Ideas To Make Your Barn Wedding A Dream Come True

Rustic weddings are very trendy these days. A barn turned into a wedding venue can be a dream come true. With some rustic venues, you may need to add just a bit to your venue to give it more of a wedding vibe, while still keeping in tune with the rustic style. To help make your barn wedding your dream-come-true wedding, read on for a few ideas of what you can add that won't break the bank.

Add Extra Lighting

Twinkling lights all around your venue can add some more romantic ambiance to your venue and give it more of a wedding feel. Use string lights and a lot of white soft lighting so when some of the other lights are turned down, the twinkling lights are all that will remain. It will give enough light to the space without being too much for a romantic feeling.

Balance The Wood With White Linens

Balance all of the rustic wood in the barn with white linens. You can drape linens from the ceiling for a more romantic feel and use white linens for the tablecloths and for napkins or chair covers as well. Balancing the wood with the white, along with the extra lighting and your flower arrangements, can give the barn a beautiful and romantic feel.

Take Advantage Of The Scenery

Take full advantage of the scenery around you for photo opportunities for your wedding, as well as for your wedding itself. Get married inside the barn or just outside of it with the beautiful scenery around you. Have an arbor or a natural archway built to be married beneath. Use the venue not just for your reception, but for your wedding as well, and take advantage of the scenery all around.

Create A Photo Op Area

Give your guests a place to take their own photographs by using a section of the venue. Use an old, large photo frame or a hula hoop painted gold with some flowers and greenery attached to it. Allow guests to take a photo and then share it on social media with a hashtag of your wedding name so you can see the photos as well and have an online photo library of your guests. It's fun for your guests and you can have access to these photos as well.

If you are planning a barn wedding, talk to the venue to discuss your options.
