Backyard Wedding

Hi all, my fiance and I are planning on having a small intimate wedding. We are having the ceremony at our church and want to find a backyard for a small reception because our church is only allowing ceremonies at the moment. Anyone know of someone who would be willing to rent out their backyard for a small reception with about 50-75 people?

    I think I’ve heard people using AirBnb or Vrbo to find properties that people rent out their vacation homes for others, etc. Based on location of course!

    You may be able to rent out an airbnb. Just discuss with the host that guests would be outdoors

    Hi!

    Where are you located? There might be some farms or barns around your area that would be willing to host. You could even see if there are venues that would allow you to rent out lawn space?

    I'm not sure how Airbnb's will go right now. Last time I checked, they had group gatherings over 16 people banned until further notice due to the pandemic. VRBO might allow it though, it's pretty much like Airbnb.

    Airbnb currently has a ban on hosting events so unfortunately that's not going to be an option. I think finding someone on here with a large enough space in your area is going to be very difficult. If your date on here is correct, you have very limited time so I'm not really sure what advice to give you other than maybe seeing if a friend or family member has land that you could use. But at this point you are kind of behind if you want to get married in April of this year.

    As Veronica mentioned, rentals like Airbnb and VRBO currently have capacity restrictions in effect due to Covid, and I can't imagine they will be lifted in time for your wedding. Also, 50-75 people is not such a small wedding, but pretty decent sized! If you want to have your reception in a backyard this April, I think your best bet would be to find a family member or friend that can lend you their space. Otherwise, I would recommend looking into community centers

    Contact the local parks department (they all have websites) and find out which of their event facilities will work for you. They provide tables and seating and in most cases a kitchen..you bring in the rest.
