Give your rustic barn wedding a boost of glam!
If you’re planning a rustic barn wedding in Houston, Texas, there are so many unique, rustic ideas that spring to mind. But just because you are getting married in a barn, doesn’t mean you can’t have a touch of glamour to bring in the beauty. This is a wedding, after all! That’s why we are so excited with our rustic wedding venues in Houston, because they can be transformed into your dream wedding with our all-inclusive packages.
You are the star of this show! The most obvious way to add a touch of glam to your wedding day is by dressing for it yourself. Opt for an over-the-top glamorous dress to strut down the aisle and change into something a bit more laid back for the reception. To keep in step with your barn wedding, don’t go full ball gown, but look at more glamorous lace or organza dresses. Don’t forget about your hair and make-up! If you are going for a daytime, boots and beer-type barn wedding, you will want a more natural look, but spice the night up by going for a bold lip color and loose up-do to pull out a stunning, stop-‘em-in-their-tracks look!
For a barn or rustic wedding, many brides quickly go for burlap and lace. Glam up your barn wedding with tablecloths featuring a touch of sparkle, sequin or a shimmer of color. Houston is home to some of the most fabulous event decorating companies so don’t be afraid to go beyond what your facility offers. Companies like Darryl & Co. specialize in producing glamorous events, and they offer so many types of linens to choose from from drapery to exquisite table runners. Dressing up even just a few tables will give the whole room an instant facelift. Don’t be afraid to mix textures – if you are planning a spring or summer wedding, try using two different covers, for instance, a lightweight, striped pattern for some tables and a bold, and sequin texture cloth for the others. For a fall or winter wedding, look for a heavier fabric to compliment the sequin table cloth.
Did you know you can hire someone just to do lights for your big day? These people are out there! For a barn wedding, lighting is everything. We’ve given you some great tips on our blog for lighting, but if you’re looking to add something different, look for a venue that has chandeliers in their barn or consider hiring someone to bring them in. You can even use lighting to add color to your event. Use soft hues that match the color scheme of your florals or have your monogram spot-lit across the dance floor during the reception.
Flowers are essential to any wedding and especially give barn weddings a soft, elegant look. All white flowers pulled together into a large arrangement add instant glamour. A low arrangement on your guest tables surrounded by candles can also add a romantic setting to dinner – just be sure an open flame is allowed at your venue!
Is there anything more beautiful than a bride all dolled up and sitting on a gorgeous settee in the middle of a field? Well, guess what? You can bring that gorgeous setting to your ceremony or reception. Vintage and other seating options are available to rent from décor companies and some venues may even have in-house options and can create unique seating arrangements for your guests that will surely show off your glamorous side – and extra seating is always nice!
