Backyard Weddings are going to be the newest up and coming trend for the rest of 2020 and even going into 2021 - and that is NOT a bad thing! We have perfected the backyard wedding and are excited to be able to let our creativity flow and make these weddings as special and unique as possible! There are some things you need to know when planning a backyard wedding, in’s and out’s, pros and cons - hey, that’s what we’re here for!
Let me give you some reasons why a backyard wedding is one of the best things to do in this current predicament:
#1. Save money on a venue cost - because of this, you have more room in your budget for other things such as the rentals, caterer, and fun things like a photographer and videographer!
#2. Freedom with dates and rules - there will be no discussion on when the venue is available to have your wedding or curfew, you make the rules!
#3. Let your creativity run wild - you want a white horse to walk you down the aisle, let’s do it!
#4. Allows you to work with any vendors - food trucks and bar trucks are super fun and easy!
#5. Now that CDC guidelines are lifting - this is the perfect way to marry the person you love, with ALL of the people you love with little to no restrictions and less worry!
Don't get us wrong... House weddings can be a lot of hard work, but it will be worth it in the end - these are super fun, cost-friendly, smart for the times and your wedding will for sure be unique! Keep scrolling...
Now onto the trickiest parts of backyard wedding planning and why a wedding planner is no longer a luxury, but a necessity!
#1. Everything from the tent to the juice you mix your drinks with has to be rented and brought in - that in itself is a task!
#2. It’s your backyard or your family's backyard which makes you feel like you need to be the host, but that’s why you have a planner to make sure that you don’t lift a finger and that everyone is able to enjoy the day and not worry about stocking the bathroom with more toilet paper.
#3. Sometimes it rains and your plan changes - we will always have a rain plan to make sure nothing will ruin your wedding, especially a little mother nature!
#4. Backyard weddings can be a logistical nightmare, starting from the flow of the event to the small details like having enough electricity, bathrooms, rentals and people to make it all come together.
#5. As always, transportation is always a tricky thing, but at a house wedding you need to figure out the parking arrangements, load-in times and where the rentals can be dropped off / picked up etc. These aspects are much easier with the help of a pro!
Don’t let any of this scare you away though - with the right help and trustworthy vendors, your wedding will be completely out of this world! We have nearly 10 years of experience with backyard weddings and one of those amazing weddings being the ‘Kyle’ in Kyle Michelle Weddings.
Okay, now that I'm all excited and have the backyard wedding jitters - let's do this!
