We’ve gathered trends and tips on to help you upgrade your barn wedding to a rustic-chic celebration in Western North Carolina.
Theme and Decor
Set the tone with the invitations, choose stationery that’ll tie into your rustic setting. Whether it’s a simple design paired with sophisticated font or natural elements spread across your tables, make sure the theme is consistent. Before designing the invitation we recommend you layout your decor, it’s an easy way to make sure the theme matches up. You can combine draping fabrics and greenery to create an elegant atmosphere without taking away from the natural and rustic feel of the barn. For the lighting, candles are a traditional way to bring in natural warmth and light to a room. Barnwood’s pleasing neutrality allows you to use bold colors. From velvety greens and bright yellows to deep blues and vibrant pinks. Lastly, to match the natural feel use flowers and foliage to keep the design rustic or glam it up with extravagant floral arrangements to bring in the outdoors.

Lighting is an important part of the dancefloor; the right lighting will set the mood to each dance. Pixie lights are ideal for that slow dance where you gaze into your lover’s eyes, but laser lights will guide you and your bride-tribe as you dance and sing along to your favorite tunes. Our Asheville NC facilities include on-site amenities and luxurious accommodations. Start your day at our Stable Spa as you and your bridal party get pampered. The drapery doesn’t just embellish the barn it also helps with acoustics and makes the room feel more intimate by bringing the ceilings down. We recommend using neutral colors for the fabric to save the bold colors for candles and flower arrangements. You should incorporate seasonal flowers into your table display to create farm-to-table arrangements. We recommend acknowledging classic farm design elements like vintage glassware and garden florals.
An alternative to traditional cocktails or open bars would be opting for mocktails. They’re a refreshing way to serve non-alcoholic drinks, and very simple to make. Infuse simple syrup with fresh thyme and garnish with a fresh mint leaves, fruit and citrus also work as an infuser or garnish. Incorporate seasonal cuisine; farmers build their menus around what they harvest at the time. Whether you decide to order from a nearby Hendersonville NC restaurants or our gourmet meals, we suggest keeping the menu simple. It’ll make your decor pop and bring home the feeling of a farm wedding with a modern twist, tasty food in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.
Overall you’ll find that our Horse Shoe facilities are the best place for your barn wedding, nothing compares to the beautiful scenery of Asheville NC.
