A rustic hay bale sofa for relaxed wedding seating


hay bale sofa wedding seating

Yesterday I spent the day in a barn on a farm for a upcoming photoshoot I’ll be featuring on the blog – if you follow me on Twitter you might have seen the picture I shared.  This afternoon I’ll be posting some of my behind-the-scenes snaps to show you what we got up to, but my day on the farm inspired this morning’s choice of wedding inspiration.

Hay bale (or straw bale) seating is already quite popular with rustic/festival/farm weddings – it is an easy and cheap way to create seating for your guests and there are so many fun way you can decorate them to make them look nicer and more comfy to sit on.  But why not go one step further and create a hay bale sofa for your guests!  By simply arranging the hay bales in a certain way you can make it appear sofa-shaped, then all it needs is some fabric and cushions to complete the look.

There’s lots more hay bale seating inspiration on this blog post which I did a while ago, and it features another hay bale sofa covered with quilts and blankets.  Don’t forget to check back this afternoon if you’d like to see some of what we got up to yesterday!
