BA Tortuga’s Top Ten Redneck Wedding Decorating Tips

Hey y’all!

In my new book, Finding Mr. Wright, Mason is an event planner from Aspen who’s tasked with doing a wedding for a Texas couple who wants classy redneck as a theme…

Here are Mason’s top ten tips for a redneck wedding décor, which even pleases the bride’s brother, who happens to be Mr. Noah Wright.

10. Burlap: Use it as table covers or make bows from it to tie on the backs of chairs.

9. Gingham: As an accent fabric, red and white gingham can be adorable. Not too much, though, or it starts to look like that old Hee Haw show.

8. A doughnut wall. Super trendy. Doughnut cakes are also in, Décor and food!

7. Cornhole games. Give the guys and kids something to do and have a chance to decorate the boards with the bride and groom’s symbols and colors.

6. A bouncy castle. This is just for the kids. There are always kids at redneck weddings. Just saying.

5. Horse shoes. Also décor and possibly a game. Make sure to hang them over doorways for good luck, ends up, U at the top

4. Barnwood everything. Yeah, get that weathered wood as a backboard for the ceremony, as an accent on the tables or chairs, or as the parts of a pergola for the couple to stand under.

3. Boots with short dresses. This is quintessential. Not those fancy city boot. Cowboy boots.

2. The bride and groom on horseback. Whether for the whole ceremony or just the entry. Makes a real statement, though it could be a bad statement if neither person knows how to ride.

1.  Mason jars. Mason jars for drinks. Mason jars for candleholders. Giant mason jars with cookies inside. Mason jars to hold up plates of cupcakes. This will strike a chord. All rednecks have at least one Mason jar in their cupboard.

There you go, y’all! A Redneck wedding dream. I hope y’all will check out Finding Mr. Wright!

Much love, y’all

Finding Mr. Wright Blurb:

Leaning N

Everything’s bigger in Texas, including weddings. And misunderstandings.

Colorado wedding planner Mason O’Reilly lands a major contract: a two-hundred-guest wedding at the Leanin’ N Ranch, where his friends Ford and Stoney are working to provide a safe space for GLBT events. The Wright/Preston ceremony is a destination wedding, and as the grooms are from Texas, everything is done over the phone and email. There’s no way that could lead to trouble, right?


Oil tycoon Noah Wright isn’t happy about the impending disaster, but he admires Mason’s quick thinking and grace under pressure. And that’s not all he likes about the out-and-proud wedding planner. Even though Mason’s interested in Noah, his Mr. Right can’t possibly be a rancher from Dallas.

Can he?
