Now that summer has finally arrived, you can start gathering all the essential elements for your special day!


garden wedding is an excellent option for anyone planning an intimate event with close friends and family. Although there are a couple of things to consider, apart from the officiant and the marriage license, here are 5 key backyard wedding ideas that will make your marriage ceremony truly unique:


Top-quality photography:

Wether you choose to hire a professional photographer or ask a friend to capture your big day, you are sure to end up with some amazing shots for your wedding album. 

Good lighting:

Your friends and family will definately apreciate the nice view when it's your turn to say "I do", plus your pictures are guaranteed to look amazing!


Chairs and cocktail tables:

As a simple courtesy to your guests!

Cocktail hour:

An excellent time to relax and enjoy your loved ones' toasts. 

Hors d'oeuvres: 

Because no one really expects a three-course meal at this particular type of event, the very least you could do is make sure you treat your guests to some delicious finger food. 


You may also want to consider a tent in case of rain, mosquito repelent and garden lamps for the evening.
