Why choose a backyard wedding

Generally speaking, there are three main reasons to have a backyard wedding.

  • Backyard wedding could be a more realistic solution if some of your family members are in special condition. For example, if their parents can't go for long trip for medical or financial reasons, a backyard wedding will ensure they are able to be a part of the celebrations from beginning to end.

Pickup a proper backyard

It’s not all backyards suitable for a wedding. You must take the following factors in consideration when planning a backyard wedding.

  • Size: The size of yard is depending on your requirement. If you just want to organize the ceremony on your yard and your guest list is not quite long, then a small yard will be fine. However if you plan the whole event including ceremony, reception on the yard, a larger one might be better.
  • Weather: It is the most unpredictable factor. If it always rains at your region, renting a tent, multiple umbrellas might be a good idea.
  • Terrain: Smooth, large yards are ideal for wedding. If the yard is uneven, steeply sloped, or stuffed with obstacles, it might not feel that good.
  • Pets: Not only should the home's pets be well behaved for the wedding, but also a neighborhood pet should be arranged properly. It might be a good idea to send your pet away for that day to ensure guests are not disturbed. Or at least have them on a leash.
  • Neighbors: Get your neighbors permission before planning your backyard wedding. Most neighbors are going to be understanding an at home wedding, however it is still wise to speak to them before making firm plans.
