Going Rustic with Western Wedding Dresses
A wedding is your best excuse to wear extravagantly. When it comes to a western wedding, it is best to pick western wedding dresses for their simple, rustic yet elegant appearance and is common in many weddings across the United States. Drawing in themes of simplicity elegance and a deep connection to the Earth, a western wedding dress will make you feel like an authentic Cowgirl Bride.
Unlike all other wedding dress styles, western wedding dresses have a more simple appearance. Made from fine silk, the main purpose of this dress is that it allows the bride to look comfortable and at home with her surroundings as is the nature of many states in the country. Western-style wedding dresses often have a sleeveless design to highlight a woman’s shoulders, arms and hair.
Color-wise, western wedding dresses adopt light tones ranging from white to resemble purity to golden yellow and light brown to symbolize mother earth. Dresses of this style also adopt a multi-layered skirt that highlights a woman’s figure while still keeping her elegant.
Since western weddings are often held on an outdoor setting, the length of the gown should be considered. In essence, it should be long enough to reach the woman’s knees but not too long that it will cause her to trip and fall as she walks down the aisle.
One of the primary accessories that will complement western-style dresses are a pair of leather boots with pointy tips. Spurs on the boots are an optional addition if the partners decide to ride off to the sunset on horseback. If boots are a bit too rugged for the bride, a pair of sandals would suffice. Headwear is also optional and could range from a veil to a crown of flowers. Western wedding dresses would also not be complete if the bride is not carrying flowers common to western areas like roses and sunflowers.
