So you've decided on a barn as the location for your wedding. Fantastic! Now here comes all the fun, aesthetic decisions. Deciding on an overall look/theme for your event is going to make things look more cohesive and intentional. Plus, committing to a style can make all the smaller decisions easier as you have a vision to guide you. Here are the most popular barn wedding styles.
This is probably the style that most people think of when they think "barn wedding." This style plays off of the farm setting and evokes a rural, countryside atmosphere with touches of real farm life. This is a great theme for more casual weddings! This style is often achieved with worn wood accents, rustic fabrics like burlap, and farm motifs such as wooden barrels.
Boho weddings are super trendy and have always been popular, and with good reason! This style is very versatile and can easily be dressed up or down. You can really tailor this aesthetic to your personal style. Boho style is often achieved with macramé accents, pampas grass, and trendy touches like cacti or succulent plants.
Barn weddings used to just be for rustic brides but in recent years they have been glammed up. This style might take some work on the event designer's part if the barn is a very authentic, rustic barn. If elegant or glam is the style you choose to go with, note that newer event barns might require less décor work than rustic, old barns. Elegant barn style is often achieved with chandeliers, fabric draping, and glam tablescapes.
This style is so popular for the fall and winter barn weddings! Seasonal style takes inspiration from the harvest in the autumn months and the holidays in the winter months, making this a great style if you want a cozy vibe. Play into the farm setting with fall and winter motifs like flannel, seasonal colors, and cozy accents like throws and plush pillows. Our fire place heater is a favorite during the fall and winter months; it creates ambiance and provides some warmth!
There are so many ways to tailor each of these styles to your personality! Pinterest, The Knot, and real wedding sites like Martha Stewart and Style Me Pretty are great resources to see some inspiration.
