Wedding Planning Tips for Barn Weddings
- Make peace with changing weather. Even though you may have originally been planning for an outdoor ceremony, the skies can change in a moments notice and you can end up indoor for your ceremony. This is par for the course when dealing with a primarily outdoor venue. If the idea of having to move things inside doesn’t appeal to you, you may want to opt for a location that is weather proof instead. Make sure your hair + makeup artist are also aware of what kind of atmosphere you’ll be in so they can adjust their techniques and product accordingly (hot + humid outdoor events can be approached differently than climate controlled ballroom events).
- Airflow + ventilation. Every barn is different – some have doors on various sides that can create a cross breeze while others don’t. Make sure to talk to the venue about airflow and what the average temp can be. Summers can be pretty hot and when you put 100+ people together in the same room things can get even warmer. If there isn’t a relatively reasonable cross breeze option, ask about how many fans can be brought in to ensure that air is circulated and people are comfortable.
- Bring the entertainment! Since most people opt to do photos between the ceremony and reception, make sure that you have plenty of games and entertainment (as well as food) for your guests to enjoy while you sneak away for a few pictures.
