The Texas wedding of country-music superstars Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton made headlines for its blend of tradition, glamour, and down-home appeal. Though the couple split in 2015, take some cues from their sentimental nuptials for a romantic event with a dash of Southern comfort that you and your guests will love.
Combine timeless style with rural charm for a rustic-elegant wedding event inspired by the A-list couple. See ideas for your own country wedding, below:
Get inspired by the great outdoors and use natural textures as a backdrop for décor. Opt for rustic materials and hammered metals for unique wedding-day details. Don't be afraid to add a bright pop of color to your floral arrangements in a shade that makes you smile. You'll beam every time you catch sight of your flowers! Accent your cake with colors from your wedding palette for a cohesive, styled look.
