Elegant and Stylish Cowboy Wedding Invitations
Cheap Cowboy Wedding Invites
While we are by no means insinuating that a cowboy wedding is a sub-standard affair, it is safe to say that a cowboy wedding is definitely less formal than most other wedding venues. A cowboy wedding is generally laid back, informal; a good time is expected to be had by all. The attire and décor for this sort of wedding will be the same. And so will the invitations.
Cowboy wedding invites are usually printed rather than engraved, can use folksy, less traditional fonts, and heavy card stock paper is normally the paper of choice. Paper used for the invitations is colored paper, more often than not to coordinate with the colors of the wedding. Single envelopes will be fine-the fuss and formality of two isn’t necessary.
Some details, however-no matter how informal the wedding is-should not be omitted. Cowboy wedding invitations should include RSVP information-postage included if using ‘snail mail’. It’s also a good idea to make a simple statement as to how casual the dress should be. Guests not familiar with how casual a cowboy wedding is don’t need to be made to feel out of place.
1. The invitation often has a picture of the couple in the background taken in a country setting; a field of wildflowers, with a horse, a barn, or amid a field of baled hay.
2. Stock photographs or young children dressed in cowboy attire holding hands, sitting together on a fence or a horse or walking hand in hand down a country road are appropriate (not to mention cute) to be used for cowboy wedding invitations.
3. The paper the invitation itself is printed on might look like old barn wood.
The text for your cowboy wedding invites should be in line with the overall theme of the wedding. Some couples will use partial lyrics from their favorite country song to announce their big event: “All because two people fell in love” (Names) invite you to celebrate with them as they join their lives together as husband and wife…
Informal and country style phrases such as ‘We’re getting hitched’ or ‘Come watch us tie the knot’ are often used for invitations to a country wedding. Whatever you decide, your wedding-country or formal-should be just what the bride and groom want it to be.
