Altar backdrops come in many sizes and styles, from rustic wood, to elegant metallic fabrics. You can use an altar backdrop to frame the wedding couple, draw attention to the wedding vows or readings, or simply create a beautiful visual focal point for your wedding photos. When choosing an altar backdrop for your wedding barn venue, consider how it will work with the natural landscape. If you’re looking for an eye-catching, but subtle statement piece, try adding a few pieces of greenery, or floral arrangements around the edge of your backdrop.

A Statement Centerpiece

You can also create beautiful centerpieces for your wedding that will wow your guests! You’ll be able to enjoy the romantic atmosphere of a wedding barn while also having an amazing display at your wedding reception. Here are some tips on how to create a stunning wedding barn centerpiece, that will reflect your own style:

  • Choose flowers that match your color palette. Consider using wildflowers or local blooms that add to the rustic atmosphere of your wedding location.
  • Look for items you can use as vessels for the flowers like antique vases, or birdcages. These will give your centerpieces a unique and personal touch.
  • Incorporate materials such as wood, and stone to give your wedding a more natural look.
  • Add various heights and sizes of elements to create depth and texture. Think about using books, candlesticks, crates, boxes, or other items as part of your centerpiece.
  • Consider adding some sparkle with metallic accents such as gold twigs or silver votives. This will add elegance, without taking away from the rustic charm that is desired when doing a barn wedding.

Add Fun Lights

Light signs are the perfect addition to any wedding. Not only do they add a touch of elegance and sophistication, but also an extra bit of fun. Whether you choose to have your names, or initials in lights, a romantic message for your loved one, or just something special to share with all your guests. Fairy lights, fun lamps and hanging lights will make your special day memorable. Plus, they look great at night and provide a beautiful ambiance that will stay with you long after the event is over.

Dress The Ceiling

Often in barn weddings, the large space will seem overwhelming and hard to decorate. Drapes and chandeliers will make your barn wedding looks more luxurious and elegant. They provide an exquisite backdrop for wedding photos and give your wedding a special touch. Drapes are available in many colors, materials, and lengths, so you can find something to suit any wedding theme or color scheme. Chandeliers can also be chosen for their size, style, and finish to create a beautiful statement piece that will add splendor to your wedding venue. These decorative elements can help reduce noise levels if they are hung from the ceiling, by absorbing sound vibrations. Adding drapes or chandeliers is an easy way to elevate your venue, so you can feel like royalty on your special day!
