Texas is rich in culture, color, and flavor. A few of the current trends that we are seeing nationally, fit right on in with the Texas way of life. Anything vintage, shabby chic, country elegant, or reminiscent of southern living, will lend itself to any Texas venue.
Vintage themed weddings take the most simplistic of materials and create the most chic décor and atmosphere. Vintage styling incorporates romantic bride and bridesmaids attire, narrow lapels and skinny ties for the guys, heirlooms and lace, and a dreamy palette of soft colors and textures. You can play on this theme by making it more personalized to your own styling and adding a touches of opulence, shabby-chicness, or country flair.
Western rustic and ranch themes are as natural to Texas as our bluebonnets. Using distressed materials such as wagon wheels, bales of hay, twine, or leather, these goods are the start to a truly western party. And a ranch theme isn’t just about a hearty barbeque menu and cowboy boots. It’s can also be a Mexican party with Spanish flair. The décor doesn’t just stop with bold floral, linens, Tex-Mex or authentic Mexican food, mariachis and Flamenco dancers can add the right spice to turn a ranch themed wedding into a culturally infused fiesta.
Southern charm weddings are classic, traditional weddings with a southern twist. To no surprise, Texas etiquette and twang are the perfect combination to make this event feel just like home. Delicate florals, crisp linens, designer china, shiny metallic touches and a robust menu are the heart of a southern wedding. The overall look of the event is soft, clean, and yet feels lush. Colorful signature drinks or even punch or lemonade has every thirsty guest longing for more. And don’t forget the sweet tea!
