One of the most popular wedding styles in recent years is the barnyard-style wedding, and it isn’t going anywhere. The barn wedding combines simple elegance and romance with a rustic, vintage feel. It can be more affordable, fun to put together, and really channel your inner eclectic personality.
If you want to have a romantic barnyard wedding but aren’t sure where to start, these tips are a great place to start.
Light it Up
When it comes to decorating a barn for your wedding, it is all in the subtle and simplistic décor. You want to work with the natural landscape of the barn, not against it. One of the best ways to do this is to light it up with simple twinkle lights. Strings of lights are an amazing effect for this type of wedding, where you can add them on the ceiling of the barn, down the aisles where people are sitting, and at the altar where you are getting married. There are a lot of wonderful ways to add lighting with delicate lights instead of using other more traditional methods.
Add Pops of Color
Going with this simple, romantic décor style, don’t be afraid to add a little color. You might not decorate it with complex colors and patterns similar to other types of weddings, but little pops of color really transform your barnyard wedding and make it unique. Think about colors that complement the neutral tones of the barn, such as lighter shades of blue, green, or purple. Don’t use more than a couple different colors when decorating for a barnyard wedding or it might become too overwhelming.
Be Prepared for Weather Changes
While you are inside a barn for this type of wedding and safe from inclement weather conditions, you still need to be prepared for temperature extremes. If your wedding is in the winter, the barn probably doesn’t have much insulation, so you will need a heating source. For summer and fall weddings when it is in the triple digits outside, have fan or air conditioning units available to keep your guests comfortable during the wedding and reception.
Decorate with Florals
For a romantic barnyard wedding, flowers are an ideal way to accommodate the simple, rustic feel of the wedding. This allows you to add some little pops of color and turn it into more of a feminine wedding décor. Think about simple and romantic flowers like white roses, yellow daffodils, or white and yellow daisies.
There are many ways to approach a barnyard wedding, from turning it into a budget-friendly wedding to having an extravagant space.
