Tips To Planning A Home Wedding

Here is what you need to know when planning a wedding at home.

Picking a wedding venue can be a stressful process, and you might realize that there is no place like home.  Whether it is your childhood home or your luxurious grandparent’s mansion, a home wedding can provide a comfortable and sentimental space for your big day.  With autumn right around the corner, it is the perfect time to decorate the backyard for a ceremony and reception that everyone will enjoy and remember for the years to come.

Plan Way Ahead

Planning is essential for any wedding especially if you want to get married on your and family member’s private property.  You need to find out if your backyard has enough space for all of your guests and if not you have to trim the guest list.  Home weddings are perfect for immediate family and close friends, so decide on the guest list shortly after getting engaged.  If you decide on having the house and backyard available to guests, plan on having enough rooms to fit all the guess in case there is rain.  Space will be the deciding factor on the size of the reception and the meal style.

Rent a Tent

Like traditional weddings, you will have to rent tables and chairs allowing for guests to sit during the reception.  But the key pieces of furniture during a home wedding are going to be large tents for guests to feel comfortable under.  Tents are the perfect design piece for any weather from rain showers to a bright sunny day.  A tent provides a place for shade for guests and is a great place for privacy during your reception.  The best thing about renting a tent is that someone else can set it up and take it down.

Personalize It

Having a wedding in your own home gives you more of an opportunity to customize the space fit your personal style.  Expand your home design by putting lights up in the backyard for guests to see as your reception stretches into nighttime.  Pick a theme for your wedding to make it fun and to make designing easy.  You can choose from a variety of themes from vintage to rustic and create the meal to fit the theme.
