Vintage Burlap Wedding Invitations | Rustic Wedding Theme
When I came across this romantic old fashioned country story on GreenWeddingShoes, of a couple that met on a real life cattle drive, which included over a 100 horses and mules being herded over 4 days across 100 miles of rugged terrain, I was thoroughly inspired and impressed. The couple knew their wedding of course had to be inspired by how they met, continuing with the western romantic country theme. They had dreamed of an old fashioned country wedding.
Of course if you’re planning an old fashioned country wedding you need to have the perfect location picked out, and of course the accompanying accessories. Choose a rustic barn location, in late spring or summer, when the warm breeze will pass through the fields and give off an amazing aroma.
To invite your guests to your wedding, choose a rustic wedding invitation that will give your guests an indication of what your wedding theme will be. These old fashioned rustic wedding invitations by the Monogram Gallery pictured above are a perfect choice. They feature a country burlap print pattern in the background paired with an old fashioned and vintage graphic. You can completely customize these invitations to suit your personal needs.

As for your and your guests wedding attire, don’t forget to remind them to throw on their cowboy boots and hats for a old fashioned country hoedown of a wedding.This theme will definitely take form once you decorate your venue (hopefully a barn or country setting) to the nines with rustic additions. I love how items are placed above old wooden boxes to give it a ‘barn storage’ kind of feel. As well, simple accents such as burlap ribbons or country field flowers displayed in rustic milking containers.
Of course, don’t forget the country music, as guests are definitely going to expect a fun filled full night of partying and dancing! Here are some tunes to get you started:
Processional: Bridal Party: Cowboys and Angels – Dustin Lynch; Bride: Me and You – Kenny Chesney
Recessional: Cowboy Take Me Away – Dixie Chicks
First Dance: Run – George Strait
Have an amazing time planning and of course enjoying your romantic old fashioned country wedding!
