5. Keep The Tab Open!

Weddings feel a little incomplete without a bar these days. That being said, even if you decide on a backyard wedding, if you have space, add a small bar to your event and style them according to your theme. It doesn't have to be something over the top, but if you choose to have a bar, we suggest decorating it in a fun way!

6. Table Arrangements Ideal For Backyard Weddings

Having tables at your intimate wedding may be optional. However, if you do decide on them, then you have to be smart about it. You cannot cram a tonne of tables into your wedding venue, because backyards have limited space. Keeping that in mind, here are a few ways you can add some table arrangements to your wedding without cramming the space.

7. Cosy Corners For Guests

Whether it is your mehendi or your wedding day, having lovely and cozy corners for your guests to sit on is important. If you're skipping the tables and chairs, then opt for couches or other comfortable items that can serve as a seating area for you and your guests.

8. If Your Backyard Has A Tree...

Then make sure to utilise it. Add various kinds of decor elements to your backyard tree (or trees) and make a part of your celebration! You could use the branches to hang decorative items, or wrap your tree up in fairylights. Even better, you could utilise this flora and turn it into a tree mandap!

9. Add Cute Vintage Elements

What's old can be new again. Though not new, vintage decor truly is a gorgeous element to add to your weddings. Tiny vintage elements can be eye grabbing and adds a whimsical essence to the event.
