An obvious choice of venue for a rustic themed wedding reception is a barn! Don’t live in a rural area? Don’t worry there are barns all over the country in all different sizes. There are ways of decoration to make it formal if that’s what you are going for or to keep it casual. This type of venue is a perfect way to be unique and create an intimate ceremony.
Instead of using traditional glass vases as a centerpiece, use carved out pumpkins with flowers! This is a unique way to add another color to your palette and is the perfect addition if you are having your rustic wedding during the autumn!
To go more country, have your bridesmaids wear cowboy boots with their bridesmaid dresses!
Barns tend to be very dark so a lot of lighting is essential in creating a good environment. To create an intimate setting use string lighting across the ceiling as well as lanterns on each table. If you are having a more formal reception, have a few chandeliers hanging from the ceiling to add elegance.
