Fun backyard wedding ideas include wooden direction signs that tell guests where to go like road signs, wrap trees in lights and rent a tent in case of unexpected bad weather, notes Real Simple and BG Events & Catering. There are numerous ways to personalize a backyard wedding and keep costs down as well. Keep the amount of room the yard provides as planning takes place or the wedding may overflow the area or plans be changed at the last minute.
The wooden signs that are used as directions for the guest are cute and simple. They are reminiscent of medieval road signs, just simple arrows with words on them that point in various directions, states Real Simple. The sign can be any height to allow for multiple signs. Good area's to direct to include the ceremony, the reception, photos and perhaps the restroom depending on the set up of the ceremony.
Trees wrapped in lights are great for ceremonies and receptions that will continue once the sun has gone down. They give the yard a warm and inviting feel. Adding even more lights on tables with candles and lanterns just add to the feeling and give the area a beautiful elegant look.
Renting a tent can be a lifesaver. Most backyard weddings are in the spring, summer or fall, all times when inclement weather can come upon an area suddenly. The last thing any bride wants is for her wedding to be ruined by high winds or a down pour of rain.
