How To Plan A Casual Farm Wedding (PHOTOS)

It's the perfect time of year to plan a daytime wedding at a local barn or farm. The weather in most parts of the country is warming up, flowers are starting to bloom, green is returning to the ground...and while you might not associate the word "farm" with the word "chic," we've got ideas that will make you want to say "yee-haw!" right along-side your fancy toasts.

We're thinking casual and classy...but still loaded with detailed, personal touches. Forget the barbecue grill, checkered tablecloths and paper plates; think wildflowers in collected glass bottles, local fruit or produce as part of your centerpieces, personal picnics so your guests can cozy up at the end of the night and a local, in-season dinner menu. Check out the slideshow to see some of our favorite ways to take your farm wedding up a notch!
