Ideas for Decorating a Barn for a Country Wedding

Updated April 17, 2017

If you are planning a country-style wedding, a barn can be the perfect place to hold the event. This article will touch on a few ideas that can transform an old barn into a beautiful wedding venue.


Before you begin decorating your barn, decide whether your wedding style will be rustic and simple, romantic, sophisticated or so on. You will also need to consider the size of the barn you will need to use. This will depend on the number of guests you plan to invite and whether you will have the reception in the barn as well.


Rows of hay bales lined with satin runners would be a great addition to a romantic wedding. Another option might be to purchase or rent pristine white wooden folding chairs for your guests. This would add a touch of elegance to your barn wedding.


Wildflowers and sunflowers would be perfect additions to a barn wedding. Pairing country flowers with beautiful roses can create a rustic and romantic feel to the theme.


String hundreds of twinkle lights along the ceiling and walls of the barn with large candles throughout the barn to add a gorgeous touch to a sunset wedding.


Yards of tulle draped over chairs or aisle markers tied with rope and accented with wildflowers can help carry the country theme of the wedding while adding a little sophistication to the decor.
