Wedding Inspiration: Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Week! Whether you're celebrating with your new boyfriend, your husband of 20 years, your kids, or your Galentines, we hope your day is fun, sweet, and full of chocolate, and we hope you feel spoiled and so very loved!

Even though Valentine's Day is admittedly the cheesiest holiday ever, we can't help but love wedding details inspired by February 14th. Valentine's Day parties or weddings need lots of hearts, pink and red, pops of glitter, and sweet, romantic details. Here are some glam ideas for Valentine's Day parties or weddings! xoxo

Wedding Inspiration: Spring Fever

It's only early Februaryand I've already got spring fever! I'm anxiously awaiting warmer weather, longer days and spring blooms. Our spring wedding season will be here before we know it! Our weddings keep getting better year after year, so I'm really excited to see what our team has in store for our 2019 couples. I’ve heard there are some really unique details in the works already for this year, and I can’t wait!

Spring weddings are maaaaybe my favorites. (I think I say this about every season, but you know. ;) The Barn in spring is the most gorgeous backdrop for a wedding, when the landscape turns green and everything starts to bloom. Spring was made for pastel color palettes, lush bouquets and floral arrangements, and sweet, colorful details. Here are just a few of my favorite spring-inspired wedding details from past weddings at The Barn!

Wedding Inspiration: Spring Bouquets

It’s so darn cold in Arkansas, and we can’t wait for warmer days, sunny skies, bright colored flowers, and spring weddings! Just for fun, I wanted to share some of our past spring bouquets. Spring is the perfect time for pastel flowers, lots of fresh greenery, and fun pops of color. Our florals are always the absolute best, so I know our upcoming spring brides are going to have some unique, completely stunning bouquets! Can't wait to see them! If you're needing inspiration for your own wedding bouquet, or if you just have major heart eyes over spring bouquets like I do, look no further! Here are some of the prettiest spring wedding bouquets ever, from past spring weddings at The Barn!

Wedding Inspiration: Sweet Signs

It's obviously super important to pay attention to the big details of your wedding: the altar, aisle, florals, cake, reception tables... All the things your guests will pay a lot of attention to, and things that will be highly photographed. But if you ask us, all the little tiny details in between are what make your wedding day all your own. I'm talking about things like: the tiniest details of your place settings, down to the straws and napkin holders; pretty guestbook table details; and things that add just a touch of personality throughout your wedding decor. Although these items may be small, they all add up to create a look and theme that is customized just for you! One great detail that we love to incorporate into ceremony and reception decor: signage! Signs for the ceremony, reception, menu and bar... Chalkboard signs, hand-lettered signs, painted signs, pallet signs, and everything in between!

At The Barn, we take our signs seriously! Some of our most photographed details at The Barn are our signs... The ones lining the road to The Barn, our "espresso and a puppy" sign, and the "I do's, we did's" sign by the ceremony site. Here are some gorgeous signs, from weddings at The Barn and around the web!

Wedding Inspiration: New Year's Eve!

I hope y'all had a very Merry Christmas! Congratulations to all of you who got a big shiny rock out on your fingers last week! If you're considering The Barn as your wedding venue, get ahold of us ASAP! Seriously, we book up far in advance, and we don't want you to miss out on your preferred wedding date.

Even if you didn't get a ring over Christmas, keep in mind that New Year’s Eve is also a super popular date for proposals, so perhaps tonight will be your lucky night! What could be more romantic than your love dropping to one knee as the clock strikes midnight?! Speaking of NYE... I am always obsessed with weddings and events that have a sparkly, glamorous, chic NYE-inspired theme. Think glitter, black and white, gold, and lots of champagne. If you're unsure of how to decorate for your NYE bash, or if you're into chic, glittery weddings, here's plenty of New Years Eve wedding and event inspiration! Have a fun, safe NYE! See y’all in the new year with one of the prettiest weddings everrrr.
