Reader Question: Cowboy Chic Mood Board

Take your inspriation from some of the Wild West's best parts and feature rich browns, reds, and a pop of turquoise. The key here is to stick to lots of lovely chocolate browns for the wedding party attire - do chocolate brown Western style shirt for the men and pair with simple straw cowboy hats + dark wash Wranglers. Have the bridesmaids wear lovely chocolate brown sheath style dress, brown cowboy boots, and load up on the turquiose jewelry. Let the ring bearer wear a younger versio of the men's attire and outfit the flower girl in a sweet denim dress (with pink cowgirl boots – hey, it's all in fun!). For yourself, wear a simple style of wedding dress but accessorize with red jewelry and flowers!

For the reception, stick to classics for the foundation pieces – wooden chairs and long white tablecloths. Top them off with burlap table runners, red enamelware pots/mugs (filled with white flowers), and use old Mason/Ball jars as candle holders. Finish the party off with loads of red hanging lanterns and a trail of blue luminaries on the dance floor.
