Backyard Wedding


Recommended Posts

My fiancee and I are hoping to have an inexpensive backyard wedding next summer...any alternatives to DJ/dancing? What could guests "do" if they're not dancing?? There will be plenty for kids to do in the yard (trampoline/pool/big yard) so I guess adults will be mingling unless we get some fun ideas....

Thanks for your suggestions and Happy New Year!!

You could make it a pool party! Make sure you specify that on the invitations so people will bring swimsuits. You could also set up some outdoor games. Frisbee, backgammon (I think thats a game?), etc. Again, just make sure people know ahead of time because most people wouldn't want to get their dressy clothes sweaty.

Brun some CDs with favorite songs or apropriate music and have it piped out the window. Also, what about hiring a harist during the ceremony?? Or do you have any friends who play instruments well or play in bands? Does Aunt Matilda win piano competitions all the time and could wheel a keyboard into the yard?


I was at a wedding where they played mood music out the kitchen window but there were breaks when a very talented cousin played a cello solo, and the neighbor's grown son and 2 friends who were in a band played for about an hour.
