Whether you come from a farm background or you can’t resist the rustic charm, barn weddings are a great option for many Alabama weddings. It lets your guests relax and unwind together, and offers the best of both worlds of indoor and outdoor weddings. 

Gorgeous Views

The landscape at a barn wedding will give you and your guests plenty of natural beauty to enjoy. If it’s a destination wedding, visitors will appreciate having the natural scenery and background to see, as well as the fresh air of the great outdoors.

Inside, the one-of-a-kind look of a barn for your photos will be eye-catching and timeless – especially if your venue has updated the interior of its barn. It creates a classic backdrop for the happiest day of your life.

When deciding on a theme for your barn wedding, consider the history of the space and its purpose when it was built. This is especially true if you’re having an outdoor wedding at a fully-restored farmhouse or barn that was once used to house horses or cattle.

A vintage vibe will add a rustic, classic touch to your barn wedding look while a shabby-chic feel gives a farmhouse flair and a casual elegance. Whichever you choose, the charm of the vintage barn is sure to be captured in your photos for generations to come.

Luxury Wedding Experience with a Barn Wedding

Barn weddings are perfect for couples looking to embrace the rustic wedding trend while creating closeness with the people they love most.

If you’re planning on having your ceremony in an open space on a property with beautiful scenery, consider bringing elements of nature indoors. For example, bring in some flowers or greenery from outside to decorate simple vases on the table or an empty barrel for your guest book.

Bridesmaids can accessorize their dresses with a flower crown, adding touches of the outdoors to the classic bridal party look.

For couples who want to go all out and create a true farmhouse atmosphere, you can choose decor that features vintage details like mismatched china patterns and antique signs.


Fresh From The Farm Food

Having local food and ingredients for your wedding party gives another way to celebrate the traditional farm setting, and your guests will love knowing that you took extra steps to make your wedding day special.

See if your wedding venue provides fresh farm-to-table options for receptions. This adds a nice layer of sustainability to your wedding – and it’s delicious! 

Wedding Cake Options

You can show your guests that you value farm-to-table by serving the same kind of cake you would have at a traditional wedding reception, but with elements that are unique to your chosen setting. For example, if your wedding was outside, your cake could be adorned with fresh flowers.
