When it comes to weddings, there really is no place like home. Maybe your parents have an amazing lakeside house, or Grandma has that perfect country cottage. But odds are your childhood homestead isn’t quite prepared for 150 wedding guests, 75 cars, 20 waiters, 15 tables, and 1 happy couple. Although it may be more work (and more expensive) than you anticipated, you won’t regret saying your vows in the place that means the most to you. It’s all about being prepared for what it takes to throw a wedding in your very own backyard.
There are many resources for wedding decor inspiration, and endless options as far as color schemes, florals, dessert, photography, and style are concerned. Mood boards are a great resource for pulling images into one place. This can be done the old fashioned way with bridal magazines, or by creating a board on Pinterest.
When working with a limited budget, a little DIY goes a long way. Don’t be afraid to take on a few of the details yourself. The chandelier, structure, gold glitter apples, and Mr. and Mrs. signs were all DIY projects, and each added something beautiful and unique to this wedding. If DIY isn’t your thing, Etsy is another wonderful source for budget friendly handmade items. Whatever method you choose, there are many ways to create the wedding of your dreams on a budget. Whether you’re having your wedding by a lake, at the beach, or in your own backyard, it is possible to create the look and feel you’ve been dreaming of.
