Boots and Barns
Nothing screams Texas more than a wedding or wedding reception hosted in a renovated barn. The rustic charm will ensure your guests feel truly transported to our state. Of course, no Texas-themed wedding is complete without cowboy boots! Whether it’s just the bridal party sporting the Texas-favorite footwear, or you encourage all your guests to participate, the barn and boots combination will ensure you’re two-stepping all night long. The best parts of choosing boots for your wedding day are the comfort they provide and the perfect photo opportunities they offer.
Texas is renowned for our spring-blooming wildflowers – Bluebonnets, Indian Paintbrushes, and the Golden Rose are all native to our Texas prairies. Incorporate these naturally occurring flowers into your bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces for colorful and attractive arrangements. To ensure your guests understand the meaning behind your floral choices, consider placing elegant and brief informational cards next to the centerpieces. Once your guests make the connection between your florals and the state, your choices take on a whole new meaning.
A Taste of Texas
Our state is home to a variety of delicious foods that people from all over the world travel to taste. Even the food that you enjoy on a regular basis may be a treat for your guests. Consider adding Texas barbecue, breakfast tacos, or kolaches to your menu – whether as part of the rehearsal dinner, cocktail hour, main meal, or even a late-night snack. You could also consider bringing in a food truck to complement your favorite bright blue horse trailer serving your drinks! Whether it’s Whataburger, P. Terrys, or Torchy’s Tacos, your guests are sure to have enough energy to party the night away!
Indoor & Outdoor Themes
Unlike our neighboring states, Texas boasts a moderate and comfortable climate the majority of the year, making combination indoor and outdoor receptions popular, but uniquely Texan. Add cocktail tables, a standout bar, and seating vistas to encourage your guests to enjoy the night stars. On the other hand, you could set up your entire dinner outside or even the dance floor! The convenience factor behind having an indoor/outdoor wedding reception is that if the weather is not cooperating, you have the backup venue built-in. Add a few twinkle lights and you have the setting for a romantic and memorable evening.
