Small Town Prices - Big City Experience

Your wedding shouldn't break the bank and at the Barn III we strive to make your planning experience as easy as possible!  When you book with us, you get the Barn and the Bling too! The Barn III's rental cost includes ALL the linens, napkins, overlays, table runners, chargers, & several other perks that would cost you extra anywhere else (photo booth, ceiling drape, wood slabs, signage, round bales, day of assistant and more). With all of the bling included, we are one of the most affordable venues in Central Illinois! Let us do the heavy lifting, you do the kissing!

"We've always been different...why change now?"

The Barn III is NOT your typical venue.  Likewise, we are not your typical barn.  A florist who recently did a wedding at the new barn described us as "The Ritz Carlton of Barns". We are different...but not just because we are new. The truth is we have more longevity and experience in the hospitality industry than the many trendy venues who've popped up in the last 10 years. We have been hosting and entertaining 200+ guests per night every weekend for over 45 years. It started with dinner theatre in 1979 in an old angus cattle barn and in 2019 we expanded our culture of hospitality and customer service to weddings and special events...the barn changed a bit, but the culture remains...NOW in a brand spanking new barn.  The barn LOVES taking care of people, anyway we can, to help you enjoy your day!

And when you book your wedding at the barn, you'll experience the difference from the ease of scheduling a tour to the details of the big day. And, by the end of the night, when you're super exhausted and our staff loads your gifts and your carefully wrapped cake top into your car for safe travel, you'll be so glad you tried something different.

*If you are having your ceremony with us, you automatically book the evening before your big day for your rehearsal. We highly recommend you allow us to cater your rehearsal dinner on site. Instead of having your party drive to multiple locations and worry about meeting your reservation time (you never know how long the actual ceremony rehearsal might last depending on your details!), you can sit back and relax once you’ve rehearsed and enjoy a drink from the bar and some delicious Barn III cuisine! Please note: if you do choose to have us cater your rehearsal dinner, you will pick from our food/booze packet and that will be added to your final invoice.

*We only run dinner theatre during the first couple weeks of August. If you have a question about our schedule, please review our calendar.

**If you are looking to book during dinner theatre months, we are unable to provide a two-day rental. If you are having your ceremony with us, you will rehearse the same day, on-site. We will only take one show offline per run (typically every 6 months) so booking during dinner theatre is first-come first-serve! Booking is contingent on how many seats have already been sold for the show. We will not cancel a performance that is already selling for a wedding. The increased price reflects the additional hours and labor required to flip the venue from dinner theatre, to wedding seating and then back to dinner theatre.

Hassle and stress have a cost - you have to decide how much it's worth.

We don't charge for hassle and stress at the barn, it's not part of our package. (Drop the mic.)

With other venues, you might experience minimum requirements, additional charges for set-up, tear-down, tent rental, chair rental, table rental, etc. Almost all of these items are included when you choose us!
