How to Plan a Tractor Wedding
At an outdoor wedding, the bride can arrive in style on a tractor. ( Images)

Forget the limousine. Line up a tractor for the bride and groom. After Welsh singer Cerys Matthews arrived at her wedding on the back of a vintage 1930s tractor, it was bound to become a trend. For farming families, the tractor is an icon, so including it in a wedding makes an agriculture statement. A tractor is particularly relevant for couples who will be living on a farm after they get hitched. For a down-home wedding, use a tractor theme and make your big day one that people will remember. Clean up your John Deere, Massey Ferguson or Farmall and get ready for the celebration.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Start with the invitations to initiate the tractor theme. Design wedding invitations in the shape of a tractor. Go online and type in "farm tractor templates" to see what kinds of options you can find. Fill in the required information: name of bride and groom, date, place and time.

  2. 2

    Bake a tractor-shaped cake, or buy a topper for the wedding cake with a farming couple on a tractor.

  3. 3

    Decide how tractors will be used in the celebration. The father of the bride could drive his daughter to the church on a tractor. If the wedding is outdoors in a field, the father could deliver his daughter to the groom, who would be waiting for her on his tractor.

  4. 4

    Pick the right dress and shoes. Climbing up and down the steps of a tractor requires some agility. Opt for a short dress rather than one with a long train that will drag on the ground. Don't wear shoes with 4-inch heels.

  5. 5

    Have a tractor rehearsal. For all wedding ceremonies, it is important to work out any bugs in advance. Adding a tractor or two can make timing and logistics more complicated, so conduct a couple of rehearsals to make sure everything comes together as planned.

  6. 6

    The photographs that capture your special day won't be standard wedding shots. Make sure the photographer understands -- and can work with -- the tractor theme.

  7. 7

    Choose the right flowers. Red roses on a green John Deere might look out of place. Consider using wild flowers to be more in keeping with the tractor theme.

  8. 8

    Select the right music. Country music is much more appropriate than hip-hop or classical.
