I assured her that when done properly a backyard wedding is intimate, friendly and can be just as romantic and elegant as the most elaborate affair. I reminded her that you can turn a backyard wedding into a grand event providing a lifetime of memories by following a few simple tips.
Number of Guests and any Size Limitations
You may dream of a beautiful and romantic garden wedding or ceremony under the willow tree or by the pond in the backyard: and this maybe the perfect setting for pictures and a lovely choice for your ceremony. However, it is important to consider size limitations when planning the event. A yard may seem large to you, but once you figure in chairs, guests, decorations, you may have little room to maneuver. Pre-planning before you make your guest list can avoid stress and hassles later on…but then again that is why you hire a wedding planner.
Consider the Weather
Mother Nature is unpredictable, so weather consideration is a common mistake when planning a backyard wedding. You must have a feasible backup plan in place should it happen to rain on your big day. Tents can be a precautionary yet ideal way to have a ceremony in a beautiful outdoor setting without the worry of what the elements might do.
Even though a backyard wedding can be relaxed and casual, a good way to add elegance and a sense of uniformity is to bring in rented equipment. Though you might wasn’t to assemble a hodge-podge mixture of chairs and benches for your guests, consider how it might look. A classic and matching selection of chairs and tables will give your wedding the look and feel it deserves.
Food and Drinks
If you are looking at ways to make your backyard wedding more cost effective, you may choose to have family and friends help handle the food for the reception as well. Catering can be expensive and premade food from the grocery store is never as good as homemade prepared by those you know and love.
Backyard weddings are a life saver and ideal option for those who want a small intimate wedding that will save them money. If you are working with a small budget, it is still possible to have the wonderful wedding of your dreams. These simple tips can help you make the best of a backyard location on your special day.
