Homestead Elegance

Last year, the "ritzy ranch" theme was huge, and this year it's still going strong.

Fashion: This look is very romantic and natural. So it might be a beautiful lace dress with a sheer neckline and pretty buttons all the way up the back, or it might be more structured, like a fit-to-flare gown with a few sparkly hints and a romantic, loose hairstyle. Grooms want to make a fashion statement too, but they're looking into woven fabrics like tweeds and herringbone to do so.

Tablescapes: Designers aren't skimping on flowers in this category. The idea is to create a luxe tablescape and juxtapose it against a rustic backdrop, like a mountain lodge, a farm or, of course, a ranch. Draping is also going to be a popular way to add a polished look to an otherwise casual locale.

Food and cocktails: The food is wholesome and approachable. Think: farm-fresh salads, seasonal soups and main courses, and fun touches like local beer flights or a cheese table highlighting all the local varieties.
