No matter how long the invite list is, bringing together a backyard wedding with comfort in mind is possible. Here are a few tips to help you pull it off.
Brides everywhere are looking for ways to save a few dollars, even if it means using a venue space they already know and love. Backyard weddings are increasing in popularity and are comfortable when done right. Before sending out the invites, you should consider a few of these suggestions to pull off the event seamlessly.
Scatter Baskets of Blankets
It can be hard to please everyone at outdoor weddings because some people prefer one temperature while others prefer something else. These varying preferences can make it impossible to please everyone, so let go of the idea that everyone will feel comfortable.
One way to accommodate those who might be chilly when the sun goes down is to scatter some fleece throws around the venue space. Place a few baskets full of blankets in accessible spots. These are relatively inexpensive at your local dollar or trinket store, so don’t stress about how much it will cost. Your guests will appreciate the effort.
Invest in Luxurious Provisions
You can reduce a lot of the foot traffic from coming inside the home by providing outdoor provisions. You need to have a luxurious portable restroom trailer that your guests can use without worrying about messing up their nice wedding clothes in a porta-potty.
These provisions offer the same amenities as indoor facilities and provide ample space and sanitization measures. You can use the money you saved by having the wedding in your backyard to invest in these luxury comfort measures.
Consider the Type of Shelter You’re Offering
Weather significantly contributes to the overall success of your wedding. And even if the forecast calls for a sunny, blue-sky day, you have to consider the type of shelter you’re providing during the reception.
There are many benefits of using outdoor tents for your wedding, such as creating a private space and giving some protection from the weather. These tents give your guests a sense of security and protect everyone in case it decides to sprinkle.
Create Clear Boundaries for Guests
A part of drawing boundaries that separate the wedding venue from your home comes when you add portable restrooms and an outdoor tent. These spaces tell guests where they can relieve themselves and where dinner and dancing will occur.
It’s vital to remember that somebody still lives in the home, and you don’t want guests meandering, trekking dirty shoes in and out, or potentially risking theft. While you may trust everyone you invited, you may not know their plus ones. Eliminate these risks and create clear boundaries for your guests to follow.
Backyard weddings can be all things beautiful, comfortable, and luxurious. The limit doesn’t exist. Have fun in the planning phase, and get creative with the money you save from not renting a hall.
