3 Tips to Plan the Perfect Barn Wedding, Richmond, Kentucky

A barn wedding is perfect for those who desire a natural atmosphere for their big day. With the right planning, you can create a look that is as extravagant or minimalist as you wish. Whichever way you lean, however, these tips will help you make your wedding a success.

Top Tips for a Barn Wedding

1. Prepare for an Outdoor Environment

barn weddingMost who opt for a barn wedding are looking for an outdoorsy, rustic setting. As such, you'll likely spend much of the day in the open air. Plan for the issues that may come up in such an environment. At the entrance, offer some practical mementos: bug spray, sunscreen, paper fans, and customized water bottles. These will help you and your guests stay comfortable on your special day.

2. Use the Environment

A country or barn wedding provides the background for some exceptional pictures. Utilize the entire setting in your décor. Tall grass lends a fairytale aspect to sunset photos. Antique, rusted pickup trucks make quaint props. Perhaps you can even get a photo with nearby horses.

3. Hang Lights and Foliage

Nothing creates a more magical atmosphere than a wooden barn decorated with string lights and a plethora of greenery. These simple yet striking adornments will draw the eye. Use flowers as table centerpieces, hang them from the ceiling, or use them to frame the entrance or archway. For lighting, go as natural as possible. Use small, warm-toned fairy lights as your main source of lighting and spread electric tealights on the tables. The effect will be incredibly romantic and cohesive.
