Backyard Wedding Ideas & Inspiration

Backyard Wedding Ideas

When you hear 'backyard wedding' is your first thought something from Father of The Bride? Besides this fun wedding with an epic backyard wedding...there's a good reason why backyard weddings are gaining popularity again. As more and more events are reduced in size and confusion over how big weddings can be, more couples are choosing to get married at home in their backyard. Sometimes (not all the time) a wedding at home is just easier!

Backyard Wedding Tips & Advice

Whether you've dreamt of your wedding day on your family's property or you're looking to have a smaller, more intimate occasion, a backyard wedding can be the perfect choice for you. You'll love today's post with all sorts of ideas, inspirations and, of course, advice for wedding at home in your backyard.

For more on mini wedding celebrations, don't miss our post on small and micro wedding ideas and advice.

Before we get to the inspiration, I wanted to give you a few tips for having a backyard wedding at home. Because, at first it can seem all so easy and then can spin out of control very fast and to-do's piles up and all of a sudden your super simple backyard wedding at home, just got way more complicated than you bargained for!

Tip #1 - Plan

Plan and then plan again. And when you're done planning, plan some more. Getting married at home is all about the planning. Plan how it all all going to work, from start to finish, beginning to end. Plan everything out. 

Tip #2 - Get Help

Hire some help. If you can at all find room in the budget, hire a wedding planning. You're really going to want someone who is there to help, but not a friend or family member. They will walk you through everything and take care of all those little "details" about getting married at home they you'd never know about. 

Tip #3 - Simple Is Best

Keep it simple. One of the reasons to get married at home, besides the lack of ability and confusion over large gatherings these days, is to keep things simple. So, don't forget to do that! It can be really easy to start adding in all the things, but just always remember that simple is best when getting married at home in your backyard. 

Tip #4 - Think Logistics

Think through the logistics. Your house and your backyard are most likely not get up for larger groups and the type of logistics that you'll need to have a wedding at home. Really think through all the logistical questions, like where will guests park, where will they use the bathroom (do we have enough toilet paper!), do we have lights for when the sun goes down, how about speakers for the music, what happens if it gets too load and the neighbors complain - think through as many logistics as you can for your backyard wedding at home.
