Backyard Wedding Ideas
With beautiful weather all year around, Texas backyard weddings continue to grow in popularity. Not only do you get to take advantage of our mild winters and gorgeous spring season, but backyard weddings can be a huge cost savings to any wedding budget.
If you’ve decided on a backyard as your venue, you’ve got the largest decision out of the way, and now it’s time to focus on the little touches you plan on adding to make your wedding unique. Below we’ll dive into the top backyard wedding ideas for your Texas wedding!
Focus on the Sentimental
Whether you’re planning on using the backyard of your childhood home, grandparents house, or the first home you and your fiance purchased together, make sure you’re focusing on the sentimental aspects of the yard. Consider saying your vows under the tree you used to climb, or maybe have a dinner buffet under the patio you used to sit under and read. Focusing on these special places will have an entirely new meaning as you promise forever to your best friend.
Add Plenty of Seating
One thing that backyards don’t typically have is excessive seating for all of the guests you’re going to have. Depending on your wedding theme and aesthetics you may choose to create cozy seating areas, or set up long picnic tables for everyone to sit together. If you plan on having both your ceremony and your reception in the backyard, make sure you’re choosing seating that will work well for both parts of the event; this way you won’t have to waste valuable celebration time reconfiguring the seating arrangements.
Bring an Element of Fun
Backyard weddings are supposed to be charming and fun, so make sure you’ve living up to your guests’ expectations. Whether you bring in a unique party trailer to serve custom cocktails and margaritas, or a food bar to serve your wedding cake, adding these special touches will make your wedding memorable for you and your guests.
If you’re looking for other fun touches, consider adding props throughout your reception for guests to use for photos, or have guests throw glitter and confetti instead of rice. No matter what you choose for your element of fun, everyone is sure to remember your special day for years to come.
Create a Dance floor
A wedding reception isn’t complete without a dance floor big enough for guests of all ages to enjoy! You won’t want dancing all over your lawn, so consider DIYing a dance floor using thin wood MDF boards, or vinyl floor planks that click together. This smooth surface will minimize damage to your landscaping and ensure everyone has room to dance away to their favorite songs.
