So many readers have sent me ideas or have asked questions about having a wedding on horseback. I must admit, I have been designing my daughter's dress in the back of my mind, because it must feature a divided skirt, so she can ride.
I've only been to one wedding on horseback. Bride, groom and attendants, including the minister who didn't know how to ride, rode out to a lovely spot on a favorite trail. My sister, a very accomplished horsewoman, safely accompanied the minister who rode a very quiet school horse. He was a very good sport about the whole idea.
The bride and her matron of honor wore lacy white shirts, black pants and while not on the horse, the bride wore a simple but elegant flowered band in her hair.
The service was held under a bower of pines, and everyone walked or rode back to the stable. Afterward, the bride and groom held a reception in their new home. It was sweet, unusual and memorable.
