Weddings with equestrian style.
Though there is always pressure with a wedding to get every detail right, the best are often those that don’t. It can be hard to make so many choices about things like napkins and music while fully grasping the deeper meaning of the day. A wedding can symbolize something different for each person, from the single most important day of your life to a simple bookmark placed to acknowledge the beginning of a new chapter.
Whether a couple chooses a fariy-tale dreamscape or an informal ranch retreat, the celebration is an opportunity to reflect the values you and your new spouse hold. For equestrians, this means ample opportunity to incorporate their love of horses, from horse-drawn carriages to small details in the decor or invitations.
As for planning, the days of etiquette books and strict traditions are past. Now, it is up to each couple to mix and match, choosing traditions and styles that are important to them, leaving constrained or rigid rituals behind. Formality can still be found in weddings of all kinds, but it is no longer required. In a way, this has given brides and grooms more decisions to make than ever before.
Still, many couples recognize that not everything can be controlled. Sometimes, a rain shower or a late change in plans is a way of coming back down to earth and realizing that it is the love behind the wedding that is cause for celebration.
