Backyard weddings have suddenly become extremely trendy. It’s no accident that I’ve recently had the opportunity to participate in beautiful backyard celebrations! They all made the most of their own backyards by including very cute, low-cost DIY wedding décor.
So, if you’re having a backyard wedding and need some DIY wedding décor inspiration, you’ve come to the right place! I’ll be talking about my experience throwing a backyard wedding reception.
Making DIY wedding decorations may appear scary at first, but it’s one of the best ways to display your personality on your wedding day if you’re a creative person!
I’ll save some money by throwing a backyard wedding party.
Booking the venue is one of the most expensive aspects of wedding planning. Yes, the bundles they put together are useful, but they are also expensive. You’ll save money on event space if you organize your wedding in your own garden, which is fortunate for you. Just because the venue space is free doesn’t mean you shouldn’t plan ahead—other expenses like a wedding tent, dinnerware, and furniture rentals can rapidly mount up, so figure out how much you can spend and keep an eye on the bottom line.
I grow a lot of flowers and utilize them in flower baskets.
In the summer of 2019, I married in the garden of my mother. As soon as my mother purchased the land, I knew I wanted to marry there. It had this wonderful, tranquil feeling, and I knew it would be ideal for my wedding.
I completely rebuilt the backyard from the ground up. We planted a lot of flowers that bloomed in February, took excellent care of the lawn, but most importantly, we made flower baskets and even dried rose petals from the garden for the bridesmaids to throw, which was a lovely touch.
My partner and I also had a ton of other entertaining ideas, ranging from smoke bombs to sparklers.
Our wedding had a rustic theme with a touch of glitz and glam. The pampas grass was used in the wedding decorations and flowers! One of the many advantages of a backyard wedding is that we may celebrate with our pets.
My wedding signs were handcrafted by myself.
They complimented us on how lively our wedding was, with plenty of bright colors and a festival vibe. We had an awesome lady gang to take shots with because I had eight bridesmaids.
We were certain that we’d employ our imaginations to create a variety of DIY wedding decorations. For the wedding, we made so many incredible signs and decorations that it was truly one-of-a-kind.
I dry flowers by hand and turn my garage into a nightclub.
My favorite part of our wedding was the hand-dried hydrangeas in various shades of blue that we produced. It was utilized for bouquets, table decorations, and the handcrafted arch for their wedding ceremony, which linked everything together flawlessly.
In addition to the hydrangeas, I utilized toitoi, branches, and tree leaves to create a natural-boho type arch. Because of how lovely it is, I can’t believe it’s handcrafted.
My hubby and I enjoyed our first dance on the front lawn under festoon lights that they had sourced and strung themselves. A band was playing our favorite songs on the balcony, which further added to the warm, welcoming environment.
We turned our garage into a nightclub for the reception, complete with laser lights, a boom system, and even a smoke machine. To demonstrate how fantastic things turned out, here’s a comment from one of the wedding attendees… “I’d gladly pay to be a member of this club!!!”
If you enjoy partying till the wee hours of the morning, a DIY back garden wedding allows you to do just that with your reception guests.
I’ll be able to keep things manageable.
A garden wedding is ideal for a smaller gathering. Because of the limited space, I won’t be able to invite coworkers, second cousins, or casual acquaintances to my wedding—only my closest friends and family will fit.
Plus, if someone questions why they didn’t make the cut, I can simply explain that space is extremely limited, and I’m saving the slots for VIPs such as my parents, grandparents, siblings, and a select group of close friends.
I’d like to keep it extremely casual.
A backyard wedding is where it’s at for me since I don’t want to arrange a grandiose event with a lot of bells and whistles. I can keep things relaxed and low-key, more akin to a backyard barbecue than a large banquet. This is ideal for couples that value their relationship more than the extravagant decorations and expensive entertainment.
If you have the space, you may completely transform your space with blankets, chiavari chairs, and luxurious linens, as well as circus acrobats and fire breathers.
After the wedding, I’ll be able to return home.
Honeymoon suites are unquestionably fantastic. Minibars, jacuzzi tubs, room service, and those ultra-fluffy bathrobes that make us feel like we’re in a cloud are all available. But, because I adore your bed above everything else, I’d probably want to return home after my wedding.
I’ll have all of my favorite toiletries on hand, as well as warm sheets and a refrigerator stocked with food (probably filled with wedding leftovers). Not to mention the extra cash I’ll have to spend toward my actual honeymoon.

There are so many reasons why I adore garden weddings, from the added emotion to the more relaxed atmosphere.
