Rustic, idyllic, and with all the warm charm of the natural world surrounding, a barn wedding can be a wonderful choice for your big day. However, when you’re planning such a wedding, you need to ensure that you’re keeping all of your needs in mind. 


Address the practical needs first

When you’re planning your wedding, it’s a good idea to know whether or not you’re having the ceremony at the barn, or just the party. For the latter type of wedding, you need to ensure that you have transport set up for those who are not driving themselves. Furthermore, it’s a good idea to try and work with vendors and venues that can allow you to get prepped on-site so that you can arrive at the venue early and not worry too much about getting ready before you have to transport yourself.


How DIY should you go with it?

Carefully consider how much work you’re willing and able to take on before you decide to go full-steam ahead with a DIY barn wedding. From the food to the decor to acquiring and serving drinks, your barn venue owner might be able to help you organise and meet many of your needs so that you don’t need to do it all alone.


At Dodford Manor, we’re here to ensure that every one of your needs is met as best as possible with our wedding venue and planning services. If you have any questions about your barn wedding with us, don’t hesitate to ask.
