Benefits of a Backyard Wedding

August 16th, 2017 · No Comments

Getting married to the love of your life is an exciting time no matter where the location.   If you and your soon to be spouse are looking for a nice place to become one, consider all of the benefits of a backyard wedding.  Below is a list of the many reasons why sharing your nuptials behind your home or your parents place may be a good idea.   

  1.  The number one reason you might want to consider wedding your soul mate in the backyard  is because you can save a ton of money.  No need to book a church or a venue because you will just need to step outside into whatever type of wedding oasis you choose to create.  You can get as elaborate as you want or keep it scaled down to save even more.  

  2. Choosing the date of your special day can sometimes be an issue if you are looking to book a certain venue.  During the summer months it can sometimes be difficult to find a place in which to wed because others have already booked them in advance.  If you are one that waits until the last minute to get things done, holding your ceremony on the lawn is a perfect answer!  

  3. Decorating your outdoor wedding  will be a snap because you won’t have to abide by anyone’s rules and regulations, only yours and/ or your parents.  Let your creative juices flow as you turn the outdoors into all you have ever dreamed of.  

  4. The reception will be easy to set up with a few tables and chairs. You can have everything catered if you choose or if you would rather keep it simple, the kitchen will be close by so that you can have someone cook and deliver it right to the tables.  Easy enough!

  5. Your friends and family can be super involved in your celebration of marriage if you decide to go this route as well.  Perhaps you have some young kids in the family that would like to be ushers or help to serve the meal after the service. 

  6. Committing your lives to one another is a sacred thing.  Doing so either in your parent’s backyard or your own is a great way to hold those memories very close.
