Why you should choose a DIY wedding venue

Why DIY?

How else could you come up with a disco themed wedding in a rustic, rural setting?

I’m being serious. One of the very first weddings that we hosted here at The Barn was just that; a sparkly occasion steeped in velour and platform shoes with disco balls flashing from every surface imaginable. If you don’t believe me, check out the pictures here.

'Disco' wasn’t a theme that could have been pre-ordered or purchased in a package. The only way that something like this could have come to life was through the imaginative minds of two souls looking to tie the knot with flair.

And that’s the beauty of it. When we say DIY, what we’re really saying is that you have the creative control to shape your wedding exactly how you have imagined it. Whether this means rounding up family and friends for an afternoon of styling (of course with the addition of a cheeky champagne or two), or sitting down with a wedding coordinator to help bring your wedding dreams to life, you will have the flexibility to design YOUR dream wedding.

How can we help?

We can assist by recommending the services of some of the best stylists, coordinators, florists, caterers, photographers and videographers in the biz.

You can find a comprehensive list of The Ones We Love here.

These talented creatives range across all budgets and each are flexible in the packages they offer. You are free to use any and all of these suppliers to create a blend of styles and services that reflects your priorities and tastes. Or, you can go out on a limb and hire the musician that you saw play in a bar one time and bring in your favourite cocktail shakers from a local haunt.

Does DIY mean we have to hire everything?

Nope! Not altogether common for a DIY venue, but up here at this Milton Wedding Venue, we offer a wide range of styling props and décor, dried florals, tables and chairs, picnic rugs and cushions, cutlery, crockery, glassware and almost everything else you would need to pull off a beautiful wedding if you really did want to do it all yourself. Check out what's included in our Borrow Barn Catalogue.

Its all about YOU!

When it all comes down to it, this day belongs to you and your very special person. The rest of us are just here to celebrate alongside you. No matter if your vision has always been flower arrangements dangling from the ceiling, maybe no flowers at all, or even a disco themed day, DIY gives YOU the freedom to choose!

By booking with us at The Barn On The Ridge, you will have the flexibility to decide on your priorities and to surround yourself with the talented people who will help you create the day you have always dreamed of.
