    I’d love to. I think you can have a really gorgeous wedding at a barn. But i couldn’t find any locally and its just alot of extra work.

    I think barn weddings can be done beautifully!  I think one of the biggest challenges is finding one that is meant for event rentals and not being actively used for storage, ect.

    I love barn weddings!  I would have killed to have one, but the future hubby is a city boy through and through!

    I love barn weddings.  We chose to go with a different outdoor venue in the end though.

    We weren’t planning on it, but it was the only place nearby we could afford!

    We’re paying $350 to rent the barn from 8am Saturday morning until midnight that night, and they’re letting us come back on Sunday morning to clean up.  That also includes tables and chairs for up to 200 guests.

    I basically am! It’s a building in a county park, but it looks exactly like a barn.

    We looked into renting a few actual barns, but most were out of our price range ($5k or more) and too far from any hotels to be feasible.

    I don’t know if its just the area but i’m in but barn wedding venues are easily twice as much as any other venue. Its like SO popular around here. Which ofcourse i didn’t know until i started looking for venues. I had my heart set on a barn – finding one i could afford was nothing short of a miracle!

    I thought about that idea when we looked at a few properties with onsite barns, but our zoning would have precluded us from following through. So just a tip, and maybe you’ve already checked, but look at the zoning rules for the properties in question to see if they would allow for event rental/hosting.

    i heard ALOT of 5k prices when i was looking… what was included? nothing just the venue. (a few did have tables and chairs) a few were 3 or 4k. i almost gave in and did the 3k one when i found  one for 1200. Again a miracle. They could do it though because everyone wanted barn weddings so people would pay it no matter what.

    We’re not having a barn wedding reception, but I love this idea!!!  Our theme is very “rustic chic”, a traditional wedding with lots of rustic elements mixed in.  Our families are from rural communities, so there just weren’t any options that we knew of in that area.  However, we are doing our reception at a local orchard that has a new reception venue, which I think will turn out great too!
