When one thinks of a Texas wedding, the first thing that comes to mind may be “rustic”, but the Lone Star State has many faces, from the rustic to the elegant and formal. And, you don’t have to factor cowboy boots into your wedding theme!
Texas is also known for Bluebonnets. In the early spring, these beautiful flowers cloak fields and roadsides and make a spectacular backdrop for wedding photos. Another Texas tradition is Blue Bell ice cream. Serve it at your reception for the pleasure of your guests. This delicacy is made in Brenham, Texas, and truly is a treat. Vanilla with Madeira wine poured like chocolate over the ice cream is yummy!
Springtime is about nature’s rebirth. Consider a beach wedding, a wedding at a winery, at a ranch, or beneath the stars to celebrate your love and commitment. Honeymoon at the beach in one of the luxury hotels in Galveston or in the Hill Country.
Galveston on the Gulf is a great Texas location for a beach wedding. Say your vows with the waves whispering accompaniment. A beach wedding anywhere requires a lot of planning, but is worth the effort. For a beach wedding, a formal ball-gown-type dress is impractical. You might want to forego the lace as well. Lace is prone to picking up beach debris. Instead select lightweight fabrics such as chiffon or charmeuse, and your gown will flow enchantingly on the sea breeze. Leave the fancy veil in the store and opt for beautiful hair accessories. An updo is the perfect hairstyle forBeach weddings.

A rustic barn wedding or rustic themed wedding is fun and says Texas, loud and clear. Now, you can choose your cowboy boots! With a rustic theme, you need natural and more informal. This is not to say you can’t have a gorgeous wedding dress, but would the groom wear a tuxedo? Flowers and decorations need to be tailored to this rustic setting. You can make your own statement and have a rustic-themed wedding with a more formal setting, but don’t forget those cowboy boots. While you are decking out your wedding party, maybe the bridesmaids should wear cool boots, too. Toss in a dance to “She’s Like Texas” by the Josh Abbott Band. For a spectacular touch, arrive on a white horse or say your vows mounted on a trusty steed.
Taste of Texas – Brews
Thinking about your reception bar? Want a taste of Texas? Shiner Bock and Blue Moon beer…and wine from one of the many wineries in the state. For liquor, you can’t beat Jack Daniels, a whiskey produced in Lynchburg, Tennessee, and the largest selling American whiskey in the world. You’ll probably want to offer a variety of liquors. Tequila is a Texas favorite, served up in a chill Margarita. A good gin at a reasonable price is New Amsterdam.
Texas is large, needless to say, but it is hospitable, friendly, and offers a beauty and charm all its own. You can find any venue, color palette, or wedding theme— beach, Hill Country, or ultra-formal—in Texas.
