I need some ideas on how I should decorate this metal barn for our reception. We were looking for a barn for the reception, but were hoping to find a wooden one. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to find one that wasn’t being used, but a friend said that he would lend us his. It is very large (60×60) so space will definitely not be an issue. I posted the picture of the truck so that you could see just how large the inside was and so that you could see what the walls/ceiling look like. It will be completely cleaned out for the reception. We’re going for a more country, rustic look. As you can see in the picture, there is a bathroom built into the front corner of the barn which is decorated country/rustic. I’ve considered using PVC pipe and tulle to cover the walls, but with such a large space, I’m fearing it will be quite costly. I’ve found so many ideas/threads for wooden barns but none for metal barns. PLEASE HELP! Any ideas will help.

You could string bunting across from one side to the other, or on the walls for decoration. Wonder if you could even hang it with magnets since the barn is metal…

I cant seem to find the video now, but there was one on theknot.com that a couple had made by a videograher and their reception was in a metal barn and it was beautiful! Im sorry I cant be of more help, but do think about how the noise will travel with it being metal if you have a DJ!

@uwf_cole23: that’s a good point. I didn’t even think about how it would sound in there. Thanks for the heads up!

I am all about the barn weddings, I’m very sorry I’m not having one! I don’t think it makes one bit of difference if it’s metal or wood. There is a recent episode of the David Tutera show where he does a barn wedding in TX. I think it’s my favorite! He can be over the top but a lot of very achievable ideas there. I think there are also a couple on stylemepretty.com
