The 6 Best Design Tips for a Simple Barn Wedding

We were recently inspired by one of the manifestos for Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Market about their mission to bring life and love into the home.
“Of all heroic pursuits large or small, we believe there may be none greater than a life well loved.” – Magnolia Manifesto
We think it's also the perfect manifesto for a simple barn wedding and the start of your life as a new couple! Using this manifesto and Joanna Gaines' aesthetic as our guide we are sharing 6 design tips to create a wedding reception that exudes life and love in a modern farm aesthetic. simple barn wedding  
The key to creating a wedding reception fit for any Joanna Gaines fan is to create a space that feels lived in and personal.

6 design tips for a simple barn wedding reception:

  1. The color palette should include neutral colors like: gray, white, pale pink, tan, or soft yellow.  
  2. Use greenery as your accent color and accessorize the space with wooden decor, like these wooden heart confetti.
  3. Your dinnerware and glasses should be traditional and again go for a clean neutral color here. For another pop of color on your neutral table you can consider using copper and bronze utensils and decor.
  4. Mason jars. Mason Jars everywhere. You can use them everywhere from the dinner table, to centerpieces, to the guestbook table and more. They are cheap and handy in a lot of ways. 
  5. Borrow or purchase mix-n-match wood furniture for the chairs and reception tables. As we mentioned above, the key to this aesthetic is making it feel "lived in". 
  6. Have fun personalizing your reception tables with chalkboard elements.

Elopement Etiquette | What you need to know!

Is there such a thing as Elopement Etiquette?

Planning a wedding today takes a lot of time and money. Which tends to equal stress. The average cost of a traditional wedding is upwards of $20,000! This rules out the budget of a lot of newly engaged couples. Pamela Paul, author of The Starter Marriage and Future of Matrimony, says "They're sort of thinking it's either $25,000 on a wedding or $25,000 on a down payment.” So it makes sense that couples are choosing to elope more now than ever before and are asking if there really is an elopement etiquette. Traditional or not, Elopements are in! Elopement Etiquette Eloping has had a negative connotation in the past. However, it’s not about rebellious teenage courthouse hitchings anymore. Instead, it's couples choosing intimacy and affordability. A typical elopement today is more defined by simplicity, a beautiful destination, and a short guest list. This turn from the rebellious to being a type of wedding means that you have some elopement etiquette that you can use to guide your wedding planning.

Elopement Planning

First off, spending a little time planning will make your small wedding personalized, less stressful, and more memorable. Actually, businesses are starting up around the country to help! For example, “Flora Pop” is a traveling pop-up elopement company offering planning services for small ceremonies of 15 people or less.

Elopement Etiquette

Whether you wait until after the deed is done or you’re inviting them to attend, let your family know! A personal invite over the phone or even sending a formal card works fine. Do what makes the most sense for you!
Are you a wanderlust bride?
Avoid unpleasant surprises by taking into account questions like these when planning your destination ceremony:
  • Is there a waiting period after your marriage license application?
  • What documentation is required (drivers license, birth certificate, divorce decree from former marriage, etc.)?
  • What is the cost of a marriage license?
  • How much does the pastor or judge charge to perform the ceremony?
  • How much does it cost to hold the wedding at the venue of your choice?

Next, Consider the No-Brainers of a Traditional Wedding for your Elopement

Send marriage announcements!
Let your friends and family celebrate with you even if they couldn't be there on your special day! After some enough time has passed for them to receive the announcement, try sending them an email with photos of your wedding and honeymoon! Why?They’ll get a sense of involvement this way and will enjoy hearing about your adventures. Plus, you may not want a big wedding, but that doesn't mean you don't want to share the best day of your life with all the people you love. This is a great way to do just that.
To register or not to register?
Go for it, especially if you are having a small post-marriage reception! Really, it's a good idea to let your loved ones support you. Plus, it's never a bad thing to let them shower you with gifts as you start your life as a married couple. You can always add your registry to your marriage announcement. Although, you don’t want to forget to send thank you cards out as soon as possible!
