If you’re planning a beautiful rustic wedding, it’s likely you’ll be searching for the perfect barn wedding venue to set the scene. Barn wedding venues are naturally suited to rustic wedding themes due to all the gorgeous bare brickwork and striking exposed beams.
Barn wedding venues are magical at any time of year – you can decorate them with glowing candle light in the winter or spill outside into the beautiful farmland setting in the summer. If the barn you are considering is on a working farm, talk to the owners about how you can include more of the surroundings in your day – do they have hay bales for your guests to sit on outside for example?
To really enhance the décor of your barn wedding venue, think about what details you can make the most of. Wooden details such as log slices suit the rustic nature of the venue, whilst wildflowers, hessian and fairy lights all work well too.
There are additional things you need to consider when booking a barn wedding venue – if it is quite rural will your guests be able to find it and where will they park? It’s a handy idea to provide a list of local accommodation with your invitations if there isn’t any on site. You may also want to consider wellies for your bridal party, particularly if you’re planning lots of gorgeous outdoor photography at the venue.
Barns are a charming choice for weddings as they have a timeless feel and can look magical with very little decorative work. If you want a laidback, fun wedding where you and your guests can let loose and party the night away in casual but stunning surroundings, a barn wedding venue will be the perfect fit for you.
