Whether you’re looking to achieve rustic southern elegance or modern sophistication on your wedding day, a barn wedding is a versatile, beautiful option.
Farm and barn venues have been bringing more and more versatility to the wedding world in the past few years, and they’re some of the most popular and beautiful settings for weddings. While you may like the idea of having a barn wedding, you might not be exactly sure of how to decorate it to convey your personal style. Continue reading for some great ideas and design inspiration to include in your barn wedding decor.
While barns bring all the cozy, rustic wedding vibes, decorating with drapery can add an elegant, polished feel to your decor. Drapery can be added in so many places, and looks stunning when all is said and done. Drape fabric from the ceiling, wrap it around floor-to-ceiling beams, or hang it along the entryway. Fabric also helps to contrast all the wood of barn weddings and really modernizes the feel. Adding fabric draping to a barn makes it feel elegant and inviting; your guests will love it! It’s a great way to dress up a barn, and we love it when couples add fabric draping around The Mill!
Having a well-lit barn wedding is also important, especially if there isn’t a ton of natural light. String lights can set a romantic mood and make a space look magical. Since string lighting is such a great way to set the mood, tons of different styles have been created, and you can set them up in so many different ways. Whether you choose to hang them cohesively with fabric draping on the ceiling, wrap them around the support beams, create a wall of lights, or line them along the tables, they’re always such a beautiful feature of barn weddings!
Centerpieces are a must-have for any wedding reception, and with the natural, neutral colors of barn weddings, you can do any type of centerpiece you want! Whether you want to go big and bold, keep it simple, or make it colorful, it’s bound to look beautiful inside the Mill. In your centerpieces, include things like old jars to hold your flowers, wooden stands, lanterns, candles, and small decorative accents.
If you’re looking to go the simpler route, pops of green are absolutely stunning against the neutral colors of a barn. Greenery adds to the natural, southern feel of a barn wedding and keeps your decor elegant and nature-inspired. If you’re not sure what kind of greenery to include in your wedding, Eucalyptus, Ferns, and Pine are all great options.
Wondering what kind of simple decorative accents to add to your barn wedding? Wooden accents are perfect for the rustic, southern couple. Include wooden accents like table numbers, cake stands, candle holders, signs, card boxes, and more! If you’re getting married outside, next to, or in front of a barn, you could add a beautiful wooden arch to say your vows under. These wood accents create a cohesive feel to your barn wedding and are just stunning! Your guests will love them, too!
