How to Plan Your Barn Wedding

Barn weddings are a fusion of casual and classic, resulting in a breathtaking scene. You can have a classy barn wedding, but remember, it’s not as easy as it seems to organize a barn wedding.

Steps That You Should Consider in Planning

The surrounding field will serve as the backdrop for the majority of your wedding photos, so keep an eye out for muddy or overgrown spots that could ruin them, and don’t be hesitant to ask the venue manager if a particular region can be cleared away. Ensure you have the additional space apart from the barn so that when the barn becomes too cramped up, you can spread outside after the commencement of the wedding ceremony.

It would be good to have a dressing room area at your barn venue. You’ll be able to refresh up or perhaps change outfits throughout the event.

Prepare a guest list first; check if all the guests attending your wedding can fit in the venue that you have chosen. It’s always better to increase the guest count by ten so that there isn’t a shortage of food and space in case of gate-crashers.

Make sure you love the team that will help you in planning and coordinating your barn wedding. With weddings come wedding jitters, so it’s imperative to have a team that you completely trust to avoid unnecessary pre-wedding stress.

Have a proper way to get to the barn. You can’t have your guests’ heels getting stuck in the mud, can you?

Check if the barn has a restroom. If it’s not there, then ask your planner to arrange a mobile restroom trailer.

Have proper lighting! Your walk down the aisle is a magical moment and can be ruined if the lightning isn’t good.

While chirping crickets and fireflies can be lovely, bug bites aren’t. Stock up on citronella candles and place them around the barn wedding venue’s perimeter. Keep bug repellants throughout the venue so they can use them if the guests are bothered by them.
