Planning a Barn-Themed Wedding

Themed-weddings are a huge thing, and every year thousands of different couples plan their weddings around a common theme or interest – and there’s no lack of different themes. Some people opt for something as “out there” as a movie-franchise wedding or a comic book-themed wedding; others might prefer to plan their wedding around a certain era or celebrity… Who’d like to get married by Elvis?

Barn-themed weddings are also in demand – and one of most popular options we offer.

Here’s some more information about barn-themed weddings, what you’ll need to think about and how we can help you plan it.

Choosing a Venue

Barn Wedding

There’s no better place to have a barn wedding than an actual barn!

Many restaurants and small guesthouses might be planned around a barn theme already, and they might make a perfect venue for your wedding. If not, take a drive around the agricultural district and if you spot a beautiful area, farm or barn, ask if they would be willing to rent it out for a day. You’d be surprised at how often this works!

Choose a venue that’s easy to access, and make sure you book a few months to weeks before the wedding.

It’s the Little Things

One of the hardest things for a couple planning a wedding can be agreeing on the little things. These are things like the flower arrangements, the music, often even the drinks, the food and the dresses – and obsessing over what goes where for too long can really slow the process down when you have a wedding to plan.

Having a wedding based around one central theme makes it easier for couples to get a handle on exactly what they’re looking for – and it’s hard to disagree when the elements of a wedding are based around a single theme and already match together.

In part, this is why theme weddings have become so popular for many couples. It allows you to do things your way while still taking on the wedding arrangements together: It’s just easier.

Wedding Websites

Your wedding is a big day – and likely one of the most memorable days of your entire life.

Wedding websites can streamline the entire process and make it easier to keep track of your guests. It can also help your guests to know more vital things about the event itself, like the date, the time, the location – and directions on getting there. It can save you thousands of minutes in phone calls when you can just say, “All the information is available on the wedding’s website”
