Here at Gracious Bridal, we can never get enough of sweet treats, so treat your guests to a bag of handmade cookies for a delightful wedding.

A backyard wedding is perfect for couples who would love to keep their wedding a small, private and intimate affair. The backyard where you or your fiance grew up in are full of memories, and what better way to celebrate those precious memories by adding one more to it!
Hosting your wedding in your backyard also means that you get to save money on the location. The best part is the potential for the wedding to be entirely DIY. Backyard weddings send out a very casual and rustic vibe.
- You could personalize the wedding with small details such as hanging pictures or crafts on a clothing line and securing them with clothing pegs.
- Use mismatching chairs and tables to make the whole wedding look more casual. (More about mismatching furniture for weddings in an upcoming post.)
- The trees in the backyard make the perfect backdrop for pictures. They can be decorated with hanging lights or lanterns. You could even install a swing to relive those childhood memories.
- As for food, serve barbecue for dinner, classic backyard style!
Backyard weddings are fun, personal and casual. So take these ideas and turn that backyard into a wedding paradise!
