Wedding fashion for the rustic chic Houstonian Bride
Are you planning a barn wedding in Houston, Texas? Choosing the right ensemble for you, your groom and attendants will help set the tone for the day. So take the bull by the horns and get ready to hear some of the Moffitt Oaks planners’ favorite barn wedding fashion tips.
For the Bride
Be the star of your own show but stay in theme! If you are getting married in a barn, a full ball-style dress may not be the best option. Opt to bring something a little more romantic to your day by going for a lace dress. Lace is the perfect option for bringing something delicate to your barn wedding as well as for keeping as cool as possible in the unpredictable Houston heat. If you’re marrying in the winter months, look for something a bit heavier like organza. A simple bodice with an organza skirt will highlight your style and feminity while bringing an unexpected punch of glam to an otherwise rustic event…
Wedding shops like Mia Bridal Couture on River Oaks Blvd. in Houston is known for their romantic gowns. They boast an array of gowns that are delicate, glamorous and chic and can help you choose the perfect dress for your barn wedding.
For the ‘Maids
Styling your bridesmaids can sometimes prove to be as difficult as choosing your own dress. For barn weddings in Houston, it’s common to see bridesmaids in tea length dresses with boots and while we adore that look, we love to see our brides help their girls shine! Go beyond the dress and try your best gals in a sequin skirt and lace top to match your gown. Looking for something a bit more formal than a skirt? Put a little faith in your ladies. Choose your color scheme and allow them to choose the dress that best suits their style and shape. Have them strut their stuff in stunning heels for the ceremony and have them bring their boots to kick up their heels during the reception. To compliment your barn wedding, go for neutral shades. Gold, champagne and even blush are beautiful in all seasons and often compliment all skin tones and hair colors and look amazing with all types of flowers.
BHLDN in Highland Village knows fashion. Many of their dresses are vintage inspired, delicate and will look beautiful strutting around a barn!
For the Groom
While we love a man in a traditional black tux, if you’re looking to dress him down a bit to fit your theme and location, try a grey suit. If you’re having your barn wedding in Houston during the summer, consider allowing him to skip the jacket and have him wear a dark grey suit with a vest and a piece of cotton as his boutonniere. Looking to dress way down? We love the look of khaki slacks with a navy sport coat, tie and boots.
Nordstrom in the Galleria is always a hit for styling both brides and grooms.
For the Guys
Have them match the groom but take it down one step. Is he wearing a sport coat? Let the guys wear slacks with a nice button up and a vest.
For the Little Ones
One of the highlights of any wedding is watching those cute little faces walk down the aisle but keeping them happy can often be a challenge. Let the little darlings wear a light-weight lacey dress with plenty of twirl. Once they hit the dance floor they will thank you! Put the little fellas in pants to match your groom, a button up to match your ladies and a pair of suspenders. Comfort is a key to keeping these little ones smiling and essential in helping to avoid a meltdown. The only tears we like at weddings are happy ones!
