According to annual survey from The Knot, traditional black-tie weddings at banquet halls, country clubs, and hotels have seen a steady decline over the past 10 years.  The survey revealed that nontraditional venues like farms, barns and ranches reigned supreme for 15% of couples last year in 2017.  Even if a couple isn’t actually getting married in a barn, there’s a good chance they’ll make their venue look like one.

Rustic Chic is the term used by couples for this very popular trend.  By definition, rustic is an adjective used for things related to the countryside.  In the wedding industry, “Rustic” is being applied to weddings that pay tribute to the great outdoors either through an outdoor venue or by incorporating tons of natural or nature-inspired elements. If you have spent a lot of time on Pinterest looking at wedding stuff the term and style is immediately recognizable.  

When planning your wedding definitely consider holding your nuptials in a beautiful barn and here are just a few reasons why:

A Blank Canvas

The barn provides a neutral colour scheme, and natural walls and floors.  This takes away the worry about clashing with wallpaper or carpet. Barn venues provide high ceilings, large space and pretty beams just to name a few of the fabulous features.  Barns are so versatile, they allow you to dress them up and add a touch of color, glamour and sparkle or keep things natural with a vintage, country or rustic theme.

Beautiful Settings

It is easy to fall in love with the rural setting of a country barn.
