Here is what you need to know if you’re considering having your wedding in your backyard. Obviously budget is a consideration but sometimes the main reason why couples wish to celebrate their big day in their backyard is simply wanting to be close to their family. Read this short guide that covers the pros and cons of a backyard wedding.
The Advantages of a Backyard Wedding
Spaciousness: Whether you have a modest backyard or you have your whole property to host the wedding, every space is filled with love. Once the wedding party enters your yard, they can freely move and mingle with the family and your guests. The atmosphere is intimate and filled with lots of love.
Contentment: Many people don’t like the idea of their backyard being a place of parties and having to close up the house in the evening. But if you are renting your home or are borrowing it from a friend, then the only thing you need to worry about is how much people stay the whole day. No need to worry about feeding your guests or doing damage control after the wedding.
Flexibility: This is probably the biggest advantage of this type of wedding. It can be many things. In fact, it can be anything you would like it to be. Your imagination and your budget are the limit.
The Disadvantages of a Backyard Wedding

However, there are certain aspects that would remain as they are. Capacity: Now this one can either be an advantage or a disadvantage depending on the size of your backyard but we assume that it might be smaller than the average wedding venue place.
