We all have that vision of the perfect wedding day. Organising a remarkable wedding is everything but easy and the goal is to try and make your dreams become a reality. The sound of birds chirping in the trees, the scent of flowers and the sensation of a soft breeze caressing your cheek…yes, the perfect wedding day doesn’t require expensive venues and pricey decorations. It can be organized right there in your own garden with just a bit of help from good old Mother Nature and some handy tricks.
Organising a big event in nature has many perks. Not only is your venue completely free, but your venue equals as your wedding décor as well. Your natural surroundings are going to be your biggest advantage, but you’ll need to start preparing your garden on time. The best time to throw a garden wedding is at the beginning of spring when nature is awakening, flowers are blooming and trees are embellished with lush green leaves. This means that you’ll need to start with land cultivation, planting, and landscaping a few months prior, so everything will be ready for your big day.
One of the best things about throwing a garden wedding is being able to leave your personal mark on one of the biggest days of your life. Of course, the fact that you’ll have an opportunity to greatly save on different costs is also quite a perk. By asking favors from your closest friends and family members you can easily create an extraordinary wedding setting by using just a bit of time and wit. DIY decorations, lighting and catering can make a huge difference on your special day, both in a financial and creative way.
Rent On Time
Of course, it’s important to keep in mind that you won’t be able to do everything by hand and that it’s going to be necessary to rent certain items. No matter how well-maintained your lawn is, it’s not going to be possible to do your first dance on the grass, so renting out a dance floor is a priority. Also, portable toilets are a good idea, especially if you’re expecting a lot of guests. While you may be able to rustle up a few tree stomps and improvised seating to seat your guests, tables, chairs and linen are also something to think about.
Have A Backup Plan
Even if you plan everything thoroughly and check the weather forecast, there’s always a chance of weather disasters. In order to make sure that your wedding day goes as planned, it’s important to have a plan B. The best way to do this is to cover your venue by placing a tent or gazebo. Putting up commercial shade sails is also a smart decision, as it can provide protection from sudden showers, or shield from strong sun.
Do I Need Permission?
If you wish to avoid your wedding day being cut short, then it’s recommended to notify your neighbors about the upcoming party, so you’d avoid any possible incidents, complaints and unpleasantness as a result of loud music, too many people etc.
That enchanted vision of how your happily ever after will begin is usually permeated with luxury venues, beautiful décor and smiling faces of your loved ones. By making a few wise decisions and putting in some effort, you can easily throw an opulent wedding in your backyard without breaking the bank.
