Presently, a large number of couples are finalizing to select a relative's or their own backyard as the venue for their wedding and reception. This results in a less expensive and an informal event. If the climate is nice and you have a well-manicured and large backyard, this is a proper setting for the ceremony.

 Backyard Wedding Decoration Ideas

  • Collect some net lights and miniature Christmas lights. Hang these over bushes, shrubbery, and trees. As the evening approaches, light up these
  • Approach some local social clubs and borrow some long tables and chairs
  • Cover white plastic over these tables
  • Use long strips of streamers to adorn the tables. The colors of the tables should match with the wedding colors
  • Place huge potted ferns on the cake table as well as the couple's table
  • Arrange a portable tent pavilion to prevent the rays of the Sun from reaching the cake. Around the top edges of this tent, hang icicle lights
  • Keep bouquets of silk flowers on the tables in a manner that they match the wedding colors
  • On the ground at the back of the bride and the groom's table, roll white plastic on the ground. Now, the bride will be able to sit down without being bothered of the wedding dress being dragged on the ground
