SMALL ELEVATED BACKYARD WEDDING IDEAS

SMALL ELEVATED BACKYARD WEDDING IDEAS

With the rise of the COVID-19 pandemic, engaged couples are choosing to host smaller micro-weddings to avoid large gatherings. Although your guest list may not be as long as you originally planned, you can still plan a dream wedding come true with these small, elevated backyard wedding ideas!

It’s All About the Details

What makes an intimate wedding so special? The people you celebrate with, of course! But, if you really want a day to remember with your loved ones, you’ll want to consider all the details involved with planning the event, such as the wedding invitation, your dress and accessories, the floral arrangement, table settings, food, music, and location.

Choose a Backyard Wedding Dress You Adore

Who says you can’t dress up a little for your small wedding? Of course, you should choose the wedding dress of your dreams, whether it’s simple, elegant, modern, or one fit for a ballroom! After all, this is your day, so you want to look fantastic and love what you wear.

Once you don your wedding dress, don’t forget all about the pretty accessories, like your shoes, jewelry, and veil. And you can’t forget that gorgeous wedding bouquet, which will make a perfect prop for fantastic photos.

Picking a Location for Your Backyard Wedding

Not every backyard wedding has to be in a backyard! You have the option of choosing a gorgeous nook in your own backyard or book a wedding venue that can set up for a beautiful micro-wedding, like a garden.

CHOOSING A FLORAL ARRANGEMENT FOR YOUR BACKYARD WEDDING

I recommend hiring an incredible wedding florist if possible. Your floral arrangement can make or break your wedding, and beautiful flowers can make for stunning wedding photos. Flowers can also be a gorgeous centerpiece for your wedding reception table. Speaking of reception tables, you can’t forget the little setting details like the name cards, flatware, and fine china.

Add some delicious food and a quartet, and you’ve got yourself a perfect small wedding! For more inspiration for an unforgettable micro-wedding, head over to Style Me Pretty. And if you’re thinking about having a small wedding abroad, check out this gorgeous French chateau elopement.
