WEDDING & EVENT BARN KITS
Traditional ceremony settings like churches and hotel ballrooms are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Instead, millions of American couples are opting for a non-traditional, natural setting for their big day that captures the romance and authenticity of their union. One of the catalysts driving this movement is the steady rise of wedding barns, or barn-style structures designed specifically for special occasions. At DC Structures, our talented designers have created a line of wedding barn kits that blend rustic design elements with modern amenities to make the perfect venue for those eager to tie the knot. Built in the reliable method of post and beam construction, our wedding barns feature vaulted ceilings with exposed heavy timbers that create dramatic main halls and reception areas. No matter your vision, we’ll help you design a wedding barn that’s perfect for your business plan.
What is a Wedding Barn Kit?
A wedding barn kit from DC Structures is a pre-engineered design and materials package with a customizable layout that can be modified to meet your individual needs. All of our building packages include site-specific structurally engineered blueprints, framing materials, connection hardware, window and door packages, and builder support, making it easy for your contractor to assemble your frame after it’s shipped to your site. Our line of wedding barn kits feature premium quality Douglas fir posts and appearance-grade glulam beams sourced from the Pacific Northwest. These heavy timbers don’t just look beautiful, they create a sturdy frame that will stand strong for generations.

Tennessee Wedding Barn Project
Located on a historic 132-acre farm in Greenville, Tennessee, this all-inclusive wedding venue features everything our client could want and more for their event business, including a bride’s suite, a groom’s suite, a full kitchen, an office, and ADA restrooms. Modified from our Sunnyside wedding and event barn kit, the main hall features a wraparound loft that was created by raising the sidewall height, changing the roof pitch, and adding large shed dormers to both sides of the structure. A 6’ by 6’ cupola with windows fills the main hall with natural light, while all-wood interiors add rustic charm to the intimate ceremony and reception area. Upstairs, an arched doorway leads out to a small deck where guests can wave the bride and groom goodbye as they head off on their honeymoon.

WHY YOU SHOULD AVOID RENOVATING A HISTORIC BARN
Restoring a historical barn sounds like a dream come true for many architecture buffs, but the reality is that these renovations can end up costing you a fortune. Angie’s List estimates that on average, renovations can cost up to $500 per square foot. Unexpected costs include the replacement of rotten materials, fumigation to kill wood-boring insects, and pricey structural upgrades. With our event barn kits, you can rest easy knowing that you’ll be getting the best structure for your buck.
ESSENTIAL AMENITIES TO ADD TO YOUR EVENT BARN KIT
Because every bride and groom are different, it’s smart to invest in a wedding barn that features all of the amenities they could want and more. For example, our Legacy wedding barn kit comes with bride’s and groom’s quarters, a catering kitchen, and a massive main hall, but many of our clients add accessories like outdoor pavilions to their properties to accommodate couples seeking an outdoor ceremony. No matter your vision, we can help you customize your structure to better suit your needs and those of your clientele.
Wedding Barns – A Potentially Lucrative Venture
As barn weddings continue to grow in popularity, so does the value in owning a rustic structure designed for hosting special events. With more and more millennial couples shunning churches and hotel ballrooms in search of less formal venues, barns present a lucrative opportunity for business owners looking to capitalize on the trend. To put it into perspective, the average wedding now costs $33,931, with a significant portion allotted for venue rental fees. If you’re planning to launch your event business, look no further than a wedding barn kit from DC Structures.
