Celebrating your wedding in the backyard is a romantic way to enjoy one of the most memorable days of your life. A Spring backyard wedding can end up saving you thousands if not tens of thousands on a venue. Besides, home is where the heart is!
Be resourceful when choosing the setting for your outdoor wedding. If you need a little more space, see if you know somebody who has a large backyard that wouldn’t mind taking the honor of hosting your backyard wedding. Spring is the perfect way to mark the new beginning of a new chapter in your life!
Wedding Ideas for Spring Outside
There are many different ways that you can plan your backyard wedding. The size of your backyard may limit you on the number of invites you are able to send out but hey, that can be a good thing! A small backyard wedding can only lead to a stronger bond between those enjoying this shared experience. Time for everyone to get cozy and become one big happy family!
Spring is the season where flowers (and love) begins to bloom. Not only is the weather great, you can also enjoy a honeymoon season afterwards that is just as bright during the Summer months. This is just a glimpse of what could be. Tailor your backyard wedding to your preferences and let the scenery cater to you. Here are some of my favorite Spring Backyard Wedding Ideas for 2014!

Don’t forget to designate an area for the first dance!

6. Tree Stump Stands
Line the aisle with tree stumps and a petite floral arrangement to emphasize the natural ambiance that an outdoor wedding provides. Schedule the ceremony to commence an hour prior to sunset so that you can say your final “I do” when the sun is setting over your backyard wedding! A picture perfect moment. Later in the night, jubilance will ignite as you and your closest friends celebrate a night to remember!
7. Pew and Aisle
Invite your church family to enjoy the coming together of two souls. You can rent pews for a traditional feel. The bride will walk down the aisle and enjoy her shining moment as the melodic “Here comes the bride” plays in the background.
8. Chair Backs
Newlyweds can enjoy a playful seatback arrangement that designates a spot for the bride and groom at the head of the table. The whimsical Mr. & Mrs. chair backs are a fun way to add a giggle or two to your spring backyard wedding. Have the time of your life and your friends won’t even know you were planning on a budget! You can use craft paper or any durable canvas of your choice.
