Ain’t Nothin Better Than A Folksy Wedding: Music, Cocktails and Wedding Favors
My favorite elements of a wedding: The Music, cocktails and wedding favors. If you think about it, as long as you carry out your theme in these three areas, you’ll have covered the event from start to finish! Of course there are many other fun ways to incorporate your theme into the big day, but today we’re focusing on my top three.
Music is a great way to set the tone for the event. And there ain’t nothin better for a fun and folksy wedding than with this Keegan Smith song, Smile! Click the arrow below to listen.
Folk music is all about tradition and heritage. So I thought the Old Fashioned Cocktail would be a perfect fit.
