Backyard Weddings

It happens to most brides at some point in the planning process. The thought “we should just do a simple backyard wedding” crosses your mind. While it is possible to have a simple backyard wedding, it’s often much more involved than most couples realize.

Before we get into it, I want you to grab the free guide that I’m going to reference throughout this post. It's going to outline the step-by-step details that we're talking about here, as well as include a backyard wedding planning checklist.
