It's hard to beat the beauty of Arkansas barn wedding venues. Often sitting on acres and acres of land, surrounded by everything from forests to meadows to short-cut lawns, they're rich in natural beauty. That may be no surprise, considering the state is home to the Ozarks and the Arkansas River.

But not every wedding barn in Arkansas is inspired by the state's countryside charm. There are plenty leaning into contemporary vibes, with white-washed interiors that act as a blank canvas for decorating. You'll want to decide which type best suits your needs. Not all barns are completely indoors; some are open-air or extend into outdoor patios. That means you'll want to consider the season you get married in as well; fall is typically a safe bet for mild weather.

No matter the barn, don't forget to ask the right questions and make sure everything hits your venue checklist. You'll love these options below for your Arkansas wedding.
