Beautiful might not be the first word that comes to mind when you think of a barn, right? Think again! Barn wedding receptions are becoming more and more popular, and with the right decorations, lighting, and location, you can create the perfect atmosphere for any wedding. Depending on your location, Summer and Fall seem to be the most popular seasons to have a barn wedding – Fall being particularly beautiful with the changing colors of the leaves. Check out the way this barn wedding reception turned out. Very country chic. I love it!!
I love the idea of using soft colored drapes for the barn entrance, creating a cozy and romantic feel:
Hay bales – They coincide perfectly with the overall theme of a barn wedding and create chic comfy seating for your wedding guests. I also like the idea of using burlap as a table runner, but my personal favorite combination for a country wedding is: Burlap and Lace – it’s feminine meets masculine, representing the joining of two.
Barrels – You can use them as table tops, or even table legs for a large table. This is very popular for the cake or dessert buffet. Wine barrel wedding decor ideas.
Mason Jars – Simple yet stunning. You can use them as vases or candle holders for your reception tables. With the uncomplicated use of wire and twine, you can also make them into hanging lanterns. I love the way they look hanging from trees. Here are some more ideas from my Mason Jar Inspiration Gallery.
Fabric – Use lots of sheer and soft fabrics, such as organza or tulle, to create swags and draperies. This creates a soft and romantic feel for an otherwise lusterless barn.
Hanging lights or chandeliers – Lighting is very important to create ambience. String lights hanging from the rafters are an easy and elegant idea, and chandeliers can completely transform a space from drab to dreamy.
