Who is having a backyard Wedding?

Hello Brides! I was wondering who else had or planning to have a backyard wedding? This is what my fiance and I have agreed on doing, mostly DIY when it comes to everything to save money. Our plans:
- Rent a secluded AirBnB (checked for available "family reunion" places)
- Pay for a local bbq catering (we will have to pick up and set up ourselves)


We are only inviting about 22 people (includes bride and groom). We will have a playlist on our phone for music, and will be bringing simple table decorations. Our wedding is in late October or early November. Does anyone have pictures of their at home wedding decoration? I think I want to rent two long tables and set that up as our reception dinner area. Please give me DIY ideas Smiley smile

    I'm going with VRBOSmiley smile

    For interior décor, I would suggest paper garlands or other paper products that are affordable and take up more space. Or hang paper lanterns from the ceiling. For the table, you could do arrangements that have ornamental cabbage; they look like giant rose heads and will be easy to find in the Fall. (You can find some cool inspo photos on Pinterest)

    That's awesome! We live in Colorado near the mountains so it will be cold lol. That's why we need a place, and no one in my family or friends has their own place, all are apartments.

    Those are such great ideas, thanks! I never have heard of ornamental cabbage haha. I also looked on VRBO, so I'm glad I'm not the only one looking at these sites Smiley smile

    Of course! I think it's a great option and I'm not sure many people with a smaller ceremony consider it. WAY cheaper than renting a venue for a few hours!
