With summer approaching, it is wedding season, and to save money, you can have a backyard wedding. Despite having a wedding outside, you can still have a day that you will treasure forever. Here are a few things that you can have at your wedding to make it memorable.
Use High-quality Rental Tents
Today, you can rent high-quality rental tents for your backyard wedding. Many of these tents are made to look like additional rooms that are outside a home. The tents have clear plastic windows along with strong roofs to protect everyone from the intense sunlight or a rainstorm. The tents are easy to set up outside, and you can find tents that are in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and colors.
Flowers, Trees and Shrubs
If you want to have beautiful landscaping in a backyard, then a wedding is a great excuse to plant shrubs, trees and flowers. While you can have cut flowers for your wedding bouquets, you can also have live plants that are in flowerpots, or alternatively, you can plant flowers, trees and shrubs directly in the soil. After the wedding is over, you will still have a huge variety of attractive plants to enjoy in a backyard.
Have an Outdoor Kitchen
Rather than having your reception inside, you can have an outdoor kitchen where a talented chef can cook tasty food such as grilled chicken and fresh garden vegetables. Your guests can continue to use the seating areas in the rental tent along with the additional tables and chairs that are near the outdoor kitchen. A backyard wedding is the perfect place to have a fun barbecue dinner after you say your wedding vows.
A Garden Trellis
Imagine standing underneath a pretty garden trellis that has lush green vines or beautiful roses covering it. This is often where the bride and groom will say their vows while the guests watch the wedding ceremony. When the bride and groom stand underneath the garden trellis, the wedding photographer can capture many memorable images that you can place in scrapbooks or have at an online website.
Build a Deck
When you are planning a backyard wedding, make sure to contact professional deck builders to create a customized wooden deck that you can use for your special day. A deck in a backyard is a suitable place for having the wedding ceremony or for having the reception after the wedding ends.
Don’t Wait until the Last Minute
If you want to have a backyard wedding, then don’t wait until the last minute to make your plans. It can take several months to apply for the permits to make the improvements to a backyard along with buying all of the items needed for the wedding and the reception.
