If you would love to have your wedding take place in your backyard, your parents’ backyard, or a friend’s property, consider some of these lovely ideas for a lovely day, as documented by Jackie Wonders. The rustic look of a painted pink heart on wood as a background for the rings is just one of the unique touches employed in this day of whimsy and warmth. A simple slip dress and plain slipper-type shoes work well for outdoor festivities, when the less fuss you have to deal with, the better you’ll feel. From the rag-ribbon “canopy” over the couple to a spot where guests can have old-time photos taken, this particular backyard wedding’s key ingredient is a welcoming informality.

Follow the chalk directions to the various stops, whether it’s by the patio, pool, arbor, or in the library; an especially wonderful touch is the desk with vintage typewriter and cards, inviting guests to “type us a note,” a refreshing alternative to a stiff guest book. You have to love a bedecked table with “Delicious Desserts” as its sign — highlighting some truly delectable looking “puffs.” Note the sweet sentimentality of a “clothesline” of photographs and the careful instruction for photos, “Grab a prop and smile pretty.” Finally, even though you’re already outside, don’t forget…flowers, flowers, and more flowers can make the day, and they can even come from the yard itself. A little imagination can make your backyard wedding special — and memorable.
