There’s something so charming about a backyard wedding. Maybe it’s the DIY touches or the personal details, but whatever the reason, these types of weddings always seem to exude a certain amount of warmth and charm. If you’re considering a backyard wedding, here are a few things to keep in mind to ensure your day is as perfect as possible.

One of the best things about a backyard wedding is that you can make it your own. Personalise your space with photos of you and your partner, special mementoes, and DIY touches. This is your day, so make sure it reflects your unique style as a couple.

Another great thing about backyard weddings is that they can be very intimate. If you’re looking to have a smaller, more intimate wedding, a backyard wedding is the perfect option. 

In part two of this article, let's explore some things you need to ensure your backyard wedding happens smoothly. Here's what you need to know:

What to Prepare for a Backyard Wedding

Planning a backyard wedding? Here's what you need to know!

When it comes to weddings, there are all sorts of different venues that you can choose from. But if you're planning a backyard wedding, there are a few essentials you cannot skip out on. 


When it comes to wedding decorations, there are many things to consider. Everything needs to be carefully planned out, from the overall theme to the specific details. But one of the most important things to think about is the location of your wedding.

Decorations are even more important if you're having a backyard wedding. Not only do they need to be beautiful, but they also need to be functional. After all, you're working with limited space.

Delicious Food and Great Drinks!

No matter your budget, you should make sure to have a variety of food options available for your guests. This means having both savoury and sweet options and vegetarian and meat-based dishes.

Of course, your guests will need something to wash down all that food, so don't forget to have a variety of drinks available. Be sure to have both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options and water and other beverages.

Set up a self-serve buffet for your guests to make things a little easier. This way, they can help themselves to whatever they want, and you don't have to worry about serving everyone individually.

A Dancefloor

A backyard wedding is perfect for celebrating your special day with close family and friends. But what’s a backyard wedding without a dancefloor?

A dancefloor is a perfect way to get your guests up and moving, and it’s a great way to add some extra fun to your wedding reception. Plus, it’s a great way to get some great photos!

The Bottom Line

Planning a backyard wedding can be a lot of work, but it's also a lot of fun. With some planning, you can throw a beautiful and memorable wedding that your guests will love. Just make sure you consider all the things on this list, and you'll be well on your way to success!
