My husband and I were honored to have a wedding here on the farm a couple of weeks ago. The wonderful young couple go to our church and they dream of having their own farm one day. So, where else can you have a wedding when you dream of farming? A church with the same ole’ decor? Eh, no. How about the great outdoors with the bride coming down the aisle on horseback! Now we’re talkin’!
If you are thinking about farm wedding ideas for the future, I am sure some of these pictures will inspire you! In fact, while my dear friends and I were decorating, we were tucking away ideas in our heads for our children’s future weddings!
Let’s start out with the attire.
The bride wanted just hay bales for seating. We covered these with a see-through fabric and tied the ends with baling twine. Along the aisle we threw in some fake wildflowers to give it a little bit more color. Before I go on, let me give credit where credit is due. The groom’s mother and the bride came up with most of the decor ideas and we just put them all together.
This cute little set up was the sign in desk. You will notice a basket of wrapped up chicken feed to the left. The bride and groom decided they wanted chicken feed thrown at them when they reentered on Tigger, our big pony. Oh and did I mention the bride bought this table for a dollar?
Notice our ducks quietly taking a swim during the ceremony. It added to the peaceful setting! We had a few chickens wondering around right outside of the wedding area. There was a rooster there and I would have been horrified if he tried to ‘catch a hen’ during the ceremony! You know, not everyone was country folk there! But, thankfully he behaved himself.
I got a little teary eyed when I watched the bride’s father lead her down the aisle.
Candle holders were glued to vintage plates and were the centerpieces for each table
Two of mine having a giggling good time!
I am sure these two will have wonderful memories of their extra special wedding. Everyone had a great time and although it about killed us physically(maybe mentally too?) it was worth it! Oh yes, this will happen again here, but give me a year or two…
