A redneck wedding sounds like a lot of fun, right? If you’ve ever spent a couple hours watching a marathon of the hilarious reality show “My Big Redneck Wedding” on CMT, I’m sure you agree. While most redneck weddings are anything but traditional, the guests, wedding party and newlyweds sure seem to have a blast. Be cautious while watching this show if you’re easily influenced. You may find yourself as unexpectedly inspired as I was (by the stuffed squirrels dressed as bride and groom atop the wedding cake in a recent episode).
If you discover you’ve been harboring latent redneck tendencies (or even downright blatant ones), embrace them and have some fun with your wedding invitations and wedding favors.
The Giddy-Up wedding invitation is perfect for a cowboy themed wedding and coordinates with the Western Lasso cake topper (more hygienic than dead squirrels) and Miniature Cowboy Hat table decorations. If you prefer the Wild West, check out our Western Wanted Poster wedding invitations. And if you’re a redneck into motorcycles, consider the Love in the Fast Lane wedding invitation.
As for favors, redneck-wedding guests will love the Horseshoe Keychain wedding favor, sure to bring them luck for years after your big day. If you’d prefer to hand out a sweet treat, consider the Giddy-Up Mint Tin (complete with mints) or the Lasso Hearts Favor Box to fill with the confection of your choice.
