Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

A barn is a magical place for a wedding.

Steeped in history and evoking the simplicity of a place that time has forgotten, the classic barn has been a subject irresistible to artists, poets, and city folk alike for its stoic visage and endearing presence.

Inherent in the choice to have a barn wedding offers a great idea of flexibility and ample room for imagination. Your ceremony and reception can use the barn as a backdrop for a lovely day in the fresh country air. It can serve as the perfect canvas for an indoor reception, dappled by twinkling lights hung from the rafters and the glow of candles from tables full of loved ones. A barn works equally well as a backup for inclement weather or as the centerpiece of a wedding’s design.

In Barn Weddings, Maggie Lord offers ideas and advice on how to create a barn wedding, including information on different styles and décor as well as tips from the pros for making the day a special one to remember. Part indoor, part outdoor, but all beauty, history and romance, barn weddings are as practical as they are ripe with opportunity for charm and creativit

Barns can be a beautiful backdrop to a wedding. The author is the founder of a blog about rustic and country weddings. And based on this book, she knows her stuff. The book is filled with gorgeous photography and tons of practical advice. The photographs show weddings from simple country to classy elegance. And the advice is practical and often green. Any bride anticipating her upcoming wedding should check out this book for ideas about her wedding and reception. I've been married for seventeen years and I still really enjoyed this book. The photography is amazing and a lot of the ideas could also work for a family reunion or outdoor party.

I received this book free of charge from Gibbs Smith in exchange for my honest review.

What comes to mind when you hear barn wedding? Cows, dirt, paper plates and hay. If you answered yes to anyone of those choices, you need to read this book. The author shows how to have a eco-friendly, classy, and budget friendly wedding using a barn to make a beautiful backdrop. The pictures are beautiful and after you see them a barn wedding just may be on the top of your list. The use of house hold items, such as Ball brand canning jars as lights and vases is both classy and casual. I especially love the fiesta barn wedding. Done two ways, the author showcases a traditional colorful Mexican style barn wedding and a more muted white wedding with Spanish flare. I feel this book should be seen by all future brides and would even recommend this book to people that enjoy wedding photography. A great engagement gift!!

While a wedding in a barn may bring to mind images of a no frills, budget ceremony and reception this book will change your mind. Barn weddings are no longer for folks who actually live on farms, yuppies are paying big bucks to have that rustic feel for their weddings.

The ideas presented in this book can be DIY if you are so inclined but many just have that rustic look while toting a rather hefty price tag. The simplicity shown is not really that easy to achieve in real life without a team of people making it happen - think Martha Stewart doing a barn wedding.

The book is beautifully photographed and many, many ideas are presented which should leave any reader with a list of things they may want to incorporate in their own ceremony and reception.

If you are looking for the country feel of a barn wedding without any actual contact with animals or farm life then this the book for you.
