Kansas is known for Bluegrass music, the Great Plains and The Wizard of Oz. But you might want to add barn wedding venues in Kansas to the list because the Sunflower State is full of gorgeous options—whether you want a modern barn with a white canvas to dress up how you wish or a space brimming with true rustic glory in the countryside.

Many of the barn wedding venues are concentrated within driving distance from the state's bigger cities like Kansas City, Wichita and Topeka, so it's a matter of deciding what's more convenient for traveling guests. Also, consider what season you want to get married in; fall and spring are the most popular since summer can be too hot (although keep in mind that tornado season runs May through June). And don't forget to arm yourself with a booking checklist and a list of questions before you start the hunt to find your dream barn venue. But we're pretty sure you'll love these below.
