A do it yourself wedding is easy to throw in a beautiful backyard. The hassle of booking a wedding venue can drain you of both your time and your money. A DIY wedding held in a backyard is one you can have almost complete control over. The biggest risk you take with this kind of wedding is undesirable weather. A surefire way to make sure this doesn’t ruin your wedding is to rent a party tent under which the ceremony and/or reception can take place. Dressing a party tent up for your wedding is easy and cheap. All you have to do is take sheets, fabrics or curtains and line the tent with them. This will also avoid nosy neighbors being able to see the celebration taking place. Another benefit to doing this is that you cover up the poles holding up the tent.
For an evening reception it is easy to string white lights along the ceiling of the tent. This serves as both light and décor and saves you money. You can even purchase white holiday lights and hang them along the perimeter of the tent. Cable ties can then be used to hold the lights into place.
If you are looking to have a super casual wedding you can even have a barbequed theme wedding. This is great for a daytime wedding or an evening wedding, though for the latter you will want to install garden lights in the backyard. If there is a pool in the backyard you can set up a water – based bar where your guests can enjoy fresh drinks while soaking in the pool.
A backyard wedding makes the process of DIY wedding flowers very easy. A great way to decorate the aisle the bride walks down on the big day is to simply line up potted flowers, which should make the official wedding colors, as should the flower pots. Purchasing new ones may not even be necessary if you are willing to use spray paint on the flower pots you already have.
A wedding cake can be very expensive, but you can get around this expense by providing cupcakes instead. Not only are cupcakes easy to make they are fun to decorate and there are endless possibilities when it comes to creating the perfect ones. You can decorate your wedding cupcakes with foods such as nuts and cherries. You can even use real flowers to decorate your wedding cupcakes. Displaying them is as easy as purchasing a cupcake stand, which you can find at most department stores and kitchenware stores. Having personalized cupcake wrappers made can help you give your wedding a unique touch.
A DIY wedding backyard style can be a fun way to celebrate with friends and family without breaking the bank. It also gives you many options for making your wedding one that will stand out in the minds of your guests. DIY weddings are a fun and easy way to celebrate your happiest day.
