What You Should and Shouldn’t Rent for Your Barn Wedding

Combing through detail after detail to determine the look, feel and style of your wedding is easily one of the most exciting parts of the wedding planning process. Choosing the theme, color palette, floral arrangements, and entertainment are just a few elements that dictate the overall vision and scope of design for your big day. 

While planning your barn wedding in Florida, you will discover a list of things you need to buy as well as a list of things you need to rent. Your choice of venue will often guide those decisions depending on what’s included in your venue fee. Regardless, we encourage couples to remember that some items serve as the perfect memento to keep and enjoy for years to come, while others only serve you that day. 

Let’s take a look at some guiding principles to help you decide what you need for your wedding.

What to Rent

Your venue will ultimately dictate what you need to rent or buy. Does your venue provide linens, dinnerware, chairs, and tables? What about decorations? All these things add up quickly, so as a rule of thumb, we suggest utilizing rental companies for items you don’t want to use again. If you do choose to buy decor, candle holders, chargers, and signage have a plan for it when your big day is over.

What to Buy

When it comes to determining if something is worth buying for your wedding, consider its future use. Most couples buy items that can be used again, perhaps for a special occasion or as decor in their future home. Others feel like buying items that may make their ceremony or reception more unique.

When planning your barn wedding, remember that some items serve as the perfect memento to keep for years to come, while others only serve you that day.
