Have you booked a barn for your wedding venue? How lucky you are, I love this style of venue. Whether your barn is a traditional barn with old beams and exposed brickwork or a newer style barn with polished beams and glass you have made a great choice.
Just because you have chosen a barn style venue doesn't mean you HAVE to go completely RUSTIC with your venue and table styling. Yes, it's nice to choose a style that complements your venue choice but this post is meant to help you understand how you can add some glamour to your barn wedding styling. We have chosen to focus our ideas on rustic styling with a hint of gold. Of course, you could choose other metallics to create the same look - brass - silver - copper...
20+ Barn Wedding Styling Ideas with a Hint of Gold
Barn Styling Ideas - with a touch of gold
Backdrops look great against exposed brickwork, try large hoops with an asymmetric floral design and a load of cylinder vases at the base for a ceremony backdrop.
There are endless possibilities for your tables, I am drawn to garlands along wooden tables for a rustic barn venue. Luxury flowers such as roses with textured foliage and berries to make a garland running along the table is always a stunning option, add in small gold tea light holders and bud vases for an elegant look. (Gold tea light holders available to purchase here)
For round tables I love tree slices for centrepieces, either one in the centre or a stack with small bud vases. These really look great in barns and are an easy DIY centrepice if you want to have a go yourself. (Tree slices available purchase here)
Candlesticks really are essential in my opinion for creating this rustic glamour look. Simply style with a cream cotton table runner, lose laid eucalyptus foliage and brass and gold or brass candlesticks. (Gold candlesticks available to purchase here or bronze candlesticks here)
Create a backdrop for your wedding cake. Whether you are having a traditional wedding cake or donut tower, why not make is a focal point for your decor. Hang flowers and foliage on silk ribbons above the cake and copious amounts tea light holders behind look WOW.
Place settings are a great way to get your style across, a small spring or cluster of foliage on each napkin tied with twine can look stunning. If you are giving individual menus for each guest lay them on the plate too. (Twine cane be purchased here)
For a more rustic look, small wooden tree slices can be personalised with your guest's names. Either write on them yourself, enlist the help of a friend with artistic handwriting or ask an expert. (Small wooden tree slice place settings can be purchased online here)
Table runners will really set the look of your tables, opt for natural linen in colours of your choice. You can even add lovely finishing touches at the end of the tables - a sprig of roesmary tied with twine for a lovely scent as guests enter the room.
