Use rustic do-it-yourself decorations to complement the country charm of a barn wedding. Some popular barn wedding accents and decorations include items made from wood, twine, Mason jars, and burlap. Twinkle lights strung across ceilings or over dance floors are also popular barn wedding decorations.
Use candle holders made from tree branches with the bark still on. Use decorative clothespins to artistically hang photos or place cards on twine. Spell out short phrases or directions for guests with a string of lettered wooden rectangles. Mix burlap and lace to create flowers, table runners or decorative wall hangings.
Popular color schemes for barn weddings include mostly neutral shades of cream, light brown, and pale pastels with occasional accents of bight colors. Mason jars are popular as drinking glasses, as wedding favors, and as candle holders or lanterns.
Paint directions for guests on plain wooden signs. Use pine cones or slices from tree branches to decorate tables. Decorate with antique-looking items that are reminiscent of farm life such as cast iron trivets, cow bells, or copper kettles. Other popular motifs include wooden or fabric birds, horseshoes, antique glass bottles, the couple's initials carved in wood, and heart-shaped wreaths made from dried vines.
