10 Incredibly Romantic Backyard Wedding Ideas

It’s wedding season! Thinking about planning the perfect backyard nuptials? Check out this post first.

Spring has sprung and so has wedding season. While big blow outs are always nice there is something so intimate and endearing about backyard weddings. We all know that home is where the heart is, so what better place to build memories and tie the knot.

I’m not married yet, but like many other girls I have already started planning my dream wedding. Here are some of the ideas that are insanely romantic, elegant and absolutely beautiful:

1. Adorn the Pool

Struggling to figure out what you can do to make use of the pool at your wedding? Besides jumping in it at the end , try the idea above. Spray paint any hula hoop to match the color scheme of your wedding. Follow by filling the holes with fresh flower petals. 

2. Outsmart Mother Nature

Style Me Pretty 

If you’re going to be outside, you have to think ahead in terms of what the weather conditions will be like. Have a set amount of blankets or even umbrellas to help make your guests feel more comfortable. 

3. Create a Fun Photo Op For You and Your Guests

Who doesn’t love photo booths? If you do but aren’t able to get one for your outdoor wedding, you can achieve the same cute results by adorning surrounding trees with cute signs and such. Your guests will definitely love snapping some of their own photos for personal mementos. 

4. Decorate Surrounding Trees
