wedding, brides are choosing locales such as farms or ranches to set the mood, and substituting roses and hydrangeas for native wildflowers for a simplistic but still elegant feel. Gone are also the stuffy suits and floor length gowns- check out these adorable bridesmaid’s dresses from anthropologie that one couple used to add a little country chic to their big day. After the ceremony, couples are choosing signature drinks like sweet tea vodka-lemonade or a whiskey cocktail served in mason jars. Once guests get hungry after dancing the night away to the local bluegrass band, some down-home barbecue is a delicious and less expensive food choice.
