Good afternoon, friends! I’m going to chat with you today about finding your barn wedding style! That is, taking all of the inspiration you’ve been gathering – all of those pretty things you’ve pinned on Pinterest or dog-eared in wedding magazines – and coming up with a cohesive plan for your barn wedding style.
Once you’ve got your perfect farm venue locked in, there are a number of directions you can take your décor. No need to stick to a prescribed “theme” but you can certainly set an overall tone and feel for your wedding. It’s a great idea to make this decision early on because it can guide your décor, of course, but also translate into the wedding dress you select, the invitations you choose and even your menu!
So, I’m sharing with you six options you might choose to guide your barn wedding style and serve as inspiration! Check it out:
RUSTIC GLAM: This style says fancy and frilly. Use crystals, metallic touches or lush fabrics contrasted with the rustic nature of your barn venue to achieve this classy look!
VINTAGE CHIC: This style is beautiful and timeless. Use found objects, vintage furniture, or family heirlooms to give guests the feeling they’ve walked into another era!
DO IT YOURSELF (DIY): This is for the crafty bride and her team! There are some great DIY projects that can be incorporated into any style, but this theme has handmade touches at every glance that allow guests to see the time you or your friends and family have put into each detail!
GARDEN PARTY: This style says flowers and lots of them! And string lights, paper lanterns and votive candles, too. Light and airy and floral and lush.
BURLAP and LACE: This option channels the rugged elements of the farm but keeps it soft and beautiful with the contrast of lace. Add in bales of hay at your ceremony, some wine barrels at your cocktail hour and you’ve got the classiest, most beautiful hoedown!
PICNIC or BBQ VIBE: This option is laid back and takes full advantage of your natural setting and farm vibe. Keep it casual and beautiful and let the farm backdrop speak for itself and let your menu and other selections match!
