It's A Rustic Affair: 3 Tips For Planning The Perfect Barn Wedding


If you've been dreaming of a rustic wedding, don't forget to book the barn. A rustic wedding isn't complete without the barnyard ceremony. One of the great things about choosing a barn for your rustic wedding, is that the groundwork has already been laid. You'll just need to bring in the finishing touches, like the hay, the flowers, and the twinkling lights hanging from the beams. You'll also need to take care of a few other details, to make sure that everything is perfect for your big day. Here are three details that will help you put together a rustic wedding to remember.

Be Sure You Can Power-Up

When you're planning your rustic barn wedding, it's important to remember that not all barns are created equal. Some of them are going to be better equipped for your celebration than others are. If you're planning on using twinkling lights and bringing in a DJ for your reception, you'll want to make sure that you can power up. Be sure that the barn you choose is equipped with enough electrical outlets to power your party. If it doesn't, you'll need to either choose a different barn venue or bring in portable generators to power your wedding.

Plan the Perfect Entrance

If you're going to be having a rustic barn wedding, don't forget to plan the perfect entrance. You want your guests to take notice of your big entrance. One way to do that is to have your wedding party arrive on a hayride. If you're more of a John Deere tractor kind of person, make your big entrance on a tractor. If you prefer horses, arrange to arrive on horseback. You can personalize your arrival to suit your personality.

Be Prepared for the Allergies

If you're going to be having a rustic barn wedding, it's best to remember that some of your guests may have allergies. Go ahead and plan your wedding the way you want it, but be prepared to provide relief for those allergies. One way to do that is to cover hay bales with coordinating covers that match your wedding colors. Another way to take care of allergies is to have individual packets of allergy relief medications available for allergy sufferers. It's also important that you provide a brief allergy reminder on your save-the-dates or your wedding invitations. Your guests will appreciate the advance warning about the potential allergy triggers.
