wedding bride horse riding trend of 2012
A memorable entrance by the bride to her wedding while on horse is a new trend for 2012.
  • Is their a stable on the property of your venue?
  • Does your venue even allow horses on the property?
  • What color/breed of horse do you want?
  • How experienced are you as a rider? Do you need some lessons to get comfortable again?
  • Make sure your dress is properly seated so it is no stepped on or pooped on.
  • Make sure you practice your entrance and exit in full dress before the actual wedding.  Practice allows you to think of things you might never have imagined if you had not done it.
  • Ride the horse at least once that you will be using on your wedding day so you are familiar with each other.
  • Find a photographer that is gifted at shooting horses and you should be fine for the wedding.

Suggestions for the logistics of the horse wedding. I would suggest just the bride come in on the horse, dismount, then get married while standing. This prevents numerous variables from happening including kicking of the wedding guests in the face, the awkward moment while the horse is pooping during the ceremony, and that moment when the horse decides to eat something it should not.

Now if you need some stylish equastrian clothes for sale for your reception gear, then hop to it. Who says you need to wear a trraditional white dress in the reception.  Have some fun with it.

Outdoor Muddy Weddings need work boots, not patent leather oxfords

Sometimes brides decide NOT to cancel their outdoor wedding and just persevere through the rain.  If you do, bad things can happen. BUT you can at least make some wonderful memories in the process and perhaps become playful in the mud. In fact, many older cultures on this planet take rain on your wedding day as a sign of good luck. Rain brings water to dry places, and causes crops to flourish.  You can see why it’s viewed as being a blessing and bringing good luck.

Muddy outdoor wedding? Be prepared with proper red wing boots
Muddy outdoor wedding? Be prepared with proper boots

Redwing boots are the perfect men’s workwear boot. You can find dozens of these boots at www.davesnewyork.com for affordable prices! Of course, do you really want to wear boots to a wedding day if it just sprinkles?  Just tell your bride that rain is symbolic for blessings, cleansing, unity, and a new day. If she wants to have children, remind her that rain is also a sign of fertility and new life. Rain helps things grow and become something new and better.

So if the weatherman predicts heavy participation on your blissful day remember the old French saying, “Mariage pluvieux, marriage heureux“, which  promises a happy marriage as a result of a wet wedding. And if you don’t buy  into the idea that rain is lucky, there is always the old standby: Rain, rain,  go away – come again another day! Of course your guests probably won’t come back if you reschedule the last minute. Even if they try to do some comparison shopping for airline rates, last minute flights are ALWAYS expensive.
