Have you considered planning an elegant backyard wedding? Maybe you want the sentimental value of holding your wedding at a place where you grew up or where you hold a special place in your heart.
Perhaps you’d like to invite your family and closest friends to an intimate day that feels more like a dinner party. Perhaps you’d prefer to host it at home to save money on a typical location… and pick any day you want. Whatever the reason, we adore the amount of personalization that a backyard wedding offers.
Elegant Backyard Wedding Ideas
You want to feel relaxed at your wedding, which is why you choose a garden setting, right? As a result, be sure to create the atmosphere you choose!
Do you want it to be more of a daytime garden party affair, with lots of lawn activities, or intimate and cozy with string lights? Consider your desired tone and theme before attempting to tie everything together.
Nature’s beauty is the beauty of an outdoor wedding. Backyards, farms, tree-covered places, and gardens can all be used to create a beautiful background for your wedding. Try one of these decor ideas to spice up your party.
Decide on the location of the ceremony and where guests will sit or stand. Is there a large tree in the area that could serve as a focal point, or are you working with an open grassy area? You can use anything from florals to DIY projects to create the stage.
We’ve seen couples decorate with old barn doors, loads of leafy greens, and even very small areas with lovely potted plants. Determine where you want the ceremony to take place and proceed from there.
After that, think about who will be joining you. Do you want people to encircle you or just stand in front of you? How would you describe the terrain?
Do you want tables strewn throughout the yard for the reception, or a large family-style table? Is there a dance floor on your wishlist? Is there enough room or will you have to install a floor?
An outdoor wedding celebration will benefit from the addition of a chandelier, which will provide light and elegance. You can also use a sturdy rope to suspend the chandelier from a large tree branch to take advantage of the natural outdoor atmosphere. If your wedding venue lacks trees, hang chandeliers from a handcrafted arbor and fill it with floating blossoms and lots of greenery.
Birdseed is a terrific alternative to traditional outdoor wedding confetti because it’s biodegradable and attracts birds! But don’t worry, because the birds are nervous around people, they won’t get in your way during the wedding.
You will have a yard full of feathered companions once the wedding is over. Plus, anything that isn’t eaten by the birds will naturally decompose, so you won’t have to pick up any confetti!
Make a fun DIY photo booth for your wedding by recycling old picture frames. Guests can pose for goofy portraits behind the frames or take pictures in front of them. You may also make a DIY photo booth by tying burlap or an off-white canvas fabric to trees or stands with bunting. Make your own simple outdoor wedding ideas photo booth by using your imagination!
If you’re having a garden wedding, make sure there’s enough seating for everyone. The bench seen above is sturdy and easy to construct using common tools, but it also has a refined appearance. To seat all of your guests, learn how to make this bench as well as the related Viking table. The best part is that both the table and the bench were made for about $200!
Your wedding guests will need a place to dance, and dancing in heels on the grass isn’t a good idea. It’s also a recipe for a twisted ankle.
You can make a dance floor out of repurposed wood pallets in your backyard with a little effort and money. Add a playful touch to the dance floor by painting a black and white checkerboard pattern. Your guests will have a great time dancing the night away with a clearly defined dance area.

Any shade of blue is a great choice for groomsmen’s wedding suits because it’s both sophisticated and fun. For a laid-back beach style, skip the tie, or go all-out for a summer wedding outfit.
Make your cakes as simple as possible! For a simplistic, naturalistic look, drape a modest white wedding cake with foliage and arrange it in a shallow dish. Red velvet cake is paired with cream cheese filling and buttercream frosting on the inside.
Also, a plain white cake with textured stripes on the top layer and a delicate flower design on the bottom layer can be transformed. Fall leaves add a subtle, rich color to the room, giving it an autumnal feel.
