1. Wedding Reception
Having your wedding reception in the backyard makes for a very intimate affair. You have so much variety when it comes to seating arrangements because odds are good you will have to work around trees or flowerbeds and this only adds to the charm. The key is to work WITH your surroundings and not against them.
2. Wedding Altars
Getting married in a backyard is something so truly special, because you’ll have the option to visit that space over and over again and relive those precious memories. You’ll want to make the altar area a focal point of the event and later this area can be used as a selfie station, so it’s a win-win all around.
3. Dancing Floor Options
After the vows are done in bellies are full, people are going to want to dance. Many rental companies offer outdoor dance floors that can be set and leveled to make for a smooth surface. Even if your crowd isn’t big on dancing, you’ll want to provide this area so when the mood does strike heels are sinking into the ground and your guests can properly get their groove on.
