I’ve always loved the idea of backyard weddings. There’s something so intimate about tying the knot in the place where you grew up and it’s a wonderful excuse to invite all of your childhood friends over again. One of my darling brides has expressed that she would love to tie the knot in her parent’s backyard and we’ve been in a planning frenzy getting all of our ideas ready to go! We’re so excited to see how her backyard reception turns out and we were pleasantly surprised when we realized how much money this would save her. She’s planning an elaborate honeymoon with all of her savings!

In my experience, buffet-style backyard wedding receptions are usually best. They allow guests to serve themselves (perfect for picky eaters!) and indulge in whatever their dietary needs allows. Serve your backyard wedding guests a variety of cookies, cupcakes, and pastries. No matter the flavor, your guests are sure to find a dessert they love!
