Backyard Wedding Receptions
“Home” has a special significance; therefore, many couples choose to marry in their backyard. Backyard wedding receptions can be personalized, a special ceremony that saves you some money. These weddings tend to be a more casual affair, although they can have any desired theme. A wedding in the garden offers for the event a touch of lightness. Here are some tips and tricks for perfect backyard wedding receptions.
Consider a themed wedding. You can have the theme of a tea party, barbecue or summer garden. Make it as simple or complex as you want. For example, couples who opt for “tea party” can give tea cups as souvenirs. A simple theme can incorporate the favorite color or flower of the bride or groom.
If your wedding will be in nature, choose an appropriate setting. Mother Nature has already provided a beautiful background for outdoor wedding, but you can add other things. Consider adorning trees with lights, lanterns hanging around the yard and placing a kiosk or springs to define the backyard wedding receptions. Benefit from the already planted flowers and accentuates the rest of the area with other plants. Choose white chairs for guests, the contrast with green grass forms a beautiful decor.
To keep casual feeling, couples should be simple. The bride could wear a short dress. Such a simple style wedding suits with feminine details such as flowers or lace. For the groom, long pants and a short-sleeved shirt or a suit of linen or cotton are recommended. Do not forget the shoes. The bride will probably have to walk through the grass all day, so heels are not a good idea. Try some flats or sandals because after all, you are home.
Backyard wedding receptions are at the weather’s will. However, with a backup plan, the bride and groom can have their dream wedding. Consider renting a tent to provide shelter in case of rain or too much sun. Cover the table, if possible, to keep away from sun, insects and rain. Put in place a plan for housing guests in case of bad weather. Clean your garage or barn for use as a shelter in case of bad weather.11
