Top Wedding Colors Summer 2017

Bay Horse Inn partnered with Linen Hero to handle all of our personal linens and they are the only linen company in our Preferred Partner list. With a HUGE selection of fabrics, textures and styles they are sure to have what you are looking for.  Also, we love the variety of choices for any budget and of course how easy they are to work with! Linens are shipped straight to the barn and our staff puts them on for you and we also remove and return after your event. How easy is that?  We asked our representative Chris Lamar, of Linen Hero, to share a few trends she is seeing with colors and style this season.  Here is her response.

Color Trends Summer 2017, by Chris Lamar

This wedding season is all about femininity, understated elegance and romance.  We are seeing the use of blush, ivory and gold with lots of greenery on the tables this summer.   Shades of blues and greens can be found paired with bright florals and are also making an appearance!  Don't let that trend sway you from your favorite colors and the vision you have for your perfect reception though.  Your wedding reception is where you can let your personality shine with all the colors of the rainbow and hundreds of texture combinations.  If you can dream it, we can make it happen for you.

During wedding season you will want to get your colors selected and reserved early to assure availability.  We all know counts will change, but reserving the exact linens you want, well in advance of your wedding, assures you a stress-free check on your to-do list for your wedding. 

Order fabric swatches so you can compare them with dresses and cake ribbons as well as feel the texture and how colors and textures can be paired to create the memories you want for yourselves and your guests.

While our Event Specialists meets with you 6-8 weeks prior to your event please don't miss out on ordering your favorite linens. Contact Chris directly at  to ensure what you envision is available. (Note: Burlap and Lace are top choices and often not available if you wait until 8 weeks prior.)

It's all in the details!

As our barn nears completion we've been adding some fun country chic details.  Here is a sneak peek at a few!  We hope you enjoy these latest additions to our barn and saloon.

A Taste of Texas is Perfect for Your Barn Event.

We love having Texas Roadhouse as a Preferred Partner for catering! Managing Partner George Hill knows how to treat our referrals. We recently snuck in on a tasting for one of our newly engaged couples. He schedules these tastings in his free time so there will be no distractions and you have 100% of his attention.  When couples call he'll review menu options so once you arrive you'll be able to taste a variety of items to consider.  Texas Roadhouse is known for legendary food at an affordable price point. Their steaks and american fare won't disappoint, nor will their addictive buttered biscuits, chicken and ribs!  

Should you consider hiring a wedding planner?

by Alicia Wilson, of JA Alexandra Coordination and Design

Congratulations sweet bride to be!  What a wonderful road ahead of you.  Planning your wedding is certainly half of the fun.  Many of us have been planning our wedding day years before we get the diamond, so this will be a piece of cake!! You have the vision and family to help, now go plan the wedding of your dreams!

What type of bride am I?  Where will I have my reception?  Oh no, they’re booked- now what?  That doesn’t matter, my dress won’t look good there anyway.  I can’t forget to tell the florist that I changed my mind and I hate peonies today, but first I need to pay her. No, first I need to change my inspiration board.  I need to tell the venue that I changed my inspiration board.  How much was that again? My mom was in charge of that.  I’ll call her right after I call my friend Stephanie who is helping me plan the wedding and ask.  I have to wait until her baby is done napping though.  She’s just as excited to plan my wedding as I am!!  I am having so much fun!  My mother in law wants up lighting.  Where do I find up lighting?  Does the Barn even allow up lighting? RSVP’s are coming in!!  This is happening!   How will they get to the Barn?  Did I confirm the rooms at the hotel?  I bet the hotel will help me coordinate the shuttle on the wedding day.  I have the timeline memorized and Stephanie is helping.  Can Stephanie show the florist where I want the extra flowers?  Agh, Stephanie’s a bridesmaid.  She has to be with me and get ready.  My mom won’t mind.  Yes, she will make sure the DJ arrives and wait on the florist.  My cake is gorgeous!!  The photographer doesn’t have the timeline.  Can someone find the timeline?  Eek, I am getting married today.  Did I ever get a piece of cake?

Calm down sweet bride.  You’re gonna eat a piece of cake and I already gave the photographer your timeline.  I assure you of that.  It’s my job.  Continue reading.

Yours to borrow!

We just purchased these two vintage inspired arbors for our event barn! We thought they would be great for inside the barn.  Have your florists personalize for your special day!  Use one for your vows and another is available as you enter the barn if you'd like two!
