The Pros Of A Backyard Wedding

A Special Location

The location will be somewhere super important and special to you and your partner! You will always remember your backyard being the location of your day and you can easily reminisce on those moments over and over again. It truly is amazing being able to relive your wedding day by just taking a couple steps into your backyard! Or you could even do what this couple did and use an AirBnB to host your intimate wedding! It can be cute, cozy and a fun alternative if you do not have a big enough home to host your wedding at. Doesn’t all of this sound nice? Sounds like heaven to me!

More Time With Loved Ones

Having a small intimate backyard wedding means more time with your close friends and family! And you can actually speak with all of your guests!! You don’t have to be overwhelmed worrying about talking to every single one of your 100+ wedding guests. It’s time to focus on the people who are most important to you and your partner. Plus, you get to truly celebrate with people who mean the absolute world to you! Honestly, I wouldn’t want it to be any other way!

No Crazy Timeline

Instead of being consumed by a specific timeline and keeping track of all the vendors, you can really focus on what matters most! For instance, having the photographer there to capture the most important moments of your wedding day or not doing a bouquet toss because you just don’t want to! When you figure out exactly what you want on your wedding day you don’t have to worry about doing everything. Then you get to have more special moments for you, your partner, and your loved ones! There is something truly amazing about not having to worry about the fluff and extras.

Save Money

You can save on the things that don’t matter as much to you and splurge on the items that mean a lot to you! Instead of spending tons of money on a venue or something that doesn’t really matter much to you splurge on the details, photographer, food, etc! You can have so much more fun focusing on going big on the stuff that is important to you! When figuring this out really think about what you don’t actually care about having on your wedding day. It will make the crossing off the list process much easier, trust me! On top of that, now you can put all the money you saved towards your honeymoon! That’s definitely a win in my book!
