Ideas, advice, and how-to for one of the hottest wedding styles

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 American barn has been an irresistible subject for artists, poets, and city folk alike. In Barn Weddings, Maggie Lord offers ideas and advice on how to create a barn wedding, including information on the 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 rife with opportunity for charm and creativity.

Maggie Lord, a self-confessed wedding junkie since the age of thirteen, loves the romance and beauty of weddings. Passionate about rustic style and eager to share her discoveries and ideas while planning her own wedding, she started, which serves as a daily muse for brides, couples and wedding enthusiasts, offering an online venue for idea gathering and inspiration. Lord lives in Connecticut with her husband, Jon, and their young son, Jack


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!!
