Become a Top Wedding Planner – Get Ideas From a Celebrity Wedding – Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton



Country music singers Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton married on May 14 in front of 550 guests at the Don Strange Ranch in San Antonio, Texas. The May 30, 2011 issue of US magazine revealed some of the details of  their event that might inspire you when planning a wedding with a country-chic theme:

Wedding Attire

Miranda wore her mother’s wedding gown with custom-made cowboy boots. She changed into a short, strapless Priscilla of Boston dress for her reception.

The bride’s bouquet was made entirely of brooches, given to her at her shower by friends and family, and was wrapped in her mother’s vintage lace handkerchief.

The bridesmaids each wore different dresses and hairstyles that Miranda personally selected for them.

All attendants wore a vintage pair of cowboy boots that the bride had bought for them.

The bride’s three dogs walked the aisle dressed in fancy collars. (One dog got away from the bridesmaid who walked them down the aisle.)


The groom sang a song he wrote for his wedding, “Let’s Grow Old Together,” as the wedding party walked up the aisle.

Bridesmaid Ashley Monroe sang “Makin Plans,” a song Miranda wrote for Blake, as Miranda walked down the aisle. 

The couple walked out to the song, “Happy Trails.”

The first dance was “No Doubt About It” written and sung by country legend Neal McCoy.

Famous guests, such as Reba McIntire and Martina McBride, got up and sang with the band.

At midnight, the the band was replaced with a karaoke machine.

Ceremony Decor

The barn was lit by lanterns and candles lined the aisles.

The couple stood on a cowhide rug under an arch made of deer antlers to say their vows.

The guests sat in pews from a church mixed in with rustic antique chairs.

The room was filled with peonies, honeysuckle, hydrangeas and bluebonnets.

Reception Decor

Design company, Junk Gypsy, put together an eclectic mix of items.

The pavillion was decorated with mis-matched couches, rocking chairs, neon signs and tin cans.

Antler chandeliers were draped with crystals.

The linens were made of lace and sequins.


Outdoor buffet barbecue of herb-encrusted quail, mesquite-grilled beef tenderloin, homemade corn pudding and venison quesadillas.


A five-tier vanilla cake with hot-pink icing was designed to look like worn, tooled leather.

There were also red velvet and lemon mini-cakes served in shot glasses.

All cakes were by the Nashville baker Jay Qualls.


Home flip books, beer cozies and mason jars with battery-operated fireflies inside. (I’ve seen these in catalogs such as Signals.)

Wedding Planner

Kathy Best, Miranda’s publicist, planned the wedding.
