Backyard Wedding Ideas to Take Your Wedding To the Next Level
Start With a Wedding Tent
Put the Wedding Cake Table under the Protection of the Tent on a Sturdy Table
Backyard wedding idea number two is to simply protect your investment in the masterpiece you commissioned that is your wedding cake by putting it inside the tent. Leave a side wall open, if you like so that your cake cutting pictures will have the beauty of the wedding garden in the background, but protect your wedding cake from birds flying overhead and the intensity of the sun.
Likewise, use the folding table for something else. A wedding cake needs a sturdy table that won't wobble when a guest bumps into it.
Put the Pets Away
For so many reasons, but primarily because of the inherent unpredictability of animals your next backyard wedding idea is to control the movements of your pets. Perhaps this means putting them in a kennel for your wedding day. Maybe it simply means having them on a leash. It's better than having Fido lovingly push grandma into the middle of the spread your caterers put out for your reception.
Build a Gazebo or a Wedding Arch
This backyard wedding idea will add beauty to your wedding ceremony. A bride and groom framed with their pastor, rabbi, or priest by a tastefully decorated gazebo or wedding arch with manicured foliage in the background is a picture perfect setting.
Accent with Lights
Remember, backyard wedding ideas don't lock you into a floral themed (or cactus themed) wedding. I heard recently of a couple who found an outdoor location to create a Lord of the Rings themed wedding. That might be a bit much for most of us, but it proves that your options are limited only to your imagination, budget, and nerve. Dream. You're backyard wedding ideas might create something people will talk about for years.
