Barn weddings are becoming increasingly popular with couples as they celebrate their big day. If you choose to have a barn wedding you are in a position to balance elegance and rusticity for an unforgettable event. Here are some of the things you might consider when planning your barn wedding.

Don’t be afraid of glamour

The simple backdrop of a barn allows you to add a lot more sparkle to your wedding without having to worry that it might look tacky. Twinkly lights and mirrors help to provide a feeling of elegance, while draped fabrics can soften the area for a relaxing time.

Use colour

The colour palette of a barn is generally filled with neutral tones, and this can give you an opportunity to add a splash of colour to your reception without worrying about clashing with the existing colours of the room. Pastel colours tend to go well with the neutral tones. However, don’t be afraid to be bold with bright or dark colours.

Floral arrangements

Filling a barn wedding with flowers is a beautiful way to inject some colour and dedicate fragrance into the day. Traditional floral arrangements will look at home, while more modern displays will be highlighted for their contemporary qualities.

Creative props

Generally, barns have more space to work with, and this can mean more space for creative props. Light displays, vintage bicycles, and decorative arches will help to provide a background for wedding pictures for you and your guests.
