The Best Barn Wedding Venues That Are Full of Rustic Charm

There’s nothing quite like barn wedding venues. Most come with built-in charm that just can’t be duplicated in other venues, no matter how hard you try. Best of all, barn wedding venues are great for both intimate affairs and those with long guest lists.

Other perks include incredible views of mountains or rolling fields, privacy, and generally more freedom to make the space your own; whether that’s in terms of decor or by bringing in furry friends.

Many times, you can also find barn wedding venues that allow you to bring in your own wedding vendors — something that can be a positive or negative, depending on how much planning you’re willing to do. Before you become set on a barn wedding venue, you should also consider factors like your guest list. Will there be a lot of older guests or anyone in a wheelchair? Then you’ll need to ensure there’s multiple accessible restrooms no steep stairs anywhere. The same goes for parking — is there a paved area, and if not, will most guests still be able to drive and walk without getting stuck? Try and consider different possibilities like these ahead of time.

But even with challenges like these, a barn wedding is not only still possible, but a great choice for many brides to be. If you’re looking to say “I do” somewhere that’s both authentic and rustic, check out a few of our favorite barn wedding venues across the U.S. below!
