Country Wedding Ideas
If you’re an outdoor type of couple and have chosen a country theme for your ceremony and reception you have come to the right place for ideas.
There are no rules to follow for a country bridal affair, just your ideas and thoughts on how to celebrate your love for each other.
A cornfield, lodge, wheat field or barn will make a wonderful venue for your celebration. A working farm with animals and hay will make for great pictures and your guests will enjoy walking around to see all the animals. Verify the availability of electricity, running water, cooking and rest room facilities.
