There are a hundred possible variations of a big white wedding. While there are brides who want nothing less than the storybook wedding replete with six-foot high cakes and three dress changes, there are those who opt for something closer to their heart. For some brides, a country theme works best especially in a place like the Historic John P. Furber Farm.
Indoors or Outdoors?
One of the things you must prepare for is your wedding venue. Barn weddings in Minnesota, for example, can be held either indoors or outdoors. You can hire a cottage barn and hold the ceremony and reception indoors, so your guests don’t have to worry about the weather. A well-organized venue also has changing rooms for the bride and groom as well as the entire entourage. They go to great lengths to ensure that the bride and groom are comfortable on their big day.
The Charm of the Barn Wedding
Most couples who grew up in the country like a barn wedding theme to honor their family’s heritage. This doesn’t mean though that a barn wedding is inexpensive; there’s still a lot of preparation involved in a country wedding. Some planners only choose a more relaxed and laid-back design for the tables, chairs, and decor because they allow for mixed and match settings and shabby-chic themes.
Couples planning a country-themed wedding should always consider space. There are many fun activities in any wedding, and these often involve dancing and partying. Make sure that your planners have arranged for your different plans.
Extra Special Touches
Little touches in your invitation and wedding souvenirs could reinforce the country theme. The wedding favors and photo booth stations are also areas where you can explore the barn or country theme and have a lot of fun.
You could have that big wedding at a church, but if you want to make it unique and special, you could always choose to have a rustic country wedding.
