One thing's for sure—this country knows how to celebrate. From chardonnay-and-cab bashes in Cali to gourmet grits and gospel in the South, join us as we road-trip across the nation's wedding landscape, one rollicking region at a time.

• Couples celebrate the Rocky Mountains' cowboy culture with rehearsal-dinner hay rides, followed by rustic-chic ranch receptions.

• In this neck of the woods, the party doesn't start till the bluegrass band moseys in.

• Hot Locale: MONTANA
Elk antlers line the aisle. Just-caught trout is on the menu. And pitchers of Montana mule (ginger beer, whiskey, and lime) cover the bar. In Big Sky country, every wedding is an ode to the Great-with-a-capital-G Outdoors. You'll see twigs, wildflowers, and acorns on the tables. The site? A lodge with enough horse and hiking trails to keep your peeps busy all weekend long.
