Planning A Country Western Wedding? Here’s What To Wear

April 30, 2024

The country western wedding started percolating last year with couples loving the rollicking rustic romance of this party style. If this is your vibe, it all kicks off with choosing a spectacular wedding venue set against a wide-open space of pastural fields, mountains or forests (hello, Canada!) and bringing elevated, down-home elements like wildflower bouquets, feathery, exotic grass-based installations, denim fabric accents, and a dining menu heavy on comfort food favourites and BBQ classics.

Then there’s the wedding style story. With the release of Beyoncé’s Cowboy Carter, country western chicness has exploded in the world of fashion, and that includes bridal wear, with so many designers embracing a dreamy, boho beautiful mood with their latest collections. Vintage laces, ruffles, crochet, rosettes and jacquard fabrics are some details essential to creating a country western wedding style, with silhouettes ranging from sweeping ball gowns, to tailored pantsuits, and drop waist wedding dresses which also happen to be the biggest bridal fashion trend of the moment. Accessorize your wedding ‘fit with cowboy boots, layers of pearls or bold gold accessories, and a trailing lace or tulle veil that will sail in the summer breeze.

To inspire your country western wedding wardrobe, here’s 12 styles to consider for your big day. —Alison McGill
