Looking for a intimate setting for your wedding day? A backyard can be the perfect location! It offers a special place for the bride and groom to say “I do” and allows flexibility in an environment you control.
Keep in mind that the amount of people on your guest list will depend on the size of your backyard space as well. You don’t want your guests to feel confined or restricted.
If you have the room, we suggest you rent an elegant tent so that there is somewhere to go if it begins to rain. You don’t want your guests running to your house for shelter!
Long tables work perfectly for a larger guest list and they really bring everyone together for a traditional, “family style” celebration. We also recommend using the outdoors to your advantage. Use the trees to string up bistro lights to set a romantic ambiance for your guests.
Have a swimming pool? Dress it up with floating candles or flower petals.
Since you saved your money by using your backyard as the wedding venue, consider spending on a fantastic live band and delicious catering. A great party should always have excellent music to dance to and food good enough to ask for seconds.

When it comes time to consider where your wedding will take place, remember that a backyard wedding doesn’t always have to be casual or rustic. Depending on the decor, any theme can be pulled off. With the flexibility of a backyard wedding, you don’t have to add too much because nature serves as a beautiful backdrop.
