If your dreams of walking down the aisle to say your wedding vows include burlap, sunflowers, and rustic charm, then having a country theme wedding at a barn is probably topping your list of wedding must-haves. You’ve come to the right place. We know weddings inside and out having catered so many over the years and know that adding just the right glam and originality is necessary to execute a truly enchanting country barn wedding.
Here is a guide to picking the right venue, caterer and deciding on all the details for your big day. Sit back, take notes and leave the rest to us.
First things first, you need to settle on the type of wedding you’d like to have. Something outdoors? A large number of guests? Will you have a specific theme? Barn, country-style weddings that take place outdoors among vast fields are all similar but can be very different also. Once you narrow down exactly the vibe you’re going for and what setting is needed to achieve that, you can then begin your search for the perfect venue for your wedding.
Choosing a Venue
Choosing a venue can be tricky. Here’s why. Not all locations include top-notch services or any additional amenities for the day. To make the whole day possible you’re going to likely need to enlist the help of an event planner, caterer, and other vendors. Working with a team of professionals experienced in weddings at these locations will ensure your big day is hiccup free!
Are you going to be inside a barn? Will you need to think about lighting? If it’s outdoors and rustic is the theme, how about incorporating hay bales? There’s so much to consider!
Can’t Forget the Food
Let’s be honest. While the vows are incredible and the décor tops off the night, everyone really comes for the food. If you really want to have a wedding that leaves a lasting impression and wows all your guests you need to ensure the food your serving is top quality. Have fun with the menu, choose dishes that exude you and your spouse’s personality and don’t be afraid to throw in some surprise treats (like after-dancing munchies or a dessert bar!)
