Texas Country Weddings

Texas country weddings are less formal than traditional weddings, but make up for it in the relaxed attitude and down-home graciousness of the Lone Star State. If a church wedding--with all its formalities and headaches--is too stressful for the start of your married life, try something more laid back. In Texas, as in most of the South, the pace is a bit slower, so you can enjoy the beauty of the moment, which is particularly important for special moments like weddings.

When I do Meets Y'all

Weddings are some of the most joyous occasions people will experience in their entire lifetimes, but they can quickly become some of the most stressful. Invitations. Guest lists. Dresses and tuxedos. And, course, the venue itself: sometimes the only place you want is booked up for months or even years. The obstacle of planning the wedding shouldn't overshadow the ceremony itself.

A country wedding in Texas, on the other hand, can take a lot of the burden off your shoulders and let you focus on what's truly important: the happy couple. Imagine a rustic plantation from the 1850s next to a working cattle ranch, with people actually moseying by. Neither the newlyweds nor their guests will ever forget a ceremony in an out-of-the-way place such as the beautiful heart of Texas.

Texans possess the same hospitality that's famous throughout the South, and that goes for the many bed and breakfasts that dot the Texas landscape like so many wild bluebonnets. B & Bs thrive by really connecting with their guests, much more so than chain hotels. Many will help you design, organize and even cater your special ceremony; it's the South, so just ask. You'll be surprised at how friendly and helpful people can be.
