Does the idea of a backyard wedding make you cringe and think of plastic tablecloths and sporks? It most certainly does not have to. Wisconsin is a beautiful location for a backyard style wedding. With sprawling stretches of land with stunning views of the many lakes, Lake Geneva backyards are incredibly desirable. So how to mix the concept of a wedding with a backyard celebration? It is all in the details!
Venue: Rental House
With fantastic sites such as Airbnb and VRBO, why not rent a large home for your wedding? Choose from locations with great yards, easy access for guests, and even rooms for you to change in or family members to stay in after your wedding. Be sure to check with your host first to make sure that they don’t mind festivities of that magnitude at their location. With a rented home, you can utilize the entire property as well as bring in whatever catering company you would like!
Dress: Leila Hafzi
A stunning dress with floral inspirations, no matter how rustic your venue, this dress truly heightens the elegance of your wedding!
Bridesmaids dresses for backyard weddings should be flowing and comfortable no matter what the length. Choose a a traditional dress in a great cut or go for a more boho chic look and really enjoy the outdoors with your girls.
This is the moment to truly shine and bring your character and love into your wedding. Forget typical seating arrangements and do what feels great to you! We love a long rectangular table whether it is a farm style dinner table or a more formal piece that seems like it goes on for miles. Wonderful lighting and great simple greenery on the tables can take something simple to something stunning.
Consider using gorgeous wildflowers for your bouquets. While less formal, they have beautiful colors and interesting textures. They can accent a wedding dress flawlessly!
Use local produce and, of course, amazing Wisconsin cheese. Don’t worry about presenting it too particularly. The beauty of the food speaks for itself!
With a great nod to Wisconsin summer camps, think about utilizing a canoe for a floral display or a great way to offer your guests a beverage!
