The Lost Pines Region is brimming with scenic Texas wilderness, making it possible for outdoor country wedding ideas to become a reality. Here are some ideas to inspire you.
Pavilion Pretty: In Central Texas and the Lost Pines Region, the climate is hospitable for outdoor country weddings most of the year, which is why pavilions are so popular and so many of them feature fireplaces and a chandelier or two. In this setting, the outdoor stone fireplace serves as a great backdrop for the ceremony, framed by an arbor made from branches and twigs and flowery enhancements.
Makin’ Hay: Sure, hay is for horses – yet it can also be used for happily-ever-after celebrations. At this country wedding, hay squares draped in white linens provide comfortable perches for the wedding party.
Wild and Free: Table settings with blue-and-red bandanas and vases of wildflowers create a true-to-Texas setup that’s pure country. This arrangement demonstrates how what may seem like ordinary items can come together to make an extraordinary impression.
Tall, Bark and Handsome: When it comes to a backdrop for your country vows, simple is often synonymous with stunning. This strong, old tree next to a fishing pond marks the spot for starting a shared life.
Mason Jar Magic: Nothing says “country” quite like a mason jar. Filled with lemonade – straight or spiked – these jars look the part and are easy to gussy up with fancy straws and sprigs of herbs. Plus, these elements never go out of style.
Boot Up: In Texas, boots are the perfect footwear for everyday outings and special occasions. Beyond kicking up a photo opportunity to cherish, they also extend comfort to the bridal party and groomsmen because – you guessed it – they’re made for walking. They’re also great for dancing.
