Whiskey Barrel Wedding

We all know by now what a huge trend "rustic" is in weddings.  And honestly, it doesn't look like it's going anywhere fast!  But what we love about rustic weddings is that it isn't only about burlap and mason jar glasses anymore (although those are still wildly popular!).  This country wedding theme is one that's more flexible that some of the other wedding decor themes (like mad men, art deco, roaring 20's, etc., which are pretty cut and dry).  When planning a rustic wedding, you can go rustic glam, rustic country, rustic lodge and even rustic wine country! 

This is why, at Classical Tents, we just KNEW we had to get some whiskey/wine barrels to add to our inventory.  And boy, are we glad we did!  Once we had our whiskey barrels sourced out (thank you Berkshire Mountain Distillers!), the ideas started rolling.  We could offer whiskey barrel buffets, whiskey barrel bars, whiskey barrel side tables, whiskey barrel cocktail tables, whiskey barrel aisle markers...the possibilities are endless!  And what a hit they've already been...used at some of our fall weddings in the Berkshires, and even at a fun "out in the field" farm dinner hosted by Heirloom Fire!  

Take a look at some of our whiskey barrel images, and let us know what you think!  Do you like this latest trend?  Can you see yourself setting up one of these vignettes at your next event?
