Where are you located? Can I stop by to see The Barn? We are located right outside of Dardanelle, Arkansas, on over 35 acres of gorgeous land! Due to our very busy schedule, we do not allow drop-in visits. If you are interested in seeing The Barn, please contact us to set up a time! 

Do you have my date available? How far in advance should I book my date? Hopefully so! We book up way in advance for larger weddings, but since we can plan elopements so quickly, we can often book an elopement with only a few days’ notice. (Literally, as long as we have enough time to get your flowers in, we can pull off an elopement. We've put elopements together in as little as three days!) 2018 is almost completely full, and 2019 is filling up quickly. Our best advice... don't wait! If you think you want a date, go for it. :)

I’m interested in The Barn, and I have a wedding date chosen. I'm just not sure if The Barn is my final choice, so can you hold my date until I decide? Our dates are in very high demand, and for that reason, we do not hold dates. They are booked on a first come, first serve basis. If you think you want it, book it. That's our best advice. Many of our couples book The Barn without ever seeing it!

What is the fee for renting The Barn? This totally depends on the collection you choose. Our elopements start at $1,850. For larger weddings, we prefer not to list our pricing online, because every wedding is so drastically different. Contact us with your wedding needs, and we’ll be happy to give you a precise quote! And just an FYI, you can’t rent our venue! (This means we don't rent just the venue... it's all or nothing, y'all!)

What exactly does the price include? Every collection we offer is all-inclusive. For elopements, this means designer florals, ceremony decor (including a gorgeous altar), a cake and cake display are all included. For full-on weddings, this means designer florals, ceremony and reception details (including linens, dinnerware and all decor), an instrumentalist for your ceremony,  cake, catering, entertainment, a bar, and so much more. Each collection includes planning, coordination, set-up and tear-down. We are happy to add stationery, favors, and even honeymoon planning to your collection as well. We are truly a one stop shop! We offer just about everything but the dress. :)

What does The Barn not provide? You will need to bring your photographer and officiant, and we are happy to help you find the perfect ones! Check out our list of preferred photographers to find one that fits your budget and style.

What collections do you offer? Classic Elopements. Sip-Sip Celebrate Elopements. Simply Sweet. Rustic Chic. Pearl Snaps. Diamond Horseshoe. We offer a collection for everyone, and they are all completely customizable! Contact us for all the details!

How many people can The Barn hold? We can accommodate up to 200 folks!

How many hours will we get to be at The Barn? Couples who book our Classic Elopement collection get The Barn to themselves for two hours. For the Sip-Sip Celebrate elopements, it’s three hours. And our full-blown wedding collections allow for five to eight hours onsite, depending on the collection you choose. 

Where should our guests park? We have a large, grassy lot that’s just a short walk from The Barn. It’s marked with lots of cute signs, so your guests can’t miss it!

Do y'all do set up and tear down? Yes, for EVERY wedding! Having someone to set up and tear down your wedding decor is worth its weight in gold, if you ask us. 

Is there a back-up location if the weather is bad? Yep! We will move your ceremony inside The Barn if the weather doesn’t cooperate on your big day. It’ll be just as pretty and even more romantic and magical, promise!

If our ceremony and reception are held in the same area, how will you quickly transition the space with guests present? Unless the weather is just straight up crazy, we will ask your guests to go out on The Barn’s lawn or out to our covered patio while our team quickly and flawlessly transitions The Barn from a ceremony into a reception. Your guests can have a cocktail and maybe some hours d’oeuvres while they wait, and we promise it won’t take long! Our talented team has this process down to an art!

Is there a bridal suite or a groom's suite? Yes, we have both! Our Bridal Suite is the perfect place for a bride and her entourage to get ready for the big day. There are restrooms, mirrors for primping, a comfy chaise, a kitchen and plenty of seating inside. We even have a closet stocked with wedding day essentials and emergency items! Our Groom’s Room is such a fun hangout for the groom and his guys to have a couple drinks in while the ladies get ready. ;)
