It’s no secret I am in love with barns, in a post I wrote a couple of days ago I confessed my dream of living in a barn. Now I want to share with you some more photos of barn related inspiration for having a country barn wedding. For me, barns are the perfect balance, they offer open cathedral like space with a beautiful rustic atmosphere. I’ve always stated that I want to get married outside and not in a church (I’m not religious so I would feel it hypocritical, and church weddings are boring and over rated in my opinion) so having a ceremony in the barn provides shelter to take away the worry about what the weather is going to be like, while still having that sense of being outside and in the country.
There are so many options in terms of decorating the barn for your country wedding. I envision lots of string lights made from recycled mason jars or wine bottles and old reclaimed dining tables; preferably made from other reclaimed barn wood. Depending on the size of the barn you could also have the ceremony or reception just outside of the barn, the options really are endless when you have a nice old barn for shelter and big open country property to make use of.
I have to say this one is by far the cutest picture I have ever seen from a country barn wedding!
