Tips For Planning A Backyard Wedding
Just because you aren’t having a wedding at venue it doesn’t mean planning will be easier. Putting together a backyard wedding means you have to probably DIY things and use rentals because backyards aren’t exactly ready for wedding celebrations all the time. Here’s a few tips when planning a backyard wedding:
Consider an Airbnb or VRBO
If you don’t have a nice yard to have your wedding at, renting a private home may be the best way to go. Some homes have large acreage for your wedding making it easier to have a ceremony and reception.
Consider how many guests you’ll be having. A few questions to ask yourself will be:
- Is there enough parking for your guests?
- What about restrooms?
- Talk to your neighbors about possible noise
Always have a plan in case the weather doesn’t want to cooperate. Having a party tent or some type of shelter is always a good idea for an outdoor wedding with guests.
