Whether you’re looking for a wedding venue with rustic charm or something secluded yet romantic, barn locations are a great choice for your special day. Many also offer all-inclusive packages and wedding coordinators to help plan nearly every detail. Here are a few of our favorite barn wedding venues in Delaware that you must see.
As its name suggests, The Farmhouse has long served as a home for farm grounds until the 1960s before it develops into “Murray Manor.” The Farmhouse has been passed through four generations of the Murray family and now serves as a site for special events and weddings. Located between Wilmington and Newark, it’s isolated from the city for an intimate ceremony with friends and family. You can choose from various wedding packages, including catering upgrades, photo booths, an open bar, and more. The Farmhouse has also won awards for “Couple’s Choice” from Wedding Wire and The Knot’s “Best of Weddings” in 2019.
The Covered Bridge Inn
Originally constructed in the 1830s, The Covered Bridge Inn sits on the southeastern coast of Delaware. With its scenic landscape and extensive history, you’ll say your “I do’s” against a beautiful backdrop of pastures, ponds, and its barn. After its recent restoration, the grounds now include a farmhouse salon, fireplaces, ceremony space, and a wedding barn with 4,000 square feet. You’re even free to book the venue for the entire weekend for your rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception. The inn also now offers event coordination to help you enjoy a stress-free day for your wedding.
Thousand Acre Farm
With its convenient location and waterfront views of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal, Thousand Acre Farm has recently introduced its new ‘Cider Barn’. The barn can accommodate up to 45 people indoors, but you can also use their sweeping lawns for a larger outdoor ceremony. Thousand Acre Farm also allows couples to customize their wedding day, such as various vendors and wedding coordinators who will be on-site to help with anything you need. Its panoramic views also make for a beautiful sunset on your special day.
Our Simply Perfect Day
Located in Magnolia, Delaware, on the grounds of the historic Delaware Mansion, Our Simply Perfect Day can hold up to 150 wedding guests in indoor and outdoor venues. Their barn is full of twinkling lights to create a romantic oasis for your wedding day and wooden beams for a rustic charm.
