8 More Tips For Making Your Backyard Wedding and Reception One To Remember
3. Decorate your backyard with a theme in mind!

You can check out your local thrift stores for candle holders, fake plants that make great accents or spend all of your time shopping online with us! No matter what you choose, we sure the theme and decorations at your wedding will be gorgeous and exactly what you want!
4. Make sure you rent a tent!
Even though rain is a sign of good luck, there are many brides, grooms and guests that would attest that they’d rather stay dry. Feel free to get married under the trees, under the sun or under the stars! It doesn’t matter where you decide to marry, but it’s important to understand that Mother Nature has control over all of us, including the weather on your wedding day. Having a backup plan including a tent that is setup and ready to use is a smart move, even if you don’t want to use it.
Ask vendors for prices about tent, chair and table rentals.
Call around to local vendors and ask for their prices, there are even some who will bargain with you. Additionally, if you’re wanting to save some cash, ask about bundle deals if you’re in need of tables and chairs for the reception/ceremony. Most tent vendors have chairs and table setup available.
