Love and marriage…go together like a horse and carriage!

Love and marriage, love and marriage, 
Go together like a horse and carriage. 
This I tell ya, brother, you can't have one without the other.

What Frank Sinatra possibly was not aware of (at least he was not mentioning it): horse and weddings go together as well! They actually fit perfectly!

Yesterday, I stumbled upon an article on an eventer bringing her horse to her wedding ceremony.

There was a professional photographer taking gorgeous pictures and looking at these, I once again started to make up my mind on my own white wedding – oh yes, I you were not aware of that, I will get married. One day. Someday. Definitely! Just waiting for the question (HINT! HINT!)!

In the meantime, let us start planning – you better be prepared! So what are the prerequisites for a perfect horsey wedding?

  • We need horsey invitation cards: First what your guests will see is that – and with that they will be already pretty much aware of what to expect:

  • Standard for every equestrian wedding: here comes the bride comes - aboard her horse  - we’ll do that too! Thus, the dress needs to fit for horseback riding:

I probably need two dresses as otherwise one might have stains or hair on it. Do not want to take any risk on that :o
  • Good shoes are essential:

  • And a garter:

  • A carriage is a good alternative – though Hafl could then not be in front:

  • And we need rings – the only thing you could sell in case the love does not last – how romantic :D:

  • Somebody needs to dress up Hafl! I can’t as I will be busy with myself – the whole year before the wedding actually: 

  •  Then there will be horses on the cake:

  •  Or horseshoes:

  •  And we need flowers:

  •      Our friends will be on their horses as well – to form a guard of honor:

  •      We need green fields and a castle for nice pictures:

  •      We need an outside ceremony – to be able to ride the horse to the altar:


  •      There is a need for paddocks for the horses. And a parking lot big enough for trailers. Lots of trailers.

  •      We need tables outside to watch the horses:

  • We need horsey decoration – tons of decoration!

  • Oh and there is at least ONE horsey accessory for the groom – horseshoe cuff links:

With all these ideas, I guess the location question might be pretty quickly answered: Say good bye to beach wedding in the Caribbean, welcome guests allergic to horses and hay!

Anyway, that day will be great! I can already imagine myself:
