Are you considering a wedding on a farm? Want it to be enchanting? Unique? Memorable? Welcome to the Great Group Activities hub just for you if you’re interested in holding your marriage ceremony on a farm, as well as information on other creative wedding celebrations.

Country weddings, including weddings on actual working farms, have grown very popular, yet each one is charmingly unique and memorable.

My own wedding was held in an historic rural-town Victorian-turned-quilt museum, and I’ve been researching and interviewing the topic of weddings on farms and in country settings for almost a decade as an author of The New Agritourism: Hosting Community & Tourists on Your Farm and magazine feature writer.

I’ve been involved with weddings on lavender farms, on flower farms, in small rural herb gardens, on large sprawling country estates and even cattle ranches. With two professional event planners in my family and an extraordinary wedding cake baker, we’ve seen a lot and have a lot of information to share. Plus, the other Great Groups authors have much to share with you as well.
