Dressing for a country wedding or a ranch-themed wedding can be quite a challenge. You will need to find that perfect middle ground between dressy and casual. Figuring out what to wear can be tricky, as you don’t want to look overdressed, but you don’t want to look too casual either.
As a wedding guest, you will always want to look chic while still being comfortable in your outfit. Pictures are going to be taken, and naturally, you want to look great in them. And if you aren’t a bridesmaid, you certainly don’t want to be mistaken for one! We have listed a variety of different styles just to show how many different outfits you can wear to a country wedding.
Farm to fork weddings are anything but a hoedown these days, so skip the denim and diamonds and opt for your hippest look. A maxi dress or a short floral chiffon is sure to make an impact. But make it a point to keep it real, as we are talking possibly barnyard floors and rolling lawns here with a stick with a wedge, which will give you height minus the tripping hazard.
Unless it’s requested, it may be appropriate to leave the jeans at home. Take this opportunity to wear that cute romper or fitted jumpsuit, a great clutch and a pair of impressive heels or lace-up gladiator sandals.
Super Feminine Dress and Boots
You can always get a great pair of Western boots, and pair it with any feminine dress in your closet. You are sure to look feminine and pretty in this outfit.
A Crisp White Blouse, Denim Skirt, and Boots
This is another winning combination you can wear to the country wedding. Try a boot with a weathered/vintage/Western vibe for the classic look. You can wear one with a traditional western boot with pointed toes as well. If it’s hot, you can combine with a denim skirt and a crisp white western shirt, or possibly a peasant-style blouse. You could choose something in white eyelet or lace to dress things up a bit.
Go for heels! Heels are always appropriate for ANY wedding, not just a country wedding. Since most western or ranch-themed weddings take place outside, you will likely need to grab yourself a pair of High Heelers to stop your heels from sinking into the ground. They are discreet and highly effective. If you are planning on really emerging yourself into the country theme, you can grab a pair of cowgirl boots and pair them with your dress! Boots tend to be a little more of an investment so be sure you take care of them.
You’ll be a style icon in this black embroidered romper! Lightweight woven romper with a collared neckline, darted bodice with patch pocket, and floral embroidery in shades of yellow, orange, and green at back is sure to make you look stunning.
Or try this black lace dress to come out stunning in the country wedding. This woven jumpsuit features embroidered, cutout details along a triangle bodice, supported by skinny straps that meet at a lace-up back. Fitted waist gives way to wide-leg pants. There is hidden back zipper.
This tile print sundress will make you look lovely too for a day event.
Or, you can try this striped sundress as well if you want.
A Summer Dress
Think light, flowing, summer dresses. Lace or boho style can easily be considered western when accessorized properly. Pastels and neutrals are most common, but dark blues and plum shades are going to be all of the rage this summer and can be just as suitable for a country themed wedding.
The Rural Charm Look
Team lace and florals with statement jewels for rural charm.
Classic with a Fresh Twist
The sateen fabric is dressy, while the soft pink and apricot print brings this classic shape right down to backyard wedding level. Since the tea-length hits you right at the calves, elongate legs with a pair of strappy flesh-colored heels.
You can wear this long lace dress as well. It is perfect for the country wedding.
Rustic Country Outfit
Mix country and rustic together and you have yourself a country rustic wedding theme that can be in the woods or in a barn.
