5 Must-haves for an Equestrian-themed Wedding

Love is in the air! From elegant and ethereal gowns, to stunning estates and floral bliss, here are 5 must-haves for an unforgettable Equestrian-themed wedding.

1.The Equestrian Estate

The venue will set the stage for your big day so it’s important to find a place that  you love and that fits within the overall theme of the wedding. Will you host the ceremony and reception on a ranch, in a barn or on a lovely equestrian-inspired private estate? Take the time to identify what particular elements your perfect venue will include so that you can quickly and easily narrow down the prospects.

2. Dressing the Part

With the big day drawing near it’s time to think about what kind of style statement you want to make. Is it classic, understated, glamorous, rustic or a mix of a few things? When picking your bridal style you’ll also keep the venues aesthetics in mind. Your overall look should complement the theme and feel of the wedding while also being in line with your own personal taste.

3. Inspirational Photography

A picture is worth a thousand words, and this is especially true when it comes to weddings. A great photographer can capture the smallest and most intimate moments of your big day, so it’s important to find someone who understands your vision, needs, and overall expectations.

4. The Dreamy Details

Flowers, décor, and accents, oh my! Express who you are and what you love through the décor of your wedding. The right color palette can bring your vision to life. From neutrals to bright blues and vibrant fuchsias, the options are endless. Bring in colors and patterns from the equestrian world that you know and love. From horseshoe accents to champion cups as vases, and show ribbons as napkin ties, these small details make all the difference.

5. Pony-up to Something Sweet

In addition to the wedding cake, many weddings now feature full dessert bars with lavish cupcakes and decadent truffles for those looking to satisfy a sweet tooth. Think outside the box when it comes to the finishing touches of your big day. Ask your bakery about custom options for desserts that may fit within your Equestrian wedding theme. From Horseshoe-shaped cookies to cake pops with your new family crest, the possibilities are deliciously endless.
