Barn Weddings: Decor Inspiration

Barns make an incredibly unique and cozy atmosphere for weddings.  Even if you're not into the country-chicness that is cowboy boots and hats, these venues offer a surprisingly versatile array of decorating options.

One of the big trends in barn wedding decor is string lights.  Because barns typically provide less-than-ideal lighting, string lights have become a trend in creating a cozy ambiance.  Candles, too, help warm up the lighting but, as always, you must be careful with them.

Another option for lighting your barn venue is chandeliers.  The rustic feel of the barn juxtaposed against the formality of the chandeliers creates a visually stimulating overhead.  Look for chandeliers with a vintage or antique feel and they won't feel so out of place.

Chalk boards lend a handmade feel to the space as well.  From the plans for the day to menu options, there are many ways to utilize chalk boards for a barn wedding.

  1. Thanks for these superb photos for wedding inspirations! This article would help me a lot with my DIY wedding inspiration. At one of domestic New York wedding venues I would tie wedding knot and will be having barn theme for my big day.
