In early January, I was contacted by writer Deborah Wilson. Deborah was working on an article about farm weddings for Horse-Canada magazine. She asked if I could share some planning tips. A horse-owner myself, I was thrilled to contribute to her article. I was even more thrilled to see the article “Advice for Planning Farm Weddings” in the May/June 2014 edition of the magazine!
If you’re planning a farm or ranch wedding, pick up a copy of the magazine for some great wedding planning advice! Here’s an excerpt from the article:
Consider guest safety. Not all of your guests may be accustomed to life on the farm. Make sure any horses or other livestock are secure…Make sure you have an experienced handler secured to take care of the animals..”
“Use the farm as inspiration for your theme…..pay homage to the farm through your menu with locally raised and grown protein and vegetables…homemade jams and preserves make excellent wedding favours.”
Congrats to Deborah for her wonderfully informative article. Congrats also to my fellow WPIC colleague, Karen Sagle of When Sparks Fly Wedding and Events, who also contributed planning advice to the article along with Naturally Chic.
Groomsmen riding in on horseback to the ceremony is fitting for a farm wedding!
A farm wedding affords amazing photo opportunities!
