A friend's daughter is getting married (and having the reception) in a barn in December. Her colors are linen, pomegranate, and turquoise.
Can anyone suggest patterned papers that might work in an informal album I'll make for her? She won't put her formal photos into it; I'll take informal shots and add them later.

I can't suggest specific brands/names, but I'd definitely go for a lot of white/off white woodgrain paper! Or white peeled paint paper. And then accent with some gingham and maybe damask papers in the other colours.
There are lots of great woodgrain/peeled paint papers to choose from, pretty much every company makes one now.
Sounds like a very pretty wedding!

I was going to suggest the same - woodgrain would be awesome.
Studio Calico has woodgrain textured card stock.
And for pattern paper, here's what I've found on 2Peas.
For more of the whitewashed look, these papers look nice:
This one just screams barn to me (sold out now, but...):
This might tie into the turquoise color nicely:
This is washi, but I think it will pick up the pomegranate color since the darker part of the grain looks to be more wine colored than brown:
Also, you could tie in burlap embellies. Someone has a bunch from LYB for sale in the "For Sale or Trade" forum.
JESUS paid it all.

Thank you both! I like those papers/tape you linked, PaperAddictC. And the colors you recommended, biochempea, will work, too. The bride is elegant - her dress is stunning champagne lace. And she wants to maintain that elegance even in the barn setting. I want her album to be elegantly rustic and not American Pickers barn-like hahaha!

MME also has a line called Miss Caroline. I also got a pad of paper at Ms by Recollections that is almost this exact same line.

There may be a few pieces of paper in the Fancy Pants 'County Boutique' line that are useful. I think there are some designs left here and you may find others with our friend Google. You would have to add the color with your embellishments but it might be a good foundation.
