30 Sweet Ideas For Intimate Backyard Outdoor Weddings

Backyard weddings are getting more and more popular because they are informal, simple,cozy, relaxing, and better yet, won’t require a big budget.  The best part of having backyard wedding is that you can personalize it without any restrictions…cover the trees with lights and garlands or hang your family photos on them, use the existing blooms in the garden to create bouquets and boutonnieres and leave them put for the guests to enjoy rather than spending money for fresh flowers on the tables.  SO, ready to start backyard wedding planning?  Scroll down to see 30 of our favorite backyard wedding ideas.

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.

4. General Merriment

One of the greatest things about a backyard wedding is that there are no rules.  You can set up everything to your hearts content and adding some little surprises tucked into every nook and cranny in the backyard encourages your guests to move around and explore the beautiful space you have provided them to help you celebrate.
