Couples are increasingly opting to get married in a barn rather than a church because of the increasing popularity of country weddings.  When it comes to finding a unique, rustic, vintage wedding ceremony concept, a barn wedding would be the quick answer.  

Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime occasion, and you want everything about it to be perfect. Your heart is set on everything – even on the littlest things. Though, you might be missing something…



Country music is upbeat and filled with love and emotions, which is an excellent fit for barn weddings. In this article, we’ll share some ideas on the best country music for your barn wedding:


At The Reception, When The Couple Is Introduced

Everyone loves a good love story, and this one is particularly sweet.  Unlike Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the ones in Taylor Swift’s “Love Story” end happily ever after. 

It’s the story of two people who fall in love and how the rest of their lives will be defined by their love for each other. This is the perfect song for the couple as they walk down the aisle, hand in hand.


For The First Dance

Weddings themselves are memorable, but your first dance should be exceptional. If you’re having a western-themed wedding, this amazing rendition of “The Way You Look Tonight” by George Jones is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

Take a moment to have a good look at yourselves on the night of your wedding – especially how bright your smiles are. Make it a foundation and carry it onward in your lasting relationship.
