Barn Style Wedding Theme

Barn style themes for weddings have been a popular choice for the last number of years. It’s a trend that has its roots in the United States and eventually made its way to this side of the pond and it’s not hard to see why the theme is so popular. Full of rustic charm and ideal for a more laid back sort of wedding day, it can make for a truly unique and spectacular look.

Thankfully the number of barn inspired venues has increased in recent years, so now couples can find a venue that will work with the theme well, but bear in mind that for whatever reason, even if you are unable to secure a barn style venue, that doesn’t mean you cannot channel the vibe with some carefully chosen décor items. Think about rustic elements, such as barrels, wood, palettes, hay, mason jars, burlap, bunting and long tables.

If you’d like to chat about this or any aspect of your wedding day décor or planning, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

 

Room Décor
String lights wound around any beams or rafters work really well, as do bistro style lights hanging over the tables. Have fun with authentic hay bale sofas and props like cowbells! Old wooden barrels make fantastic props, top them with flowers, photos of you both as a couple or why not use them as your cake or dessert stations? Wood boxes and crates work really well stacked and topped with florals and lanterns and don’t forget the burlap style bunting and lots of clever celling draping too.

Backdrops and Table Plans
Think rustic style palettes juxtaposed with soft draping for the full barn style effect. Dress any large barn doors with long chiffon draping too for maximum impact. Also think about having large table plans, again made out of wood or palettes full of ornate frames for the perfect contrast, or indeed go full barn style with something quirky like horseshoes for each table and all the guests’ names on each horseshoe. They work great as photo backdrops later in the evening too.

Tables
Long, cafeteria style tables work really well for barn style weddings. Think about having the room set up with several long table formations and also consider having no assigned seating too, which will reinforce the laid back feel of the day.

Centrepieces & Table Décor
The contrast of crisp white linen and burlap works so well for the barn theme. Also think about mason jars as your centrepieces filled with either small tea lights or gypsophila. Why not have them on stacked wooden boxed or go for mini wooden crates filled with your favourite posies? Or why not go a little wacky and have cowboy boots filled with flowers or antique style cowbells?

Free Seating Vs The Table Plan

There are certain aspects of wedding planning that can cause some potential headaches for the couple and the seating plan tends to be right up there with the best of them. There are many reasons why a seating plan can cause problems – family politics, personality clashes, groups or individuals who are shy and don’t know many other guests, where to put children and venues being strict on maximum numbers at tables. Plus as you chase those last RSVP’s and get later cancellations, it can all become a little overwhelming.

But don’t panic. The table plan doesn’t have to be a chore. Indeed, in recent times it’s becoming more and more popular to have your guests sit where or how they wish for your wedding reception, which removes the hassle from your shoulders completely and allows natural groupings to sit where they wish. Of course, this method is not without its own quirks. Indeed both approaches have lots of pros and cons, but both are worth considering. Never feel under pressure to choose either one and only go for what you know will feel right for you and your guests.

If you’d like to chat about this or any other aspect of your wedding day décor or planning, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

 

Free Seating –
The Pros –
• Ideal for smaller, more intimate weddings.
• A great choice if you’re having long tables or a more laid back style of wedding such as a glamping or festival themed wedding and works really well for a BBQ or buffet style wedding too.
• If you’re unsure as to whether completely free seating will work, then just assign guests to tables, but allow them to seat in whichever seats they wish.
• It allows natural groupings of people to come together.
• Leaves you without the headache of completing a seating plan.

The Cons
• Bear in mind that having no table plan can lead to chaos among the guests as they try to dash for a seat and some shuffling may be required to have all the tables filled.
• You may need to have extra seats or indeed tables on standby as guests may try and overfill some tables to sit with their friends or family members.
• Having no table plan can end up leaving guests feeling a little awkward if they end up being unable to sit beside people they know and are left sitting with strangers. It really depends on your guests and whether they are the sort of people who are happy to mingle with people they don’t know.

The Table Plan
The Pros
• The seating plan option works well for more formal style weddings with traditional table set ups.
• Often you and your husband or wife to be will know your guests well and you’ll know best where they should sit and who they would prefer to sit next to and a table plan allows you to do this.
• A table plan gives you complete control over the layout of the wedding. It’s the safe choice and you can minimise any possible situations where family politics, personality clashes or fiction might occur.
• This traditional option works well where you’ve got lots of mixed groups and leaving seating free may lead to some awkwardness.
• If you’ve got lots of children coming to your wedding a table plan allows you have control over whether to have a dedicated children’s table or whether you seat them with their family.
• If you like playing matchmaker and have some single friends coming to your wedding a table plan allows you to seat these singletons next to each other.

The Cons
• Some can find a table plan cuts off sections of guests from others and that groups don’t get truly to intermingle as much as with free seating.
• It can be a headache to put together a seating plan if you have some possible personality clashes on the cards and your venue is being a stickler on having a set number of people per table.
• Table plans can come across as quite formal and if you are going for a more laid back vibe at your wedding, then it may not be for you.

Tropical Wedding Theme

While you may not be jetting off to the tropics for your wedding day and the possibility of Ireland suddenly morphing into Hawaii being low, that doesn’t mean you can’t channel the exotic in your wedding day décor! And if you love all things bright and beautiful and want to inject some serious fun into your day, then this theme is really worth considering.

Think pineapples, coconuts, flamingos, rainforests, palm trees, banana leaves, cocktails, tiki torches, pinks, greens, yellows and lots of Hawaiian style. It’s possible to inject some tropical fun into practically all aspects of your day and the best thing is that much of these touches are both easy to source and on the whole inexpensive too. The main thing to remember with this one is to have lots of fun and really go for it.

If you’d like to chat about this or any aspect of your wedding day décor, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

 

Pew Ends

No matter if you’re walking down the aisle of a church or another venue, having pineapples at the base of your pews or chairs is a fantastic way to kick things off! Also consider palm leaves tied with flowers and look for brightly coloured exotic flowers if you can. Banana leaves rolled into cones filled with petals look stunning too and if you’re saying ‘I do’ outdoors then why not go for tiki torches?

Centrepieces and Table Décor

Centrepieces are always an essential cog in your wedding day décor and channelling the tropical will really add the wow factor. Think hollowed out pineapples with tropical coloured flowers inside and tall birds of paradise or green bamboo.  Palm and banana leaves work so well as place settings. Think of using rainbow cocktail umbrellas as place names. Have large shells filled with tropical flowers or give each guest a Hawaiian leis as their escort card or place name.

Room Décor

Placing some carefully chosen props around your venue will further cement your theme and add lots of fun to the day. Bamboo would work wonders for a backdrop, as would some flamingos, even the inflatable kind would work well! And if you’re having a DIY photobooth they’d be great as props, as would hula skirts and Hawaiian shirts and Hawaiian leis for guests to play around with. Don’t forget the light up Aloha signs and surf boards too!

Food and Drinks

Finally have fun with the food and drinks! And what could be more tropical than drinking out of a coconut! And they don’t even have to be real coconuts, source kitsch plastic ones and serve welcome cocktails or ‘mocktails’ to your guests on arrival! Or forego the coconuts and have some colourful pink cocktails or creamy Pina Coladas instead.  Exotic fruit is also a must with fun skewers or even trees made out of fruit for guests to enjoy.
