What comes to mind when you think of a southern themed wedding? Most people would say a farm, a barn or bales of hay. Well, Tori and Josh showed that you can have a down home southern affair by paying attention to details and being creative. They were married at the Mackey House in Savannah, Georgia. Guests were treated to a bird cage decorated with a variety of pictures, a biscuit bar, fried okra and glass bottles of coca cola.Â It was truly southern fare. They even used vases that resembled milk jugs.
Tori wore a spectacular yet simple ensemble. Her lace dress was convertible. She had straps on during the ceremonyÂ but when it was time to party at the reception, it was transformed into a beautiful strapless gown. Her hair was in a simple bun and she wore flowers on the side. Her shoes were ballet styled with ribbons to tie around her ankles. The bridesmaids had nice short strapless dresses. The bouquets and the boutonnieres had the same arrangement of flowers leaning on the aqua and blue color scheme.
Let's not forget the cake. It fit right in with their theme. It was home made instead of the usual multi-tier cake. Just what you would expect at a southern wedding.
As you can see, you can create the wedding of your dreams. Don't limit yourself and you will be surprised. The venue does not make the wedding. You do. Don't take anything for granted and you will have the wedding of your dreams.
