I have been to a barn wedding. in fact, my brother got married in a barn last september, and i am the maid of honor in my best friend’s wedding next august, who is also getting married in a barn.

at my brother’s wedding, i couldn’t say there was a single con to the venue. even though there were shavings on the ground and we sat on hay bales, it was still amazing. it was so unique and everyone danced and partied their asses off. the pictures from that night are TO DIE for because the barn was so beaiutiful.

just let people know on your website that it is at a barn, and they want to dress/wear shoes accordingly. other than that, there is NOTHING to worry about!

I was a bridesmaid in my girlfriend’s wedding and it was in a barn.  I LOVED it…but I’m a little bit country like that. 🙂  Only problem was there wasn’t any a/c (which typically would be ok in October in Cincinnati)…it turned out to be like 98 that day so it was a little warm…the cake definitely did not hold up well.  I woul dhave loved to have my wedding in a barn but I couldn’t find one large enough to accomodate our guest list.

I’ve never been to one, but that’s how mine will be in a week.  I’m also doing hydrangeas, but mostly blues!  And twinkle lights!! Great minds think alike 🙂 

I’ll put up pictures as soon as I can to give you an idea of how it worked.

I HAD a barn wedding! : )  It was actually an old barn, but it had been updated quite a bit and it sounds like it would be similar to the place you are looking at.  We still had a very formal wedding, but with some rustic charm.  And our place is actually on a working farm and they have their own restaurant too so the food is A-MAZING.  I would absolutely say go for it!  We really had no complaints or regrets.
