One of the hottest wedding trends for this year is a Wild Wild West themed wedding. For all of you that enjoy a rustic décor, combined with elements that you won’t normally see at a wedding, we have some suggestions that will get you started on planning a wedding that guests are sure to remember for the rest of their lives.

The invitations

First of all, you’ll need some Western wedding invitations. In order for your invitations to really match the theme of your wedding, you need to opt for vintage-looking paper and choose a font that fits those “Wanted” posters you’ve seen in movies (if you haven’t seen Django Unchained, this would be a good time to do it).

The dress

You can really put your imagination to good use when it comes to your Western wedding dress. You can either opt for something really simple, like a lace wedding gown with long sleeves and mermaid-style figure or you can go for something with cream/brownish accents. The important thing is to avoid any princess-style dress, this is not a Disney-themed wedding after all.

The bouquet

“Your bouquet is the perfect place to add a pop of color to an all-neutral color palette. Wild flowers incorporating hearty plants like succulents, air plants and king protea hold up well work with the textured look and feel of a wild, west wedding.” (Source: The Knot)

The decorations

When looking to put together a list of proper decorations to fit such a wedding theme, think ranch. Everything you’ve ever seen in terms of ranch decorations will do wonders at your wedding. Brass accents, deer antler decors and pretty much everything that is made of carved wood should do the trick. Don’t forget your rugs and your hay ballots.

The favors

This is another chapter that is subject to a vivid imagination. How about individual messages carved on small piece of wood (they could even be turned into some awesome fridge magnets). Or how about some jars of honey with personalized labels indicating the event? Or maybe potted rustic flowers that, properly taken care of, could last for years to come?
