If you are interested in throwing your own country barn wedding reception, check out these easy country barn reception decor ideas. You’re well on your way to a perfectly rustic wedding.
Country Barn Reception Decor Ideas: Lighting
When it comes to lighting for a country barn wedding reception, there are many different ideas to work with. From string lights to galvanized bin lamps, and chic chandeliers. There’s something that everyone will love at least a little. One of my brides found a chandelier like the one below at a thrift store and spray painted it to match her color scheme. It made a great accessory over her altar! But if a chandelier isn’t quite your style, try covering the exposed lights in the barn with homemade galvanized bin lighting. All you have to do is cut a hole in the bin that is the size of the light bulb. Don’t these look seriously amazing?

Your centerpiece says a lot about you, so it’s important to make sure that it is saying the right thing. Here are my favorite centerpiece ideas for a country barn wedding.
