What’s not to love about a backyard wedding? They’re intimate, convenient, and—perhaps best of all—often a budget-friendly (if not free) venue. But before you write off a backyard garden wedding as an overly casual affair that welcomes a rustic vibe only, know that there are endless backyard wedding ideas to transform it into anything you want it to be. After all, there is no place like home.
While we all hope for sunny weather it’s not always the case. Make sure you have a rain plan first, before you have your sunshine plan. This will help you mentally prepare for any disappointing weather on the day of the celebration, but it will also help you critically think through what to do if it rains and how you will keep your guests comfortable, safe, and dry. For many outdoor at-home weddings, this means having a marquee area preplanned just in case. The right marquee and the lighting can also create its own atmophere and blend in with the backyard wedding theme
