8 Backyard Wedding Ideas that Will Cast a Spell on your Guests

Don’t discard the backyard wedding idea just yet. There are some wonderful things you can do to make your wedding look dreamy. Sometimes it’s about going back to your childhood home that has a massive backyard or your hometown that gives you this luxury. There is a lot of nostalgia attached to the place where you grew up. And even if you are getting married in your existing home, getting married in your own backyard has a lot of sentimental value. In this article, we are throwing some amazing ideas that will make anyone want a wedding like yours.

1. Entry

An entry is the first look of your wedding and it bloody well be impressive! Whether it’s a driveway or a walkway when the guests arrive for your wedding they have to be awestruck by the enchanting entry. Light up the path with fairy lights, use colourful flowers or hang perfectly white flowy drapes. Experiment with different combinations. 

2. Have A Stage

The garden area can be a bit mushy. Combat that by building a small stage where you can hold the ceremony and later it can also be used as a dance floor. It will help you achieve some firm ground for comfortable movement.

3. Pool

Revamp your pool. Lay wooden slats to have a walkover. Or just dot it with floral decorations all across. Or simply have multiple lights floating over. Flowers and light afloat in a serene pool, there is something mesmerizing about it.

4. Tent

If you want to have a luxurious grand look to your wedding then cover your backyard with a tent. Have expensive chandeliers at the centre. Or you can have various light or floral hangings.  A tent looks majestic and impressive.

5. Photo booth

Bicycles, carts, vans, golf cars, scooters etc. Have any, but have a stationary vehicle for a photo booth. Make it elegant, chic, cute, or colourful and funky. Have handmade props laid out. You and your guests will be spending some time here and are the most fun element so get creative and make it interesting.

6. Seating

A wedding does not always have to be a formal affair. You can make it colourful and vibrant. It’s a different level of creativity. And since it’s your own background you can have a sitting arrangement that’s friendly comfortable and totally relaxed. Throw some vibrant rugs for everyone can sit on the ground or upscale your patio pieces with colourful fabrics. Think of a different seating option. Don’t go with the regular.

7. Use the Biggest Tree

The biggest tree in your backyard can become the centrepiece of your decorations.

Cover it with light. Hang lanterns, colourful drapes, even birdcages with floral pieces in them. 

8. Fireplace

If you are having a winter wedding how lovely would it be for all your guests to gather around a fireplace? Have a small makeshift fireplace or fire pit where you can toast your fingers warm and make casual talk with your loved ones. Who says you can’t have a memorable wedding in your own backyard. We are sure by now you are already thinking out the details.

Time to make your backyard look like it’s straight out of Pinterest!
