Choose an indoor-outdoor location, especially if you have older or pregnant guests, it’s essential to provide a cooler environment option for all. Don’t forget that the weather can change very fast, especially if these are tropics. What’s not to love about a outdoor wedding? They’re intimate, convenient, and perhaps best of all. But before you write off a backyard wedding as an overly casual affair that welcomes a rustic vibe only, know that there are endless ways to transform it into anything you want it to be. For an elegant, formal look, a tented reception can go a long way. Pull back gauzy curtains with vines of florals or greenery for a statement entrance, suspend chandeliers from above for a bit of ambiance, and bring reception tables to life with gilded candelabras and chic linens. Bringing the indoors out in the form of a luxe lounge area will also create a more elegant vibe.
But, of course, if you do want a rustic look, you can give it an elevated take by ditching the burlap in favor for a timeless trend — gorgeous greenery. Think a ceremony arch rich in cascading greens, runners of eucalyptus on polished wooden tables, or overhead centerpieces of wreaths. If you want to include lawn games during cocktail hour, lend them an air of sophistication with your own touch — stamp your initials on croquet balls or paint an oversized Jenga set to match your wedding colors. Lovely crafty touches included decorated jars for flowers, painted signs and a rustic photo booth. Every moment and more was captured so wonderfully for look these romantic photographs. Enjoy folks!
