1) Something blue:

A bride isn’t ready for her wedding if she isn’t wearing any blue! These cowboy boots from Durango Boots are the perfect way to incorporate blue into your wedding.

2) The perfect wedding dress to show your boots off:

Wedding dress shopping is one of the most important parts of preparing for a wedding! Be sure to choose a dress that not only shows off your personality, but shows off your awesome wedding boots.

3) The rustic wedding venue of your dreams:

Barn venues or gorgeous outdoor settings are both perfect options for a rustic wedding.

4) Burlap, burlap, and more burlap:

We have yet to see a rustic wedding that doesn’t include at least a little burlap!

5) Mason jars:

The more mason jars the better! Don’t you just love the idea of using them as wedding aisle decor?

6) Lots and lots of vibrant flowers:

Wildflowers and sunflowers are two great choices that you can’t go wrong with!

7) Wedding pictures with your horse:

Is a cowgirl wedding really a cowgirl wedding without your horse being there? Be sure to take some pictures with your horse so you’ll have memories to last a lifetime!

8) Rustic wedding cake:

We have to say that this is one of the best wedding cakes we’ve ever seen. These “naked” cakes are all the rage! The strawberries and flowers add the perfect country touch.

9) Wood accents:

Wooden signs, wooden table placemats, and wooden table numbers are all commonly seen at rustic weddings.

10) Country Bar:

A rustic wedding doesn’t skimp when it comes to serving drinks! How great is this wooden bar complete with taps?
