With a bit of imagination and an ounce of creativity, a bale of two can really add some zest to you party. Weddings are expensive, so if ever there’s a way to save a few buck, hey, it’s worth giving it a shot, we think.
Hay bales have a lovely rustic charm about them which makes it ideal for a farm or country style wedding, yet they’re also fun and quirky – just perfect for a picnic or carnival themed celebration. In fact, when guests see hay bales they’ll immediately know that “fun” is most definitely on the agenda for the day.
That said, let’s look at some ideas for turning a good ol’ hay bale into an elegant feature:
If you’re planning an outdoor ceremony, arrange hay bales along the side of the aisle to serve as guest seating.
Stack hay bales as high as the ceiling as a room divider – especially perfect if you’re getting married in a barn an need to cordon off the kitchen or unsightly farmyard implements.
Turn it into a focus wall by prodding long-stem roses or gerberas into the side of the hay bales or pin your seating plan to a bale using long pieces of wire.
Also consider using a stack of hay bales as the backdrop for your farm style photo booth.
Stack three hay bales – one in front and two at the back – to be used as little couches.
Use hay bales as mini coffee tables in your chill/cocktail area.
Build a little stage out of hay bales by simply placing a sheet of wood on top the bales.
For the cocktail party, use hay bales in carnival themed games such as target shooting or water balloon throwing.
Stack hay bales in piles of varying heights for the musicians to sit on.
Arrange a Trash the Dress photo shoot for a day or two after the wedding, and dive and frolic around in a pile of hay with your new hubby
