The biggest wedding trend is to get as far away from the traditional wedding venue as possible. We’re no longer getting married in hotels and banquet halls. Couples are going back to basics, breaking with years of tradition, and starting their lives together in the rustic, romantic setting of a barn. Make no mistake though, the barn wedding is still super chic, despite the rustic and downplayed decor. You also don’t need a barn to create a barn-themed wedding, all you need are the right decorations.
The barn-themed wedding
In The Knot’s annual wedding survey, one of the main takeaways was the popularity of the barn wedding trend. Almost 15% of the couples got married in a barn-themed setting. Whether it was an actual barn or another venue made to look like a barn, one thing was for sure, exposed wood and mason jars were (and still are) a big hit on the wedding circuit in 2017.
Making Your Venue Look Like a Barn
You don’t have to find an actual turn of the century barn to get married in a barn. There are some essential wedding decorations that will make any venue feel rustic and earthy. Think of all the elements that you associate with a barn, and then work with a wedding rental company to transform your venue into a romantic barn wedding.
