I haven’t used globe lights before, but I think with you description that you should have enough lighting. I know in my house (obviously much smaller than a barn) 3 candles create a dim, romantic light. You’ll want to have lower lighting for the reception anyway (romantic, gets people out dancing faster, etc), just make sure that if there are stairs they are very well lit! With up lighting, table lanterns, and ceiling lights, you sound like you’ve got it covered for the reception.

@barn_wedding: where did you find the globe string lights?  I am looking for some for my wedding and haven’t had much luck, everything has been super expensive!

we got married in a log building at a park.  We had uplighting in the ceiling, and lots of candles and white twinkle lights that were covered by tulle and it was perfect.  Let me try and upload a pic or two.

@barn_wedding: Thanks for the info!  My wedding is actually not until October so I would be very interested in buying them! The reason I started to look into them so early was because the rate my wedding planner gave me for renting them was just astronomical… much more than me just buying them myself.
