A backyard wedding fulfills the idea of an intimate gathering; plus, it’s not that expensive to pull off. Tying the knot with only the nearest and dearest in attendance also seems the most practical choice in the time of COVID-19.
As the venue for the wedding ceremony and party, the yard definitely demands special and serious attention. And here are ways to make sure it will be at its best for the occasion, along with other necessary preparations.
It all starts with a lush, well-manicured lawn, where the exchanging of vows, merrymaking, and picture taking happen.
From planting new flowers and manicuring the grass to decorating the space with lights and other elements, you can create a stunning backdrop for your nuptials, and great photos in order to create a wedding photo book that is captivating. Utilize spaces in the lawn that would make for interesting seating or prop areas, such as a gazebo or a small treehouse. You can also plant flowers in vibrant hues to bring out the beauty of the natural environment and make it look even more beautiful in your photos.
Do you need months or days to prepare your lawn for the wedding? That would depend on many things, such as the grass variety and the work required to plant a new lawn or fix brown patches. You may also have to level your yard to remove bumps that could cause accidents or drainage problems.
Keeping your lawn hydrated is essential if you want it to look green and great on the big day. Water early, deeply, and once or twice a week. Also, check that every part of your sprinkler system works properly to water effectively and efficiently. For any worn or faulty valves, find new sprinkler valves or replacement parts at a Sprinkler Supply Store.
There are two more things to make your outdoor space “wedding-ready”:
With your yard cleaned and cleared out (or in the process), it’s easier to see the lay of the land and how much space you have. Visualize where to hold the ceremony, set up the reception, the dance floor, the DJ’s booth, and many moving parts.
For your vision to materialize, draw a backyard layout incorporating these items:
Rain on your wedding day supposedly brings good luck and creates a romantic atmosphere for photos. It also means keeping tents ready or setting them up to provide shade from the sun as well. Umbrellas are handy too.
That’s just the weather and the uncertainty it brings. Here are more things to think about when you create your wedding day survival plan:
Ensure that you are insured or possess adequate coverage for the backyard wedding. Also, obtain the necessary permits to host the event at home.
Take this opportunity to inspect and address issues that could affect the comfort and safety of everyone in the home. For example, you may have to rent a generator or add a new bathroom.
Aside from repairs, you can carry out home improvements that don’t cost much. Spring cleaning, repainting, and using rugs in high-traffic areas are some ways to upgrade your home on a budget.
Indeed, the success of a backyard wedding rests on the lawn and more. Prepare today, get married tomorrow.
