Intimate backyard weddings can still have the charm as the big wedding celebrations. Almost a year into this pandemic and many couples are still having to reschedule their wedding and/or cancel them. Some couples are having intimate backyard weddings instead. Having a backyard wedding doesn’t mean it has to be any less special. Venues don’t make weddings beautiful, the couple committing to each other does.

In addition, the best part of having one is you can basically do whatever you want; safely of course. There is so much flexibility to still make it your dream wedding and you save big time on venue costs.

Here are some tips to help your photographer make sure your images come out amazing:

  • Put string lights
    • String light looks extremely beautiful in pictures and makes it look romantic.
  • Ceremony light
    • This one is truly important. I recommend beginning your ceremony before the sun goes down to have the most romantic images. If you decide to have an evening wedding, your photographer might have to use flash and that may be distracting to your guests.
  • Decor
    • You can make your backyard wedding look truly amazing by having the right decor. Even big weddings would look empty without the right decor. If you’re on a budget, there are Facebook groups where brides sell their used decor for a fraction of the price.
  • Romantics location
    • With backyard weddings, you have the flexibility of choosing a nearby park for your romantics and family pictures.

Pro tip: Hire a team to make it stress-free. Trust me, you don’t want to worry about setting up anything or worry about the timeline on your day.

If your wedding has to be postponed, an intimate backyard wedding is a good alternative.
