Oh, how I adore barn wedding receptions! Emma here and barn weddings are, in my opinion, the perfect pairing of a rustic outdoor wedding with a little extra comfort for guests. It also offers less stress for the bride, since weather for an outdoor wedding can be unpredictable. Although tents provide some reassurance, a barn is a pretty safe bet; inside a barn reception, guests can stay warm and enjoy strolling appetizers, seated dinner, a full-scale bar, and a solid dance floor. Just a few steps outside, though, they can enjoy a stroll along wildflower fields underneath an illuminated starry night sky. Ah, isn’t it romantic? Barn weddings have been trending for quite awhile now and we don’t see this craze going away anytime soon! Today we’re showing you twenty-one barn reception ideas for weddings to get your creativity flowing. Which number is your favorite? I’m obsessed with #21. I guess you could say I saved the best for last. Just wait until you see it! Enjoy!

Wedding signs are one of the coolest (and easiest) ways to personalize your ceremony and reception spaces. Most of the time, signs are the easiest thing to add because a sign can stand up on its own or be placed on a simple easel, like this, right at your ceremony or reception entrance. Guests always seem to take notice of signs and couples love them too! We’ve seen couples go crazy over wedding welcome signs, directional signs, signage at the bar (like a signature cocktail sign), chair signs, ceremony aisle signs, and even this fun printable bathroom sign. And while you could place signage throughout your entire wedding space, we recommend just a few. As with most things, just a few will do so you aren’t overwhelming your space.

Winter weddings hold a special place in my heart because we tied the knot in December. It was a beautiful day and oddly, not as cold as one would think. It snowed just a little bit when we left the church — enough to capture a beautiful flurry on camera and accentuate the beauty of winter. When you’re looking for decorations for winter weddings, it can be tough to know where to start. If you don’t want something holiday-ish (like a red and green wedding) you might not want an icy blue one either. But what are you supposed to do? How do you pull it all together, and where do you even start with decorations? Well, I’m glad you asked because we just found the easiest, most beautiful decorations for winter weddings available and you can get them all in one complete package. We spotted these at Dream Wedding Box where winter weddings are a favorite of theirs. They love decorations so much they’ve created a “complete wedding package” complete with wedding signs and chalkboard signs, garland, table numbers, table number holders, banners, drink signs, gold sequin table runners, and bride and groom chair signs. They’ve created winter wedding decorations in a complete package so the guesswork is done: just purchase it and assemble at your wedding. From these decorations, you can gather inspiration for your color palette and then incorporate everything else where you see fit — your save the date, invitations, cake topper, favors, and more. In this decor package, you’ll receive eight types of decorations for winter weddings with a few of each.

Candle Centerpiece Idea -- Handmade-a-Day

by VENdecor handmade

Earlier this week, we talked about ways to save money on your wedding. One of those tips was to choose non-floral centerpieces instead of large floral blooms. As inspiration, we are sharing this candle centerpiece idea from VEN Decor Handmade. It features handmade green leaf garland and a trio of candles in the center. Romantic lighting is always a welcome addition to your reception space and we love how this candle centerpiece comes together. Did you know each leaf is made of green crepe paper and completely handmade? That’s pretty incredible.
