Being born and raised in Calgary, every year I always looked forward to one major event when living there….The Calgary Stampede! Who doesn’t love mini donuts and rides? Going to the Grandstand Show and of course when you become of age the beer gardens? Well put on your cowboy boots and hat and turn up the Country music cause the Stampede is about to get underway.
Four years ago, my husband and I got married during stampede week and it was so much fun. Wanting more of a traditional elegant wedding, we did incorporate the stampede by kicking off the reception in cowboy hats and line dancing. It was quite the hoot and of course later in the evening we were able to see the fireworks from our venue. Couldn’t have been a better day.
How fun would it be to add some western flair to your wedding or even go all out and have a complete western affair. Here are a few inspiration pictures of ways to add that western feel to your special day.
One of my favorite parts of Stampede Week was all the yummy breakfasts and BBQ’s
So get in the spirit and put on those Wranglers and Have A Ho Down for your Event!
